As my handle states, we have a 2008 Edge Limited, with no real complaints other than what I posted earlier (cooling fans etc). One thing that has really pestered me is while driving during the day. The speedo and tach faces are shiny while the needles appear to be a light green. The numbers look like they might be red. At night, I can easily see the numbers but during the day, I must rely on the position of the needles to see how fast I am going, plus I use the aftermarket GPS when I replaced the original radio. Has anyone tried a dash cluster upgrade? I saw another Edge (Sport?) with what I think was a white gauge face with black needles and numbers that were lightyears ahead of mine. I wouldnt mind upgrading to a digital dash if it were a direct swap. Any ideas? (Note: I edited this post after I re-read it, and read it again. I had two cars confused. On one of them, the speedo is easily read during the day but not at night. The Edge is barely readable during the daylight. Oops, my goof.)
Maus posted a topic in Glass, Lenses, Lighting, Mirrors, Sunroof (BAMR), WipersHi everyone, Just competed a small job of refinishing my 2007 Edge fog light bezels. They got really worn after over 130,000 km, and I decided to give them a new look. I found very little information about how to remove the bezels, so I had to work it out myself. So here is a very simple way to snap out the bezels with no tools at all: I took the picture after I replaced the refinished bezel, so it's black, not chrome. Note the yellow circles in the picture above - they mark the places where two protruding tabs on the back of the bezel hold it in place. There are no such tabs on the opposite side of the bezel. Now all you need to remove the bezel is strong fingers. Press on the bumper as show by the red arrow. You'll have to press very hard. No worries - bumper plastic is rigid though flexible, there's no chance of breaking it this way. If you press really hard, you'll make the gap wide enough to grab the edge of the bezel (marked green on the picture) with your bare fingers. Be careful not to release the pressure until you pry out the bezel or withdraw the fingers from the gap, or it'll squeeze really hard. Having grabbed the edge of the bezel, just jerk that side out towards you, and you're done. Here's a closeup of how it looked before: And here's how it looks now: Refinish was very simple: just light sanding with dremel to smooth out the dents, washing and cleaning the surface, then applying 4 coats of black plasti dip.
