Re: 2002 rear end whine
I have a 2002 with 58,000 miles on it and I just had this problem fixed. The
whine had gotten pretty darn loud. There is a technical service bulletin on
this, TSB#05-12-6. The TSB specifies a repair kit for the problem. It ended
up being a $1,400 repair. However, I did enough complaining to my service
manager that he got Ford to cover all but $275.00 of the repair.
From my understanding, the whine is coming from a bearing that has worn out.
I would imagine that if you let this go long enough, the bearing may cease
up and destroy more than just the diff.
