I'm glad to hear your Escape's issues were resolved! Please don't hesitate to message me if the concerns return and you would like my assistance!DaveJ said:This is an update on the clunk. The noise came back shortly after my original post and I just lived with it because the dealers said it was "normal". Last week I had the Escape in for repair of the 1/2 shaft oil leak. The dealer replaced the entire shaft (not just the 1/2 shaft) and now it doesn't clunk anymore and hopefully doesn't leak fluid either.
