just as long as you turn your headlights on at night and don't rely on DRLs, the number of drivers I see doing that now is staggering, how they can see I don't know, mine are bright don't get me wrong but they will only illuminate about 10 yards ahead and the blind everyone else on the road
This, Please have your dipped beams on at night, DRL's are blinding for other drivers
you will also need to save the settings (including VIN) from the old cluster and import them into the new one, ELMConfig can do this, otherwise it might think it is from a different car and refuse to start
Had my windscreen replaced in the summer due to a long crack at the bottom.
Great job by Autoglass. the windscreen is made by pilkington which i believe are the OEM for Ford, either way it is the same, if not better quality than OE.
Mine is just the heated windscreen which they fitted, but they do stock all types, so you will just need to make sure you let them know the extras you have.
no leaks or anything, i watched the installation start to finish, great guy too that explained the process. They also offer a lifetime warranty so any issues and they will come back and replace it no questions asked.
make sure you install the drivers (instructions in the listing)
and download the ELMConfig sofware from here: http://civil.iffc.ru/ELMConfig/ (download the first two links and extract the ELMConfig zip and install the runtime pack)
turn the ignition on the car, not started, just ignition on (all the lights should come on the dash)
Once everything is set, run up ELMConfig, set the langage to english, the port to the one the cable is connccted to, the braud rate to auto-select and the connection to Focus II / C-Max / Kuga and then click open port
make sure the switch on the cable is set to MS-CAN
once the main window is open, click on the GEM button (on the top left of the side bar) and click read. make sure information is being displayed on that screen (igniton voltage, serial number, part number etc.)
click on configuration and click on page 2
click on Read from GEM and it should check some boxes on the screen, the ones that you have enabled in the car.
check the box "Auto-locking with re-locking"
also check the within that one, "Autolocking enabled by customer and AutoLocking with Re-locking"
click Write to GEM
wait for a success message
thats it, switch off the car, pull out the cable and youre done.

A blanked EGRV is the same as a non functioning EGRV in as much as the valve is effectively permanently closed when blanked, so terracleaning won't clean the blanked EGRV - but you don't need it cleaned as it's not functioning
However you could temporarily remove the blank for the clean & reinstall if after if you can be bothered, as the terraclean will at least then assist in cleaning the inlet manifold of accumulated gunk which is important
i was thinking the same, i will be getting mine terracleaned in the next month, and ill remove the blank before i take it there as i want the intake manifold cleaned
