    If you want to paint it, you have to disassemble it. You can do plastidip without taking it apart, but Plastidip will never come close to the same look. I've since sold this Edge, but the painted grille held up well. I had a bit of lifting on the bottom lip, but that was my fault for not scuffing the chrome better in that area and getting more paint on it. I thought that edge would be covered when it went back on, but it wasn't. You can see it's still shiny in this pic on the left side down low.

    Poor trans shifting theory investigation

    Well, then we have the update prior to the June 2nd update. Still no issues.

    Poor trans shifting theory investigation

    We've had the latest update since March and so far no clunks. Nice job Ford. If Ford would only fix the noisy moonroof/shade instead of saying could not duplicate, we'd be good. My wife is taking someone from their dealer around to hear the noise next time.

    2019 ST - Noise In Rear

    I always thought it was the rear gate "unlocking" after sensing the key, but I guess now that I think about it there is no true lock on the gate like the doors have.

    Replacing Rear Wheel Brgs FWD

    For anyone reading this in the future, I took the plates off the car and used a hydraulic press to push out the old bearing. It took a LOT of pressure but we did not bend the plates.

    Still like my '19 Titanium... BUT...

    I know when people arrive at my house because I can hear V6s and I4s when they pull in the driveway. You can't hear the exhaust, you just "feel" the rumble created of the lack of firing events. Never forget rolling around in a manual trans 1990s Civic with one cylinder out, and 5 people in the car. You could clearly feel each cylinder firing as we took off from a stop on an uphill.
  7. It's fine. A single LCA is capable of handling 100% of the weight of the vehicle, and then some. I mean, you CAN do damage jacking on the wrong control arm at the wrong spot- but assuming he had a clue as to what he was doing, it's not a problem.
  8. It's not a recall because it's not a safely issue. It's a major inconvenience, and a design flaw, but it's not a safety thing. If nobody is getting injured or dying- no recall. As for #3, you could pull the wiper setup and seal up the hole if you are willing to live without the wiper. Find a good body plug and silicone it in. It'd be just like driving a sedan at that point.

    Sunroof shade noise.

    We haven't taken it in yet as we'll need to strip everything out of it first, but let me know if you find anything on yours.

    By short shifting at under 5000 RPMs you are giving up the mechanical advantage of the lower gear before you have to. If it was faster in the quarter to shift sooner, Ford would have had it shift sooner.

    Rubber accordion sliding gasket install

    I don't if you can. All service procedures for the track I've seen start with "remove accordion covers and discard". It may be something that needs to be installed before the roof unit goes in the car. Not sure.
  12. Did you buy this Edge new or used?

    AWD to FWD Conversion

    That'd probably work. I'd still sjtu buy a new PTU and put it in if I was yanking the old one. They aren't that expensive and if you change the fluid they will last. You can wrap the exhaust pipes and/or make better heat shields around the cats to help preserve the seals.

    Sync 3.3 update stuck

    No. If it works for you, don't touch it. If you get a new phone and have issues or something, then update it.
  15. The auto HS / MS CANBUS switching is nice, assuming it works.
