Topic - Ford focus steering noise help

Ben Sharp - on 09 Feb 2013
Another thread requesting mechanical help I'm afraid.
It's a 2001 ford focus estate, 1.8 petrol.

For the past few weeks I've been getting a noise only on main roads while driving straight or turning left, but it stops when turning right. The car drives in a straight line on it's own (with hands off) but the steering wheel is slightly right hand down when going straight, by about 10 degrees off straight. Apart from that there are no other steering problems, no noise driving around town or when moving the wheel stationary and no clunks or bumps when steering.

The noise is a motor like, resonating sound which gets louder the further left I turn while driving on the A roads, anything above 45-50mph ish.

There's no play in the wheel and the CV joints look fine.

Any suggestions welcome,
