  2. On your Pioneer radio do notice screen wash out because of the tilt the radio has to be installed? I'm looking at a Pioneer MVH2400NEX to replace my stock radio. Just wanted to know if I should be looking for a adjustable screen for the replacement.

    I’m a newbie with the groovie 14” connect wagon

    Welcome! Love the color, same as mine. I have a 16 with the Sync navigation system and don't have any complaints. Don't know abut updates, I'm sure others will respond to that. Agree with you on the ride, firm but not harsh. Doesn't ride like my daughters Honda minivan but when it comes to going around corners the TC is much better. My 3rd row seats are in and out, a bit of a hassle to take out but lots of space without them and make it easy to haul my scooter.
  5. Just picked up a 2014 Connect wagon xlt lwb with liftgate. I want to know everything possible about customizing and cool features I may not even be aware of or simple mods. I hate the sync and constantly have navigate back to Bluetooth and I hate that. Any tips for anything would be amazing. Also want to know if the sync can be updated. Had the thing a full 24hrs and I love it. Smoothest ride ever and I removed the 3rd row seats and I love the space!

    ContiproContact Tire. Any Good?

    Sampa - another poster (tcconvert) posted in the thread link below about Pirelli Cinturato Strada AS's (a model exclusive to Discount Tires). Discount Tire is also called America's Tire in some western states. That might be an option for your replacement with the same size and ratings as the OEM Conti's.

    ContiproContact Tire. Any Good?

    Tire Rack .com has a wealth of information for comparing tires. I have two ContiproContacts in 215/55R16 that will need replacing before the end of summer. I've been considering the Goodyear Assurance Weatherready. It's a grand touring so it has a good blend of handling, wet/dry traction, reasonable tread life and hopefully a lot quieter than the Contis. I had considered switching to a 215/60R16 but couldn't find the correct load rating. The thought was to gain a little more cushion with that profile but that may not be necessary if the Goodyears are all they are cracked up to be.
  9. Well the T.C.s already have pretty low profile tires. I guess the next generation might offer an electric model with skate wheels??

    Mr

    You can down load a copy , I would think you could buy a hard copy from Ford.
  11. Rivian today announced an equity investment of $500 million from Ford Motor Company. In addition to the investment, the companies have agreed to work together to develop an all-new, next-generation battery electric vehicle for Ford’s growing EV portfolio using Rivian’s skateboard platform.

  12. @bug512 - thanks for the pic. I recognize that pooch pack. You posted that pic back in March. Seeing cool dogs never gets old. Right on!

    ContiproContact Tire. Any Good?

    Yepp Sure Did Ed. Has anyone upsized? Any issues with tire rubbing or traction control? I could deal with any speedo changes...perhaps a mile per hour or two presumably. Could mathematically figure it out pretty easily. Tire pressure from Tires Plus Installers was very close. They went with 41 all the way around it looks like. I went back to the door jamb stickers suggestion of 41 front 43 rear. Yeah PhotoAl. You got me standing up on the pegs. My CBR was a 1992 1000. It was my ex boss's son's. He took it all apart in the cafeteria of our shop and bought every top dollar part available for it. From wheels and "Upside down" swingarm to stage 2 cams and WiseCo1040 high compression piston kit. Then he landed in jail with the bike still torn apart back in the corner of our cafeteria. I got a phone call late one night from his dad, asking me if I wanted to bail the kid out of jail. This was in 1995. Bail was $1350.00. Took me about four months to put that wicked beeahhh all together. Called her my "RD on steroids". Cams were so hot that it loped like an RD gurgling just before coming on the pipes. What fun. Never built a 4 stroke before. Won the area's horse power shootout just trying to see if any timing adjustments were needed. Apparently not.

  15. Our pups... Lilly is the black dog, Tripp in the middle and Leia on the left... Lilly is a Certified therapy dog and also has her canine good citizen.
  16. Transit Connect OEM Factory Roof Rails These came off my 2019 TC. I had to remove them because I wanted to install a heavy duty Rhino Platform Rack. Actually now in hind sight... I probably could have save myself a lot of trouble and adapted the mounts to work with the factory roof rails. Live and learn. These come standard on the Titanium package These were removed from a 2019 Ford Transit Connect Titanium They retail for about $1,200.00 plus tax purchased from any Ford dealership. Please call your local dealer to confirm! Pictured is a TC with factory roof rails and one with out. Note: If you have a TC that has a headliner, it will have to be removed in order to install the factory roof rail. They are installed with 5 bolts on each side. You can check with your local dealer to see how much they would charge you to remove the headliner, install the rails and reassemble the headliner. If you have a TC cargo version without a headliner, then the installation is simple. The bolt holes are already within the channels of the roof, covered by plugs. Asking $500.00 local pick up (SF Bay Area) or plus shipping
  17. What are they attack dogs , let them roam free, dogs are family , i would put the wife in one cage and kids in the other.
  18. Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new van. Nice job on the platform. Very cool! How about a pic of your dogs?

    Roof Rail Help

    Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new van. Looks great! I like the color. There are numerous threads regarding roof racks - OEM, aftermarket and everything in between. Some already have factory roof rails and are looking for racks, others are starting from scratch. Use the SEARCH feature in the upper right corner of the page. Below is a link to a thread I posted regarding my install for a cargo model. I also included links to other roof rack threads posted at that time (11/2017) Since you have a wagon model you will need to remove headliner material to access the mounting holes.
  20. Yep. That was it. Replaced both rear shocks and no more banging noise. Thanks for the advice.

  24. Good job with the Uni-Strut. I've always thought that Uni-Strut could build almost anything.
  25. Dog crate project. We have a 16 LWB, we removed the third row of seats and built a platform that has storage underneath. Everything is easily removable in the event we would need to get a large item with the van. In fact the rear crates, platform and storage containers can stay in place when using the second row of seating for passangers. Since we have three dogs and the front crate (2nd part of this) project should be complete by the weekend, pictures to follow. The platform is made form aluminum uni-strut, closed cell foam tape, birch plywood and rubber matting underneath the crates make rattles non existent. Some pictures of the crates with the seats removed, the frame installed, second row seat up and completed project.

    Hi there. A red light has just come come up on the dash, with the message DIESEL FILTER OVERLOAD. I've no idea what this means, but I was towing a trailer at the time. Any advice would be appreciated thanks.

    Your dealer could help. Your dealer doesn't want to help. Anybody could look through Ford's or Thule's catalog, and call tech support. Go to a store which sells camper shells, ladder racks, etc. It's what the sell. They will sell and install it for you.

    I've just replaced my old Connect with a newer model, but no Users Handbook. It looks as if I have to download it but I'd rather have a hard copy to flip through when necessary. Does anybody know if there is a handbook for 2012 Connect?
