  1. I discovered this in my 2006 TC with round perforation, so yes. The best possible tissue for it is the hand dryer paper you pull from the center. Cut the roll in half so it fits on the shelf upright and you’re good to go.
  2. Should be this one known issue - corrosion in charging cables. Check the battery terminals and the extra grounding cables between the terminals, body, engine and the alternator. Mine snapped mid drive because the battery was not fastened well and had moved yanking the cable all day, the engine cut out with a bang and also showed two red idiot lights. Reattached the cable with jump leads and got home.
  3. Heated Seats

    Exactly, especially Focus which is the source of most parts in it.
  4. Are you sure there no mixup between Celsius and Fahrenheit?
  5. Thought the wagon didn’t have XL load rating. At least the old shape didn’t.
  6. 215/55 R16 - hens teeth?

    It’s pretty common I guess. Just checked my regular tire supplier, they have 8 different summer tires in stock and it’s off season: https://rehvid.com/tires?size=215_55_16&seasons=summer
  7. That’s above my pay grade.
  8. New 2018 FTC XLT Cargo Van LWB

    I have an actual Euro TC with US size license plate and there were no other holes prior to mounting that so it's definitely not normal.
  9. Do you have another key? The immobilizer coil in the barrel is known to cause issues.
  10. Here’s the code reference: http://fordtransit.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=128266#p1162495
  11. New 2018 FTC XLT Cargo Van LWB

    The little holes are most likely car alarm microwave radars. I have had them on all my cars as add-on (usually on A-pillar). Definitely not phone microphones. I too have them on the shelf but my microphone is on the head unit.
  12. Me neither but having seen moisture building up behind fixed panels in cars I can’t get the image out of my head. I have no idea what to do. Farm boy logic says I would drill holes in the bottom and near roof for convection to do the job but it may have the opposite effect. I talked to the contractors building my house, they say that a tight insulation prevents condensation buildup. Again, I have no idea but I would love to hear from anyone competent for the time I (possibly) decommission and start building mine (my 2012 wagon).
  13. Have you thought about venting the wall panels somehow to prevent condensation and the subsequent black mold?
  14. leather seat covers

    I was just at the customer a couple of days ago servicing a printer and the regular “guy chit chat” came down to complaining about stiff hips and too low seat position for long drives. How did that happen? Damn.
  15. It’s easy to romantisize the crank parking meter. Smells like cigarette smoke in planes and doctors’ waiting rooms. And Nylon stockings.
