Re: Snow Tires

Nokian WRG2 23560R18's Skip the snow tires and run these year-round. Unbelieveable winter grip. They'll power you through snow, mud, standing water and side-hill fields with slippery field grass, too. I've gotten 45k+ for each set, too! They look great and also have that triangular mountain symbol ...

If you re-read the thread you'll see that this does not apply to the T-Rex.

Re: P2135 Throttle position sensor OBD II code

No, but it sounds like a problem the dealer caused with the previous "repair." Hope you're not paying them to fix their mistake.

Seat heaters, if your SEL has them. They will break soon if they haven't already.

Re: Check Engine Light

First, you have posted this in the wrong forum. Just because the check engine light appears on the dashboard and the dashboard is in the interior of the car, that doesn't make this an interior issue. You will likely get more responses if you post this in the engine/transmission forum. Second, to rea...

Re: Lost plug--how can I get replacement?

My local hardware store has bins of various size rubber plugs or blind grommets. However, I can't believe that your Ford dealer parts counter can't find it. That's pretty poor service.

Re: Wet Passenger floor

When you put the grommet back in, did there seem to be any tension on the orange cable that might be pulling on the grommet? If so, perhaps you can create some slack in the cable. Otherwise, you may want to use some silicone or other adhesive on the edges of the grommet to ensure that it doesn't com...

Why would that be odd? Our 08 Limited doesn't have Sync. It wasn't standard and I'm sure there were plenty of people who didn't order it.

Re: Steering wheel controls

pwschuh - why do you call it a CUV? Car utility vehicle or Crossover utility vehicle? I know it's built on a car chassis but, to me, it looks like an SUV. I have noticed some of the reviews mention it looks like a cross between an SUV and a station wagon. The car snob in me just can't stand the tho...

Even though discontinued, the model is new enough that parts are still readily available.

Re: Dome Light

It should just pry off. Get something stiff and wide (large flat-bladed screwdriver as a last resort) and gently pry up at the edge.
