    Help finding side window deflectors

    Unfortunately that's not an option. I got the photo from Facebook and have asked over there as well.

    Side Mirror drip

    So it occurred to me since the car wash I go to includes free vacuuming that I could use the vacuum to suck all of the excess water out of the mirrors. I've tried it a few times and so far it seems to be working good. No more water spot streaks down my doors! There's a seam under the mirrors where the plastic meets the metal which traps water and I have to vacuum that out too. It's an extra hassle to even have to do this but its better than the alternative.
  3. I've been trying to figure out what brand these side window deflectors are, anybody know?
  4. I'm sorry to hear that, I hope everything turns out alright for you and your family.
  5. Did you get the wheel adapters installed?
  6. I can understand prioritizing comfort. I'm not quite there yet. 😉 I love the way it looks and honestly, it could be 3/8" or 1/2" less drop than it is and it would still look really good.
  7. Just a quick update, after being lowered for a couple of weeks, I started hearing random popping sounds coming from the right front, then a day or two later the left side started doing the same thing. I thought something was seriously wrong so I pulled the front tires and inspected everything to make sure nothing was loose. Turns out everything was fine and after some research online I had a good idea that it was the springs rubbing against the rubber seat. So I spent a good three hours pulling the front struts again and putting some grease between the springs and rubber spring seat. It's been about a week and no more noises from the front. Turns out doing this was mentioned in the how-to guide as an optional item. Unfortunately I didn't pay attention to it the first time. I forgot to mention, this time I picked up this oxygen sensor socket from Nothern tool to use on the 21mm nut on the top hat. Although I could only do about a quarter turn at a time It worked good.

    Side Mirror drip

    The water drip issue is a huge pain. Just when I think the water is all drained from the mirrors and I've dried off the doors for the final time I'll come out an hour later and there will be a long water spot streak down the sides of the doors. The last thing I want to do is carry a leaf blower around with me every time I go to the car wash lol. Looking under the mirror I can see that most of the water is dripping from the seam where the plastic trim fits around the mirror. I am considering using some clear silicone to seal it up or maybe drill a small hole so it drains quicker.
  9. Did you ever resolve this? My 19' Edge ST, which I purchased new, started doing the exact same thing after about 18 months of owing it. Only the driver's door consistently locks / unlocks with keyless touch. The other doors work intermittently, but most of the time do not work. Tonight I disconnected the positive terminal on the battery for about and hour and and after reconnecting it I tested the doors and they all work. Time will tell if it continues to work consistently.
  10. Is that washer already on the vehicle or does it need to be added? Anybody tried this?
  11. The alignment corrected both front and rear toe. The front camber was ok but the rear is out and still is, but not so bad that its a major issue as long as I keep tires rotated. Does anybody make adjustable rear camber arms for our vehicles?
  12. Got the springs installed this weekend. I think it looks really good, (even with the snow tires) more street beast and less 4x4. Overall the install went good, the only issue was with the 21mm nut that holds the strut hat on. I had to find a way to hold the nut and turn the 10 mm on the shock. I ended up using a pair of needle nose vise grips. Thanks for all the info. I'm off to get an alignment done today.
  13. Thanks for the tip about the wipers and the pics. The Edge looks a lot better lowered! How has the ride and handling been for you?
  14. Awesome to hear that the install went well for you. I plan on installing my h&r springs next week and this is the write up I was going to use. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1wQ3WRD6zvzHaAbxE3hCZpyKIwbBI3-Gs/view , from this thread https://www.fordedgeforum.com/topic/22579-hr-sport-springs-on-g2-edge-sport/?page=7 Is this the same one that you used, any issues or tips? Also, can you post some pics from the side and front. I am curious how much the wheels/tires are tucked in due to lowering and if I'll need to use wheel spacers to compensate.

    2019 Edge ST amplifier install

    Good informative video. I just wanted to note that there is also a spot on the drivers side firewall, behind and below the battery to run the wire (battery must be removed). I have 1/0 gauge wire running through it to the back. It is important to note that you want to have protection around the wire as it goes through the firewall. I put a hole through the middle of the existing grommet. If the amp wire is laying against the metal hole through the firewall, it could overtime wear through the wire's shielding and eventually come into contact with the metal. This also brings up the importance of making sure the amp wire is properly fused. I have an extensive audio build log over on diymobileaudio.com for those that may be interested. https://www.diymobileaudio.com/threads/2019-ford-edge-st-build.417123/
