Mercury Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.
Is the vehicle AWD without a 4x4 switch?
Possible causes are a faulty wheel hub bearing, locked up rear limited slip clutches, or a locked up transfer case viscous coupling.
Your description does not sound like the tires in the front are actually rubbing the wheel well area.
This is my 1st answer of what can be many. You the website and myself expect you to have a ~~~5 STAR EXCELLENT~~~ experience with my help. At the top of your screen is the rating box that you only get to use once. Please make sure to complete the mandatory rating when ready or reply and say "I am pleased with my answer". Not rating or rating 1-2 stars does not benefit you nor me in any way.
Hello again Chris here,
