  1. There are 13 pins in my EU trailer plug. Can be used with the 7 pin (old type) adapter and it also senses the trailer hooked up so you should be able to rewire it to your US socket.
  2. Bulkhead Removal

    Weird. Moveable mesh bulkhead means like the rear seat one in Mk1 where you can remove it by undoing just 4 bolts or so? A fixed bulkhead is not moveable by any means. Then there's the cage bulkhead with a door to allow long items to be transported. Less bulkhead means there is none. Probably for conversion. Or check your local regulations if they allow a van without a bulkhead. They don't here.
  3. Bulkhead Removal

    No. European regulations require a barrier (a bulkhead or cage) between the cargo and passenger compartments to avoid injury due to cargo relocation in case of heavy braking or crash.
  4. Bulkhead Removal

    The rigid bulkhead in a van model is not structural. It's bolted to the body and easily accessible. The side bolts are visible, roof bolts are hidden behind the headliner and floor bolts under the cargo floor liner. Naturally removing the bulkhead will weaken the structural rigidity by some margin. The passenger models do not have the bulkhead and are doing just fine. As the middle seat belts are bolted to the bulkhead you need to change the seating capacity in the registration papers to two when removing the seat belt. And disable cargo use, possibly.
  5. Front window defroster - crack

    Yes. It's been standard on all Fords over here since mid-nineties.
  6. Front window defroster - crack

    It's not expensive over here, perhaps €50..100 plus.
  7. 2nd gen-how many miles on stock tires?

    Love the trailer, looks business.
  8. Front window defroster - crack

    The crack does not bother the use of defroster. It may only snap the wires it passes but the rest will still work.
  9. I made an adapter puck out of a block of wood. Made a slit in one side to match the lift point. You can put the support under control arm attachment points, body side.
  10. Impossible with my dealer, they are collectively dumb as a bag of hammers except a few specialists like body works manager and one sales guy.
  11. turn signal clicker needs to be louder

    Okay. I would've thought it's an actual relay, computer controlled or not.
  12. Just make sure the weight rating matches.
  13. anoying back up alarm sound

    Is the trailer plug original? It should disable beeping if it senses the trailer plugged in.
  14. Extended Idle gas usage

    Is it the 2.5? The Ecoboost is rather loud at idle.
