Thank you, I did that before I went to the dealer. -
Answer 2
There is a service bulletin from Ford regarding brake noise when first driving from the front brakes. The repair is to lubricate the backs of the brake pads in certain areas. It is a known concern. It's more annoying than it is a safety issue. It is only under warranty for the first 12 months or 18,000 miles of the vehicle being in service - whichever comes first. Otherwise, you would have to pay to have the pads removed and lubricated appropriately. Hope this helps. -
