  1. Rear speaker harness location

    This is not specifically for this sub model but a general blueprint: First put a double layer of sound insulation mat on the jack compartment walls so it wouldn’t rattle along. This includes plastic interior panels around the area. Use bits of semi hard closed cell foam to ensure there’s no contact between body and sub parts. Stick them everywhere you would expect any rattle to be an issue. Do not force anything tho, especially between the sub and outer sheet metal, it will bulge if you do. Just a slight compression. Use textile based tape on cabling.
  2. Oh, you don't get the e-NV200? Disregard my suggestion. Oops.
  3. If electric is your thing then I would get an NV200 EV (106 miles on NEDC) and be done with it. It's an actual brand product with an actual warranty and support structure.
  4. My 2012 wagon’s sliding door windows are fixed and the rear quarter windows crack open from the back.
  5. There’s a sliding door power window in the wagon? I thought it’s only for the locks.
  6. It just bolted to the rail supports. Shouldn’t be too difficult. Check the cabling first.
  7. Looking to get a diesel

    Yeah, I know. But I also promised to test drive the new diesel. I’ll look into it. I’m taking my TC to service on 26th and I’m getting a loaner for the day, but it’ll be a 2.0 Mondeo, not the TC, unfortunately.
  8. Looking to get a diesel

    Nope, they didn’t have automatic so I didnt even bother.
  9. Looking to get a diesel

    6MT or 6-speed PowerShift dual clutch automatic. 2019 will see new 8-10 speed autos.
  10. Looking to get a diesel

    IF this is the 1.5 EURO6 emission engine we have in Europe then it's been market for a couple of years already and there really haven't been any serious complaints over it, unlike the 1.6 diesel.
  11. Insane mileage :O I have the same cluster and CC indicator is also there.
  12. Because you would not know if there's moisture behind it and if positive then there's no way for the moisture to evaporate/drain. Enter: rust.
  13. Looking to get a diesel

    We’ll probably have some breakthrough battery tech in a couple of years which rids us of the environmental hit of today’s scale.
  14. Looking to get a diesel

    Hybrid is a bit of an economical gimmick anyway. It's more like a feelgood product for people wanting to make a change and support the development of hybrid/electric technology. Electric is already plenty for city folk. In colder climates I see hybrids idling on gasoline all day because you can't turn the engine off because of heating needs. Diesel is great for long distance commuting, not so great for city environment.
  15. 1) then again, the locks are so loud i can hear them in the house.
  16. There are plenty of top notch (pun not intended) conversions here, spend some hours browsing. You can get sliding side windows from taxi scrapyards.
  17. What to look for when buying?

    Caddy is considered better than Connect, usually. The new ones look quite nice as well. The VW plastic is not my thing tho, or the seating position. You say 2012 onwards? Or do you mean 2014 onwards (the new shape)? The first generation was in production from 2002 to 2013 with two facelifts (bar grille in 2007 and the surprised bunny bumper plus new dashboard in 2010). 1.5 diesel and 1.0 Ecoboost petrol are considered to be the best engines for the new shape in Europe. 1.6 Ecoboost is quite rare as many markets did not introduce it at all, including the UK.
  18. You shouldn't spray PU foam anywhere in the car, ever. Old school rust proofing following a good clean and drying helps with road noise. Something thick and heavy, tar like substance.
  19. Torque converter Transit 350HD

    You're less likely to find an answer here as we're here for the Connect only.
  20. Should I change transmission fluid

    Sure, it's half way around the world tho: http://infoauto.ee/ It was the same guy who told me they performed shift actuator fork diagnostics and it shifts fine, the last time I was there. So I told him there are no shift actuator forks in 6F35 (facepalm).
  21. Should I change transmission fluid

    Simple deduction would indicate the dealer being a dummy.
  22. Should I change transmission fluid

    I was at the dealer today to schedule my third service (46Mm in) and asked when would they do the transmission fluid change. “It’s a lifetime fluid, changing it might make it worse.” You dummy.
  23. New TC Owner - Hi Everyone

    We didn't have seat belts, remember? Well, at least the bus my Father drove did not:
  24. Cleaning the headliner?

    Dry carpet cleaner spray + vacuum?
  25. Fusion Wheels

    I went classic. You could call them base modelish, but I wanted to make sure they're strong and from a reputable manufacturer as I sometimes ride fully loaded and a thin spoke wheel may fail a pothole, so I ditched the original idea to get a fancy replica wheel.
