Escape 4x4 binding

When I first start up my 02 escape there is no binding in sharp turns, but after driving on the interstate with cruise then slow down and turn into a parking lot etc. there is binding when making turns. Is this related to TSB 15430?
What does it take to fix the problem?

Re: Escape 4x4 binding

Does the TSB indicate that the fix is to do something drastic (& expensive) like tear down the transmission, or something more simple like reprogram a computer chip somewhere?

Re: Escape 4x4 binding

I went to the local Ford dealer and asked for information on TSB 15430 and it didn't come up on their system. It it is a Ford TSB why did a dealer not have it on their computer search system?
