DRIVELINE WHINE 20-45 MPH (32-72 KM/H)

FORD:
2001-2006 Escape

MERCURY:
2005-2006 Mariner

ISSUE
Some 2001-2006 Escape and 2005-2006 Mariner vehicles equipped with a CD4E transaxle may exhibit a driveline whine at 20-45 MPH (32-72 Km/h) during light acceleration or deceleration. The sound may be more pronounced on vehicles equipped with steel wheels.

ACTION
If the whine noise occurs at the specified speed range 20-45 MPH (32-72 Km/h) during light acceleration or deceleration, install new dampened halfshaft assemblies. The revised halfshafts are designed to minimize the whine, however, a small amount of noise may be inherently characteristic. The dampened axle halfshafts will not correct driveline noises below or above 20-45 MPH (32-72 Km/h). Refer to Workshop Manual Section 307.
