  1. So the right passenger side trim molding piece next to the vista roof of my 2008 Edge Limited is rusted and bubbling up. I want to replace it and I am a pretty handy guy (as can be seen by many mods I have done around here years ago). The part to replace is 7T4Z-7851746-A BUT what I am trying to find out is if it is just adhesive backed like some of the other molding so I can heat gun it off? Or is it something more elaborate like going through the headliner or bolts or clips. Anyone have any insight into how this piece is attached and the level of difficulty in replacing it myself?

    Having not done it myself mind you, as I am not a torrent user, I do know for a fact it is possible.

    can you expand on this? where did you get, how much, install difficulty? oh.. and clean up that dust
  4. nice necropost anyway, I have had the eBay switchblade key for my '08 for over a year now IIRC. Works awesome. Can control my trunk (open/close), doors, emergency alert horn. Search eBay, they are awesome.
  5. if you dot have the Edge specific relay harness, I highly suggest you get it. I was one of the first RS sold HID adopters here. An Edge specific harness did not exist back then. I never had any issues. 2 years later, my SJB kooked out on me. The power flow issue started to make it self known later, but since I never had issues, I blew it off. Now I have the relay harness.

    Best Nav unit with camera

    I think the better question is "what is the best camera". the camera - CCD versus CMOS - Night vision, Water proof, Minimum Illumination, size, mounting options.. I think all navi capable unit will give you plenty of quality at the head unit you want. The real weak link is the camera. I vouch for the one I used in my backup camera thread.. CCD, water proof, tiny, small footprint, swivel mounting options, etc. etc

  10. as was said, but I think is crucial to across, get the relay harness he sells as well that is Edge specific if it did not come with it. I know some of his deals come with it but you do not mention it. the whole system is plug and play. just be sure to plug and play with the harness. I don't know about that antiflicker device. I do not have that and have no issues. seems to me the relay harness would address this by smoothing out the power flow. so I think "need" is debatable there.

    alarm system

    and from experience, I can tell you that when you put in a key that is not chipped to your car, you can turn the power on, but no turn over. Just FYI.
