  1. Third row seatbelt holder

    Called the dealer and they were nice to give me this part number in case anyone needs it in the future. Too spendy for me! AM5Z1731066AA
  2. Third row seatbelt holder

    I am looking to replace this part and cannot find it online. Anyone know the right part number? On the back, AM51-U-1066-A AW (best guess) is written on it but that does not seem to lead me anywhere. I searched the parts diagrams and could not find it. 2014 Titanium
  3. I also have the railgrab setup. I am bummed because I bought it when Yakima had it as a fit for our vans. They no longer specify it due to a pretty major problem. There is too little clearance between the bottom of the bar and the roof to really use any accessories. I was barely able to get the Yakima surfboard system to fit. In order to get bike racks up there I had to go on the outside of the rails. I would not recommend it unless you are just using it to haul plywood or something.
  4. Hello from San Diego

    Message sent Re keyless entry pad.
  5. WISH LIST!!!!

    #1 item on my wish list. The ability to open the hatch while the motor is running.
  6. Roof Rack -OEM -2014

    I might be interested. What would you sell them for?
  7. My audio project

    Hi there. My crossovers are mounted in odd locations behind the dash. I'd say they are less mounted than just placed in the spaces I could fit them. It was one of the easier tasks to run a wire from the crossover to the A pillar for the tweeter. I did not use the factory wiring for the tweets....just for the doors. I am now regretting not getting an aftermarket deck and avoiding a lot of the splicing I did into the factory wires. I don't use Sync much at all and could get a Bluetooth steering wheel control for track and volume. Sorry I can't be more help for crossover location. I might have suggested buying the A pillar that comes with the upgraded radio but I think you could make a hole easily enough that will look ok. It will just look more stock to get the Ford parts.
  8. Rear hatch license plate mounting holes

    Thanks all. I have a hard time bringing a vehicle in for service knowing there is staff that would pull something like that. I was hoping i would have a tap to try to fix the threads but i guess not.
  9. My air pressure was also at 32 and I didn't realize it until after a 100 mile trip to the mountains. :( Sorry to be lazy. Do you have an example part number?
  10. I was wondering if anyone knows the thread size for the license plate on the rear of the hatch versions? My dealer used the wrong screw and messed the threads.
  11. My audio project

    I have finished adding 6.5" component speakers in the front door and A pillar. I am pleased with the upgrade and can hear the stereo now! I frequently had the volume at 75% previously. I dont have much to add for helpful info. 1. I noted that adding wire through the door grommet would be impossible. I have to retract that by saying one could add the proper pins after researching the part numbers or if really a risk taker, you could drill through the unused section to pass wire. 2. To remove the a pillar, strip down the rubber trim that cases it. start at the top and work down. There are three clips. 3. I damaged the paint on the door trying to un pop the clips. They are really in there. I find the plastic itself gives or the sheet metal moves on some clips. Others popped right off. I hope to never have to remove it again. Any questions? Feel free to ask. My memory sucks so the sooner the better...
  12. I didn't quite know where to post this so I chose the general section. In my 2014 titanium wagon, every time I close the rear gate it makes several click noises that sound like the locking actuator. It doesn't happen when the liftgate is opened but it is consistent on each close. Has anyone else noticed this? I can't think of any reason why it should do this. Since a significant amount of the wiring was messed with an alarm installation and removal, I am worried that there is a wire that is not properly connected somewhere. I definitely want to check other versions of the wagon to see if they do it because I will have to have the dealer address this under my CPO warranty.
  13. My audio project

    I purchased a used 2014 wagon in titanium trim. The previous owner installed an alarm and who know what else. The wiring behind the glovebox was a mess. My stereo was barely audible unless three quarters up? I wonder if the modifications had anything to do with that. I will try to document my stereo upgrade as much as I can. The plan is to install an amp, component speakers for the front, and a sub. I will not mess with the head unit or bother with the rear speakers. I already had a 3 Ch amp and line converter from my other car. Hence the decision to not do rears. i would like to give credit to the poster in this thread. The information was very helpful to me. http://fordtransit.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=156468 i have a few notes after logging many hours so far. 1. The clips in this vehicle are the most difficult I have dealt with. I have installed a handful of systems in various cars over the years. 2. Do not expect to run new wire through the front door grommet. It is actually a connector and therefore impossible to do so. 3. As mentioned in the linked thread, the A pillar trim is one piece. Don't let the multi color plastic fool you. 4. Even though the interior is cavernous, I am having a hard time finding places to install everything in a hidden manner. Others have mentioned putting a sub under the seat. Not possible in a titanium. There is no room if you want to keep all the parts intact. 5. I have had the battery disconnected for quite some time. I hope there are not consequences to this.
  14. My keypad and 4 keys are now programmed to the vehicle. I had the ES7Z-14A626-A keypad originally and it would NOT work. The 7L2Z-14A626-BA was ordered by the dealer and was programmed by them without issue. I have not installed the new keypad yet but am looking forward to it. Thanks for all the advice all.
  15. Upgrading from SYNC to Touch

    I'd love to hear more about this...
