  1. If you don't mind it being for the English version, Haynes makes a very good manual.
  2. I have seen on a small number of TC vans with a stationary window with a pop out inner window similar to the full size Transit van.
  3. Power Window Switches

    I have seen the door panel trim and switches on Ebay UK. Not sure about the wiring harness.
  4. On my 2011 TC XLT wagon, my headlight low beams cut off when I select my high beams. I want th have both beams stay on when high beam is selected, just like my 2006 Ford Freestyle does. Any thoughts? Thanks.
  5. Performance mods.

    Don't forget European sites. Found some stuff there for my 2011 TC. Good luck.
  6. Retrofit 2012 SYNC Into 2011

    It is NOT a direct swap, at least with the old Ford 6000 head unit. Still investigating.
  7. From 2012 on the XLT Wagons have a cloth, not vinyl visor with mirror on both sides.
  8. http://www.automobile-catalog.com/car/2012/980360/ford_tourneo_connect_lwb_1_8_tdci_110.html The American first gen TC is actually a Tourneo Connect, ford passenger version of a Transit Connect. Here are the towing specs for a LWB Tourneo with a turbo diesel.
  9. American first generation Transit Connects are long wheelbase models. http://www.outandaboutlive.co.uk/Caravan-Towing-Car-Match 1574kg is the highest rating for first generation TC's. Thats 3470lbs.

  11. Rattle over left rear sliding door

    I have a rattle in that general area in my 2011, but haven't researched its actual location. Assumed it was the door itself.
  12. Backup Camera Recommendations

    4D, I like the "factory finish" you achieved by putting your camera in the factory location. Nice job.
  13. Transit connect alloys

    Off of which generation/year? 15 or 16 inch?
  14. Radio and speaker replacement

    Try www.crutchfield.com they carry harnesses, speakers, head units, installation kits, all the stuff to make it easy and look professional.
  15. Better throttle response, stays in OD longer. Better MPG?

    Final results. Improved throttle response. On cold days, it almost feels turbo boosted. The transmission stays in OD longer on inclines and kicks back to OD sooner after it has kicked down. City fuel economy slightly improved, highway mileage appreciably improved. At fill up after highway trip, the expected mileage on the odometer goes to 420, usually more like 360. at this point, I'm planning on keeping it this way until i find a better solution. So far pleased with my free modification.
