Rear Window Defroster Delay In Turning On

05 AWD SEL

As anyone noticed that when you first start the Freestyle the Rear Window Defroster as Delay
in turning on, I needed to drive for about 20mins this morning before the ( Push Button) light on the defroster button' would turn on.

Any idea why this is happening.

Thanks All

Re: What a GEM of a car

2005 AWD SEL I also wonder the failures of CVT how many of these people bought the Freestyle NEW, lets face it it when it comes to a transmission lasting a lot depends also on you driving style. The Freestyle is not a sports car and it you drive it like that you will KILL your transmission plain and...

Re: Inner Rear Well Liner Replacement

Thanks for the update, going to head over to my local body shop to see what
they will charge to re-undercoat also notice the other side starting to fall apart as
well.

Will see if they can use the rubberized type which holds up better.

Inner Rear Well Liner Replacement

2005 AWD SEL

I notice the other day that the rear drivers side inner wheel well
liner is falling apart, does anyone know the best way to fix this.

Is there a liner replacement available or is this just undercoating that FORD used.

Thanks

Re: 2007 Freestyle Radiator Fan Mystery

So I assume that if its not overheating the fan is working.....my temp is in the middle range after it
warms up. I did a new water pump and changed the thermostat last year.

Thanks

Re: Rear wiper arm repair

When you turn on the rear wiper does the post turn, if so the wiper arm might be stripped might need to replace it.

Re: Spark Plug Life

05 SEL AWD

My Freestyle has 117,000 was thinking about also doing plugs and coils replacement after getting a quote of 850.00 ( motorcraft parts) I decided not to do it.

I did a throttle and mass air senor cleaning instead seems to have better pickup now.

Re: Warm a/c while driving in the city [Solved]

I clean the AC coil which helps a lot I do this ever spring make a big difference on the AC temp.
