  1. Paint flaking off

    Have had same thing on roof of my 35,000 mile 2013. Dealer said Ford would warranty it, strip and repaint entire roof. I dont trust dealer not to make a mess of my vehicle based on how they handled other service work.
  2. Remove Front Passenger Seat

    Try http://airbagsystems.com
  3. The MK2 nose yet to be painted and installed.
  4. I am in the process of instaling a earlier front on my US Connect. I bought a bumper and grill for the 06-09 model and had it shipped over.
  5. I have a similar issue that I want to make my 2013 a one person vehicle. Want to disable the passenger seat airbag and sensors so that I can remove the seat without a bunch of warning lights.
  6. 2014+ TC Manual Conversion

    @dotmaster206, keep up the posts. I am nearing 3 years owning a 2013 TC and plan to convert to manual trans when warranty is up. I live near Orlando so nice to know a local shop will have experience. The computer stuff makes me nuts. My van is fighting the swap to 17" Escape wheels and I need to turn off passenger seat airbag so I can use the folding Euro passenger seat. Will be watching your progress reports.
  7. Fold Flat Front Seat from German Transit Connect / Tourneo. Folds level with cargo area to extend useable space to the dash. SOLD
  8. Camper Conversion 6"2"

    Mrtn, have seen the partition hinged in some folding seat TCs. More of a cage but it swings forward in line with the center console seperating the driver from folded passenger seat.
  9. Operation Adventure Transit

    @Lost, the folding seat serms like it will work fine and adds a lot of camping space. Euro TCs dont have as many sensors as we do so I need to add a inline resistor at the seat harness to fool the computer. Because of more than one friend overseas I ended up with 2 right seats but Craigslist can sort that out.
  10. Operation Adventure Transit

    Thanks @lost, good to hear there is a tire option that works. I will check it out when its time for new rubber.
  11. Camper Conversion 6"2"

    European Connect has a folding front passenger seat. Folds flat and level with deck to extend cargo area to the dash. I bought one from Germany.
  12. Have seen photos of TAXI Connects with a small window in the factory window option in the sliding door glass. Not big but good to vent when camping.
  13. Operation Adventure Transit

    Been following your post as I want to do similar mods. I added the small silver UK center caps over black wheels (looks like a police vehicle). Also bought a Folding Front Passenger Seat from Germany (non USA option). Folds flat and level with rear deck so you can haul long items. How does your TC drive with the larger tires?
  14. Storage Under the LWB's Load Floor Extension?

    There are 2 types of the footwell cover. The earlier version is narrower and uses the same plastic door sills as a van with seats. The later version is almost full width and the plastic sills blend into it. They unbolt by removing the 6 Torx head seat mount bolts and the plastic door sills. I bought a spare of each type of panel at a local junk yard to experiment with. I think you could make two top open doors over each well for storing tools and tiedowns. Another option would be to check marine supply shops for boat drop in fiberglass boxes or just the covers to make fabrication easy.
