2005 Ford Mustang ProblemsNoise From Synchronizer Shaft Upper Bushing
The synchronizer shaft for the camshaft position sensor can cause a loud squeak or chirping noise due to failure of the upper bushing. The noise may be erratic and is usually present when the engine is warm.
The adhesive holding the glass convertible window gives out and the window delaminates from the outer convertible shell. I used 3M VHB 2-sided adhesive tape (the same type that is used to hold glass panels to the outside of skyscrapers) to hold the window back in. It worked great, but long term effectiveness is still unknown.
If a squeaking noise is heard while turning the steering wheel, the outer tie rod ends may be worn and should be replaced.
