  1. Is it half hidden behind a palm tree on the right of the picture?
  2. How do you save the setting? The manual linked to above refers to 'memory function' but I can't find what that is.
  3. Yes, when it's heavy rain and I'm on the motorway, the water comes off the screen and onto the side windows to such an extent that I can't see out of my door mirrors. I have found that putting Rain-X on my side windows has improved that.
  4. I know, I read your previous post Kevin...a pity I didn't see it before taking my car in! I just wanted to add it to make sure people were aware in case anyone else gets fobbed off. Even if the tool was needed, surely a garage could look at their appointments for the next day or two and identify ones they can't do (for whatever reason) and then ring the customer to save a wasted journey.
  5. I rang my dealer several weeks ago after receiving the recall letter, to book the car in for the pulley recall. Went through to the call centre who booked it in for me for today. Dropped the car off at the dealer at 8:30 this morning, walked to the railway station to pick up my wife's car and drove it home. She'd gone in to work especially on the train so I could use her car to get home. I'd just got home when the dealer rang me...sorry we can't do the pulley for you today as we are waiting for the correct tool. So, I asked why it had been booked in if this was the case and was told that the call centre doesn't know which garages have the tool and which don't. I suggested that they should be told then! Not impressed at all. Why can't these dealers look the previous day at work that is due in to ensure they can actually do the work and, if they can't, ring the customer so that they don't have a wasted trip? It's not rocket science is it?

    Funnily enough I had my recall letter today and that quotes my car as having the 2.0 ltr DW 230PS engine. 😁
  7. If something appears on the display take a photo of it so you can show your dealer.
  8. Re the radio showing the artist/song, you can get this to show. Go into the radio menu in settings and there is an option to turn on something like radio text. Turn that on and songs/artists will then show. I can't answer the signs query but I'm sure someone else will be able to.
  9. Yep, you're right Ant, it is the heated seats. I was puzzled by this when I first got my Edge as previous cars I'd had with heated seats didn't have fans in them so didn't make a noise. I still find mine a little annoying as they are quite loud. Overall though I love the car so I can put up with a mild annoyance.
  10. What was the outside temperature? Was your heated screen automatically on as well?

    Brake Discs

    Simon, are you sure it's the brake discs? Mine has done about the same mileage as yours and after a long drive I can sometimes detect a strange smell after stopping and getting out of the car. I'd assumed it was just the exhaust getting hot.
  12. Let us know how you get on with the roof bars and the glass roof. I'll be interested as having a roof box on mine would be useful for carrying extra stuff when we go camping.
  13. My air con is always on. I was advised years ago to use it regularly, summer and winter, as this ensures the components keep working. Using it occasionally can cause more problems and generally, apart from re-gassing, air con component failures can be expensive to fix. In all the cars I've had since 2001 which have had air con/climate control, I've never had a failure...yet! 🙄

    Sat Nav

    Thanks Ian. I'd not thought of doing that. Will give it a try later on...

    Sat Nav

    Does anyone know if the standard sat nav in the Ford Edge Sport covers France? We're going away in a couple of weeks and I'd like to use the built in one if I can. If not then I have a fairly new Tom Tom I can use but it's a pain having to carry it around with me all the time. Thanks Neil
