Some folks always ask.  Does a full sized spare fit in the back of the Edge.  My response is can you get a square peg in a round hole?

A video on how to remove the passenger side seat on the Ford Edge MY 2011.   I am sure the drivers side will be forthcoming.

Blueberry's key fob button broke so I ordered a new case and got it working again. 15 dollar repair.

Mac, did you try to glue the disc on the old remote first? It worked for me. What is strange is that your unlock button, seems you use it a lot, why not just pull the door handle & utilize the smart keyless entry?

On my fob, the remote start button failed, and it is the one I press the most (double click to remote start).

You are a funny man assuming it was my remote.  It is my wife's remote to her Edge and WE both will never know why she does not just grab the door handle to unlock the door. LOL   You can ask her though, but I will not. LOL

 

I could not find the missing piece and for 15 buck her remote now looks brand new. It was pretty worn and beat up from being in her purse.

Hedging my bets and bought a new fan assembly for my wife's Edge Blueberry.  She does a lot of idling and since she is nearly 96K miles I figure this saves me a phone call later while I am on the road and not home.  Just replace the fan and hand on to the old one as a back up for LU since LU has 211,000 miles on her fan now.

Blueberry is getting a new set of cooling fans tomorrow. Just making sure it does not have any problems while I am gone on the road.  I will keep the old fans for testing and maybe use in my other Edge if they ever fail.

Cold weather was rather hard on the aging Michelin Latitudes.  Had one go flat and the others were just having issues with holding air. Combination of old rubber and cold temps.   Had a yokohama YK580 installed for now (had it laying around the garage)  Next week the new Michelin Premier LTX's will be delivered and installed.  Then I can test traction in snow vs the blizzaks.  Worn Blizzaks vs New Michelins.  Wonder which will win.

Mounted 4 new Michelin Premier LTX v rated 18' tires on Blueberry. Each tire was the same date code of 4117 which mildly surprised me and plus bonus pretty recently manufactured.   I am hoping to do the snow test on them against the blizzaks and compare  them along with comparing them to the Michelin Latitudes I ran against the blizzaks last winter.

 

I have also purchased 4 brand new chrome clads to repair one wheel that was curbed by my wife.  I will be removing the clad and resetting the new clad using silicone adhesive.   Should be fun.

Blueberry will be driven to Atlanta GA Next weekend and back. 2-3 day trip with quick turn around. This should give this 3.5 Duratec some legs after being a mom bus for the last year and half.  Good to get her out on the road and burn off some carbon.

Blueberry handled the drive round trip in 36 hours without issue.  I really like the adaptive cruise control and accident avoidance system on my wife's Edge.   Engine ran great and all systems were well within spec.  Turned over 100K miles during the trip.

106,000 and the Edge my wife drives (Blueberry) is running great.  Just took a trip from Iowa to Clearwater Fl and back this week.  Not a problem.   I do think I will be replacing the front struts and rear shocks soon as the right front is starting to make a bit of noise.
