     * Not so much a design problem, but the result of a common mistake made by inexperienced mechanics (even Ford Dealership techs). Removing the rear brake rotors for replacement or resurfacing requires pulling out the axle, but the five bolts holding the axle in are **single-use**. Like head bolts, they stretch upon install and have to be replaced every time. Trying to re-use the bolts will result in the failures described above.     * Not so much a design problem, but the result of a common mistake made by inexperienced mechanics (even Ford Dealership techs).

 +  * Boom/Hum/Moan Noise Or Vibration From Rear While Driving At Highway Speeds
 +    * Some 2015–2020 Transit vehicles equipped with rear wheel drive (RWD) and a U-joint at the transmission flange and rear driveshaft may experience a boom/hum/moan noise or vibration from the rear while driving. This noise or vibration is most prevalent at highway speeds (112-121 km/h [70–75 mph] for 4.10 axle ratio, 121-128 km/h [75-80 mph] for 3.73 axle ratio, and 136-145 km/h [85-90 mph] for 3.31 axle ratio) and may also be present to a lesser degree at roughly half of those speeds.
 +    * Addressed under Technical Service Bulletin 20-2214, installation of part number LK4Z-4A263-C (Torsional Damper Kit)
   * Transmission filter cannot be accessed for normal service;  requires removal of front subframe which may be difficult due to seized bolts.  Normal service is done by a //fluid exchange machine// at the Ford dealer.   * Transmission filter cannot be accessed for normal service;  requires removal of front subframe which may be difficult due to seized bolts.  Normal service is done by a //fluid exchange machine// at the Ford dealer.
