Re: Strange Feeling - Driver's Side Footrest

No. Very strange. As I mentioned earlier, it does not happen on a consistent basis...I guess I need to continue to monitor.

Re: Strange Feeling - Driver's Side Footrest

[quote="andysinnh"]So just to be clear - you're talking about the so-called "dead pedal" area to the left of the brake, where you rest your foot? And you're saying is that you can feel the floorboard pulse up and down as you drive in the rain? If so, there are likely two senarios - one is that there...

Re: Strange Feeling - Driver's Side Footrest

I will definately give it a try, but I strongly believe it is not the ABS brakes. I know what they feel like. To me the larger issue is why does it push up the carpet on the inside of the car? This clearly shouldn't happen.

Re: Strange Feeling - Driver's Side Footrest

I thought of traction control or ABS, but it only seems to be happening at low speeds and there doesn't appear to be alny slippage. Regardless of what it is, I don't think I shouild be feeling it literally trying to push through the carpet by my left foot. Do you know if any pumps are located there?...

Strange Feeling - Driver's Side Footrest

I have 2008 TX AWD. The other day my wife was driving it (in the rain) and she said that she felt a "pulsing feeling" under her left foot when it was on the foot rest. I could't replicate the problem, until this past Saturday. Again, it was raining out and the feeling seems to derive from whatever i...

Synch System

I recently picked up my 2008 X Limited w/Synch. Does anyone know if there is a way to control the AM/FM/Sat radio via the wheel mounted controls or are they solely dedicated to the Synch System now.

Thanks,

Although Thule lists two systems in their rack finder, neither system will fit. The problem is that the X's roof rack is flush against the roofline with the exception of approximately two feet at the front of the rack. The rack is slotted, so it appears that there may be a way to fit a "base" into t...

Taurus X - Cross Bars

Ultimate X - I looked at Thule, Yakima and most of the other major brands and unfortunately, no one has anything yet. Any other thoughts?

X - Roof Rack Cross Bars

Does anyone know of aftermarket cross bars that can be fixed to the factory roof rack? I have looked at several sites and can't seem to find anything. I tried Ford parts and they were not very helpful. The roofr ack is not very useful without these? Any thoughts would be appreicated. Thanks, David
