Lincoln MKS Problems

Various Radio Concerns

Various radio performance concerns may develop including noisy operation, no operation, or SYNC issues. Reprogramming the appropriate module with updated software will commonly correct most of these issues.

Grunting or Grinding Noise From Front Brakes

A grunting or grinding type noise may be noted from the front brakes. Our technicians tell us the problem is generally caused by the front brake caliper anchor brackets which can cause abnormal brake rotor and pad wear. The repair commonly involves replacing the brake pads and rotors and updating the caliper anchor brackets with revised parts.

Rhythmic sound from rear brakes

The rear brakes may drag, causing a rhythmic sound. This can be caused by misaligned or corroded brake caliper anchor bolts. Our technicians recommend to replace the brake pads and anchor bolts to correct this concern.

My serpentine belt broke. Why would that happen. (1 answer)

Just had a water pump replaced 2 weeks ago. All belts were off during repair. Dealership stated all belts looked good. Wouldn't it be logic for the dealership to replace the serpentine belt if there was a coolant leak?
