Re: 2005 Escape Shock Mount Rusted Out
I've contacted my dealership and salesman, and they have no secret recalls. I'm waiting for him to give the factory rep's phone number. However I did go to the Ford website and left them an email stating that this is a safety issue and it needs to be address. Also, our Q.C. manager at drives a 2005 Escape, we looked at his right rear fender well, and it's doing the same thing. I contacted a couple of bodyshops in the area. They could quote me the two parts needed and the 15 hours it takes to repair the shock mount, because they have done a few. They also said that this problem is common on 2004, 2005, & 2006 models. The 15 hours is that the repair is from the outside and the inside, removing the interior trim and laying welding blankets down, so they don't burn the vehicle up. I sure hope Ford can fix it for me, or at least help pay for most of the repair.
