  1. Hey guys, Keep in mind I'm no mechanic. This post is to add search results to the internet for someone like me who couldn't find the things I wanted. The A/C on my 2008 ford edge has always been horrible since I purchased it in 2010 and possibly even declining ever since then.. Within the last few weeks: When making a turn splashing noise from glovebox. Ac blower fan very noisy. Water leaking on passenger side into floorboard. I started off by removing the glove box and the cover beneath it(snap screws). Found a napkin sucked to the intake where the RECYCLE AIR vent opens. Oh dear, I see where this is going. Then I removed the blower fan. 3 screws and unplug the electrical plug (easy job). Water the color of pepsi leaked out of it like crazy as I pulled it off. Ran my hand around the inside of where the fan sat thinking I'd find some material. Nothing. Next move was I knew A/Cs sweat water and that must be what the deal was. I got on the interwebs and searched for words I could think of relating to a/cs and found the condenser being the part that sweats, I started to look for the drain plug on my ford edge under the hood. WRONG lol Id only be so lucky. I even went as far as driving it up on ramps and could not find the drain. Apparently it's there but behind something that has to be removed. BLAH I thought ok maybe the clog lies within the drain pan and I can attack it there. Instead of laying under a car on ramps I had no idea if they would give and the car crush me. I started looking around to remove it. NO GO. Next was find where the hose drains from the pan to under the car BINGO. I found it on a diagram here on the web. It's under the carpet right next to where your foot rests on the gas pedal. Pulled the hose off the white plastic connector. No water came out..Hrmph well well I was right the clog was in the pan. I thought oh damn there is something sucked in there that came from the glovebox and I'm screwed. I Saw some guys on youtube use a compressor to blow theirs clean(from the outside of the car). Not having a compressor the next best thing I could think of was to use my mini shopvac and reverse the hose to blow. I chose to blow back towards the drain pan because what if there is a huge napkin in there and If I use suck it will lodge it even further in the hose. Used my hand to make the seal from the shopcav attachment to seal it to the hose line. Blew for 10 secs removed nothing happened. Blew again for about 10 secs and boom water started gushing out. I bet there was 1/2 gallon of water that came out. I had a large bowl ready to catch most of it. The rest hit the floor, oh well I have a shopvac. :P Put everything back together. Watched under the car to see if it was leaking. All good now. I will never know what the blockage was. Was it a napkin, receipt or outdoor debris?? Who cares it's draining now and The A/C is colder than it has ever has been! Happens again I'll repeat. The blower fan is ruined though and forever noisy. Replacements are $50 online. I guess I'll rock it till the wheels fall off and am forced to replace it. Jerry Oh P.S., I think that water has been backed up for years breaking down whatever process happens making the air cold. It really is colder than it has ever been. (insert technical reason here)
  2. Hello ford owners, I have this issue that started 2 weeks ago, when starting my car while cold and has been sitting for ~6 hours or more I get this loud screeching metal grinding kind of noise. the car is Ford edge 2013 with the Duratec 3.5L, it has 240k Km on the clock. these two videos can explain the noise heard. I don't think it's the starter because it only happens when the car is cold. it might be one of the pulleys, probably the alternator ? would appreciate any suggestions. thanks.
  3. I have a 2013 SEL Edge with 5,000 miles on it. The vehicle made a clunk noise when braking at low speeds. You could feel the clunk in the armrest between the driver and passenger seat. I took the vehicle back to ford dealer and they said they found a loose bolt somewhere on the rear motor mount. I took the vehicle, and the noise is still there. It doesn't sound serious but it makes me wonder if it is a safety issue or if the car will eventually breakdown on the highway. I'm taking the car back to the dealer tomorrow to see if they can find out what the heck it is. I think it may be the driveshaft dampener mount or what ever you want to call it. That is the only mechanical part in the area that the noise and the fell of the noise is coming from. I think that when I brake the car downshifts causing the driveshaft to bump this mount and then sends the vibration up into the car. The bump and clunk happen intermittantly and only when I am braking at low speeds i.e. 20 - 10 mph. The dampener has a rubber mount in it to absorb vibrations, but I think it may be defective and that is why I get these thumps, clunks, bumps. Any thoughts? Mark

    Clicking sound under front passenger seat

    Hi, everyone, Thanks in advance for any help you can provide! I have a 2017 Ford Edge Sport. Totally love it, but for the past several months, there has been a clicking sound under my front passenger seat. It occurs while driving on rough pavement or while going over any sort of bump. It sounds like somebody shaking a pair of dice in their hand. I can hear it whether or not anyone is sitting in the seat. If I adjust the seat position a bunch, it will sometimes stop briefly, but then it resumes again. I had my shop look at it, and they adjusted the lumbar support, because they said it was loose. However, that did not stop the clicking sound. It sounds like something is loose and just needs to be tightened up, but I can't find what that may be. Any suggestions? Thanks again!
  5. Our 2015 Ford Edge recently started a rattle noise when we start the engine. The noise goes away when we start driving and comes back again when we stop in a signal or take turns. We thought something not right. So, we took it to the dealership the next day. What dealership told us they think it's a broken flexplate and they gave me an estimate of 6,000$-8,000$ to fix that issue. The dealer asked Ford if they will cover the repair and Ford said they will only cover 1,450$. The edge has 66,000 miles on it, which is just over 6K miles from there 60,000 miles warranty. I have friends who work at Ford. After talking to them and reading a few other forum articles regarding this issue what I found out it is a very common issue for Ford, which is almost always a manufacturing fault. Ford even recalled certain run time Edge for that exact same issue. I asked my dealer why Ford is not covering all which is basically their manufacturing fault and they asked me to call Ford customer care directly. I just called them and they are basically blabbering the same thing saying we support what dealership recommends. If dealership thinks Ford will cover then Ford will otherwise just keep the receipt in case Ford decided to cover that in future. This is insane!!!!!!!!!!! FORD DOESN'T WANT TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY OF THEIR OWN FAULT". They expect their customer to spend 5,000$ on a repair just after 4 years. Obviously a crack never happens suddenly. If probably started way before 60K miles. It's only large enough now to create a noise. A flexplate crack means there's something else wrong and ford should take responsibility for that. They can't expect their customer to pay expensive repairs on a new car. Should I take my car to a different dealership or a different repair shop to check? I can't afford 5,000$ repair.
  6. Hi guys , I noticed that a lot of you guys have had this mysterious sound in front of your trucks and that nobody can't find, well I doug in deep this afternoon and found the problem for most of your mysterious aggravating sound in front cradle: if you have the original lower control arm ( because Ford has a new upgraded one now) the soldering around the bracket of your links bars on the control arm rusts , breaks , separate and makes an aggravating clunking sound at low speed!! See pic , so just have to purchase and install the new upgraded one and no more noise or whatever sounds in the front of your Edge!!
  7. Our 2013 Edge Limited 3.5L (with Dual Control Heater) is developing a squeak from the dash area. The sound is hard to describe but it sounds like a rubber vacuum actuator opening or closing and the rubber squeaks. EEEEKKK is what it sounds like. It was infrequent but now happens enough that my wife is starting to notice it. It is strange in that it can happen right after we shut off the car and we are still sitting inside. We also notice it at idle or when driving slow, on the highway the road noise would probably drown this out. I see that many folks are replacing the blend door actuator, which is what I suspect but has anyone had one that makes noise? Of course, when I remove the lower dash panel and listen for it it does not seem to make the noise. Thanks in advance for any help.

  9. If any of you are like me, rattles can drive you absolutely mad and can take away from the experience of an otherwise great vehicle. I dealt with many rattles in my Fusion, one requiring countless trips in for service before a dealer was able to get it resolved. I was bummed to pick my Edge Sport up last week with 2 factory installed rattles with 20 miles on the odometer. One was coming from the drives back door trim panel, the other from the cargo area. Below are the notes the service tech wrote up regarding the two rattles in my Edge, both are now resolved thankfully. "Customer states driver side rear door trim seems to be squeaking. Sound is similar to rubber on rubber noise. Road tested and verified customers noise concern. Removed left rear door trim panel and applied flock tape to the upper area near the inner belt seal. Reinstalled door trim. Road tested after repair and noise is gone." "Customer states there is a noise coming from rear cargo area or possible the vista roof when going over bumps. Sounds like plastic is looks and rattling. Road tested and verified customers noise concern. Installed cashes ears and road test. Found noise coming from the rear hatch around the weather seal area. Adjusted bump stops and applied silicone lube to rubber stoppers. Road tested and noise is gone." Let's use this thread to document, troubleshoot, and post solutions to our rattles.
  10. I have been dealing with various noises in my 2015 Edge Titanium V6 since day one. The latest been a high pitch rattle in the front cabin. Initially I thought the rattle was coming from the passenger side, near the A pillar. I managed to eventually track down the central console cup holder as the source, much to my surprise. The high pitch rattle goes away whenever I put pressure on the cup holder. I plan to schedule a service visit with the dealer to see what they can do. Has anyone else experience a similar problem with your Edge?
  11. Hi friends Got a rattle coming from my 2015 Edge Sport. Its most audible primarily while idling, and it seems to be coming from the passenger side rear area. Here's a video of the sound: Any ideas?

    Front vibration noise

    Our 2013 SEL has a slight vibration noise that seems to be coming from the phone antenna above the front windshield. Has anyone else had this problem and what was done to fix it?
  13. Attached is a video of the engine mount moving and the transmission torque mount moving. Diagnosis is fairly easy and can be very dangerous so DO NOT HAVE ANYONE UNDER THE CAR. Here is the video.

    Ford Edge Owner

    I purchased a 2013 Edge Limited about 3 months ago from a dealer here in Michigan. Have a noise (whining) starting at about 45 mph with noise sounding like a loud hum. In reading other forum posts, this noise seems to be somewhat common in the Edge. Took the car back to the dealer and they said it was a tire noise. They rotated the tires and said to give it some time to "wear" on the new location. This did not stop the noise. I just purchased four new tires and the noise is still there and even louder. Any idea what this may be?
  15. Whenever I turn from a stop sign and the front wheels lose traction I hear a grinding gears sound. It won't make the sound if I gas it to break traction going straight and AWD seems to be working perfectly. I did hear it one time when I was leaving a stop on a hill covered in a sheet of ice and snow. We have had 4 or 5 days of sub zero temperatures. I don't know if that could make a difference. It doesn't matter if I'm turning left or right and the sound is coming from the front end. Does anyone know what this is? 2007 Ford Edge

    vacuum leak sound

    My wife's 2007 Edge has within the week developed a hiss or vacuum leak sound from the engine area. We hear it on the freeway with slight acceleration. Also the trans sometimes shifts erratically, ie lurching.? Any ideas?

    Low-RPM Noise

    Hello. I have a 2012 Limited with EcoBoost and I'm hearing what sounds like a rattling or vibration sound coming from the front part of the vehicle during low RPMs (at a stop light, idling, etc.). I started noticing this problem about a month ago but my friend says since the EcoBoost engine is smaller than the V6/V8, it will produce some vibration or rattling since the engine housing is not custom-fitted for the EcoBoost. Excuse my skepticism, but I'm not 100% sold on that fact. One other friend suggests that the noise is coming from where the windshield and A-pillar meet and they're rubbing together. Either theory seems shaky. Has anyone else experienced this problem or something similar to this? I haven't seen a Ford mechanic yet; I wanted to get any similar stories on here if I could. Thanks.
