It's a bracket that somehow dampens the vibration but even with the TSB in my hand, I can't figure out what it attaches to! If you'd like a copy, send me your fax number. It was a 100% fix for the problem. Good luck.

I'm new to the forum and don't know how to list the TSB in the CX-9 thread other than in this reply. If there is another place to list it, please do so. The TSB is #01-039/08 2008, " CX-9 Accelerator Pedal Vibration".

I copied the info you posted over that thread.
As long as people who look for CX9 TSB can find it over there, that thread serves its purpose.

I just got this bracket thing installed that was mentioned in the TSB. Difference is night and day. Thanks again for posting the TSB. That was the info I needed to get the issue addressed

My 2008 GT was doing the same thing. Vibrations at low speeds and just wasn't responsive on the ice/snow with AWD. No dealer here so made an appt about 100 miles from here, upon arrival, they kept it and said I couldn't drive it anymore. Drive shaft needed replaced. Folks-don't ignore the vibrations, CX owners fell in love with the "fun" of the car and if its gone-there is something wrong. Mine will be in the shop for a couple days until they fed ex the part. Only 13,000 miles on it.

Those are the extra problem one could get with AWD. You got more components to fail. Drive shaft, rear coupling unit, differential, etc. Your drive shaft was probably bent from factory and it got worse as time goes by. Often than not, the brackets cracked, etc. I hope they got you a loaner for the effort.

They put us in a Ford Focus which is better than nothing-I guess Extremely excited to get my car back today and hoping that I have no more failures. I've never loved a vehicle so much but need reliability and AWD living in North Dakota.

If you really need AWD so much, I would highly recommend you to ditch the OE tires as early as possible. Yokohama Parada Spec-X is a very good choice as replacement.

Thanks. I noticed these tires don't have bite on the ice/snow.
