    Missing and Engine Cutting out

    have they replaced your main fuel filter ? i assume your "cogged gear" is a check engine warning light? the FORD dealer should have a computer diagnostic read out for a fault code, and should have had an intellegent explaination for you as to what the code(s) were ? if you basic fuel filter is clogged with sediment, moisture, all the normal diesel fuel nastyness that occurs, begin with that. Never hurts to have clean diesel filter(s) the problem you describe is dangerous, and if it occurs while your in the fast lane ?......... well lets just say the dealer should see your truckette again soon and repair it properly. Cheers from accross the pond c.d.

    if you have remote control keys - then yes - they damaged wiring running to the steering column area for the remote locking module - better get it to a FORD dealer for an accurate damage estimate and get yer insurance involved. Possible just a repair of the broken harness? but some disassembly will be needed, of course.

    Rear Door Panel Removal

    45220c is the storage/net in the rear doors which are included in the XLT Wagon Premium - which also has the rear side venting windows, and rear side interior trim panels covering the rear wheel humps from the brochure: "With the new XLT Premium, you also get a 4-speaker audio system, enhanced rear-cargo area trim including a storage pocket in the door, rear-quarter flip-open windows and more..."

    Interior rear view mirror vision

    I actually like the blind spot caused by the middle of the doors - being higher up than a passenger car - no more light glare - and with the privacy glass tint - no need for flicking the mirror to 'night' - following lights arn't an issue. I just keep scaning both outside mirrors - which you should do anyway as a good driver knowing what's around you at all times. The PDC (rear parking sensors) do a great job for backing. I'm sure if all of you think your headlight and fog lights aren't very good, go by your Owner's handbook - headlight alignment against a wall on level ground. Mine were way too low, and my fogs also way too low. You can reach up behind the lower chin lip to hand turn the plastic gear adjuster on the left side of the fog light housings (laying on yer back of course) enjoy your TC yes - i replaced my white fog bulbs with yellow bulbs (i think i'm in france)
