  1. Lol. I was thinking it, but chose not to say anything !
  2. If you intend to change the fog light bulbs when doing the headlamps, it is far easier to remove the complete headlamp units on both sides, which then gives you easy access to the rear of the fog lights, and it’s easier to fiddle with the various clips, with the headlamp units on a rug or other soft surface on the ground.
  3. Have you had the aircon pulley recall carried out ? If so, perhaps they haven’t re-gassed.
  4. Worthwhile comment. 🙄
  5. As with Simon above, my Kuga did exactly this and it was a faulty DPF sensor.
  6. I’m sure they will. There are sensors which track oncoming vehicles, to adjust the beam pattern. I’m afraid I don’t know whether these sensors are built into the light units or are seperate items. I’m sure someone will confirm. I think there may have been mention of this headlamp swap in a previous thread.
  7. Further to my last post, there are members here who are either current or ex-Ford technicians, so they are in a far better position than me to say exactly what is required.
  8. If you mean the all singing and dancing complete headlamp units, then I’m afraid they are not a straight swap. Physically yes they will go in the same space with the same fittings, but they have associated modules and sensors needed to operate, together with software changes to the ECU. If however you mean LED bulbs, then yes they can be a straight swap.
  9. Must be that new regenerative braking, regenerating brake pads. Must buy some !!
  10. @Owen1988 very nice and neat, but like @simonb65 I’d be a bit concerned about the drainage holes. Don’t suppose this would be an issue for some time though.
  11. As a simple “which is best”, it would very much depend on what you plan on doing with it and what your budget is. A decent spec Edge will be over £40k, so now attracts a very expensive road tax for the first 6 years of ownership. That being said it is much bigger all round than a Kuga, which doesn’t have a huge boot for it’s size. It is also more comfortable. Personally I tow a horse trailer occasionally and I found my Kuga to be just a little underpowered, whereas my Edge (210ps version - although mine is recorded as 230ps) manages far better. If i didn’t have a specific need for the additional power, would I buy an Edge over a Kuga ? Probably not. Personal choice I suppose, but like other Edge owners have said in other threads, I am unlikely to buy another as the price bracket it has now slotted into brings it into the same ball park as more premium marques.
  12. I’d rather that design than a conventional seal arrangement where inside the door checks gets all mucky then you get that on your trouser leg / dress.
  13. Think this is what you are looking for though I’m not positive.
  14. I’m on F8 maps and have no idea where you are talking about as I’m just outside Edinburgh but I’ve had a look and can provide the two attached photos which appear to confirm the A556 on my maps that you refer to. Can you confirm this is where you mean ??
