I have recently joined the forum. I have searched in many different ways before posting this to try and find this issue but was not successful.
I have a 2010 Edge I bought new. I have done all of the maintenance as suggested by the Ford Service Guide.
However now after driving the vehicle for 15 to 20 minutes at speeds of 110+kmh (60+mph) and then travelling for an additional 10 to 15 minutes at 80+kmh (50+mph) I notice a whining/squealing noise that increases in intensity until it drowns out the stereo and becomes unbearable. The noise will go away instantly if the brakes are applied, if you turn the steering wheel slightly, or if you pull over and allow the vehicle to rest for 5 to 10 minutes. The outside temperature also seems to have an influence on this since I have only experienced this issue during my evening drives home from work when the temperature is 14+Celcius degrees or approximately 60+ degrees Fahrenheit. It seems to be coming from the rear of the vehicle but it's really hard to know for sure from inside the cabin.
I would love to find a TSB to take to my dealer since they refuse to drive the vehicle long enough to reproduce the issue.
The vehicle mileage is currently has 65,000+ kms/40,000+Miles.
Any and all help with this is truly greatly appreciated.
I have taken it to another dealer, but no joy there either. The dealers won't drive it long enough to reproduce the issue. The video is a good idea that we have had as well. I will definately do it as soon as the issue occurs again. Thanks for your reply.
