Mercury Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Ford has a technical service bulletin out that will most likely cure this concern.
Here is a copy of the TSB 09-19-4
This article supersedes TSB 07-26-8 to update the model years, vehicle lines and add a production fix date.
Some 2008-2009 Taurus, Taurus X, Sable and 2009 MKS vehicles built on or before 6/23/2009 may exhibit a clicking, popping, rubbing, grunting, squeaking, or creaking noise coming from the wheel well area. The noise may be heard at the top of the strut rod. Typically, the noise is heard in the front outboard wheel while turning. This noise may be caused by the jounce bumper rubbing against the strut rod, or the dust boot rubbing against the strut mount cup.
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.
