ISSUE:

Some 1999 F-53 Motorhome Chassis vehicles equipped with a 6.8L engine may exhibit a “squealing” noise from the engine compartment. This may be caused by a driver’s side idler pulley making insufficient contact with the FEAD belt.

ACTION:

Replace the driver’s side idler pulley with a larger Idler Pulley (F81Z-8678-DA) and a revised Front End Accessory Drive (FEAD) Belt (XC3Z-8620-AB). Refer to the appropriate Workshop Manual for replacement procedures.
