  1. Most of the inner works are available, including the axle bering carrier, shaft repair sleeve, bearing & hub assembly repair kit, axle bearing carrier, axle assembly, axle shafts & nuts. So what exactly broke that can't be fixed?

    Cargo area seat back protection

    If it were me, I'd consider these as well as adding a "webbed" barrier to prevent the poopies from being thrown forward. https://www.carmelocarmats.com/product/black-boot-liner/?utm_source=Google Shopping&utm_campaign=USA GS FEED&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=417&aelia_cs_currency=USD&gclid=CjwKCAiAv_KMBhAzEiwAs-rX1K2ITn5VQ5ZPML1rQi77N-RZ5xNBHyCby1GME2lP3O9r5Xw6ezOHiRoCzzcQAvD_BwE
  3. There is a used one offered on Ebay (think this is the right one). $300 sounds like a good price considering that the original price was over a grand. https://www.ebay.com/itm/2011-Ford-Edge-REAR-AXLE-DIFFERENTIAL-AWD-/275034357253?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0
  4. Consider that it may be related to your aftermarket warranty. They (the warranter) may be specifying the use of cheaper aftermarket parts when available. But if not, it may be that the Axle manufacturer can only produce rear ends in a limited amount (getting people is a huge problem in rejoining the economy). And this limited amount is directed to new production. This is a tough economy. Far too many young people lost their work ethic and want to sit at home and get paid for it. Not just the states (although we seem to be blessed with more than minimal amount of slackers). China also has lost trained employees; especially dock workers and ship's personnel. Their only capable of fielding a percentage of ships that were sea borne before the pandemic. And the docks here in the US and not exempt. But our real problems relate to truck drivers. Many have moved on and are not driving anymore. (Its notable that new replacment drivers in trucking schools are women!) I still work with many of my old clients (clients before I retired). One builder told me that their supplier cannot get (bath fan) vent duct. Although the duct is manufactured here in the US, the plastic beads (used for moulding) and the steel wire are on ships, choked off Long Beach harbor. Been there for weeks. So the can't make any more duct until the ship can dock, unload and transport to the plant. So why can't they use any plastic beads and steel wire; you reasonably may ask? Because the finished duct is UL Listed and in a listing, all parts must be inspected as part of the listing. In short, ONLY that wire, and ONLY that plastic beads can be used. (Changing suppliers takes weeks of testing, investigation, inspections at thd facility and $$$.) So they are changing suppliers. And the new product is not under a contract and nearly double in price. And that's just one item among thousands that go into a new home. You may be better off getting g a good used rear end from a wrecking yard and going that route.

    Cargo area seat back protection

    Protection from dog or kids? Never seen anything made from heavy rubber, I used the standard kid protector and it worked ok. (Grandson liked to kick the back of the passenger seat.)

    Coolant confusion

    Your car came with coolant specification WSS-M97B55-A. Any coolant which meets this specification - on the bottle label - will work. I believe that Zerex Asian meets this specification. BTW, have you called your local Ford dealer to see if they carry the Dark Green?

    This is interesting...

    Man after my own heart. Besides, they don't have the Lincoln emblem so its a mute point for me.

    No Start and P2610

    Test your charging system.
  10. I'd be concerned as to where the trash in the fan came from. The air flow is taken from the underside of the cowling in the engine compartment, through a filter (of sorts) through the cabin air filter and into the fan. So where's the junk coming from. Wouldn't take much junk to stop a fan. From your description, I'd guess the fan rotor is rubbing on the fan shroud. After a while it frees enough to spin. Pull the fan again and make certain the fan rotor clears the housing. If not, try pull it up a little. The other possibility is the fan itself is seizing in the fan bearings. Try a little oil in the bearings (worked for me, two years now).

    2022 Edge timetable

    Local dealer told me the chips are going to F150's and Mustangs. Ford contracted with Microsoft and Intel for chips, but takes months to produce a chip (think he said 7-8 weeks). Taiwan still behind.

    PTU fluid change issues..

    For those in locations where the dealers don't/won't change the PTU fluid, try a location transmission shop. Just tell them you want Motorcraft fluid and you'll buy and bring as most don't stock. At least they have to equipment to get it up on hoist and pump it out.

    Hood Latch

    Believe this is the link @1004ron meant for you to read. Basically you go in from the grill with a large screwdriver.

    20" chrome rims for 2011 Edge SEL?

    OEM comes to mind. Had to replace one wheel for my 09 MKX. Dealer quoted $700 something, haggled and got it for $300 something, just over dealer price. Making a sale at little profit is always better that no sale at no profit.

    Front seats,

    Glad this worked out for you. Any problems with the seat controls? (Passenger control are on right. In drivers position they should be next to consul).

    Struts and shock upgrade 2021 ST

    You said you're looking at the B8. Are you installing new springs? (B6 use the OEM springs, B8 are for use with lowered suspension). Either will cause a harsher ride. According to Summit Racing, the Bilstein B6 p/n is 24-252126, and the Bilstein B8 p/n is 24-252157. (But you'll need new springs.) That's fir a 2019 Ford Fusion, no brakedown for sport or ST. Could give them a call at 800-230-3030 (8 am - midnight est) and ask. https://www.summitracing.com/search/brand/bilstein/part-type/shocks-and-struts/year/2019/make/ford/model/fusion

    Whinning noise when letting off gas around 40 MPH

    WWWPerfA_ZN0W mentioned wheel bearings. One way to test this is to decelerate from 40 and swerve from side to side. This unloads the bearing on the side opposite the swerve and may notice the whine get louder of softer.
  18. Are you thinking of the bracket at the bottom of the strut? That part is permanently connected to the strut. The strut is bolted through this connection to the steering knucke. If its broken, you'll need to replace the strut. (In pairs). There are dozens of aftermarket struts available. Most will give you a much harsher ride. If you intend to keep the car, I'd recommend Motorcraft. Cost a little more be dependable quality. If its the actual steering knuckle ($65) here: https://www.partsgeek.com/catalog/2007/ford/edge/driveshaft_-ar-_axle/suspension_knuckle.html?rp=steering_knuckle

    Upside Down Backup Camera

    Genius. If the image is upside down, turn the camera upside down, turning the image right side up. I can see a TSB in the making .....

    Standard or Premium petrol for your ST?

    Scotty's opinion. Consumer Reports ChrisFix Dyno testing by Shell oil company (~4% higher cylinder pressure due to ignition timing). Graphs, explanations. Crypto (reg vs prem with tune) Oh, oh, wife yelling. Gotta take the trash out. Enjoy the videos.

    Standard or Premium petrol for your ST?

    Ummm, I would have thought that the Canadian Car and Truck Institute Laboratory would have been ably to run a simple dynamic test. Especially when the their representative had 20 years experience. Can't trust anybody anymore.
  22. Just curious, did you buy them for practical (smoking, etc.) or aesthetic reasons? Do you like them?

    Standard or Premium petrol for your ST?

    There are dozens of YouTube videos discussing the comparison of regular vs. premium. This video is about average, the test the same car in a major, Canadian testing laboratory changing only the gas used. As expected, the milage is the same (compensated by the PCM) and shows premium has slightly higher pollutants (slightly higher amount of unburnt hydrocarbons). Premium really only makes sense in very hot, dry areas (desert where the air isn't very dense) or towing heavy loads. Otherwise it's just an extra $10 per fillup down the drain.

    Whinning noise when letting off gas around 40 MPH

    When they replaced the rear end, did they replace all of it or reuse parts, such as bearings, etc.?
