Rear End Clunk
I am experiencing a loud rear end clunk on my 2017 Escape 2.0 AWD. It usually happens after I back up from my garage, shift into drive and begin to move. Trying to replicate in dealers lot and have only done it twice and dealer is stumped. It would appear one has to drive a ways before trying to duplicate. Ideas??
Heading to the dealer in the morning, with the same issue with my 2016. I'll post my findings as soon as they let me know. Wish me luck
Best of luck. I now have two dealers stumped but it is happening less often. Let me know if they are able to find anything.
I have the same problem. The dealer said that it was normal. They were able to duplicate it,they said that when the rear differential transits from reverse to forward or forward to reverse it has to change the gears and there is a rubber coupling to prevent damage. I can't see how that a clunk that loud without being a problem at some time in the future.
Interesting. I have to think something is going to break somewhere down the road as some of these clunks get really loud. Hate to say it but I guess all I can do is wait for something to break.
I am having the same issue with my 2017 Ford Escape, 2.0L, 4WD. Has anyone figured out the issue and solution?
Best I've got so far is "It's under warranty. If it breaks, we'll tow you in". I have 6,000 miles on so far and it may be getting a little worse. Really would like to know what is going on. Can't get any help from Ford.
Having same issues with my 2017 AWD Escape, dealer could not duplicate
Same issue with my 2017 AWD Escape, took it back to the dealer for the 2nd time. First time they replaced the rear shocks, said that was the problem. Didn't solve the problem. Took it back today, the mechanic got it to make the clunking noise. Took a look and said it's the rear differential. They ordered a new one and will replace. Under warranty.
Would REALLY like to know if that solves the problem.
I'll let you know. They said it will take a couple of weeks to get the parts in.
Just got an email from a Ford service manager from one of the dealers I took my Escape to. There is a special service message from Ford hotline on that repair now (ssm number 46703). Seems it's an electronic component called an active torque coupling. They have now replaced several and it seems to fix the problem.
