  1. Your head unit with that screen and the controls will come out. The new dash kit will install a conventional double din head unit. You will need the dash kit which does not have a cutout for the smaller display screen. It will only have an opening for the double din stereo you want to install. Now good luck with getting everything OEM to work with your new aftermarket head unit. You'll probably lose back up camera display, and other OEM information. Your OEM head unit is designed to work with the car and it's various computers and controls. Just think that everything which you can do with the OEM unit, will be lost, and you will gain whatever your new head unit offers.

    As this is an OBDII adapter which works, it's also on sale.

    11 Ford Transit Connect TPMS learn mode

    I think you will need to relearn the sensors. I don't think you will install them in the original position. Sensor battery life is questionable. Some say 5 years. Some say 100,000 miles. No consistency. Ford says nothing. I don't think Ford has ever promised any kind of service life. They usually last the new car warranty. Then it's a service item. You replace them as needed. No free sensors under warranty. At least I have never heard of free tire sensors. I am still using OEM sensors on my 07 F-150. They still work.
  6. 1st, check the harness. Pull the bulb off, and look inside. Is it burnt out? Is there corrosion?

    Interesting bends with the exhaust pipe routing.

    Kumho's, WalMart and Goodyear Viva 3's

    I'm at 33,000 miles, and I really believe that I could get 50,000 miles. At least another year of driving. But didn't another forum member wear the OEM tires out by 30,000 miles? Driving style and environment have a lot to do with it. You can probably get more miles with good roads.
  9. Tint is 1 of those jobs where a lot of people mess up. It looks and sounds easy. Then you find out why they charge what they charge.

    Help! I'm stuck in Park

    Glad to read that you found the solution. Now we can file this for the next owner. This is 1 of those instances where the cheap stuff doesn't work, and you have to use OEM.

    Power adders for 2.5L

    You can try to fabricate an intake. Remove the OEM box, then add a cone filter. OEM air box scoops air from front grille. Intake air temperature is about 10 degrees above ambient at freeway speed. An open cone filter will probably give more hot air, as opposed to a cold air intake. Find a shop to Dyno Tune, and you might get something. I don't think there's anything you can do exhaust wise to make the pipe bigger. You can delete the resonator with a straight pipe. You will gain noise.

    Kumho's, WalMart and Goodyear Viva 3's

    Goodyear makes the Viva3 only for sale at Walmart. My concern is the load rating being 93H. But let us know how they work out. Inclement weather is right around the corner. They should be fine if you do not carry the GVWR. I would probably spend an extra $25 to have the correct load rating. But that adds another $100 to the out the door cost. I'm looking at those tires that cost around $50. But who knows how reliable or safe those cheap tires are. At 33,000 miles, my OEM tires still look great. I keep them inflated, and rotate them. At this rate, they could last 50,000 miles.

    Torque Lite & Torque Pro

    I bought the OBD connector from Amazon. I am not a fan. With Torque Pro, the home screen is unresponsive, the app does not load to work, and then it crashes. With Forscan, it shows that the connector is bad.
  15. After years of trying different lamps on different cars, I have learned a little. Almost every "brand" comes from a handful of factories in Shenzhen, China. That's why most look similar. The factories will produce for different vendors and label the package with different brands. Some of the "brands", are actually the same company, using multiple brand names for market share. Some brands have been around longer, are established, and not "fly by night". Those sellers will be around in case you have a problem. What that usually means is that they will replace your product or refund the purchase so you will not be at a total loss. If you buy something for a lower cost, it probably came from the same factory. If it works, you won't have a problem. The current lamps I am using in my pickup truck and van; the sellers no longer exist under those brand names. They are still working flawlessly. I got lucky. Buying from Amazon, you get the A to Z Guarantee. From eBay, you're not getting that level of product support. So if the listing on Amazon shows a 1 year warranty, and the seller no longer exist, you can still file a claim with Amazon for a refund. Some of the brands which have been around are BeamTech, Yita Motor, JDM AStar, SiriusLED. Not that it means much, but some brands do have their own websites outside of Amazon & eBay, with a product selection guide. Neither Sylvania or Phillips sell LED headlights. https://www.siriusledlights.com/pages/product-result?rq=yr_2016~mk_ford~md_transit-connect~ft_base-model~nm_low-beam-headlight-bulb https://www.beamtechs.com/ https://www.yitamotor.com/pages/product-result?rq=yr_2016~mk_ford~md_transit-connect~px_exterior-lights~kj_titanium-mini-passenger-van-4-door~uc_1-6l-1596cc-97cu-in-l4-gas-dohc-turbocharged
