  1. Why is it that you can't find rear splash guards for the 2007 Ford Edge? Is it because the molded rear bumper has a 'built in' guard? Does anyone know of any good aftermarket additions that could be used?

    2008 edge

    I've had to replace the blower motor on my 2007 Ford Edge twice for an annoying hum/rattle. It's a fairly inexpensive fix for a do-it-yourself-er. http://www.amazon.com/TYC-700203-Lincoln-Replacement-Assembly/dp/B0041TGN2K/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1391104491&sr=8-3&keywords=ford+edge+blower+motor
  3. Hi all - I have a 2007 Ford Edge SEL AWD. Took it for a recent oil change at Jiffy Lube, and they indicated to me that the front differential was empty and/or barely registering. Found it odd that they told me they 'stuck just about everything they could down the hole to get it to register' but didn't have any luck. They filled the front differential and indicated such on the invoice. I admit that I've never had anyone tell me anything about differentials before, so I was a little shocked to hear it now. There have been no leaks in the garage, no leaks in my assigned parking space at work - nothing. Drive off, and not even within 30 minutes, I start smelling burning oil. I get home (45 minute drive) pull in the garage, only to crawl under and see the entire underside of my car covered in splashed oil. I call my Ford dealer, and when I explain I just had my car serviced, he asks 'Jiffy Lube?' - I take my car in for service and the service department tells me that the front differential isn't really a servicable part, and Jiffy Lube shouldn't have filled anything. They tell me that Jiffy Lube techinicians blew the seals (Part No. 8T4Z 7275 CD : KIT - SEAL) and that the oil I was seeing as being splashed under the car was actually coming from the leak and some overflow vent. I haven't noticed a leak since the factory warranty-covered repair - but am wondering - has anyone else had this happen?? Jason
  4. Haha - yea, the kid did look 16.....I never quite understood it either - because it NEVER looks good when the entire crew is huddled in front of your car with a manual..... I think I'm done with Spiffy Lube.....I'll take my Ford vehicles to Ford certified technicians at a dealer...... Valuable lesson learned...... Thanks for sharing your story!!!!
