Anti-lock Brake System
Superior Braking with ABS and EBD
The New Ford Everest is designed for provide responsive and reassuring
braking performance with its four-wheel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with
G-sensor equipped Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) for stable braking
even when heavily loaded.

Anti-lock Braking System
Prevents wheel lockup during hard braking, even on slippery surfaces,
assisting the driver in maintaining directional control in the New Ford Everest.

Electronic Brakeforce Distribution
Optimizes the distribution of braking force to the front and rear wheels in
accordance with the vehicles speed and load. The system is calibrated for
excellent adaptability to a wide range of laden and un-laden conditions,
reflecting the premium versatility of the New Ford Everest.
ABS [4W-ABS]
The ABS HU/CM, integrating both the hydraulic unit (HU) and control
module (CM), has been adopted, resulting in size and weight reduction.
Select-low controlled-4-wheel anti-lock brake system with 4-sensor and
3-channel has been adopted, and has the following features.
The integrated ABS Hydraulic Unit/Control Module (HU/CM) system is
compact, lightweight and highly reliable.

Operation
As the ABS sensor rotor rotates,
magnetic flux formed from the
permanent magnet varies and an
alternating current is formed with
an electromagnetic conductor.
Using this alternating current,
rotation speed is expressed as a
varying proportional cycle and from
detection of this cycle the CM part
of the ABS HU/CM can then detect
the wheel rotation speed. While the
structures of the front and rear ABS
wheel-speed sensor differ, the
operation is the same.
Construction
The front ABS wheel-speed sensor
is installed on the steering knuckle
and the front ABS sensor rotor is
integrated with the front wheel hub
(4x2) or drive shaft (4x4).
The rear ABS wheel-speed sensor
is installed on the hub spindle and
the rear ABS sensor rotor is
integrated with the rear axle shaft.
ABS Wheel-Speed Sensor and Rotor Construction & Operation
G Sensor Function

Because the 4x2 vehicle is based on the 4x4 vehicle, the 4x4 ABS
system has been adopted, Therefore, the G-sensor, which is generally
installed to 4x4 vehicles only, is installed to the 4x2 vehicle.
Because the 4x4 vehicle ABS system has been adopted on the 4x2
vehicle, the ABS is controlled in the same way as the 4x4 vehicle.

In the 4x2 vehicle and the 4x4 vehicle, the G-sensor detects and calculates
the vehicle G force (acceleration and deceleration G force), and outputs the
change in voltage to the ABS HU/CM.

Suspension

Front suspension
The double wishbone suspension, which has A-shape lower arms, is
used for the front suspension. A-shape lower arms have high rigidly
and durability.
The torsion bar springs are used for both 4x2 and 4x4 models.


The torsion bar spring is pre-coiled in one direction. It therefore gives
ample spring performance when installed correctly, but only half if
installed in reverse.
An R (right) or L (left) is marked on the rear end of the bar to
distinguish one from the other.
The left and right, and 4x2 and 4x4 torsion bar springs are not
interchangeable.

The rigid axle suspension with leaf spring is used for the rear
suspension.
To prevent wind-up of the leaf springs during rapid acceleration or
deceleration, the shock absorber on the right side is mounted at the
rear of the axle and the left one is mounted at the front of the axle,
(bias mount).In order to increase the rigidity in the lateral direction,
wide shackle plates are used in the frame mounting.
The rear springs are mounted on top of the axle housing to raise the
centre of gravity. Thus, the shock absorbers attach directly to brackets
welded to the axle housing.

Body Structure
Pure SUV styling
The styling of the Everest is pure SUV. Various frontal presentations were
considered, but it was the bold front end of the Ranger that consumers liked.
The platform chassis, suspension, brakes, etc is shared with the Ranger
and so are some body panels like the front doors and the bonnet. However,
all other sheet metal and glass is unique to the Everest.
As it uses the Ranger platform, this means the Everest design has body-on-
chassis (BOC) construction, the traditional way of building pick-ups and
SUVs. Typically, the body shell is bolted onto a chassis of two longitudinal
beams and the merits of this are in load-carrying capability.
Everests protective body structure features door intrusion beams and
reinforced A, B and C-pillars to manage crash forces away from the driver and
passengers and maintain the shape and integrity of the passenger safety cell.

5. Wind each end of the piano wire
around a bar.

Use a long sawing action to
spread the work over the whole
length of the piano wire to
prevent it from breaking.

6. Working with another person, saw
through the sealant around the edge
of the glass.
7. Remove the side window glass.
Side Window glass Installation

Proper installation of the side window glass may be difficult if the
sealant is cracked or the glass is pushed out by air pressure
when a door is opened/closed with all the windows closed. Leave
all the windows open until the side window glass is installed
completely.

1. Cut away the old sealant using a razor so that 1-2mm thickness of
sealant remains around the circumference if the frame.

Using a razor with bare hands can cause injury. Always wear
gloves when using a razor.

2. If the sealant has come off completely in any one place, apply some
primer after degreasing, and allow it approximately 30 minutes to dry.
Then put new sealant to create a 2mm layer.
3. Clean and degrease an approximately 50mm wide strip around the
circumference of the glass and the bonding area on the body.
4. Insert the spacers into the body.

7. Set the side window in place and
insert the pins into the body. Install the
side window glass.
8. Allow the sealant to harden
completely.

Sealant hardening time: 24 Hours
6. Apply sealant to the areas of the glass
surface as shown in the figure.
5. Use only glass primer on the glass,
and body primer on the body and
molding. Allow it to dry for
approximately 30 minutes.

Anodizing Specifications
Body
Aluminium Anodizing
Anodizing Aluminium and How It Works
Exposed to the earth's atmosphere, aluminium combines with oxygen to form
a protective surface film which inhibits further oxidation of the aluminium.
Unlike steel or iron alloys, aluminium will not continue to oxidize (rust) once
this protective layer is formed. This natural oxide is extremely thin and loosely
adhered to the aluminium surface, however, and is easily removed by
handling. Anodizing is a process which thickens the natural oxide film
resulting in a heavy aluminium oxide film of controlled thickness having the
hardness similar to that of a ruby or sapphire.
When aluminium is anodized conventionally, direct electrical current (DC) is
passed through a bath of sulphuric acid -- the electrolyte -- while the
aluminium being treated serves as the anode. This produces a clear film of
aluminium oxide on the aluminiums surface. Electron microscopy indicates
that this layer is mostly porous with a very thin barrier layer at the base. This
structure lends itself very well to electrolytic colouring or absorptive dying.
During the anodizing process, several controls are critical to assure the
specified film thickness, its abrasion resistance and density. These controls
include a precise combination of chemical concentration, temperature and
current density.

Anodizing: Working With Aluminium
The quality of finished aluminium extrusions and anodized products is a
function of the knowledge, experience and capability of the people and
equipment used. To achieve this first-rate extrusions and anodized finishes,
meticulous attention must be paid to every detail -- from using the finest
aluminium and press practices to maintaining the tightest chemical and
electrical controls.

41
The Aluminium Anodizing Process
Pre-Treatment: Cleaning is done in a non-etching, alkaline detergent heated
to approximately 145 degrees Fahrenheit. This process removes accumulated
contaminants and light oils.
Rinsing: Multiple rinses, some using strictly de-ionized water, follow each
process step.
Etching (Chemical Milling): Etching in caustic soda (sodium hydroxide)
prepares the aluminium for anodizing by chemically removing a thin layer of
aluminium. This alkaline bath gives the aluminium surface a matte
appearance.
Desmutting: Rinsing in an acidic solution removes unwanted surface alloy
constituent particles not removed by the etching process.
Anodizing: Aluminium is immersed in a tank containing an electrolyte having
a 15% sulphuric acid concentration. Electric current is passed through the
electrolyte and the aluminium is made the anode in this electrolytic cell; the
tank is the cathode. Voltage applied across the anode and cathode causes
negatively charged anions to migrate to the anode where the oxygen in the
anions combines with the aluminium to form aluminium oxide (Al
2
O
3
).
Colouring: Anodic films are well suited to a variety of colouring methods
including absorptive dyeing, both organic and inorganic dyestuffs, and
electrolytic colouring.
Sealing: In all the anodizing process, the proper sealing of the porous oxide
coating is absolutely essential to the satisfactory performance of the coating.
The pores must be rendered non-absorbent to provide maximum resistance to
corrosion and stains. This is accomplished through a hydrothermal treatment
in proprietary chemical baths or by capping the pores via the precipitation of
metal salts in the pore openings.

Airbag System
Airbag module inspection
Inspecting an airbag module using a tester can operate (deploy) the
airbag module, which may cause serious injury. Do not use a tester to
inspect an airbag module. Always use the onboard diagnostic function
to diagnose the airbag module for malfunctions.
Airbag module handling
Before removing the airbag module or disconnecting the airbag module
connector, always turn the ignition switch to the lock position,
disconnect the negative battery cable, and then wait for 1 minute or
more to allow the backup power supply of the SAS control module to
deplete its stored power.

Handling a live (undeployed) airbag module that is pointed toward your
body could result in serious injury if the airbag module were to
accidentally operate (deploy). When carrying a live (undeployed)
airbag module, point the deployment surface away from your body to
lessen the chance of injury in case it operates (deploys).

SAS control module handling
Remove the SAS control module or disconnecting the SAS control
module connector with the ignition switch at the ON position can
activate the sensor in the SAS control module and operate (deploy) the
airbags and pre-tensioner seat belts, which may cause serious injury.
Before removing the SAS control module or disconnecting the SAS
control module connector, always turn the ignition switch to the LOCK
position, disconnect the negative battery cable, and wait for 1 minute or
more to allow the backup power supply of the SAS control module to
deplete its stored power.

Connecting the SAS control module connector with the SAS control
module not securely fixed to the vehicle is dangerous. The sensor in
the SAS control module could send an electrical signal to the airbag
modules and pre-tensioner seat belts. This will operate (deploy) the
airbags and pre-tensioner seat belts, which may result in serious injury.
Therefore, before connecting the connector, securely fix the SAS
control module to the vehicle.

Because a sensor is built into the SAS control module, once the airbag
and pre-tensioner seat belts have operated (deployed) due to a
collision or other causes, the SAS control module must be replaced
with a new one even if the used one does not have any visible external
damage or deformation. The used SAS control module may have been
damaged internally, which may cause improper operation. If the SAS
control module is reused, the airbags and pre-tensioner seat belts may
not operate (deploy) normally, which could result in a serious accident.
Always replace the SAS control module with a new one. The SAS
control module cannot be bench-checked or self-checked.
A live (undeployed) airbag module placed with its deployment surface
to ground is dangerous. If the airbag module were to accidentally
operate (deploy), it could cause serious injury. Always place a live
(undeployed) airbag module with its deployment surface up.

Side airbag module handling
When a side airbag module operates (deploys) due to a collision, the
interior of the seat back (pad, frame, trim) may become damaged. If a
side airbag does not operate (deploy) normally from a seat back that
has been reused, a serious accident may result. After a side airbag
has operated (deployed), always replace both the side airbag module
and the seat back (pad, frame, trim) with new parts. After servicing,
verify that the seat operates normally and that the wiring harness is not
caught.
Crash zone sensor handling
Removing the crash zone sensor or disconnecting the crash zone
sensor connector with the ignition switch at the ON position can
activate the crash zone sensor and operate (deploy) the airbags and
pre-tensioner seat belts, which may cause serious injury. Before
removing the crash zone sensor or disconnecting the crash zone
sensor connector, always turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position,
disconnect the negative battery cable, and then wait 1 minute or more
to allow the backup power supply of the SAS control module to deplete
its stored power.

If the crash zone sensor is subjected to shock or the sensor is
disassembled, the airbags and pre-tensioner seat belts may
accidentally operate (deploy) and cause injury, or the system may fail
to operate normally and cause a serious accident. Do not subject the
crash zone sensor to shock or disassemble the sensor.

Because a sensor is built into the crash zone sensor, once the airbags
and pre-tensioner seat belts have operated (deployed) due to a
