Thanks. I'll have it looked at. Any points I should make to a mechanic?


I'm thinking it shouldn't be a wheel bearing as I only have 31k miles on the Escape...and the noise occurs when I'm stopping...and not at other times, but somethin's going on there. Thanks.


Thanks Pap. I took it in. I had warn pads and roter replaced with manufacturer specific parts, not the generic type last installed. Sounds clean now!!
