I own an early model 09' Edge, purchased in 01/09. I have a broken "Tone Ring", (a small break between the teeth), on the front driver's side hub. I removed the wheel to verify this. Naturally I now have 3- warning lights showing on my dash, ABS, Anti-Skid & a Wrench (icon). After weeks of searching the web for this particular 'tone ring', it's not available for an 09' Ford Edge.

Other Ford's have this 'tone ring available for about $10.-$15. Takes about 1-hr. to replace, ( drive the old ring off & press the new one on). On Ford's that do not have this ring available your required to buy the entire "Half-Shaft" at a cost from $150. - $250. (auto parts store). Apparently, these rings are an integral part of the "Half-Shaft" & must be sold as a hole unit.

I can visually see the broken ring on my vehicle, (it's not an integral part), & it would be very easy to access this piece & pry it off & press on a new one, (if one was available).

Here's my question, has anyone else encountered this issue & ended-up with a better solution. I'm open to all ideas or solutions, even a web link, name, address or ph.#.

Spending an absorbent amount of money for a very inexpensive fix seems ridiculous.

This problem started last fall, I live in the Midwest, I drove this car all winter in snow & ice & the vehicle handled beautifully, but starring at those idiot lights become very annoying!

I regret paying the extra $1500. for these features.

If you read clear to this point, I want to thank you & I hope someone can be of help!   Thanks.

I don't think that you had a choice in buying these $1500 things.  ABS, Antiskid and traction control I believe were standard on all Edges since they were introduced in 07.  Anyway,  at least ABS was and that would have had the same tone ring you had to replace.  I agree that it would be nice to have parts broken down into their components.  It would be an inventory nightmare for Ford to stock that many different parts.  Most of the parts are supplied by outside suppliers who sell only complete assemblies to Ford.  Think of it like a television.  a board goes bad you replace it.  You can probably replace a diode but most people would rather plug and play.

I had the same problem, the ring appears to be pressed on and rust under the ring causes the ring to split and become loose.  I used a wire brush to clean the hub and ring then used JB Weld to hold it in place.  My only issue now is traveling greater than 80-85 MPH the light comes on for ABS/traction control.  I use it a reminder I should not be driving that fast.  It's been two years and no problems.

Replacing the whole axle has generally been the solution. I have not seen any other type of repair.

Bringing this thread back from the dead since I couldn't find any repair solutions when I came across this. Ford still does not sell the tone ring individually, but can be repaired.

 

My write up found here:

I can vouch for suprsteve's solution linked above. Worked for me. I'm writing this the day after I did the install, so cant say right now how it'll hold up, but as of right now I saved myself $$$ and car is riding perfectly. Should I get an alignment? Took it on highway and she was dead straight. 

 

Have to get the tires rotated anyway and I don't think I've gotten alignment in 110000, soooo...maybe I answered my own question.
