Had the Edge up on a lift and noticed that the passenger side CV boot (outer) has started to split. I did a little research and it looks like for the price it’s cost effective to replace the axle assembly as opposed to just the boot. On that note it also looks like getting the old drive axle out could be a real pain in the a$$. Anyone had any luck or suggestions. Also I found this document at: http://www.skf.com/binary/81-66360/457377.pdf that is listing the torque specs/procedure for the wheel bearings. Does this look correct? I want to confirm. Thanks As stated on the above link: FDE Tighten old wheel hub, adjusting nut to 258 ft-lbs/350 Nm to seat the half shaft. Remove and discard the old wheel hub nut. With the vehicle raised up, apply the brake so the half shaft will not rotate, and install a new wheel hub nut. Tighten nut to 258 ft-lbs/350 Nm. Do not attempt to tighten the nut with the vehicle on the ground or the wheel bearing will be damaged. Tighten the new wheel hub nut to specification within 5 minutes of starting it on treads. Always install a new wheel hub nut after loosening or when not tightening in the specified time.
Thank you for wanting to play Name that Noise! Before you listen to the audio recording of the noise, here are your clues: 2014 Ford Edge SEL FWD Only 17,000 miles Only makes the noise when turning left The sharper the turn, the more noise it makes, especially when turning into parking stalls. Noise seems to come from right front Do not feel anything in steering wheel or brakes Only does it while moving forward, not stationary and turning wheel Does not seem to do it in reverse when wheel is cranked over to the left Brakes seem good, are releasing and vehicle does not pull Ready for the sound? Please click this link to my dropbox. It is a 16 second audio file recorded while making 2 left sharp turns in a parking lot. https://www.dropbox.com/s/fkse4lobnivzxyq/2%20left%20turns%20and%20noise.m4a?dl=0 Seriously, any thoughts? I did post this in the suspension section too of course. Got the car from CarMax and have their warranty, but have not been impressed in the past with their work. I appreciate your time and thoughts.
My driver side front bearing went bad, had it replaced, then it went bad again, the mechanic said maybe the part was defective, now just a few months later its bad again. What could be causing this, please help, I don't want to have to keep getting the same thing fixed. The car also has a creeking noise when its cold and I hit the breaks hard, or the suspension flexes from like going down the driveway skirt. 2007 ford edge, SE. 118K miles. Please help!
