  1. Just had the steering wheel replaced (at last) for the Adaptive Steering recall - had to wait best part of 6 months for the actual steering wheel. All seems good & working as it should BUT I have noticed in the menu options I can't select either the "Normal" or "Sport" mode when in "drive" mode (see photo). Has anyone had the steering wheel replaced & can you select either mode? TBH I'm not sure what difference the 2 modes make so whether mine is just defaulted to the normal mode or something needs resetting I don't know, cheers. PS thought I'd ask on here before I even try to begin to ask the ford service centre!
  2. Check the "auto-relock" works (mine doesn't & I've given up chasing Ford about it 😎)
  3. My Edge went in for a service (18000 miles) in December with both recalls showing on Etis. The service department advised they were still waiting for the steering wheel from Canada (or wherever they come from) but it was ordered late summer when the recall first appeared for my Edge & they were also waiting for the A/C pulley parts. However, when I picked up the car they then advised the A/C pulley had been done, no mention of it on the paperwork but it has disappeared from Etis. TBH I'm not convinced they actually did anything! Anyway I await to hear when the steering wheel recall will be sorted.
  4. Definitely check if it has LED Adaptive Headlights, it was a factory build option & worth the extra cost (see Forum threads on LED Replacement Bulbs!)
  5. The parts are on order from my dealer but I'm not holding my breath!

    Brake Discs

    This was discussed before on the forum (July 2017) but the conclusion appeared to be the hot exhaust does give off a strong burning smell as you've described? See

    For Sync 2 map dates you need to buy a F7 navigation card (which is the latest version for now), assuming you have a F6 memory card in the car? Simply a case of inserting the new card which is available from ebay for around £30 (or you can pay a premium price if you buy from Ford direct!)
  9. I bought the F7 card from eBay late last year as my Aug 2016 Edge (Sync 2) had a F6 card in it when I bought it in March 2017, cost around £40, we’ll see if an F8 version ever materialises 🤓
  10. Sync 2 isn't that bad unless you want the digital speedo - updating maps is just a case of buying the latest F7 card from ebay :-)

    Just pricing these up on-line, similar price to the Pirelli Scorpion Verde all weather tyres so are the Vredstein's a better tyre in terms of all weather performance & durability? Cheers
  12. I was going to do that but then the fault rectified itself next time I used the car, just another Ford gremlin to keep us entertained, cheers
  13. Jumped in the car this morning for my commute & no music, it appeared to be simply turned off but I couldn't turn on via the touch screen or by the main volume/on/off knob, message on touch screen in the entertainment section says "entertainment unavail", anyone else experienced this & can suggest a quick fix before i start pulling fuses out or contacting Ford? The phone connection, satnav, climate control etc all work as normal. Cheers

    Tyres

    It's looking like 2, maybe 3 (I have previously had to change 1 tyre following a puncture), of my Pirelli Scorpion Verde tyres (255/45 R20) will need changing soon (15000 miles). So do I replace like with like or go for the all weather version of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde (I'd obviously replace all 4) or any other suggestions? PS on Oponeo the standard tyre is £163 & the all weather version is £161.
