    Sylvania LED bulbs for brake lights.

    2012 transit... 1st gen. the fog lights are turned by pulling out the headlight switch while in the 'headlight on' position. you will get a nice orange 'fog' indicator light on the dash board display.. I actually dont have fog lights, (on the list) . but pulling out the switch energizes the lights in the back,, making the truck more visible to following vehicles...i think i am going to use this feature routinely at night...
  2. I had to change a burned out Brake light bulb so i thought i would try LEDs. Sylvanias were a direct fit, and the package said (in small print) for off road use only.... they don't seem any brighter (its a sunny afternoon) so i guess i will try them out for a while then get back. Oh, while checking out the tail lights I discovered that the bottom set of lights come on when the FOG setting is on....nice to know....I still haven't bled the brakes... seems all i have read and seen on Youtube, indicates vacuum method at the wheels is fine,,, as long as you DO NOT get air in the ABS pump....
  3. I am ready to bleed the brakes on my TC... no issues really, just routine preventative maintenance. i have read conflicting opinions on the procedure for bleeding ABS brakes. ( i use vacuum pump at each wheel, bleed slowly and top up the master frequently. this works well for all my previous cars but none had ABS...any thoughts?
  4. I have been enjoying my time with my . RED TC 2012! pleased with its drivability and decent fuel economy. Last week i was doing under hood clean up and found BAD rusting under the caulked front edge of the hood .. i scraped away the caulk and found this: cleaned and scraped loose rust and applied several ´╗┐coats of Rustoleum Rust Preventer. I will keep an eye on whether or not it really stops the rust as advertised....members might want to check this area... i assume i am not the only one with this issue...

    GOT IT!!!

    Thanks everyone! i will try the Osram Nightbreakers!!
  7. Decided to buy the Gen 1 Connect XLT I was looking at! ( 2012, RED, with 39k on the clock, super well maintained) . thank you all for feedback on my earlier questions. so far its all good, i have a short list of things I want to do... soundproofing and 'rattle chasing' being pretty high on the list. also want to remove and replace bulbs with Cree LEDS... pics when i get a chance...
  8. HelloI am new to Forum.. I have test driven a 2012 TC XLT cargo. everything works as it should and it is low miles. It has a LOT. of rattles and 'noises from the front and back as it goes over rough pave. i kind of expected that, but the most concerning is a 'clunk' from the right front.. ( bad strut???) . the sales guys said the mechanics checked out everything after i mentioned this on first drive. he said everything ok... no better on second drive.... i am ok with rattles, but the Clunk worries... any thoughts?
