The seal and half-shaft have always been available alone but now the bushing is available without getting the case half. The TSB10-01-05 still lists the case half as it can be damaged also. The case half includes the seal and bushing.

What a waste of space, huge pictures of your cars, lists of cars you've own, addons, etc!

The dealer called and said the vehicle is all set. Both seals replaced. We shall see how long they last. I will have them show me when I pick it up exactly where the seals are so I can check them. One sign of a return leak and it goes back.

Let me know what they tell you... I will want to look for myself on my vehicle even though it's a 2009. I am getting an interior trim piece replaced under warranty (my second!)

Not to hijack the thread....but what needs to be changes through warranty in your interior. Thanks

One of my rear trim pieces fell off when one of my buddies accidentally gave it his shoulder... and the dealership took that in as a warranty repair. The door for the sunglasses holder started cracking because I used it to hold my magnetic parking pass... and they just got the part to replace that a few days ago.

Shh! don't tell my dealership. :D

They replaced the right and left front axle seals. That was it. The work order listed the seal replacement, cleaned the axles, checked for any wear and reassembled. Checked for leaks afterwards.

I have a 5 month old 2009 Escape 4 cylinder and the axle seal started leaking. This then began a chain of events that are as follows:
Engine started bucking, no engine light went on
Engine would not shift from 1st to 2nd smoothly- although it is automatic transmission
front driver side axle needed to be completely replaced due to axle seal leaking
took car in and 2 WEEKS LATER, THEY CANNOT FIND THE BUSHING NEEDED TO DO THE REPLACEMENT

they will not pay for a rental and they do not have a loaner system at this dealership. the car is on the lift, no front tires and the engine is in pieces.

I received confirmation dealership this is a wide spread issue and the parts are hard to come by since they are in the midst of a 'remodel'.

I will never get another ford and if anyone buys this car, good luck!

Ouch. Not a terrific 1st post huh? I will keep checking those seals. It is either a.) fixed and no leaks or b.) not fixed and it keeps leaking. If it keeps leaking I will go back 50 times if needed. Each and everytime I go back I will demand a rental or loaner of some sort. I paid for an extended warranty and I WILL get a working vehicle one way or another.

Sorry for your new car issues. :(

Nothing like this with our car, or any Ford I've ever had, front or rear drive. :shrug:

I'll keep going back to Ford. Better reliability than just about any other car on the road, so your options are limited. Just my opinion based upon big numbers and facts. For comparisons sake. CR, says it's even better than the site below does.

No rah-rah blather, just some info. Check this thread out: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=548&p=80988&hilit=members+numbers#p80988
