ROTATIONAL CLICKING NOISE FROM 17 INCH
CHROME WHEEL CLADDING - BUILT BEFORE
211/2009 - EXCLUDES HYBRID

FORD:
2008-2009 Escape

MERCURY:
2008-2009 Mariner

ISSUE
Some 2008-2009 Escape and Mariner vehicles (excludes Hybrid), built before 2/01/2009 and equipped with 17 inch chrome clad wheels, may exhibit rotational clicking noise from the chrome cladding (attached to rim) during slow speed parking lot type maneuvers.

ACTION
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.

SERVICE PROCEDURE
NOTE
FRONT WHEELS MAY EXHIBIT NOISE MORE THAN REAR WHEELS DUE TO WEIGHT OF THE POWERTRAIN.

1. Verify noise is coming from the chrome cladding on wheel(s) by driving slow parking lot type maneuvers at speeds less than 10 MPH (16 km/h).

2. Mark wheel(s) exhibiting noise, rotate rear wheels to the front, evaluate unmarked wheels for noise, and mark any additional wheel(s) exhibiting noise.

3. Replace marked wheel(s) exhibiting noise with updated service parts per Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 204-04.
