REAR BRAKE NOISE

FORD:
2005-2008 Escape Hybrid

MERCURY:
2006-2008 Mariner Hybrid

ISSUE
Some 2005-2008 Escape and Mariner Hybrid vehicles may exhibit a cyclical rear brake noise during low speed driving, going around corners and/or when driving in wet conditions. The noise results from a lack of parking brake use causing corrosion buildup inside the drum-in-hat parking brake surface and parking brake shoes becoming off-center. The parking brake should be set each time the vehicle is parked to prevent this concern.

ACTION
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.

SERVICE PROCEDURE
While in a parking lot, not exceeding 20 MPH (32 Km/h), lightly apply the parking brake bringing the vehicle to a stop. Shift the vehicle to park. Then, with foot off brake, release the parking brake, reapply and release. Per vehicle's owner guide, advise the customer to set and release the park brake each time the vehicle is parked to prevent this concern.

WARRANTY STATUS: Eligible Under Provisions Of New Vehicle Limited Warranty Coverage
IMPORTANT: Warranty coverage limits/policies are not altered by a TSB. Warranty coverage limits are determined by the identified causal part.
