Re: Driver side mirror returns to default position ...

Is yours a Limited? It might have a memory setting that is tied to your key fob. We had an Expedition once that had memory seats, and the mirrors were in on that gig. When I used my key fob, it would set the seats and mirrors to my setting, and then it would go back to my wife's setting when she use...

Re: Rattling noise ~2krpm, could it be fuel pump?

Even if it was the fuel pump, it would not be speed (engine or road) dependent. The fuel pump runs the same speed all the time.

Re: Rebuilt CVT - "CHECK TRANSMISSION" - What did I mess up?

I see you resolved your earlier issue via the valve body/Mechatronics unit. I am thinking there are still issues there, but this is beyond my experience.

Re: Swap 500 6 sp into Freestyle possible.

Did a bunch of research for trying the fusion transmission but way to many differences with the spline numbers for the axles and lengths. Picked up a 06 Five Hundred Limited with the fwd 6 speed and will be starting my swap shortly. Watch out for the traction control vs no traction control issue th...

Re: Engin revs and tries to lunges when applying the breaks

Agree with mmsstar, I have done this myself. Otherwise, you would need to clean your TB.

Re: replace headlight assy

Scotty17 is correct, you have to remove the front bumper cover, but after that, it's very easy. There are 2 bolts on top and then there are 2 on the bottom that are hidden by the bumper cover. If you remove those 4, it slides right out. When I did mine, I was repairing a deer strike, so I had to rep...

6-speed swap is the way to go IMO.

Re: How to replace a clockspring.

The hardest part of the job is releasing the air bag from the wheel. It has a big metal hoop-type clip you have to depress. Actually getting it to catch and hold on reassembly is harder than getting it to release. You really need a service manual to consult before you do this.

Re: 2007 Ford freestyle awd transmission swap

If you can, get the ECU and the ABS module (only the electrical part, no need to open the hydraulic lines) from the donor and put them on your car. That is much easier than finding someone to flash your trans controller.

Re: 2007 Ford freestyle awd transmission swap

The trans will work without it, but your ABS and TC will not work unless the trans, ECU and ABS module all agree on VIN.

Re: 200000 miles

My wife's FS went 235K before we sold it. Mine is at 185K but I did the 6-speed swap so maybe it won't count when I get there.

Re: Swap 500 6 sp into Freestyle possible.

Anyone ever try the Aisin AWF-21 6speed awd trans from a Fusion? I have access to one of these right now and my 2006 AWD freestyle is dying for the second time since I have owed it. I love the car just hate the CVT. Be a pioneer! If you can successfully put an AWD 6-speed in a Freestyle, you will b...

Re: Freestyle CVT Repair In Progress

I am no help, I just yanked mine out and put in a 6-speed. Mine did not have the helicopter noise, it just moaned loudly like a bad PS pump. However, it still worked perfectly. I took it apart looking for the source of the noise but to no avail. I can only figure it was the TC. Good luck on your rep...
