Ford Edge ProblemsTransmission (Red) or Power Transfer Unit (PTU) (Brown) Fluid Leaks at Axle Area
A leaking axle shaft seal and / or PTU cover seal can cause transmission (red) or Power Transfer Unit (PTU) (brown) fluid leaks at the axle area. The axle shaft seal and / or PTU cover seal may be leaking and should be replaced as required.
Bulletin 13N02 - This program extends the coverage of the brake booster to ten years of service or 150,000 miles from the warranty start of the vehicle, whichever occurs first. This is a one time repair program.
In some of the affected vehicles, it is possible for the brake booster to develop a small tear in the diaphragm under certain driving and environmental conditions. If this occurs, the driver may hear a hissing noise while depressing the pedal and may also experience a "spongy" pedal feel without a noticeable effect on braking performance. If the vehicle is not serviced, the tear will eventually expand and the pedal effort required to stop the vehicle will gradually increase. However, in all cases, the fundamental vehicle braking system remains functional.
Bad adhesive can cause the foam seal between the dash and windshield to slide out. To correct, the windshield must be removed, and then remove and replace the foam with new parts.

Ford Edge RecallsPassenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures On Deployment
The passenger frontal air bag inflator may rupture on deployment, causing metal fragments to come through the air bag and injure occupants. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator free of charge to resolve the concern.
The fuel tank may corrode and develop a fuel leak at a seam weld under the tank mounting reinforcement brackets, due to exposure to corrosive road salt. Dealers will inspect the vehicles and either clean and treat the fuel tank with a corrosion preventative or replace the tank if necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
For vehicles located in cold weather states where road salt and other contaminants may be present on the road, the mounting bolts for the power steering gear motor may corrode and break. As a result the steering gear motor could detach from the steering gear. This would result in a loss of power steering assistance, and make turning the steering wheel more difficult than usual. Dealers will inspect the steering gear motor and replace the steering gear assembly on vehicles where broken or missing attachment bolts are found. If the bolts are intact, dealers will apply sealer to prevent corrosion, and will replace affected bolts as necessary. All repairs will be performed free of charge to resolve the concern.
