Re: RSS beepers don't work

Ours stopped working a couple of years ago for no good reason. The module is on the right side pillar near the roof right behind the rear right door. I never fixed ours but here is the info I found - and still didn't fix mine. I also just swapped the stereo and have a backup camera now. Hope this in...

Do any body knows where to buy the tools need for this transmission taking apart?
I be more concerned with the availability of replacement parts [there are none available] than the tools needed. And if you need to buy the tools, you are way beyond your pay scale. :lol:

Thought you said too small? Anyway, sorry I didn't see this sooner. I've replaced both axles on ours. Glad you got it going. 8)

Re: who has the most miles ?

He's right. I've never liked the hard-ass seats in the Freestyle.

Re: Left Rear Caliper issues

What exactly is "overheating"? And what are the symptoms? Do the brakes drag? Is the E-Brake adjusted properly?

That part number is not an enclosure, but the sub amp itself.

Glass lens, about $60 IIRC from Ford. Had to replace one of mine when I bought it [and didn't notice it broken untill after]

Re: Purely theoretical

No. Easy going automatic from manual, not so much the other way around. However, the 3.0 Duratec is one helluva fine engine... 8)

Re: Brake bias is not as advertised

Brakes have always been front main, rear control, nothing surprising. This is why front brakes wear faster than rears do.

Sounds to me like you desperately need new struts all around. Your braking performance will improve 110% guaranteed. Don't touch the brake system itself.

Re: who has the most miles ?

I say that because I bought mine for $8000 out the door w/132,000 [I think, might have been 152?] 8 years ago. I just think you can get a better price.

And yeah, the CVT has been fixed.
That would be the tipping point for me. If the CVT needs any repair, I want nothing to do with it...beyond typical maintenance, fluid change etc...I also have a real problem spending 6 grand for an 11 year old car. But I'm also a cheapskate. ;)
