  1. I haven't found anything wrong with the back glass on mine… In which area does yours have a defect? Claude.
  2. Yes!…I have the exact same problem on mine ('19 Titanium) in the exact same spot as you're saying (a little left of the rear view mirror on the driver's side) but haven't complained to my dealer about it … yet. I have to admit that it's not that big of a problem to me 'cause it's rather close to the mirror so I'm hesitating to have it replaced and risk the glass guys scratching the paint, or damaging the mouldings, etc… Claude.
  3. After entering my Edge's serial number, I tried entering the "ESN" number but it won't let me enter all the digits…only thew first 6 or 7 digits but not the whole number!… Claude

    Smallest Wheel Size on Ford Edge 2015

    Not sure if 17" wheels will fit on newer Edges ('15-'19) … They did fit on older ones ('06 -'14) I know because my father-in-law has an '07 MKX with 17's on it. Claude.

    Sorry to say but if everything you tried still doesn't work, you should take in to a Ford dealer…not because I doubt about your abilities but rather because sometimes they have special dealer-only diagnostic tools to find more complicated problems... Good luck, Claude.
  6. Unfortunately, being from the province of Quebec, Canada, I never had the chance to meet anyone from this forum… Waaaaa! Claude.

    2020 Edge not Available?

    "oskar27", I see that were both from Quebec province… In which region are you located? Claude.
  9. I don't know if you guys read this thread entitled "You already have a vacum pump to change PTU oil" but I think it's the stupidest thread I've read in a long time. ---> The guy who posted this can't be serious… Do you really think that sending all that old oil full possibly full of metal particles into the engine is a safe thing to do?… Think of all the dirt you'll be sending inside your engine, not counting the damage that can be done to the exhaust system's components (foul the catalytic converter and also the oxygen sensors, etc…) I think that writing dumb posts like that is simply giving members here some truly bad advice! If you don't believe me, ask your Ford dealer about doing this and see what they'll say…

    Did you guys read that ?

    Very likely because what was being said in that post was wrong, misleading and only gave some bad advice simple as that. Claude.
  11. "Chipster", I have a small car cleaning business and here's what I'd do: If the gas was spilled onto a carpeted surface, the best thing to do is definitely to remove the carpet from the vehicle so it can be shampooed with detergent, a good brush and rinced with lots of water from a high pressure washer. You might have to repeat this process 2-3 times. After that, let the carpet to dry outside for a few days so the remaining smell will eventually evaporate. If you want (it's up to you) you can buy some car deodorizer and spray some on the finished job before reinstalling it in the car. As for the car's interior metal so you can wash it a mitt, some dishwasher detergent soap, then rince it and wipe it dry with a shammy and that should take care of it. I know it's a job to do but hey…that's what I would do... Hope this helps, good luck, Claude. P.S: I just read what "Haz" wrote and I'd say the baking soda might work too… maybe worth a try!

    Aftermarket Grille options for 2019

    "Sexy" ?? How so?? Claude.
  13. In my '16 Titanium, there was a little "drawer" to the left of the steering column in which you could store small items but in my new '19, the door is still there (see picture below) but it won't open and there doesn't seem to be any drawer to pull out… There is a door allright but it doesn't seem to be "openable" even if I pull on it. I don't want to pull too hard and risk breaking it off… but my main question is this: Does someone know what's behind this non-removeable door? Claude.
  14. Yeah but will the drawer still fit in there?…especially with that fuse panel? Claude.
  15. A big thanks to my good friend Claude ("cv27") who used Forscan and disabled the silly "double honk". He also enabled the flasher to flash 6 times (instead of the factory 3) on my 2019 Titanium. The "double honk" think is very annoying and in my opinion useless…and about the lane changing flasher feature going from 3 to 6 times is much better because it gives you just a little more time to actually change lanes before turning off . Claude.
  16. Exactly. My '16 Titanium was my first vehicle ever featuring that annoying "double honk". At the time I asked my dealer how to turn it off but they said that they couldn't do anything about it (meaning that I'd have to live with it). Maybe it's because they are not allowed to do this, I dunno... So after becoming a member here and asking several times about it, another member ("cv27") who happened to live in my area contacted me and eventually disabled it for me using the Forscan program. I couldn't be more relieved! Fast forward to a few months ago (July), I took delivery of my new '19 Titanium and contacted my friend again to disable it (as well as enabling my lane-changing flasher to flash 6 times instead of 3). Yeaaaaay! Claude.

    Well, I think that neither of you or me are "right" or "wrong" here… You said the key word here is "taste" . I'm not saying "good" or "bad" either, I'm saying tastes are "different" from one person to another. "Different strokes for different folks". That's about sums it up! Claude. P.S: I'm 67 y/o…
  18. I see you guys come up with several solutions (not closing the door, locking using the keypad, different key fob settings, etc…) but I still think that nothing beats disabling it. Imagine having to leave your car door open while the engine is running… that's an invitation to car theft...…naaaah…. --> D-I-S-A-B-L-E it! It makes me think…back in the '60's there were no alarms, honking horns, etc…and people didn't have the habit of leaving their car keys inside their cars…so I don't wee why it should be worse today… Claude.

    --> You guys are funny… You're paying for a chromed model then cover it in black!… I'm at the opposite from you. The main reason why I chose the Titanium over the ST was not price-related but rather because of the black trim… Too much black on the ST …the grille, side windows trim, wheels, etc…too much black!…Usually the more chrome, the more luxurious it looks. The ST looks like a lower end model to me. I love "bling" and I wanted as much chrome as I could get soooo, I ordered the "Elite" package because it comes with the chrome mouldings at the bottom of the doors and at the bottom of the front bumper Claude.
  20. It's like way back around 1968 when they introduced the "key in the ignition warning buzzers". At first, everybody thought it was a good idea but after a few years, no one was really paying attention to them anymore, it became bothersome and people started to delete them. Same thing for that "double honk" feature. I find it more annoying than useful (to me at least…)…and about the situation you described above well, if people paid more attention to what they're doing, that wouldn't happen. Claude.
  21. There's something it my girlfriend's '14 Mustang..but I don't know how it works… I saw that there is a tube coming off the air intake system going to some kind of valve close to the firewall but after that I dunno… I really can't say if the engine sound comes from that tube or if the sound comes out of the car's speakers…but if it's from the speakers, what happens when the audio system is off? Claude.

    I find that de-badging makes a vehicle too "anonymous"…People look at it and wonder "what make of car is that??"… As for being "sporty"…Mmmm...how so? Personally, I think there has to be some kind of "identification" or "name" on it … Claude.

    Nice Edge Matthew! …but…why de-badge it?… I'm proud to let others know that I drive an "Edge Titanium", so why hide it? Funny but you're going the opposite than me!… I actually want more chrome! I bought a '19 Titanium and I ordered it with the "Elite" package so I could have the added chrome trim at the bottom of the doors and at the bottom of the front bumper too….but I agree with you about the top of the windshield tint strip to make it easier on the eyes! Have fun with your new Edge, Claude.
  24. It"s going to look awful…like those vehicles they use for safaris if Africa. Well I guess it's "to each his own"...
