  1. I don't remember what version I installed, maybe 2 tone, but it's from the 2015-2018 version edge & I'm quite pleased with it. Moar better than the whimpy beep beep OEM horn. Install took less than 10 minutes. I went in through the drivers front wheel liner with the wheel turned all the way to the right & popped it out. Plug & play. Let me see if I can find the thread. https://www.fordedgeforum.com/topic/32355-change-single-note-horn-to-dual-note-horn/#comment-233940
  2. Summer rubber installed on our 2016 SEL Fwd. Kumho Crugen HP71's & new TPMS's installed. TPMS's were still good, but we just crossed over 8 years on the OEMs. Didn't want to unmount them & replace them in the next year or so. Spring me didn't screw fall me this time. Winters, which probably need to be replaced as well, are cleaned & ceramic coated. Now to hopefully enjoy Mother's Day this weekend with the wife & a family.
  3. Got around to putting the summer wheels & tires on our 2020. This year, spring me won't screw fall me. I cleaned & 'ceramic' coated the wheels with Mekee's 37 Hydro Blue. Second year I've used it. Makes cleaning the wheels really easy. There's something about water beading off the wheels that makes you feel like the wheels are really clean. The 2016 is getting new summer rubber, the OEMs lasted till now. Now to repeat the tire cleaning process so spring me doesn't screw fall me.

    I know that the non ST's take ULV fluid. Not sure about the ST's. I just did my 2020 SEL's with OEM Mercon ULV fluid a few months ago. Doubt it's helpful. Owners manual says Mercon ULV for the 2.7L :
  5. I'm wondering if some sort of debris from the pads? I've had 4 or 5 sets of these over the years on different vehicles & have never had an issue. Maybe this was just a fluke. Surely it's odd, but relatively cheap repair.
  6. I've noticed a weird grove developing in my drivers side rear rotor. Took everything apart & cleaned & lubed everything. I probably could have paid someone to resurface both the pad & rotor, but it ~$150 for a new set of pads & rotors for the rear, so I just replaced them. Both sets were centric premiums & centric pads, so maybe something wedged between it & I didn't catch it. Relatively painless repair, took more time to find my rear caliper tool than anything.I've noticed a weird grove developing in my drivers side rear rotor.

  7. That's how I always have done it as the negative side of the battery isn't easy to get to. Start-stop still works for ~ 2 months so far after resetting the BMS. I haven't looked at the battery state of charge, but I can if the issue pops up again.
  8. I posted this in another thread, but: I don't have much to back this up, but my start-stop wasn't working for months stating that it was disabled for vehicle charging. I even threw it on the battery charger for a few days & it still wouldn't work. I went into FORScan & reset the BMS & my start-stop function has returned to normal. The car would sit for days on the charger & the start-stop function wouldn't work, even when the charger would indicate that it's in trickle mode, aka fully charged. Figured I'd need to drive it around more, so I'd unhook it & go for a couple hours drive at highway speeds & it still wouldn't work. Got curious & went into FORScan & did a BMS reset & it's back to normal. As I said earlier, I don't have much to support this, but I think that the BMS lies. It was almost 3 years to the day that I purchased our 2020, (10/2020) when the start-stop feature quit due to vehicle charging. I reset the BMS in January & it's been fine ever since

  12. 3 times drain & fill on our 2016 SEL Fwd 2.0 w/ 69,083 miles. 2nd time we've done it on the 2016. Got anywhere between 4 & 4.5 quarts out each time. This time we used Valvoline Maxlife instead of OEM šŸ¤ž
  13. I was able to take part of the fender liner off & installed a 2015-2018 OEM Ford edge horn. Plug & play, less than 10 minutes on our 2020 SEL AWD.
  14. They should have with the volume button. I'd read the owners manual & if that doesn't work, I'd make a trip to the dealership.
  15. Thanks. I guess it is serviceable when you split the trans open, lol. Here's MacT talking about the ULV fluids: https://youtu.be/kJQW6wXS0qg?si=e4Hbwa7tYkCXaygT
