    My 2006 Crown Victoria

    I have had a 2006 CVPI since about 2015. Since then the transmission had been rebuilt and had new tires and brakes among the normal maintenance.

    Last two days its started with a rubbing/vibration that I can't figure out the cause of.

    Only happens above 40mph and only in left turns. Pulled the tire off and snooped around. I see nothing out of place and no obvious wear from rubbing.

    The splashguard thing seems flimsy but I dont know if that would be the issue.

    Anyone have a suggestion?

    Turns out it was the wheel bearing. It managed to disintegrate the ABS sensor as well.


    Next mission is the Airbag light. Seems to be a sensor issue with the passenger seat belt pretensioner. So I probably need to visit the take a part or shell out a bunch of cash to Ford.

    Why do you want to fix it? State inspection, or just the general concern that it won't deploy with the light on?

    Honestly the passenger seat barely ever gets used. I just want to be rid of the annoying light plus the delightful noise that accompanies it every time you start the car.

    The various warning lights are the brightest things on the dash, I even avoid using high beams due to how bright the dash light is for them.

    Have you tried applying a little Scotch tape over the light to dull it a bit?
