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

RIP Freestyle A local salvage place came and picked it up today. The engine subframe was out but we still bolted the wheels on with only the struts for support. But without any engine weight we could move it around and they could pull it onto the flatbed. By the time they got it on one of the front ...

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

Yes... I remember. I finally go the driveshaft off and the Haldex. Can you remind me exactly what information you need me to check/test? I never saw this vehicle run but the previous owner's report was there were no problems with the drivetrain other than the CVT so it should be OK. Currently it's o...

Re: 2007 Rear wiper motor connector pinout

I hope this helps. Screenshots were difficult using the Ford service DVD.

I have the wiper motor and harnesses from a 2005 if you need anything

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

I’m closing in on the end of this project. It’s time to get rid of it so I’m starting to put things back together enough to take it to the salvage yard. If anyone wants it then it’s free! With title. I’m keeping small parts to use for my ‘07 but I’d love to give it to someone who needs body or inter...

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

I got the driveshaft out. However it was stuck To the active on demand coupling. So I just remove the four bolts that held the a AOD to the differential and took it off. Then separated it from the driveshaft. Two of the ball bearings came out of the driveshaft when separated. I assume this is not no...

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

Progress is getting slow. I quickly hooked up the harness to the engine to see if I could turn the starter using the ignition key. The instrument cluster didn’t light so I need to start tracing wires. I’m almost positive I missed a ground or two. I left the ignition key in the dash for now. I have l...

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

I lifted it using the exhaust manifold as lifting points. It was a little tricky with only two points as the engine wanted to rock but it wasn’t too hard to get the engine mount studs on to the sub frame. Here it is mostly ready to start. I need to hook up the grounds and starter circuit. You can se...

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

I drilled out the exhaust stud and wiped out several drillbits in the process. But this is a learning experience so that’s OK. I put the engine back on the sub frame. With intentions of only trying to start the engine I bolted on the torque converter cover a.k.a. bell housing. This will allow me to ...

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

Time to tackle rust. One of the studs on the catalytic converter had to be cut to get it off. So while the engine is out I thought this would be a good time to try to get that out. I first tried with the exhaust manifold on the engine with no luck. So risking more problems I decided to take the exha...

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

It’s so much easier without the engine and transmission! I wanted to take out the sub frame to see how I could coordinate using two jacks and a furniture dolly. If I could figure out the right sequence then it’ll will be much easier once I try it with the engine and CVT. I know that a line in it wit...

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

Exhaust is out. One of the fasteners was rusted and there was almost no way I could get it out without serious work. So I decided to take the entire exhaust out as a unit (I did get the front catalytic converter separated before pulling it all out from under the car) The cats look clean inside but I...

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

I soaked the mirror spring clip with WD40 and it finally moved using pliers so I could remove the metal piece normally stuck to the windshield. I had to be careful because the piece of glass still attached to a sharp so when you slip trying to pry the metal piece out would not of ended well. Now on ...

Re: Re-sale value.

I am no expert but try to keep an eye on ones as they come up for sale. Low miles is nice but it'll be 14 years old and a platform that isn't highly regarded due to CVT issues. Aftermarket parts don't bring much value. 1 year old tires could be 2000 or 20000 miles. Without the sound system, I'd say ...

Re: Sub install question.

Here's a pic of the box. I can provide dimensions or even the box if you want it. It'll probably get scrapped with the car.
