Iím the Ford rep on this board now, Kevin_agar; Natasha has moved to Facebook. Iím unable to discuss or publicly release information surrounding TSBs. I highly recommend getting in contact with one of the awesome Ford Canada agents at 1-800-565-3673 for help.

Hey jimmyt,

I reviewed the case notes, and engineering is actively working to resolve the bearing noise. Please keep in contact with your dealership, and let them know if the symptom changes. I truly appreciate the patience you have shown.

Kevin_agar I have the same drone-like humming noise in my 2012 FF titanium hatchback and am sick and tired of visiting dealerships here in Canada numerous times for rattles, clunks, shudders and whines. Did Ford actually come out with a TSB for the 55MPH oscillating whine and did anyone finally get rid of the noise.... for good? Was it the bearings and was there a "new" bearing issued compared to the old originals. Any further information would be appreciated as in Canada we do not have lemon laws and we are at the mercy of the dealerships being told everything they must do or they do the wrong thing 10 times before it is fixed.... thanks in advance.

wkumtrider I plan to get it in to a dealer as soon as I can.

ruthrj Just to let you know, I don't think anybody has experienced a vibration through the steering wheel or the gas pedal for the wheel bearing issue. My vibration was felt through my feet placed flat on the floorboards. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure bad wheel bearings could cause a vibration through the steering wheel but most definitely take it to the dealer and have them look at it. Paperwork, paperwork, paperwork my friend. If you don't note the problem with a service dealer you never had a problem!

In other news, just drove home with a brand new Mazda CX-5! Very roomy, great gas mileage, and glad it's not a Ford after that debacle. Zoom-zoom!

wkumtrider No, I have not been to the dealer yet. I just don't want to go through the fiasco the other members on here have gone through at the dealer. I will have them take a look at it.

Hi wkumtrider,

Have you swung by your dealership so they can take a look? Ford certified techs are going to be in the best position to diagnose. Additionally, I'm happy to get your case escalated to your regional Customer Service Manager; just sent me a PM with your VIN, dealer, mileage, and daytime contact number.

Thanks!

Mine was the rear.
