2009 Ford Flex Limited: ABS Pulsing

August 30, 2010

While driving the Flex this weekend, I noticed that even under moderate braking, like at a stop sign, that unmistakable, ABS-fluttery feeling through the brake pedal and the subtle 'Bv-v-v-v-vp' sound that it also makes--not a full-blown brake-assist ABS freak out mind you, but just a little buzz as if the front tires were on wet leaves.

It's not That Grinding Feeling Mike Schmidt noticed that Dan resolved with the rear pad replacement. Nor the original cold judder problem that Dan fixed with the front pad/rotor replacement either. No, this is something new.

We'll put Dan on the case again to see what's up and post our findings later.
