i don't think this would be possible, considering the differences in the positions of the CV Joints on the Right side of the trans of each type......plus the right-side CV Joints themselves appear to have different part numbers (AWD vs FWD).

see mike poland's pictures in his AWD CVT swap.....see the difference in the CV Joints.....he was mistakenly sent an FWD joint and didn't fit his AWD, it delayed his project and he had to re-order the right one (if i still remember well).

my thoughts though.
i wonder who "Voodoo Bob of the Dead Poets Society" is hounding now.....:mrgreen:

New to the forum. But I do have a question and this was the closest topic match. I seem to have some conflicting information. I bought (against better judgement) an 05 AWD from an auction and it should be delivered tomorrow. What I wanted to know is the difference between the AWD and fwd transmission and if I could take a transmission from an wrecked fwd and put it into my AWD. I'm just gathering information under the assumption the transmission took a dump on the previous owner. Also, does anyone have an service interval for the filter and fluids a required by Ford?

Welcome, Fluid & filter at 60K and every 60K there after.
