Man why do I have such bad luck It s cold out today Dunno why I decided to do...

Man, why do I have such bad luck... It's cold out today. Dunno why I decided to do it today but, I Go in the garage and Get the jack out. Raise the car up. Realize i don't have the right bit to get the Rim Cover off. Spend 20mins trying to find the right bit. Find it to spend 5 mins realizing I was trying to loosen a fake screw.... (yea I know). find the real screw, pop the cover off only to find out the lug nuts they put on need a key which of course they never gave me. So I called the shop, no answer. Call up the owners cell and he tells me can i get up to the shop in 30mins?? So I lowered the ride, throw the cover on and while i was tightening the screw.... i was rushing and over tighten it and snapped the plastic which holds the screw on the cover! So, I remove one of the fake screws and used that hole to put the real one in. throw all the tools back in the garage (was doing this in the front yard) and made it there with 2mins to spare. Got the key and came home. Looked up how much a cover costs. $65 bucks! That's like 1/4th of what one of the rims cost. So I grabbed some superglue and put the broken pieces back on with the fake screw and it seems to be holding. In other words. I wasted a day, broke a screw hole on my cover, didn't get what I wanted to get done but, I got my lug nut key!

Like seriously?

Sorry for the rant but, djaksjdhns!

Just doing a quick survey here

Just doing a quick survey here.

I'm currently developing several exterior and interior parts that will swap direct with OEM parts. Kick plates, bezels, trim pieces, rocker panels, mirror bezels, grilles, etc. These parts can be finished with real carbon fiber, stainless steel, chrome, and several wood grains to name a few and will (hopefully) be available at a significantly reduced price compared to OEM and similar competitive products available.

This means you can have real looking carbon fiber (and for the right $ actual carbon fiber) interior trim, bezels, handles, etc. that won't peel, crack or chip like vinyl over time and - as I said - directly replace OEM parts.

Is this something you would be interested in? Let me know.

    Got into an accident last Monday with my daughter in car 2015 Fusion SE

    Got into an accident last Monday with my daughter in car, 2015 Fusion SE. I was not at fault. Coming back from a show in Chicago and had white out blizzard on high way,on the way back. There were 3 cars involved. The fusion held up the best by far vs. a 06 Toyota Avalon (which really broke apart the worst) and the person at fault driving a 07 Pontiac Grand Prix. Thankfully we were not hurt. Just want to say I am pleased with the safety provided by the Fusion. Car goes to body shop on Tuesday. My insurance already said it will be fully covered and work guaranteed, minus my deductible. Driver at fault has same insurance Co. (Allstate) so they're working efficiently on the claim and will try to get my deductible back if possible.

      Anyone on here ever had a rebuilt salvage vehicle I bought a 2015 Fusion...

      Anyone on here ever had a rebuilt salvage vehicle? I bought a 2015 Fusion titanium with 14,000mi on it that was covered in hail damage. I did all the repairs and had the title changed from salvage to rebuilt salvage. I know that it has no factory Ford warranty due to the title status. I took it in for an oil change and tire rotation today at the dealer and they said it had recalls. Also I said the middle seatbelt on the back seat won't buckle and they said they'd look at it. Well after waiting they said the seatbelt needs a new buckle. $405. And I'd have to pay for all the recall work because of the title status. I always thought that if it was a safety issue or recall they were responsible no matter what the title status is. Just wondering if anyone has dealt with this before and what we you told? (Pic is for attention)

        I'm in need of new tires. My tires lasted me barely 10k miles, so I'm looking to get something slightly thicker with a bit more tread to at least try and get the max mileage out of them.

        That being said, what is the thickest size people here on 20s can get without any rub?

        My wheels are 20x9, so I need something a bit wider. My old tires were 245/35/20, so I'm wondering if I'd be able to get away with 245/45/20 but I'm a little unsettled because I don't want any rubbing to occur, because I plan on lowering the car a bit as well.

        I'm also looking for something that won't break the bank. I paid almost $600 in tires last time that barely lasted me 10k, and wore unevenly. They were good tires when they had tread but I can't be spending money on tires every 6 months, I'm a college student.

        So, ultimately, what's the best tire size to go with that won't cause any problems down the road?

          I'm trying to see if there is enough interest in the Mondeo cup holder assembly with the cover to warrant a group buy. I have a good friend that lives in China and has access to purchasing assemblies with and without ambient lighting.

          Right now it's looking to cost around $175 but I think the price would drop if there was quantity backing the purchase.

          Please respond if you are interested and if you would like it with or without ambient lighting.

          If you have a account let me know so I'm not double counting anyone.

            07 3. 0 V6

            (07, 3.0 V6)

            So I had my PCM rebuilt, 6 new coils, 6 new plugs, (previous issue was coil #1 went bad, messed up the PCM and it was giving coil #1 full power no matter what). Also needed a battery. The old battery was completely shot, dead after sitting for more than an hour or so and wouldn't start without a jump either way.

            Installed all the new parts today, car fires right up, running on all 6 cylinders but has a nasty idle. It dips down real low and shutters pretty bad. The throttle is really hesitant, like the first inch you press down, there's very little change. Once the RPMs get up to a normal idle or higher, throttle response is fairly normal.

            Driving is the same thing. When the RPMs are at cruising levels (was doing about 30 mph) its smooth. Let off the gas to go around a turn or stop, and it's the same thing.

            I'm thinking the culprit has to be the throttle body. A lot of people online mentioned their TB needing replacement after a bad battery as well.

            Thoughts? (I can get this one below for $90 with a gift card and discount code, can't hurt to try, right?)

              2gen 1 5 owners is your car a turd on the highway I bought mine 3 weeks ago...

              2gen 1.5 owners, is your car a turd on the highway? I bought mine 3 weeks ago and finally was able to spend a day driving it around other then to and from work and honestly it seems pretty damn slow on the highway. I was going 70 behind a semi on an upward slope and went to pass him and the car made it to 80 and just sat at 5,000 rpms. Would not go any faster until I made it to the top of the hill and the road evened out. Then I was able to slowly get to 100 then backed off and cruised at 70 again. It also shifts hard sometimes. Only thing I've done is put a k&n filter on it.

                I have a troubleshooting question I own the Ford Fusion 2016 Energi Electric...

                I have a troubleshooting question... I own the Ford Fusion 2016 Energi Electric Vehicle/Hybrid. As many of you with this car know, it comes with the Ford App where you can turn your car on and off, monitor fuel and EV efficiency, adjust key personalization and other things as well. Lately, when I am leaving a location such as a store, I open the app and click, unlock the app and press, "Start," and my car is not turning on. Then when I get into the car and turn it on with the Push to Start button, it beeps three times and the emergency flash lights flash three times simultaneously as well. There is about a 2 second pause between each beep. This function worked perfectly fine until about a week ago. I am pretty sure it isn't realated to my network connection on my phone because I have tried it with the best of service and the worst and it still fails. On the iPhone screen is repeatedly states and switches quickly between, "Updating and Starting," but it doesn't actually start. Any insights or advice on why this might be happening? Thank you in advance for any thoughts!

                    Just installed these today in my 2011 1 5gen fusion To say I am disappointed...

                    Just installed these today in my 2011 1.5gen fusion. To say I am disappointed is an understatement. I had purchased the morimoto HID kit from the retrofit source and have had nothing but problems. Hoping this would end my pain it has not. The bulbs can not come close to the brightness of the hids and to be honest you cannot tell the lights are on when it is dark. This may be due to the projectors but the hids in my fog light brighten up the road more than these have :/. I attempted to take a picture of them from the drivers seat but it's just a dark road. Not sure if anyone else has experienced this but just a warning for anyone attempting to do this to their 1.5 gen.

                      Been living at my place for almost a year and I have a garage that was agreed to be "mine" but when you're married we all know that means "hers". I'm trying to organize it so that I can fit the car in there to be able to detail it indoors instead of outside and be rushed but there's so much junk in boxes and bags it feels nearly impossible to do. I'd really like to get it ready so I can get some side work in during the summer months. Need motivation let's see some garage setups!!! I'll post mine once I can get back in there (baby duty).

                        30k service question

                        30k service question.

                        My 2013 totally stock 2.0 fwd titanium just hit 29k. My 30k is a month or so away.

                        What parts of the 30k service can be done by me to cut down on dealer time and cost?

                        I've got new tires, scheduled for rotation next time oil gets changed (50% oil life left).

                        Brand new cabin and air filters

                        What is crucial in the 30k that I get done, what can I do myself, and what is just a money maker for the dealer?

                        I know my dealer will offer some type of fuel additive with some kind of engine warranty.. what's up with that?

                        Thanks, y'all!

                          Have an issue with my 15 SE with 22K miles Now my car is still under factory...

                          Have an issue with my 15' SE with 22K miles. Now my car is still under factory warranty and I am taking it in tomorrow at 10am I'm just asking.

                          When I am driving over bumps, sections of roads that are raised creating a bump or a pothole (not even a big hole, just a piece of concrete missing in a circular shape). But when I am driving over one of these bumps and when one (any but noticed mainly the passenger) of my rear tires hits the bump the rear of the vehicle moves to the drivers side. I don't know the proper term or if there is one for what is happening but yes what do you guys think is the problem???

                          Weirdest problem as I DON'T ALWAYS feel it but when I do i feel it at higher speeds 40mph+ mainly.

                            I hope it's okay I post this here, I thought since there was a lot of Ford fans in general, you guys might appreciate this. I really, really enjoyed driving the 2.7 twin turbo, AWD! I'm selling the Vaccar Edge Sport from SEMA. It actually made use of Air Lift's kit for the new Fusion (neat fact!), with just slight rear mod's - if I sell the car without it, I'll post that here for sale too! If anyone has an interest or knows of a buyer, feel free to message me - I'd gladly offer a finder-fee for connecting a buyer ;)

                              As a professional DJ, I have to travel sometimes to different cities. In November I rented a 14 Fusion Titanium 2.0 EB from the dealership I work as a tech at. I have most of my adult life made fun of fords and only drove Ram trucks. I had 2. But now I only have 1 Ram and now have my Fusion. It was this trip from Phoenix to LA that made me sell my truck and buy a Fusion. I liked it so much that I added it into the skyline shots in the photo shoot that was one of the perks that came along with the gig. Literally I only had to fill up the tank 3 times, and it carried all my gear (two technics turntables, mixer, 6foot folding tables, 3 gig bags, my luggage, 2 15" powered speakers, speaker stands, pushcart) all with room to spare. I didn't even put the back seats down. I was speechless. When I got back, I waited and bought my current 16 SE 2.0EB. Love it!

                                My apologies in advance for asking a question that any sensible adult should be able to google... However, I'm struggling.

                                Let me preface by saying, I don't have a trusted mechanic - yet. I've been talking to locals and trying to get set up before spring, the struggle is real though.

                                I purchased my 2010 Sport from Andrew Dingemans (super cool guy by the way, car is amazing) in December. I also bought an extra set of rims from him. They are XXR 535's. 18" 5 spoke rim. They aren't on XXR's webpage now but here is a link.


                                We are talking about the 18"/8.75 rim. On the rim came a set of completely worn out rubbers (this was explained to me very clearly by Andrew) and I was basically buying the rims for the rims.

                                On my car currently is a set of Goodyear Kelly Edge a/s. They are 225/45/r18 which were brand new at purchase and needed for the safety on the stock sport rims.

                                --- stop me here if you've heard the end of this story before ---

                                I found a Groupon for seasonal changes. They listed on rim and off rim pricing, below or above 18". It was a 50% off deal and I had a Groupon coupon (yes such a thing exists look in your spam folders hah). This brought my price from reg 109.99 to sale 49.99 to couponed 24.50. There was fine print naturally, but I saw that going into the deal. 19.99 for balancing.

                                This would have cost me $45 plus tax.

                                I bring the spare tires to the store in my pickup, drop them off, go get my car and bring it in. The salesperson approaches me on the return and says that my tires (the set not on the car) are low profile so there is a $25 charge. I explained again, the tires coming off the xxrs are scrap. The tires I'm putting on are just normal tires... She tells me it's $5 per tire for disposal. Due in store was the balancing, the low profile charge (don't understand this) and the disposal fee and taxes. Above the $25 I spent, it's $96.00. I was totally okay with $120 to put on my new shoes... I was also already there.

                                Then they jack my car... Undo the bolts and come to tell me my tires won't fit the new rims. They told me the 225/45/18s would not fit my 18" 8.75 xxrs. That I had to purchase new rubbers. Sailun Atrezzo Z4 A/S is their recommendation. Naturally this boosted my overall in store price to $610. Oh, and, a second disposal fee for the new rubbers... Because unlike batteries where we all pay disposal upfront and can get rid of for free... Apparently on tires you pay the disposal at purchase and at time of disposal.

                                Someone please sort me out. I put more effort into trying to learn to read tire charts as I did writing this long ass rant.

                                      Hello fellow fusion owners my fiance and I recently purchased a 14 titanium

                                      Hello fellow fusion owners, my fiance and I recently purchased a 14' titanium. It's got sync with MyFord radio. We're having a slight issue with the Bluetooth connection on our Galaxy s7 phones. It will connect to the call audio but won't connect to media. (Which is the only reason we would need the bluetooth) lol . It will switch on, then right back off and say "unable to connect to SYNC."

                                      If we delete the phone from the radio and reconnect it then it'll work the first time then continue doing it after. Also tried clearing cache on our phones and factory reseting the radio. Has anyone else had problems with this or possibly have a fix for it?? Any help is appreciated!

                                        To all my fusions and milans who are on coilovers, I just installed my CX Racing coilovers on my Milan and the rear end isn't low enough. I took the adjustment for the spring out so in the rear it's nothing but shock and spring. I know that since its brand new stuff is going to be a little stiff but I see some of you on coilovers tucking wheels or having the car completely level(which is what I'm trying to go for). How long before it settles to the point where the rear and front are the same? Can anyond help on this?

                                          I ran my audio cables for my amp and sub today

                                          I ran my audio cables for my amp and sub, today.

                                          I have a 13 titanium.

                                          I searched google, this forum and YouTube for a complete guide. I figured, every third car on the road is a fusion.. there has to be some legit tutorials!

                                          Nah, son. Bits and pieces at best.

                                          For the people that have asked for details but never really got enough info to do the install, here's what I did.

                                          Took out the battery.

                                          Behind the battery is this thing. It's got a few metal tubes sticking up from it. Look behind that. You'll see the plug in the firewall that you need to reach. Good luck. It's somewhat thick rubber and it's pretty packed with wires. I ended up just popping the corner of the boot out and snaking the 4 gauge through. The plug is behind and above your brake pedal. Mine had insulation covering it, so it took a bit to find it.

                                          Remote wire.. there were no solid answers as to which fuse to run from. I decided to run off the 30 amp sunroof fuse. The fuses are under the drivers dash.. hard as shit to access if you've got muscular forearms.

                                          I would have loved to run the remote off the factory amp, but couldn't get enough info to figure it out, so yeah..

                                          I snaked the remote and the 4 gauge under the kick panels along the drivers side, under the back seat, into the trunk. You'll see a tube of wires under the seat, just follow that.

                                          Ground. As you look into the trunk, the panel on your left side.. undo the hardware and pull that back a bit. There is a ground bolt that's grounding some wires, that's where I attached my negative wire.

                                          Line conversion.. left sub grey is negative, right sub yellow is negative.

                                          So, that's as far as I went today. All the wires are in place. Tomorrow I'll hook up the cap, amp and sub. I'm still iffy if the remote wire will work.. I'm using a kicker 2 chan line converter which has a remote wire. Some said I could use that, but I'm unclear if it'll work with my fosgate amp. If the sunroof fuse doesn't work, that's my next thing to try.

                                          The install isn't bad, but it's got it's hard to reach areas that can suck. Also, doing it with pieced together info had me spending a good bit of time searching the net. If anyone has any questions, let me know. I've probably encountered it today

                                            Alright guys I need your fabulous brains! Having trunk issues. When the trunk is open it shows its shut. When it's closed it shows trunk is ajar which isn't terrible but it leaves the dome light on. To top it all off its not the original lock that my key fits, so I can't just open it with the key and unplug the latch. Bought a new latch thinking this one just had wiring issues, but the new latch does the same thing. Switched some of the wires around on the trunk itself, but none of those work either. I bought this trunk lid off a friend *cough cough Jake Hillewaere* when mine was damaged. We can not for the life of us figure out what's going on. Any ideas at all? Pics for attention....

                                              How does a 2017 Titanium handle rental abuse, you ask? Well lets see, at 19,708 miles, the car drives normally and just recieved it's 2nd oil change ever, but the front tires are already at 6/32nds, rear tires are at 4/32nds. Inside, the shifter dial has severe scratching on the top face and the leather has lost its matte finish that it comes with new. Outside, the front bumper is sand blasted with micro sized rock chips, and the right rear quarter panel has had body & paint work, and all 4 wheels have been curbed. Our Fusions in general don't normally wear terribly well so I'm not too surprised at the things I pointed out. What do y'all think? Is this premature wear on Ford's part or normal for 20,000 miles?

                                                2nd gen owners I m going to install my amp kit this weekend I m seeing 2...

                                                2nd gen owners! I'm going to install my amp kit, this weekend. I'm seeing 2 different ways to get the power wire through the firewall. Which method did YOU use? Also, do you have Sony surround? If so, which speaker is best to tap for subs, when using surround?

                                                I want to do this the cleanest way possible. I'm using 4 gauge.

                                                ANY tips/tricks/pros/cons are welcomed. Your input is valuable!

                                                If wondering.. I'm running 4 gauge, remote to sun roof fuse, I have a 13 titanium with Sony surround. Using line converter from speaker wire for RCA source. 400x2 fosgate running 800x1 into a fosgate 12" sealed box. Capacitor. Amp and sub being installed in trunk, up against back seat.

                                                Here's a photo of what I'm using. I'm using everything except the Bolt amp. This setup was in my 3000GT until I sold it a few months ago.

                                                  I work the graveyard shift so sorry for the early post but I'm getting my windows tinted after work and I'm sitting here still contemplating wether to black the front out like this yet. The plate has to stay there cuz the holes would drive me insane. Don't mind my iPhone photoshop skills I did the best I could. To help the process the chrome around the windows will be wrapped gloss black, 20% tint, light smoke tint on front lights and dark smoke tint on tail lights. The wheels will be gloss black as well as roof when I get around to it. Just to give an idea of the look I'm going for.

                                                      Hey everyone, so as i was giving the '13 SE a wash the other day, i noticed this for the FIRST time ever. (Amazing considering how OCD i am about my car) I believe i bought it like this, and just literally never noticed it. I know a body shop worker and according to him this chrome trim is part of the window and i would need to purchase a used window just to get the piece of trim. I wanted to verify whether or not this is true, has anyone had this issue before and if so how did you go about replacing it? Also if anyone is parting out a fusion and would be willing to take this piece off i would buy it. Thanks everyone.

                                                        So I finally found some bronze enkei rims for my fusion. Please leave me honest oppinions. I have the off white color, it's not solid white I forget what they call it, not Oxford white, it's like that cream off set white, anyways I've been bouncing the idea of some different paint setups and the metallic bronze looks absolutely amazing on the white. But rims are a bold statement for your car. I am ordering coil overs to lower the car a bit for summer, how do thies rims fair up in your mind?. Thanks guys and gals in this group, your all great people.

                                                          Rice talk 101..... I must be so confused. Lmfao. Or maybe just old. Anyways....when customizing my car, I really put alot of thought in to all my mods. I got the 3d carbon body kit because it was very smooth and less "ricey" looking. I've went through lots of tire and wheel choices till I've finally got ones that I like. I don't go to pepoys or auto zone for my customizing parts. I've never bought a huge aluminum wing that the car doesn't need. Nor have I bought fake hood scoops etc. Don't have stupid lights or sticker bombed stuff. I really don't see any rice. And as far as the graphics.... these are not stickers. I painted them myself. I am currently tired of them but can't afford to change them right now. It is in the plans. But I know when I redo them I will be sure to do something no one likes just because that's who I am. And even have more reason to now. Lmao

                                                            (2014 2.0EB)

                                                            So, I like to think of Random shit to keep my mind flowing. Helps me learn i suppose


                                                            I was thinking... Since our Exhaust Manifold is integrated into our Cylinder Head (right?), we would have to get a custom Head in order to change the Manifold.

                                                            But, would it be at all possible to do a port/polish/bore/whatever to the manifold to increase the airflow capabilities?

                                                            I have no intentions of doing this quite yet but, if its a viable option then i would most definitely keep it on the back burner after im done with everything else.

                                                            So, any thoughts on it?

                                                              Alright so if some of you don't know there's an app called 3D tuning where they have a ton of cars there you can modify and pretty much get an idea of where you want to go with your car. Here's mine I would like to do the ez lip up front and sides, there's a rear bumper add on I've seen on eBay I'm thinking about getting, a rear roof spoiler but smaller then the one shown, I'll be tinting lights and already have the grill dipped to my liking, gloss vinyl wrap roof and spoilers. I'm 50/50 on the wheels idonno what color I want to go with. What do you guys think? (Btw the chrome would be blacked out also just can't do it on the app)

                                                                I came from driving a Pontiac Grand Prix Gtp and Two Trans Ams before that

                                                                I came from driving a Pontiac Grand Prix Gtp and Two Trans Ams before that. Now to a 2011 Ford Fusion SEL with 92 thousand miles because I felt personally like it would be more dependable and reliable and last me longer. But everyone in my family is saying that they don't see me in this car long and see me in something faster, So I want to prove to them wrong. I have been researching and I just want to know how exactly does the SCT tuner work? will I need a laptop to use it? Or do I just plug it in and upload a tune? And how does different fuel grade tunes exactly work say I was to upload a premium tune to my car would there need to be any extra work done to the engine? And I am also looking for visual mods to a burgundy colored car and what colors do you think goes best with burgundy.

                                                                  Question about window tint i had my 2g tinted last Saturday I asked for 20 front and 5 rear and got it back and it seemed to light looked like 35 in the front and rears seemed light as well I could still see through the rear window up close. So I went back to ask about it and he says he put on what I requested but still didn't seem right so had me get a meter put on it and would fix it if it came up lite. Factory glass 81% Front door was 23% and back was 6% on the meter. Gave him those and still says its how it is and that it won't meter under 20% unless you went darker than 20 on it. So what I'm wondering is how can i tell for sure what % is on there so i can get it fixed if its not right.

                                                                  %d comments

                                                                    Anybody else with a 1.5 gen with a squeaking blower motor? Of coarse there is! Well I have a solution. I took mine apart because I'm curious. After taking off the plastic end cap there was a metal end cap on the motor itself. I took that off too (All Phillips). I noticed that for the end of the armature there is not a bearing it's just a bushing. I also noticed that it's a brushed DC motor and that the brushes made A LOT of dust in there. My theory is it's this dust in the bushing that makes noise. So I blew out the dust. Then put di-electric grease on both the bushing and the brushes. Hopefully the grease on the brushes keeps the dust down. No more squeak and is way cheaper than replacing the motor.

                                                                    %d comments

                                                                      I was curious to see out of the 9k plus members here on Ford Fusion Club, how many have the 2017 Sport with the 2.7L Ecoboost? And how you like it, pro's & con's. Thanks.

                                                                        Long story short, 4 months ago on my way to work a section of interstate had popped, it went from 20 degrees one day w/ snow, the next 48, then it dropped to 15 degrees w/ a brisk -2 wind chill. It broke out a big section down to the rebar and killed 13 vehicles that day. It made the news, it got 3 oil pans (mine included) and countless rims and tires.

                                                                        After lots of fighting the state denied all our claims about a month ago. So i picked up an oil pan new, read alldata and it said it takes either 10.4 or 12.2 hours to accomplish, being as you've got to disassemble the top end, to take the front accessories off, to take the timing cover off to get the oil pan. Basically explaining you should pretty much drop the sub frame w/ engine in order to not want to shoot yourself while doing this. Needless to say being an accomplished land rover and jag tech, having ase and i-car certs and loving to tinker and work on all 11 of my cars and all 8 of my rc's, i tackled it in 2 hours without removing any of it.

                                                                        Basically you need 15, 13, 10, 8 and a 5mm wrench sockets and a flat blade for 2 odd things.

                                                                        Removing the exhaust on my 11 3.5L sport is easy as it's stainless, the cats aren't stainless but with 52k miles everything was clean and easy.

                                                                        Once the front y pipes off, the million bolts holding the pan on, can come out, the 4 thru the timing cover, the 4 into the bell housing, the bracket for the front cat, which reveals a hidden 10 that's extremely long, the dust cover that seals the bell housing from crap, reveals two small short 8's. Undo the 13 nut that the bottom ac bracket gets torqued held on by.

                                                                        Here's the fun part and was a "mistake" that can be learned from, those all removed, hit said shitty oil pan with a dead blow towards the back of the car, once the RTV seal is broken, you'll be back about 1/2 an inch. Now since you can't swing it down as it's tight against time cover and bell housing, can't go back any further due to hitting the axle shaft, and can't go down b/c of that ac stud you are stuck.

                                                                        I took a pair of needle nose since none of my 1/4" 5mm sockets were short enough to fit in between the stud end and lower cross rail, and even if they are the minute you back it out it'll jam up against that lower rail, the needle nose fit in the opening between pan and ac mount hole on the smooth surface and didn't damage threads. Slowly and surely i backed it out till the pan was loose and dropped down.

                                                                        Clean and clean and clean, then put a decent ball of rtv in the corners where the pan meets the timing cover and bottom of the block, rtv bead the other mating surfaces, and reassembly is reversed.

                                                                        That being said at the time, my wrench sets both normal and ratcheting go down to 7 or 8 only. My dad had a usa craftsman that was a 5mm to fit the hex on the end of the stud for the ac mount and it worked great, b/c once the new pan is sealed and torqued, there's no room for the needle nose like i had used for removal. So make sure you have a 5mm wrench when you attempt it.

                                                                        Just figured for those that have low cars and kill oil pans, a 2k trip to the dealer, or 10 hours of your life on disassembly, or a big hit on insurance rates to turn in, i can save you some time and money....and this is the first time i can contribute a quick write up for the community. Several days later and many heat cycles no leaks or issues have occured, as that was my concern breaking the lower seal of the timing cover.

                                                                        Any questions, feel free to ask away.

                                                                        On an OCD note, after the new pan is pushed up and rtv'd start all the bolts, and i tightened the 4 going thru the timing cover first so it would create the best seal there, as it's the low spot for oil to seep, and then tighten the pan to block, then to bell housing. That seemed to work the best for me.

                                                                          Hey everyone. Just joined, first post.

                                                                          I own a 2013 Fusion Titanium with the 2.0L EcoBoost.

                                                                          I love it and want it to last a long time.

                                                                          With that being said, what can I be doing besides standard maintenance to ensure it lasts?

                                                                          Any easy upgrades I can do for mostly reliability, maybe a little performance increase?

                                                                          What about common problem areas? I also own a 6.0 Diesel truck so I know how important it is to keep up with maintenance. Anything I need to look out for before it becomes a problem?

                                                                              I just want to Thank You, the Ford Fusion Club, I've had a very positive time here in my short time being a member. I know everyone has there own opinion and that's great that's the way it's supposed to be. Not all of us are going to agree on what looks good but for the most part there isn't to many negatives. I Love seeing everyone's upgrades whether it be appearance or performance modifications and even if it's just completely Stock that's OK too because that's what you want and if it wasn't for the stock look we all wouldn't like it either. So again I Thank You for letting me and others have alot of fun discussing a car we all love. FUSION FAMILY!!!

                                                                                I'm not sure where to start, but my 2013 Titanium has been dying on me. It's either when I get home and am sitting in the drive-way in park and the car is idling or when I back out of the drive-way, put it in drive and after a few seconds it will just lose power and not accelerate then it dies when it stops rolling. It doesn't happen all the time, some days are worse than others. I've replaced the fuel sensor, the throttle box, and have flashed it. Can't seem to figure out where the issue is. Any advice? I've only had the car for about 10 months and would hate to have to trade it in...

                                                                                  I have one in mind I'd like to mod into my car, but the biggest hurdle is the airbag.

                                                                                  What of SRS faults? How did you clear them if at all?

                                                                                  I have seen Honda guys that used resisters to trick the system into thinking a bag was installed.

                                                                                  The only reason I want the SRS system to detect no faults isn't as much for me as it is for passengers. In the rare event I have someone in the car, I at least want them to have the safety of the air bags.

                                                                                  Me personally, I've never cared for them. Call it an irrational fear, or perhaps simply an aversion.

                                                                                  As a hint, the wheel I want to install DOES have an airbag, bit it is from a different manufacturer, so I don't k ow if it will play nice with fords SRS system.

                                                                                  Thanks all!

I'm used to pulling full frame trucks out of mud, not a lowered unibody backwards on a rack lol.

                                                                                      They have oem leather covers around 35 on eBay last I look can't find link currently.

                                                                                      Make me a realistic offer if your serious on buying these. I've seen the prices on eBay for these in great condition which I think they are crazy cost on shipping. Let me know I can process PayPal or cash in person lets get these seats to a good home!!!!

                                                                                        As you can see, prior to stripping down, they were painted (shabby might I add) once I removed the old paint, you can tell there are surprises in there: a couple of Santa Fe's, a Soo Line, many boxcars. In looking At then, you wouldn't even know some were even out of the box.

                                                                                        Yes I'm aware GTW 1980 never existed---but seems I wanted a locomotive with my birth year and I'm partial to GTW, what is better than having both worlds?

                                                                                          My 2016 Fusion SE 2.0L Ecoboost is having minor issues with the rear park aid. This morning as I was leaving for work, I shifted the gear into reverse as I was pulling out of the parking space at my apartment. I noticed that the MyFord Touch screen were showing all red blocks on the screen when there is obviously nothing surrounding my vehicle as I checked my surroundings. It also gave a loud solid beeping sound. I'm am thinking that there may be something wrong with the sensors. Any ideas to troubleshoot this before I take it into the dealer? Thanks in advance.

                                                                                            I have a driveline vibration between 30km/h and 40km/h, and then smooth sailing up until 75-83/85 km/h. I've had it back to the shop that safetied it. Driveshaft is brand new with ujoints. Took it to Ford, and had a rim replaced that was bent. Still the vibration persists.

                                                                                            Let me say that it doesn't shake the car terribly hard. I don't feel it in the steering wheel as it's more of a complete vibration throughout. I feel it predominantly in my seat. I read somewhere that the PTU could cause the issue. How can I check it, and what do I look for?

                                                                                            Or any other ideas?

                                                                                            Thanks for the input.

What has been your economic strategy for acquiring them? Certainly not everyone in this group is exceptionally well off, (if you are, what do you do for work, and what has been your strategy for purchasing fantastic cars?) yet you still manage gorgeous vehicles. Since I would one day like to achieve my dream car, I'd love to hear your tips/tricks/methods for effectively being able to afford such a thing. Post a photo of your vehicle if you like with an explanation of how you went about buying it.

                                                                                                Here is a good one about the Ford oem cell control. (Remote access)

                                                                                                The Ford module goes into deep sleep after 72 hours of no vehicle use. When it's asleep it will not work. The user must pre-program a wakeup time at LEAST 24 hours in advance.

                                                                                                So, your vehicle is at the airport and you go on vacation. As plane lands on the way home and you want to remote start, you cannot, if you didn't program the wakeup!

                                                                                                And right now Ford is having problems with their system and units are not coming out of sleep even when the vehicle is driven. I have seen many in the last week or so not working.

                                                                                                So there is a selling feature for smart start. No silly sleep mode that you have to remember to schedule a wakeup call!

                                                                                                  For the past three days I've been having issues with sync and I was wanting to see if any of you have felt with this issue. I have reset the system and my phone to no avail. Sync can find my phone and pair up with it. I can also use it to make calls and I can hear the people calling me through the sound system, however when I want to play audio from my phone either by YouTube or google play music or Apple Music nothing happens. No audio comes through. Why is it that sync works just fine to make calls but won't play audio? When I hit search for Bluetooth devices it always tells me that there aren't any Bluetooth devices available to connect. I've done everything imaginable to fix this issue but nothing works. Any ideas ?

So my mom is in the market for a new or certified pre owned car. She has a Buick Enclave but it isn't used to its full potential so she feels that she's just throwing money away. She needs something safe, reliable, and enough trunk space to fit a hockey bag and a baby stroller. Do you guys think the fusion would meet her needs? I've even thought about a Taurus. She had a 2007 Fusion (which was given to me when I got my license) and she loved that car. She doesn't want a huge SUV anymore.

                                                                                                          Wondering if anyone with this system can take some measurements for me. I need to know the screen size opening, as well as the size of it if I were to cut the bezel open from the marked lines.

                                                                                                          Also, not sure if anyone can answer this here, but if I wanted to add dual zone climate, what's involved? I know there should be a temp sensor for the passenger side, but would I need the HVAC box as well? I want to use this bezel for an audio project in the future and I'm beginning it when my tax return comes in.

                                                                                                          Thanks for the help!

I left my house and a minute down the road the maintence light came on. The transmission seemed to hang in gear on decel, would still shift fine under slow accel but wouldnt downshift when trying to accelerate. I got back home, put it in park and revved it and heres where it gets stranger. It revved like it didnt have the park/neutral limmiter and very freely and quickly. you ccould tell that the throttle body actually opened all the way not like it normally does. the sad part is that as soon as i turned it off and back on, everything was normal again lol sorry for the long story but has this happened to anyone else?

I think I did alright considering I spent zero dollars. My uncle own a body shop and he let me use his place and materials while giving me some very good advice! I'll be painting it later this week.

We will do the same. This is the Ford Fusion Club. Not the Gun Owners of America club or the Alt-right Nation or The Liberal Lovers Lounge. You have a problem with it? Leave. We will help you. We allow posts in here about off topic stuff in moderation. But politics, especially negative positions on others beliefs are not. They cause non car related flame wars every single time. I will be modifying the rules to express this soon.

After changing my rear shocks the passenger side rear is making a squeaking noise just that side. The driver side sounds great just the way it should. I only hear this noise when hitting the right bump at the right speed. After looking over everything twice I feel like it could possible be a back stock that I just got new. I feel doubtful that this is the cause but only thing I have came up with. Anyone ever had this noise or have any ideas what could cause it? All was fine till I changed these shocks.

I know this isnt a fusion and delet if needed i have a question for the painters in the group. Im about to start work on prepping the car in this picture but have never done anything like a full restoration before. Ik the basic paint stripping. The body fill. Sanding but i just know basics. What tools would ve best and stuff like that is what im asking. Ill be making a makshift paint tent using a regular car tent sealed off on both ends..air tight with sand around the the sides. With a fan sucking the air out and a small vent allowing fresh air in. But not before going through a carbon filter. What should i do. Not do. Where do i start?? Any help would be amazing

I hate to sell it but I can't afford 2 cars on my insurance so sadly I have to let one go. The car drives nice and has lots of power.Always serviced it on time . Oil changes every 3000 miles religiously . The car is not PERFECT but its looks good for its age.

                                                                                                                            I am hoping somebody can help me with a problem that I am having. When I start my car and go to start driving it will shake and stall. There is no Rhyme or Reason that I can find why it does it. It doesn't when it wants to warm or cold. I took it to a dealer and they did tests on it and they could not find anything. It doesn't when I first start it or if I start it after I drive it for a little bit. There is no check engine light or anything on. The alternator was tested and is fine. I am stumped can somebody please help???

                                                                                                                              So I'm trying to figure the radio wiring. My 07 SEL has the door speakers, tweeters and rear deck subs. The harness kit I bought has the main harness and a small harness with 2 amp wires and a set of RCAs. My factory radio has 3 harnesses coming out of it. I will not be using the steering wheel controls. So far I just matched up color for color on the aftermarket harness from the radio to the Metra harness. I still have to use connectors so don't mind that. The small one both blue wires say Amp power on. Pfa.

                                                                                                                                Well guys, I'm officially out of the game. The fusion cracked it's head shortly after it was back on the road from my last accident. Due to my financial situation as a college student, I will not be able to put the money into the car for more repairs. I now have to sell my beloved fusion for dirt and must purchase a junker to get me through college. I will be more than happy to help anyone who has questions or needs advice on mods. God bless you all.

                                                                                                                                (yes I will be parting out but it will take me time to get everything out of the car)

                                                                                                                                  Having a stalling issue with my 13 fusion se 1.6 ecoboost. It's been going on for about a year but just recently started doing it more frequently this past 3 months. After driving it and getting to operating temp if I park and turn it off any where from 15-60 minutes, then get back in it to take off it will stall any where from 1-3 times. If I Park and leave the car running in Park after about 15 minutes it will die on its own.

                                                                                                                                  When it stalls the rpms will jump around for about 10 seconds and then just shut off. If I try revving the engine it doesn't make a difference.

                                                                                                                                  Check engine light is on, but for only a engine coolant sensor. Took it to ford to check for codes and only two codes popped up for them. I replaced the parts myself since they wanted 600 for 50 in parts.

                                                                                                                                  So far I have replaced the evap. hoses under the hood, fuel pressure sensor, evap. Purge canister under the trunk area and no difference.

                                                                                                                                  Any ideas before I spend more money on this car?

Yesterday when i was driving my right front wheel started to vibrate. I figure it was snow packed it. So i stopped and went to go and look. My wheel was clean. When i went back into my car and put it into drive i had no power whats ever full throttle only got me to 2 mph and could barely get over 1k rpms. So i stopped my car. Waited a minute or two then turned it off. Waited another minute or two then started it back up and the little wrench to the left of the P R symbol on gauge cluster was gone and i had full power again. But i still had a vibration. So when i got home i put it in my dads heated shop and let it sit over night. Now today when i drove to and from work my wheel was fine. Any help please and thanks. Sorry for the book just wanted to be detailed.

                                                                                                                                      For those of you with 06-09 V6 Fusions that have the SCT tuner with James 93 Tune, I have finally found the perfect group of settings to maximize gas mileage. When programming the James tune, adjust all the shift points to (-3), and both the neutral and drive idles at 550rpm. Yes, on occasion the RPM mat bounce slightly when for a second here and there, but no big deal. For those of you who have noticed, on occasion the James tune stays a gear too high and refuses to upshift when you take your foot off the gas. In addition, it tends to downshift too early when cruising over hills. Well with these settings all of that is eliminated. You also won't have all these wacky shift points anymore like before, and shifting will be much smoother, but still pleasantly firm as well. And you wouldn't expect it, but there's actually less lag when trying to hit the gas while taking a left turn than before. I've also noticed my gas mileage begin to go up a few tenths of an mpg. Overall I say these are the best settings for that particular tune. No other settings were adjusted, other than removal of the speed limiter.

                                                                                                                                        They gave it back to me Dec 29th. I took it back to them January 5th because it was leaking oil out of the turbo. They fixed an oil line and bolt and gave it back on January 12th. Just so happens Maine was about 50 degrees (January thaw) that day, so all of a sudden that day my turbo started making weird noises, tranny wasn't shifting right, I lost power steering a few times, felt like traction control was coming on and the car was skidding when brakes were applied even though there was no ice. I put my heat on the floor, it automatically switched it to defrost, then back to the floor. Heated seats shut off whenever they feel like it. Then my one touch up/down windows stopped working.

                                                                                                                                        Last night as I was driving it for the second time since Thursday, my automatic high beam/low beam didn't work right.

                                                                                                                                        This morning, I went to apply the brakes 3 different times and they went straight to the floor, the other times I used them they worked fine. Also, my passenger light came on the dash to say someone was in the front seat. The dinger didn't go off and there was nothing in the front seat. Car still smells like it's burning oil and the motor that has 8000 miles on it (they put a used motor in it) gets AWFUL fuel mileage. My old motor I was getting 27-32 with mid grade, this one I am getting 20-25 AT BEST with mid grade or premium.

                                                                                                                                        Biggest problem is half of this stuff stops working whenever it wants to. I am so unbelievably pissed off.

                                                                                                                                        Oh, and the dealership jacked my $150 Ford rubber floor mats and covered my carpet ones with a paper mat hoping I didn't realize they were missing

                                                                                                                                          So you join a Fusion discussion group where people (of all types, ages, monetary levels, etc) love their Fusion. Someone asks "What can I do to improve the performance of MY FUSION". And you think to yourself "Sell it" or "Buy a Mustang" or "it's not a race car". And you ACTUALLY TYPE THAT RESPONSE. Why??? I Don't get it. They didn't ask if they should sell their car. They didn't ask if they should get a mustang. They didn't say they think their car is a race car. All they said is they want to improve the performance of the car they clearly really like or they probably wouldn't be in this group. And it's very possible to improve the performance noticeably. So how are any of the aforementioned irrelevant answers a good or even intelligent idea? Because this happens pretty often. I just don't get it.

Typically, when I go to the store, I like to park some distance from the store so I can get my exercise (or think I do:). On the day in question, my back was hurting me so I decided to park closer. Went to go unload groceries (not thinking I parked close) and walked out to that other black Fusion. I tried the fob and couldn't get it to work. Was getting ready to unlock manually when something said 'go look at license plates.' Turns out it wasn't my car! Had I not checked the license plates, I still would have been out there!

Love the car, first newish car I've owned. I came from mustangs and with kids it was time to go to 4 doors so I picked this up thinking it had potential to be better then it already is. What kind of mods can these ladies handle? I haven't been able to clean her cuz it's been a crazy winter but I have tints lined up, I ordered tints to get the headlights/fog lights and tail lights done as soon as I can get into my garage and am thinking of wrapping my wheels black along with between the front grills and any chrome that's around the car. I wish I could get some more exhaust tone out of her but haven't found anything through my research. Anyway here's my girl.

Definitely going to reblack the grille and rear chrome trim and it will be a black chrome finish. Where I'm on the fence is idk if I want to do just the top bar, just the middle bar or do the top and bottom and leave the middle chrome. The badge on the front is black and I know I don't want to do the whole grille black. I want to leave part of it chrome since my wheels are black and chrome and have the chrome around the lower grille and fogs. Which of the 3 do you guys think? Pic for reference and attention.

I know magnaflow makes an exhaust for these cars but with a $616 price tag i cant see paying that.. what types of mufflers did you guys run that give a little noise but not over the top loud.. i was told the cats/downpipe is really restricting on the 1.5 and thats why no turbo chop sound out exhaust.. this is my 1st factory turbo car.. i'm use to high flow spun cats and straight pipe from there... sorry if my wording sounds stupid dont know how else to explain it..

                                                                                                                                                          So I was driving down the road and I decided to put my car into select shift. It went into self shift mode easily and I downshifted twice all of a sudden the check engine light came on and the check transmission light came on. I went to put the shifter back into automatic transmission mode and it did not want to go very easily. I tried to give my car a little bit of gas in it would not accelerate at all. Felt like it was in limp mode. The car would downshift just fine I came to a stop when it was my turn to go the car would not accelerate over 2000 RPM. I limped it into a gas station and I shifted from drive into neutral and there was a small clunk. Then I went from neutral to park and there was a pretty decent clunk from the transmission. I turned the car off I let it sit for a few moments and turned it back on to see what would happen. The check engine light stayed on but the check transmission light turned off. I then drove to the nearest car parts store and have them test the diagnostics and it came up with a shift solenoid error(P0974). I will be replacing the shift solenoid but has anybody ever experienced issues with the SST mode? A few days ago I put it into SST mode and it seemed like it did not want to downshift easily. Also like the shifter didn't have the proper feeling to it.

It has 35000 miles on it. well it seemed to be doing ok until when i went to pass someone it went to speed up and then its like the trans got stuck and would shift and i almost hit someone in the ass end doing 75mph. then i went to switch lanes and the engine shook like it was about to die also doing around 75mph. i also have some strange noise from the dash when i turn my car off and on when the heat is on. and when i use my phone its all air/static in the background so people cant understand me. today they updated my sync but it didnt work and they told me they were backed up because of trans issues on other fusion currently... i honestly dont know what to do i have neg and im at my wits end

I am debating on them or even debating on making a deal on both of them and ditching the 14 SE both cars are loaded mkz has extra features like heated back seats etc but any issues with the 2013 mkz? I know it looks very similar to the fusions and uses alot of parts etc. But mechanically etc just wondered if anything was different or problems etc. Any help appreciated.

Just curious if anyone on here has any feedback before I order them from China? These are supposed to be direct fit, plug & play. My question is, I want my fogs to work with my headlamps like they do now but I want the LED daytime running lamps to always stay on if I'm driving or the car is turned "on". Is that doable without cutting the factory harness? My car is a 16 still under warranty... I don't want to cut the wiring incase it voids it. Thanks in advance!

                                                                                                                                                                  I've only had my Fusion for a week, so I'm not overly familiar with the vehicle yet, but I have noticed two things.

                                                                                                                                                                  Beginning around 38km/h and ending around 44km/h, I get a driveline vibration noticeable enough to feel it in my seat. Steering wheel has no vibration. It doesn't matter what gear/engine RPM, so I'm lead to believe it's something with the driveshaft and/or components leading to the rear.

                                                                                                                                                                  Second thing is a slight whine while taking off. It only happens when taking off from a dead stop. Thoughts on that?

                                                                                                                                                                  It's a 2008 SEL 3.0L and AWD. Thanks!

This looks like a part of its own, as it is fastened in by screws. (Will update with pics later, just in a rush at the moment). Most of you probably know what im talking about, its the same part that would get scraped up from parking too far over a high curb. I've looked into the aftermarket front lips by Stillen, which looks like it would replace that piece yet at the same time looks like it may only sit over it, and therefore would still leave some of this damage exposed. All in all the damage is minor and you have to be looking for it, but it bugs the hell out of me!

                                                                                                                                                                      What im looking for: Has anyone replaced this part before? Will a body shop have access to the stock version or do i NEED to buy some aftermarket piece to cover it up? I really like this Stillen lip anyways, but i cant tell if it is replacing that bottom stock lip piece of just sitting on it, here's a link

If i start it let it warm up and go to R its fine. This morning its 15 degrees here i started it it went to cold start rpms then the wrench light came on and it idled at like 800 rpms. i restarted a few times and it did it. SO i started to drive to work and it had alot less power like it was on 3 cylinders. Gas mileage sucked and had a hard time getting to 75mph. Big hill was coming up so i went to N shut the car off and restarted. Put the car in drive and floored it and the light stayed away and it was fine the rest of the way. Car has 190k. I was thinking spark plugs but it wouldnt go away i wouldnt think. Someone at work says it could be build up on the back of the throttle body intake plate thing. Any ideas or things to check?

X-pipe & 2.5" all the way with magnaflow mufflers IIRC. Not as raspy as the MRT axle-back sounds in their videos. Still not a symphony of badassery, but what did you really expect? Lol. It's gotta spread not even 3 liters across 6 cylinders before being muffled by two turbos. I mean Nissan's RB26DETT sounds alright with only -0.1 liter's difference but that's inline. To each his own, sh*t, I like the sound of Volvo's inline 5's more than some v6s out there if I'm being honest. Lol.

Every once in a great while I will see what appears to be an 07 Sport Appearance Package car. But I was always under the impression they were only 08+. These 07s aren't quite the full package either. They have the normal tall spoiler, missing some silver dash trim, no brushed stainless exhaust tips, possibly no "sport tuned" suspension and have full painted face 17" wheels that are the same design as SEL wheels. I found one on Craigslist today while browsing and ran the vin through Ford Etis, all the equipment on the car is stock according to the vin but the Etis page doesn't list any of it as part of a package since it breaks each option down. Was this an early version of an SAP? They sure don't pop up nearly as often as the real deal 08+ cars.

                                                                                                                                                                              Question my 2013 white 79000 the transmission seems to have no pull to it when taking off from a dead stop. After that it is very slow to build up speed if I slow down and turn it wants to jolt the also no power to get up a slight hill. Wrench dose come on but when I shut the car off and turn back on its off for a minute or so. Took it to ford and they put a new throttle body in. Then was told the trans was gone in it but then told the transmission mechanistic was not there to look at it. Drove the car home drained trans and found out it only had three quarts of fluid so put 5 quarts in.

I'm coming up on the 100K mile mark and am looking to replace/upgrade my suspension. Currently I'm looking into some lowering springs with either Koni or Bilstein shocks/struts. I've been looking at steeda, eibach pro and sportline, h&r and vogtland springs and im getting mixed reviews on all of them! Who in here has personal experience and can vouch for or shut down any of them OR can point me in the direction of something different? I'd like to throw out this is my DD.. never has and never will see a track.. Thanks in advance!

                                                                                                                                                                                    Hey everyone. Have a 2012 Fusion SE with 2.5l. Bought it new with 7 miles on it and closing in on 107k miles now. Only maintenence I've done is regular 5k oil changes and tires. It's needing brakes and will be doing that in the coming weeks, but my question is about coolant. It currently has factory fill orange coolant. If I flush, can I refill with something more easily accessible like Peak long life green? I've read and heard mixed things and wanted to get others input from this group. I plan to change the thermstat as well when I change the coolant. Looking for your thoughts.

                                                                                                                                                                                    %d comments

                                                                                                                                                                                      Over the last couple of weeks especially on our colder Florida days I noticed my defrost would stop working in idle. It would go cold. This last Friday as I was driving the thermostat went high and then went back to the half way mark where it should be. My brother in law is a mechanic and I was seeing him that morning so I told him about it. We opened the hood and the coolant was gone! He said there had got to be a leak somewhere. Turns out a T-fitting piece was the leaking point of entry. I made an appointment with the dealership. They wanted $90 just to diagnose even though my BIL did a pressure test to find where the leak was. The service advisor said they had to diagnose to see what part it was to get the number off the part....well we walked right over to the parts store at the dealer and they pulled up the diagram and they had 1 in stock! $37!! We ended up giving my BIL some cash for the help...turned a possible $2-3 hundred job into a $70 job. I know that the dealer makes money off their non-warranty jobs but we paid for a useless extended warranty and I can guarantee you we won't buy another one again!!

                                                                                                                                                                                        The strut brace has a little imperfection see pic and the intake has normal wear and tear filter has a few minor dents see pics . This is probably by far the best intake I've ever installed as far as quality and looks go. I would like to sell both items together

                                                                                                                                                                                        I really do not have any clue as for a price so I will set a price of 300 OBO for both shipping included

                                                                                                                                                                                          Hi gang,

                                                                                                                                                                                          Can anyone help me with the apps FordPass, and MyFordMobile? I can't use the FordPass app, as soon as it has the VIN it tells me to use MyFordMobile, as it's an electric car.

                                                                                                                                                                                          Is there any loss of utility/function in using MFM over FP?

                                                                                                                                                                                          I can't for the life of me get MFM to even work a little bit. I never get the "authorization" to allow the app in the car. I understand it's a 3 stage process, and that the final authorization takes 24 hours to receive. I can't get to stage 1 (the initial authorization). Any ideas?

                                                                                                                                                                                          Thanks !

                                                                                                                                                                                            One of the things we didn't like about the tlf grilles was the fact that the rear openings don't match. If you look at the grille from behind, the left opening is not the same shape as the right. One side is much more pointy while the other is rounded... so we've created 2 completely new grilles from scratch that focuses on making the face look as nice as the rear. ;-) we've raised the bottom ledge to hide the bumper bar (so you don't have to paint your ugly internals to hide them) And we've aligned our slats. When we started making the lower grille slats to match the tlf, we realized we would have e to make it crooked to match, so we stopped making flawed replicas and started over from scratch. Our upper matches our lower, and we offer everything from color matching, real carbon fiber wraps to hydrodipping. Here is our new mold w one of the new grilles laid up. (you're looking at the rear) Also, the rear of ours is flat and angled slightly which gives it a wider open more aggressive feel. Install pics coming soon.

                                                                                                                                                                                              I want some feedback though on those of you with lowering springs on your 2Gs.

                                                                                                                                                                                              Steeda, Eibach, and H&R all make springs. I don't know which would be the best bang for your buck.

                                                                                                                                                                                              I'm really just looking to eliminate the wheel gap. I don't want to be too low because I live in an area where I scrape from time to time at stock height.

                                                                                                                                                                                              My wheels are also pretty wide, and they sit flush with the body so I feel if I go too low I'm definitely going to have to roll the fenders which I'd preferably not have to do.

                                                                                                                                                                                              What do all you folks run?

Same with the ambient lighting only and then some. Doesn't turn on on its own but if i go into its settings and adjust brightness they all turn on. Another note if i dont go through said steps to turn ambients on the ones in the doors will turn on if whatever door has been opened is closed. Any ideas? ** 2014 titanium **
