Brake Vibration in Ford Mustang Mach-E

DEARBORN, Mich. – Ford Motor Company has issued a technical service bulletin (TSB) advising dealers on how to address brake vibration issues of the 2021 Mustang Mach-E electric sport utility vehicle.

According to Ford’s TSB 21-2206 issued last month, the vibration and shudder is caused by front brake pad material bonding to the brake rotors.

There is a two-step fix outlined in the TSB:

  1. The TSB first indicates the authorized-dealer’s technician should resurface the rotors within the minimum thickness specification for the part
  2. If that is not possible, the next step is to replace the brake pads (new ones will not have a “V” channel in the middle of the pads) and the brake caliper bolts

The repairs will be at no cost to the customer because the vehicle is within the warranty period.
