  1. Couple days late on this:
  2. UPDATE: Bought three switchblade keys off EBay and got all three to work with home programming.
  3. $5 in You-Pull-It Caddy horns, a relay and some wiring: Mounted inside the cover of the driver side wheel well. Lincolns are another good source for horns. Just a two horn set-up. I think stock is 4 horns with different tones. I went with a high and low that sounded good.
  4. Changed the oil. Mobile 1. Added this stuff: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07H9K62X3/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Can't say I paid attention before, but I think it sounded a tad quieter after start up. Could be the money filter. Why? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8ZKMCfAue4 EDIT ADD: Also got three switchblade keys for it off of EBay. All of them programmed in on the first try with no problems. https://www.ebay.com/itm/FLIP-KEY-REMOTE-FOR-FORD-F150-F250-EDGE-40BIT-TRANSPONDER-CHIP-KEYLESS-ENTRY/130687018678?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  5. Any suggestions as to slightly over powered lift gate arms? Don't want to break my jaw when I unsnap the gate, but something that definitely has some oomph.

    Inherited '08 Edge and $1100 repair bill!

    As long as everything is being replaced, it would be a good idea to have the brain box checked. Bad box can make for bad coils and bad coils can make for a bad box. https://circuitboardmedics.com/2007-2010-ford-edge-pcm-ecm-repair/
  7. All four rotors and brakes. For those playing at home: Fronts: https://www.autozone.com/brakes-and-traction-control/brake-rotor/duralast-gold-brake-rotor/539222_195255_2708 https://www.autozone.com/brakes-and-traction-control/brake-pads/duralast-gold-brake-pads/939349_232493_3773 Same version for rears. Front pad box had two extra little clips. Not sure where they went. Didn't use them. Started at noon and finished at 6. Re-learning curves are a bitch. Installed the rears and went around the block. Could feel a grinding sensation. Installed the front and had same grinding feel in the front. Seemed to settle down a tad by the time I got home. Will make a pizza run tonight, so I'm hoping it's a wearing in thing. No other horrendous noises. Parking brake is a little low. For added fun, after I recessed the calipers, I put everything back in place and shot everything with black 2000 degree paint. I had already done the hats on the rotors (taped at the bottom of the hat and used the factory plastic as a blocking agent). Old hats were all faded and rusty. Calipers look good for now. Time will tell.
  8. Sorry for the delay, but I hate the site's new layout and rarely come here any more. One looks like for an '08 and one for a '12: https://parts.lakelandford.com/p/Ford__/Housing-TRANSMISSION-mount/52086753/8T4Z6068B.html https://parts.lakelandford.com/p/Ford__Edge/Housing-Torque-arm-TRANSMISSION-mount/51620415/DT4Z6068A.html Best thing to do is match up what you got with what's in the pic.
  9. Passenger airbag replaced.
  10. Some time ago, but finally got the pics off my phone. Stopped to get breakfast. When I came out, I noticed all sorts of rust and bubbling along the rear fender well. I don't keep the cleanest car in the world, but when the hell did this happen??? That's when I paid a little more attention to my surroundings: I wonder if the other '07 noticed what they did (I'm in the back).
  11. Maybe. I think it looks kinda like a torch. Has two lines coming off it. It has an electrical plug in that comes in from the main three brain box plugs. To the left of the brake fluid reservoir. In most Edge engine bay pics, it is right below the two bolts on the windshield cowling. Right below the right hand bolt: At least I have a name to look up in the factory book. One of the locking clips broke off and I want to try and replace it Thursday when I'm by the dealer.
  12. Finished the valve cover gasket for the second time. First time it got pinched. I think I raked it across the engine support bracket by the firewall. Used a mirror this time to confirm blue gasket across the length. One of the injector clips had broken off, so I goobed some black gasket goo in it's place and stuck it back on. If it does go wonky again, I can at least see it on the passenger side of the intake. Some burning, but I think that was from all the oil that poured out after the pinch. What's the black thing mounted on a post behind the resonator? Has hard vacuum lines coming off it. If anyone needs to do the radiator side valve cover gasket replacement on a '07-'08, let me know. I have extras.
  13. Got the 4 oil seal rings out (slip joint pliers), but don't have a good way of replacing them. Luckily, there is a shop within walking distance and I'll see if they will be willing to press them into place so I don't bugger the whole thing up. Then it will just be a matter of a couple of dabs of goo, and bolting it all back together. Not sure how the wiring is going to hold up over time when I was busting the VC bolt plastic cap-holder things left and right. I'll be happy with no leaks and all the electrical plugs in place at this point.
  14. Found and going with this:
