So the noise sort of came back. Greased up the ebrake components and nothing. Still a bit of the noise when stopping. Took it offroad a bit and.... Knock on wood... Silent so far.

Maybe it just wanted to do truck things. Still waiting for it to come back and need an ebrake adjustment.

So thinking it was the bushing they fixed and the ebrake springs etc needing some love. Plus some dust....

Solved my noise! The parking brake cable was slightly loose. Tighten the cable from the tension nut at the handle so there isn’t any easy play in the handle and no more squeak. It’s always the simple stuff.
Finally got around to tightening mine and it fixed the rest of the noise (it going on its own was temporary). So mine was a bushing under the bed and the ebrake combining to make flock of bird noises.

My 2019 Ranger has the exact same noise, have you had any luck ?
My '22 Ranger Tremor had exact noise too. It's the parking brake cable bracket. Gets dry or dirty and just needs a shot of wd40 or pb blast lube. No adjusting. On mine it's right where the front cable links to two rear cables via link mounted on steel bracket. It's not spare tire, leaf's or body mount. Easy.

Excellent info. Mine has two noises. One was confirmed by the dealer to be one of the mounts/bushings for the bed. The other is brake cable related that keeps coming and going. I'll go spray that down right now.

Went from the sound of a flock of birds (when the bed was part of the problem) to chirping while hitting the brakes near a complete stop.

Good luck. The threads and video helped big time.
I just soaked mine in silicone spray. The brake adjustment made it quieter but it did return. Hope this is the final solution. When I have some more time I'll go coat that little shit in proper grease.

Last annoyance is hopefully gone. I can deal with greasing that from time to time to shut it up. My hearing is screwed from the Army so it isn't like I'm ultra sensitive to noise.......

Try coating it with parking brake on and then off. Lube will hit more cable when loose and then tightened. This noise was sooo irritating and loud. Ford dealer couldn't fix it.
Done; with the help of a kiddo/child labor.

Which brake cable? Does the noise on the front right side when you hit the brake?
