HiCustomer Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.

 

Ford has a technical service bulletin for uncommanded hub engagement causing a grinding,ratcheting or buzzing type noise. If the vehicle has been having this problem for any length of time then the integrated wheel ends and hubs will need to be inspected for gear shear. I have attached the tsb below.

the tsb is not comming up. what should i tell the dealership. should this be covered under warranty
Ford Mechanic: Kenny Z., Ford Senior Master Tech replied 8 years ago

Did you click on the click here link? It is a pdf file. It involves replacing the iwe solenoid and clearing the vacuum lines. If you have an extended warranty such as a ford esp premium care it should be covered. It would be covered under the factory warranty for 3 years 36k miles only. Tell the dealer the tsb # XXXXX

 

 

 

FORD:2004-2006 F-150
LINCOLN:2006 Mark LT

ISSUE:

Some 2004-2006 F-150 and 2006 Mark LT 4X4 vehicles built before 4/24/2006 may exhibit a noise inXXXXXfrom the front Integrated Wheel Ends (IWE) and/or the 4X4 system being inoperative. The IWE solenoid may have ingested water and passed it to the IWE system causing water contamination in the vacuum portion of the system. A shorted IWE solenoid can set the codes C1979 and C1980. If either code is present, the 4WDH light will be inoperative.

ACTION:

Use the following Service Procedure to check and repair the 4X4 system.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

  1. Replace the IWE solenoid. Torque the new design bracket and solenoid to 62 lb-in (7 N-m). It will be necessary to remove the vacuum lines from each IWE down at the wheels to check for water being present.
    1. If no water is present at the vacuum line at the IWE, install the new solenoid with bracket. Reconnect all vacuum hoses.
    2. If water is present allow it to drain from the vacuum lines. Then follow the updated procedure outlined in 2006 Workshop Manual (WSM) on-line version, Section 308-07A, Pin Point Tests B21 and B22. These tests checks IWE leak rates with vacuum and will remove any residual water from the IWE. Reconnect all vacuum hoses.
  2. If the IWE looses vacuum quicker than specification. Refer to WSM, Section 204-01B for normal diagnostic procedures.
