    Puncture

    Nice theory but not the case with mine. It was o/side rear wheel on the inner edge of the tyre tread which got the nail. ??

    Wife just back from a trip the other day with the tyre pressure warning flashing up on dash. On close inspection found the culprit. See pic. New tyre required and its only done 8K. Never seen a nail do that in all the years i`ve been in motor trade.

  5. Just checked my paint mixing scheme data and Its a difficult one as it`s a three stage paint, eg basecoat/ coloured clear, and clearcoat lacquer on top. Probably wont need lacquer if its a tiny chip but would need other two stages to get anywhere near the colour or as best you can from a touch up paint.
  6. That`s exactly what I do when dismantling something in workshop that i`m not familiar with. I call the dealer and get him to email the parts list that`s applicable. I can usually work it out from there.

    FORSCAN

    Worked for me after signing in to my Google account. Only problem i had I don't have MS Office only Open Office so had to save in open doc file. But all opened up to view
  8. Have added a couple of sealing strip to mine and much improved. If you have a look inside wheel arch you will see exactly where the seal strip is needed. See pictures. Doesn`t go near drain holes so no worries about blocking drains.
  9. Technology going too far for me. I like to be in control of the driving.

    Karenlb64 See here I had a post a while back, but it kinda went off track. My camera seemed to change view too,, maybe something to do with a software update, who knows. Just got used to seeing it like that now.
  11. Maybe you were looking at an Ecosport. Not an Edge ?
  12. Have you restarted the system eg locked car wait till dash goes completely off then unlock , enter car and check after boot up.
  13. It should come up on screen that its updated successfully and say safe to remove USB.
  14. Anyone on here got the new Ford Edge. Was just wondering if there is any modification to the rear door / rear wheel arch seal. The amount of road grit and dirt along the inside of door bottoms and the actual seal where it fits onto arch is unreal and a very poor design by Ford. Anyone ?
