If there is some one in your area that balances driveshafts they can change just the bearing for you

Some Ford Escape and Mazda Tribute vehicles use the same carrier bearing on the 2pc rear driveshaft. part numbers = 5009385 , 5009385-1, 2680-80

2005 ford escape xlt v6 awd. had a diagnostic test done at the dealership. said 2 of the 3 converters are clogged. they said I need a complete new exhaust system at a cost around 4000 bucks. any thoughtful...


get a second opinion you dont need the whole exhaust system---even if it the 2 manifolds have to be changed - thats a lot of money - there is a cat incorporated with each exhaust manifold so that would mean replacing the manifolds if both cats were bad thats both manifolds if your willing to do the work yourself you can change them the manifold/ cats sell on ebay new for under 200

DO YOU HAVE DO REPACK WHEEL BEARING ON A 2005 ESCAPE AFTER 120,000 MILES


If you're talking about the front wheel bearings, they can't be serviced. They can only be replaced. They are sealed for life (even if the life seems to be a little short).
Here's the front bearing:

I never replaced the rear bearings on my 2002 Escape 4X4, but here's a picture of the rear hub.

Did you change the carrier bearing. It will be cheap compared to a transmission and new drive shaft. Got 1 in my shop right now. Customer did not listen. Check that carrier bearing Cost $1350vs $50

On vehicles covered by this information that are equipped with a two-piece rear driveshaft assembly, the center support bearing may be removed for replacement. To be sure if your driveshaft may be serviced, check with your local parts supplier or dealer for parts availability information.
  1. Matchmark and remove the rear driveshaft assembly. For details, please refer to the procedure located earlier in this section.
  2. Remove the strap retaining the rubber cushion from the bearing support.
  3. Pull the support bracket from the rubber cushion and the cushion from the bearing.
  4. Press the bearing assembly from the halfshaft.

To install:
  1. Assemble the center support bearing to the driveshaft:
    1. If removed, install the inner deflector onto the front shaft half and ***** punch the deflector at 2 opposite points to make sure it is tight on the shaft.
    2. Fill the space between the inner dust shield and bearing with lithium soap grease.
    3. Start the bearing and slinger assembly straight onto the shaft journal. Support the shaft and using a length of pipe over the splined end of the shaft, press the bearing and inner slinger against the shoulder of the front shaft half.
    4. Install the bearing retainer, the rubber cushion onto bearing, the bracket onto the cushion and the retaining strap.

  2. Align and install the driveshaft assembly to the vehicle.

2005 ford escape awd shutters very badly upon take off up to about 30 miles per hour then gets progressively better. Is the center drive shaft bearing bad and is it repairable . Ford says the driveshaft...


Have a 2005 ford escape XLT 4WD and when I get between 45-60km per hour the vehicle shakes like I'm driving on a washboard. Took it to Ford - they told me I need a new drive shaft - $1200 with taxes and labour. I already replaced the alternator in 2007 - that was over $800 because of where it is positioned. Takes hours and hours to get at it because it is buried under the motor. I think Ford needs to give us all a discount. Sounds like these are common problems with the Ford Escape.

Ford super duty vibration/shake


The carrier bearing should not move at all. It is mounted in rubber to give a little. But, it should not move freely. If this is the case then something has gone bad. The carrier bearing would cause this vibration as it spins if it is loose.
