FORD: 2006 Fusion
LINCOLN: 2006 Zephyr
MERCURY: 2006 Milan


ISSUE:
Some 2006 Fusion / Milan / Zephyr vehicles may exhibit a vibration or buzzing noise coming from the engine compartment or instrument panel (IP) area. The noise may be heard during light tip-ins at 25-50 MPH (40-80 Km/h). The most common occurrence is at approximately 40 MPH (64 Km/h) at 1500 RPM with the V-6 engine. Some vehicles must be completely warmed up by driving them for 15 minutes before the noise can be heard.

ACTION:
There are two different root causes that could generate that type of a noise. Use the following Service Procedure to isolate and repair the root cause.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

Check the lines (brake / fuel / vapor) below the cowl on the right side of master cylinder for grounding to the bulkhead.
Ensure the two black plastic clips are properly installed in the bulkhead and that the lines properly installed in clips. The lines are covered with a metal shield which can make them difficult to see without removing parts.
Use soft foam material number 164-R4902 from Rotunda Squeak and Rattle Kit (164-R4900) to isolate lines from bulkhead if needed.
On V-6 only, inspect the exhaust flex pipe for possible source of noise and replace if necessary.
NOTE: FOR STEP 4, USE HOSE CLAMPS AS A TOOL TO HELP PIN POINT THE ROOT CAUSE OF THE NOISE.



If concern is still present, follow Workshop Manual, Section 100-04 Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) and repair as necessary.

Thank you for the response I hope you can help me with my problem.

I would still take it to the dealer, explain the problem and that there is a TSB about it for the v6, and say you are having the same problem. And ask they take a look at it and fix the issue.
