Re: New to me -- 2007 Freestyle Limited FWD w/ 80,000 miles

Motorcraft CVT fluid isn't red like normal ATF so pull the dip stick and see what color it is. When I changed ghe filters in mine the fluid is almost clear on the dipstick.

Do a search on the forums here there are detailed instructions for changing the high preassure filter.

Clothes Hanger

When making a trip recently in our Freestyle it would have been nice to have a place to hang some shirts and blouses so they didn't get wrinkled folded in the suitcase. There are hooks on each side under the rear grab handle but it buts the hanging items to close to the back of the front seat. Bough...

Keypad code

The wife's F's had a keypad on the left B pilar. Have no clue what the code is so it of much use. Sure could come in Andy if you locked your keys in the car. According to the manual the factory code is on the computer which is located under the dash near the steering wheel. Tried looking with a mirr...

Filter Condition

Change the trans filters today both the pan and high pressure. When I took out the high pressure filter it was black as was the fluid. This being the 1st time that I have done this not sure what it should look like after 60,000 miles. http://gramps50.smugmug.com/06-Freestyle-Silver/i-qs6PPb6/0/M/201...

Re: Need a new AC Compressor

My wife's FS does the samething, I bought the scroll valve but haven't had a chance to install it as the system needs to be evacuated, replace scroll valve, vacumn the system and refill with freon.

Re: New owner

My disk player skips on some songs, I know it's not the mp3 file as they play fine on the phone and other devices. My guess it that it's the CD's or they are getting scratched on the way in to the changer. Haven't taken any out and looked. I copied a CD and it did the same thing, seems to be at the...

Rear seat removal

I don't need the 3rd row seat in my FS so I was thinking of removing it to gain a storage area in the well that the seat folds into. I was thinking of then building a cover for the well, thus having a flat floor in the rear and a storage well.

Pictures would be helpful too.

Thanks

I thought that is what you stated in an earlier post but as I continued to read it seemed you were the only one who knew it was fixed.

Re: Power Seat

I'd check under the seat almost seems like something is under there keeping the one side from moving.
