Re: Storage compartment top middle of dash

I'm doing this partially from memory so I hope I have this right - you do not need to open the door on that compartment to remove the entire thing. You just grab the bezel below it (with the a/c vents and radio in it) and pull it toward you which will reveal two 8mm screws that you remove. Then you ...

Re: Disassembly diary... '05 Limited Anyone need anything?

Re: Start engine (while in the car) without transmission?

You won't be able to do that as the starter mounts to the transmission bell housing.

Re: Some insights on replacing the CVT transmission

I did not move my ABS stuff at all, I just moved the master cylinder as you see it is attached by flex lines. Do you have water pump and water pump mount removed?

Re: Some insights on replacing the CVT transmission

Thanks I’ve seen your post and read it many times but see that it makes no mention of the PTU.
That's because my FS is not AWD.

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

It doesn't matter where the key is. Have you tried to program button #2? Perhaps #1 is on the fritz?

Re: Some insights on replacing the CVT transmission

If you will go to page 7 of this thread, I list out the things that need to come out of the FS to pull the trans out the top:

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

Have you reprogrammed the "1" button on the door to your preferred settings? You have to do that first, and then the fob you program into memory first will be assigned to button #1, and the second fob you program will be assigned to button #2. The fob does not know the seat/mirror settings, the seat...

Re: How to turn off interior lights w/lift gate open at drive in

However, I figured it out!! You have to trick your car into thinking the hatch is closed. You do this by pushing the mechanism in the door that latches up until you hear two clicks. familycircus' instructions say to do that above, which was posted in 2010. PRO TIP: When I do this, I always seem to ...

Re: MY AC went off when I hit a bump

This forum is for 2005-2007 Ford FreeSTYLE, not Freestar.
