    Moog - Rear Wheel Bearing Assembly

    I wanted to give another parts manufacturer a try to see if it was more durable. It was a failed experiment. As it turns out, Moog doesn't make a part for the 2nd generation car and other manufacturers were pretty unsure on the numbers of splines used between 1st and 2nd generation cars. I ended up getting my mechanic (a Motorcraft dealer) to just get me Motorcraft parts. All the best, Andrew.

    Moog - Rear Wheel Bearing Assembly

    As it turns out, the Moog wheel hubs are supposed to be interchangeable between fronts and rears on the AWD models, however these particular hubs have the wrong number of splines for a 2015-2018 (second generation) car. The 2015 model year they fit are for the first generation Edge, the last of which were rolled out in early 2015. If you've got a 2015 year second generation car, it seems safer to input the year as 2016 on all the parts websites to ensure you get the correct component. All the best, Andrew.

    Thanks so much, that's a terrific write-up and I appreciate your installation advice! 😁 All the best, Andrew.

    Hey Mr. McCracken, Did you go ahead and fit those VLEDs? If so, how'd it go? 🙂 You're now my Ford Edge Guru, so I'm following the stuff you're doing with great interest. 😉 All the best, Andrew.

    That is disappointing. I was considering ordering today same lines, given the open unaddressed recall on the brake lines from Ford. Were there any other alternatives you considered? All the best, Andrew.

    What to expect at 200,000+ miles

    On MOOG parts... For a 2015 Edge (3.5 AWD), is the MOOG rear hub/bearing assembly the exact same part as the front hub/bearing assembly? I'm planning on replacing all 4 wheel bearings on mine as I do a suspension refresh, but I can't seem to find any complete assemblies that specify that they're for the front. For example, here's the rear assembly: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/mog-513275/applications/year/2015/make/ford/model/edge/drivetrain/awd But the SummitRacing website indicates that they're for the rear only and recommends press-in bearings for the front. I'd rather just replace the front hubs instead to save messing around with presses. I'd appreciate any advice you may have. All the best, Andrew.

I'd appreciate any advice anyone has. All the best, Andrew.

    My Edge is a 2015 and I think this is the original battery, so 5 years old. I'm doing a lot of VERY short journeys in it and I think that's what knackered it. My negative terminal is completely corroded now, so it seems to have suffered a failure in that regard. I measured the space and although the NSB-AGM24F (10.87L x 6.77W x 8.86H) will fit in the space, I don't think I'll be able to put the terminal connectors on and off (or get jumper cables onto it) while it's in place if I ever need to. I think I'm going to give myself the extra bit of headroom by getting the NSB-AGM48 (10.91L x 6.87W x 7.42H) like you did. You've had a good experience with it and that's confidence-inspiring, so I'm off to go buy one today. Thanks so much for your help, I really appreciate it! All the best, Andrew.

    I hope you don't mind me asking these questions on your modification thread - I really do appreciate your help. I've had a look at the bracket you were talking about and think I might be able to squeeze the NSB-AGM24F (more reserve capacity than the NSB-AGM48) in there: https://www.northstarbattery.com/product/nsb-agm24f https://www.amazon.com/NORTHSTAR-Automotive-Group-Battery-NSB-AGM24F/dp/B01GQSBJD6/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=NSB-AGM24F&qid=1598737031&s=automotive&sr=1-1 It's marginally narrower and marginally shorter than the one you got to fit, it's just 1.33 inches taller. What do you think? All the best, Andrew.

    Thanks very much! I really appreciate your help. I'll look for similar holes and probably get the same battery you did. 😁 All the best, Andrew.

    Did you have to modify any of the bracket to get that battery to fit? I've got a 2015 Ford Edge Titanium with the 3.5 V6 and AWD. I work as a Realtor, so I make a lot of very short trips with lots of stops and starts. The other day I had my battery give up on me and I'm borrowing a car to continue working this weekend. I'd like to replace the batter with something that has higher capacity to be able to tolerate the heavy duty required of it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. All the best, Andrew.
  12. Hello Edge Enthusiasts, I've been doing some crawling around under the car recently, and I've noticed that the underbody splash shields are a little bit flimsy. I was wondering if anyone had ever installed something slightly more robust for protection when doing some light offroading. I noticed this product, which is a more comprehensive cover made of plastic (no idea what "plastic steel" is, but I'm guessing it's marketing): https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32862272762.html Slightly more beefy, there's a version of an underbody shield that is made of steel: https://www.skid-plate.com/steel-skid-plate-for-the-protection-of-the-engine-and-the-gearbox-for-ford-edge-2014 That second one might be interesting to combine with: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Stainless-Steel-Auto-Front-Rear-Bumper-Skid-Plate-Bull-Bar-For-Ford-Edge-2015/182742973837?epid=2217865063&hash=item2a8c547d8d:g:bssAAOSw~RNZnqJ1 I don't think any of these products are going to enable rock crawling or skidding over boulders, but I wonder if they'd be a little bit more protective than the essentially felt/cardboard splash guards that Ford fitted to the underbody. Are there any downsides to these, aside from cost? Overheating potential? All the best, Andrew.

    4 Wheel Alignment

    Does anyone have the specification sheet for the proper 4-wheel alignment settings for a 2015 Ford Edge Titanium 3.5V6 AWD with 20" wheels? My dealer messed up my settings with a complimentary alignment (didn't save the old settings, of course) and an independent garage had a go too but the car still feels nervous as if it still has too much negative camber or too much toe-in. All the best, Andrew.
  14. Ok... Module reset: failed to correct the problem. Master reset: failed to correct the problem. Pulling and inspecting all the relevant fuses: all fine and failed to correct the problem. Phoned the local garage to get the diagnostic machine plugged in and when I set off to drive there everything decided to work perfectly. The garage said the car recorded a "low voltage event" to the module on the morning it was giving me problems, but since it was working now they advised not messing with it. The battery tested ok (not perfect, but ok), so I wonder if the electrics in the car are very sensitive to battery output on startup/initialization. At some point, I may install an uprated battery. I used to do that on previous cars for below freezing cranking ability, but I haven't had any such starting issues with the Edge so hadn't thought it necessary. As the problem is self resolving in my case, I'm afraid I add little further data to the discussion. thesavo - what resolved your issue? All the best, Andrew.
  15. Well... my fuses are fine. Taking it into the shop to hook it up to their diagnostics reader. All the best, Andrew.
