  1. Where did you get your black Ford emblems for the front, rear, and wheel center caps from? 

    1. roots57


      sorry for the late reply, I had the Ford emblems custom painted by a guy in Michigan I found on eBay, he does great work, I think I paid about $150 for both (front and rear).  I also got the center caps from eBay, but those came from China.  If you do buy these, I would suggest getting a couple extras.  I've already lost two of them and had to rebuy them.  a set of 4 is only about $15-$20 so its worth getting a few extras.  the snap in tabs will relax in the hot sun and can fall out.  let me know if you want me to send you links for each item.

  2. Just remove the entire headlamp assembly then replace the bulb. I've had mine off many times, it only takes a few minutes as there are only 3 screws, one screw is plastic so be a bit careful with that one.
  3. I bought these ones from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01HYVT2R4/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 They worked for about 6 months, but then the white started to flicker. Turns out there wasn't quite enough voltage to them. There was only about 9 volts going to them which was just under the limit to keep them operating properly. This seems to be a common problem. I was going to try fixing it, but decided it wasn't worth the trouble, although I really liked the look.
  4. Monroe now makes an OEM replacement rear shock for Gen-II Edge. They are cheaper than the Motorcraft shocks ($32 vs $58). I'm going to give them a try. I've already had one of the OEM Motorcraft shocks fail completely, all the oil was waiting for me in my parking spot one morning, I almost slipped and fell in it. Monroe p/n 37378 I also compared the listed specs against my leftover OEM Motorcraft shock and all looks good (extended length, travel length, lower mounting hole spacing, and stem thread). I'm hoping these Monroe's will hold up a bit better with my suspension mods (H&R springs and ADDCO sway bar).

    Lens Tinting to Prevent Yellowing?

    I tinted my headlight lenses with light smoke film for protection against debris/fading as well as for looks. The headlights are fairly easy to do on the difficulty scale, there are some really good dry apply films now that I found way easier to work with compared to wet apply films. The tail lights are a different story, very difficult due to the extreme 3D surface profiles, they also don't really need the same protection compared to the headlights. They also make the dry apply film in clear if you prefer. In a few years when I sell/trade I will pull it off and the lenses will be like brand new.

    New ST Owners (Tips, Tricks & Issues)

    The body work where the mud flaps are mounted looks identical to the 15-18 sport (esp the front), theres a really good chance they will fit the ST also. If it is a must-have item, $40 isn't a huge loss if you can't make them fit, esp considering there isn't any other options. The Chinese mudflaps fit perfectly on my sport.

    P144C - PCM Code HELP

    2016 Edge Sport, 19k miles. My car threw this P144C code the other day. Anyone have any experience with this one before I take it to service? The code is apparently "P144C - Evaporative Emission System Purge Check Valve Performance" Everything is still running fine, but the remote start feature is disabled and the check-engine warning light is still on.
  8. I dont remember seeing BMW anywhere. They came in two plastic bags, I'll see if I can find the packing slip.
  9. yeah no worries, I should have plenty. I'll let you know when I get them and you can PM me your mailing address.
  10. Small screws from McMaster Carr usually come in a box of like 50 or 100 so I'll send you a handful when I get them if you want. I need to wait until my paddles arrive so I can determine the thread size.
  11. Looks good. I agree having them a little bigger will help when shifting during tight cornering. Normally with my hands at a comfortable wheel position, I can only reach the paddles with my pinky fingers. Its tough to get to them at all when the wheel is turned. Just ordered mine from AliExpress and used a first-time buyer $4 off coupon so all-in I only spent $34.60 with free shipping. I will probably get some black oxide coated set screws to make them less noticeable. On eBay they are $56, but not sure if those are from the same mfg
  12. I assume they mean turn off the engine first, but I've only heard the term flame-out when a jet engine shuts down during flight. Technical writing from an incompetent translator is always good for a laugh.

    2015 + Ford Edge Raptor Style Grille

    No difference, the "facelift" to the second generation Edge is for model year 2019, should fit the same for a 2018 model. 2015-2018 are the same as far as I know.
  15. Thats a good idea. You may want to get some PPF knifeless tape so you can do your cuts on the car without scratching the paint, or you can try cutting it ahead of time then matching it up
