  1. 2016 towbar

    Hi I cannot find a detachable towbar to fit my 2016 S Max. Ford do not supply one. My 2016 S Max car has not got self-levelling suspension. It has a spare wheel. It does not have Sport Pack body trim. It has a foot operated tailgate - keyless entry. The foot operated tailgate appears to be what is stopping towbar manufacturers supplying a towbar. When a towbar is fitted, I do not require a foot operated tailgate ( I recently was taking a box out of the boot when the tailgate started closing as the detector had seen my foot move away from the boot area). Witter technical state that they can supply a towbar to fit, but that the foot detector for the tailgate has to be moved. They also state that they have produced towbars for the S Max & Kuga, which have foot operated tailgates, for the past few years, without issues. What options are there for the foot detector after fitting a towbar? The options I would prefer for the foot detector, after a witter towbar was fitted are, in order of preference:- - cover the detector so that it never operates (less risk of being hit on the head when removing boxes from the boot) - disable the foot detector electrically, when the electrics are re-programmed after the towbar is fitted. - re-position the foot detector as suggested by witter. Anyone got any thoughts about fitting a detachable towbar to an S Max with the above spec? Thanks
  2. 60,plate Smax Engine Problems

    An old thread, but.... This info may be of use to someone. My 10 plate S Max, 140 diesel, had an intermittent start problem. It was repaired after the 4th visit to Ford Dealer. They had it twice for 5 days. The fault was a flap in the air inlet, which was sticking.
