    As an FYI, a 2 ton bottle jack, with 5" of ram travel, will not lift the Transit Connect high enough off the ground to change the tires. I figured that with the unibody pinch weld lifted 1' off the ground, it would be good.

    To combat road noise

    This has been discussed before. They're just decoration, not lights. You can order a pair and replace youself but they're really expensive, $50-60 a piece.

    I have access to quite a collection of bumper jacks as we've used them for dozens of tasks at the country place. They would be perfect for converting an FTC back bumper into a spoiler... GK

    I have an extra dumb key for my 2015 in my wallet. But due to the special nature of the TC keys, it had to be bought and cut at the dealership. I know the first gen used a different style, but it's likely available those too. Just ask for a non-transponder key and they should be able to get one. Mine was around $10 IIRC and I made sure to include it in the purchase deal even though my TC included the two extra fob keys.

    2014+ Lowering Springs

    I was planning on ordering lowering springs from Eibach for my other car. Screw them. Plenty of other suppliers available.

    Most shops have a fluid exchange machine. @ $269, I am tempted to buy one. Shops will charge at least $150 for a transmission flush. 6 gallon capacity is 24 quarts.

    Door Sensors

    I assume you have the door modules. Try these: sliding door wiring 1.pdf sliding door wiring 2.pdf

    Outstanding !!! Good to know the process, while time consuming, doesn't seem too difficult. I'll still probably let some shop do it for me, when time comes to change it. I have just fallen out of love with oils and messes and disposal.

    It looks like Autobytel obtained info on pricing and options for the upcoming 2019 Transit Connect. https://www.autobytel.com/ford/transit-connect/2019/configurator/

    Fuel filler security

    I suspected someone was stealing gas a few years ago - put a locking gas cap on my pickup truck. About 4 months later, a colleague at work asked me about it. "SHHH! You, me & the guy stealing my gas are the only two people who know about that!" GK

    Do not buy those jack pads in pairs, or sets of 4. You will only be using 1 jack. Your jackstands cannot ust pads. There are pads for jack stands. I picked up my floor jack pad from Amazon for about a Lincoln. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01GXPIHY6/ref=od_aui_detailpages01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I'm about as done as I can get, for the moment. I'm sure there will be more, but this is it for the general modifications.

    Ford just pisses me off. After 15 years of owning, racing, and professionally race modifying Subarus, Ford is unbelievably customer hostile in comparison. I like my van but I'm growing to dislike the company it came from more and more.

    in the below pic you can see the door latch (center on the pillar) I need the thing a ma jigs that are above and below it . Both sliders have a broken 1 and a stuck one in the pillars Doors still work and function fine . On another note , my rear window wipers now usually swipe the rear glass at least once when you first start the van . and they are not even turned on . WTF ! and sometimes in the summer when you turn on the AC it blows hot air forever , won't start blowing cold air until you shut the van off and then restart . Then it works fine . doesn't happen all the time, but Once in a while it does . Do these friggin things have Gremlins or what ?
