This article supersedes TSB 06-25-2 to update the model years and Service Procedure.

Some 2006-2007 Focus vehicles may exhibit a squeaking noise from the rear of the vehicle over bumps. This noise may be caused by contact between the rear parking brake cable sleeve and the wire form bracket located under the vehicle near the rear suspension tie bar being transferred into the vehicle body.

Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.


Remove the parking brake cable bolt. (Figure 1)

Figure 1 - Article 08-4-15

Insert the plastic insert into the square hole used for locating the parking brake cable guide. (Figure 1)
Remove any existing grease from the cable guide and cable (in this area only) by wiping clean with a suitable service towel.
Install the cable guide onto vehicle by inserting the locating tab of the guide into the center of the plastic insert and reinstalling the parking brake cable bolt. Torque to 17 lb-ft (23 N-m).
This thread is for 2012 Focus TSBs and recalls!
