    Adding factory tow hitch

    Thanks for the info. I have been reading the post on this subject, but was curious if anyone has taken on the task of doing a factory install and all the cost involved. I did some research on factory parts and for the hitch and harness alone approached $500. It would be for the 2013 and not the 2016, which is mostly a "Hanger Queen". Jargon we used in the military when we had our aircraft sitting in the hanger for long periods of time.
  3. Good evening all, I have a 2016 Sport, but when I optioned it out, Ford did not offer a tow package for the Sport. I also have a 2013 Edge SEL AWD, which at the time, a tow option was offered. I would like to install a factory tow hitch and wiring harness. What I would like to know is, has anyone in this forum done a factory tow hitch install? I’m thinking, and I hope I am right is, there should be attaching holes already punched into the rear sub frame to attach a tow hitch and the wiring harness ready to accept a plug in trailer harness. Also, is there a factory trailer tow module needed?

    Cup holder lighting

    Good evening all, I don’t drive my 2016 Sport much, but I recently noticed my cup holder lighting doesn’t light up while driving at night. It does come on when entering/ exiting my vehicle though. Is there something I programmed and turned it off or does it not light up while driving? If this is the case, it’s a stupid idea. Unless it has something to do with the reflection off the windscreen at night. My 2010 Mercury Mariner stays lit after dark. Has anyone else experienced or noticed this quirk?

    Mustang SUV

    It seems like this body style is all the rage these days. BMW and Mercedes have been flaunting this design for a few years. I think Ford watched these two to see how successful their sales figures would be before diving in. Ford needs to drop a Coyote motor in it as an option.

    Sunroof glass replaced....finally.

    As far as I know, yes it is the factory tint and I will take into consideration on applying a film for added measure, thanks.

    Factory vehicle cover

    Not sure if you received my reply. Yes I still have the cover. I don’t read my forms on a regular basis. If you are still interested text to 443-910-2635, thanks.
  8. Hi, is the car cover still available?

      Yes the cover is still available. Sorry not getting back sooner, but I don’t always check all forums.

    2016 Edge sport 2.7l oil leak

    Good day all, I have a 2016 Sport with 19,000 miles on the odometer. After noticing a lot of 2.7 EcoBoost owners complaining of oil leaks from this motor, I starting keeping an eye on my garage floor. Low and behold, the oil spots are now showing up there. I took it to my dealer to have a service done and ask the service advisor if he was aware of the problem with the 2.7, and he said " not to his knowledge". Of course now it is out of warranty. If I have to, I will be on Ford like an "Alabama wood tick" and pester them until this is resolved. They know they have a problem, so what is a satisfactory permanent fix. If the plastic pan is the issue, replace it with an aluminum one, not steel. Instead of having the oil pan removed several times, I will wait it out. "Slayer" doesn't get ridden that often anyway.

    Sunroof glass replaced....finally.

    Thanks for the info on tempered vs laminate. I’m thinking Ford never incorporated the film coating due to cost, but I’m grateful for having the “hanger queen” back on the road. BTW the Nautilus is on my wish list. Great looking vehicle!

    Factory vehicle cover

    Evening all, I have a like new factory vehicle cover by Covercraft, which I ordered when I optioned out my 2016 Edge Sport. Used only to cover my Sport while it sat in my climate controlled garage for a period of time. Never used outside and was eventually folded and put away in its bag. This is the one Ford markets and it is very well made and padded for all season protection. As I said, like new condition. Paid well over $200. Asking $150 or OBO.

    Front bra for 2011>2014 Edge

    Evening all, It’s been some time since I listed this item and never reposted it at a later date. I have a front bra that will fit model years 2011>2014 Edge. Made by Colgan, a premier maker of vehicle bras. Not one of those cheap Chinese knock offs. Used only twice to protect my 2013 Edge while on vacation, cleaned and packed away in the original box. A new one will set you back about $165, but will let it move for $75+SH. If you have one of these model year Edges and want to protect the front from stone chips, this is a great bargain. I have a 2016 Edge Sport and no longer need it.

    2016 Ford Edge Sport 21" Rims & Tires (4)

    That is a really great price, considering the price of a factory OEM wheel only lists for $900 to $1100 each, from Ford.

    From one veteran to another...

    From one veteran to another, been there done that. When I see a service member in a restaurant line I will offer to purchase their meal and thank them for their continued service. My career started as a tanker went to jump school, became Infantry became an Army Ranger. Got out for eight years, couldn’t stand civilian life. Came back to Aviation, went to school for helicopter maintenance, worked my way into an AeroScout slot where I learned to fly scout helicopters, as a scout. Then, became an Army medic, worked my way into flight medic school then finally retiring with 26 satisfying years of service to my country. Also, did two tours in Kuwait, as a contractor supporting OIF 2007 and 2008.

    Sunroof glass replaced....finally.

    Good evening all, I took the “hanger queen” into my local Ford dealership to have the cracked sunroof replaced. I held out as long as I could for Ford to find a laminate one like the one it was built with. I checked with Carlex aka Carlite and Ford asking why they made the decision to replace laminate glass with the tempered glass. The answer from Carlite was Ford made it stronger, lighter and “cheaper”. Everything I know about tempered glass, is it shatters into thousands of pieces. I don’t know about you, but I’m not a fan of getting shower of glass on my head. When a leading consumer magazine did an article on unexplained panoramic sunroof explosions, which the Ford Edge was included, they also said laminate was a safer option. I checked the new Edge ST and it also has been replaced with a tempered glass made by Pilkington with a Ford logo. I brought the sunroof home with me in hopes someone will start a class action lawsuit started to make Ford install laminate overhead for panoramic sunroof applications. Now , at least, I can take her for a bath without the fear of a leak, hopefully. And get a coat of ceramic sealer.
