  1. Looking for some help. Can anybody with a 2010-2013 stock Transit Connect with stock size wheels/tires and stock suspension measure the wheel well gap. The distance between the top of your tire and the bottom of the plastic wheel arch liner. Both front and rear. Preferably with stock 205/65-15 and not loaded down with cargo. If a few different people could do it to be able to get an average front & rear measurement that would be great! My van is currently still being worked on - so don’t have access to it. Thanks guys & gals!

    Just keep searching ebay. There is a rear set on there right now. They pop up from time to time. That's where I got mine from.

    2013 TC XLT Instrument removal help.

    No problem! Yes - they are led. There are some posts about it on one of the overseas Transit Connect pages on Facebook.

    What is this thing attached to my windshield?

    Probably not so much for driver navigation, but so that the company that owned the vehicle could track its location. So they could know where the vehicle was versus where it was supposed to be while out on service calls. Some company Big Brother action...Not 100% sure - just my two cents...

    Can't wait to see the updated pics/build sheet! Planning similar mods for mine in the future! Love your user name! Fits perfectly!

    2013 TC XLT Instrument removal help.

    Please post up what you find! I also don’t particularly care for the color of the instrument lighting.
  10. So it's been a month and a thousand miles since I purchased this thing. Mods so far...

    • Replaced the stock damaged roof antenna with an OEM replacement from eBay US.
    • Replaced the stock clear faded side marker indicators with aftermarket orange ones from eBay UK.
    • Replaced the stock peeling rubber steering wheel with a used one from a Ford C-Max from eBay DE.
    • Got the front windows tinted from a local guy - Adkins Tint Shack in Mount Airy, NC.

    Other than that - I have just been cleaning the *!@$ out of this thing when I have time...I have a couple of other little things in the works, but going to be a little while for those...


    Loving this weird little van!!!


  11. Thanks for the link! I have been searching when I have time. Still hard to find overseas sellers of OEM Ford parts that offer shipping to the US and have clear photos and descriptions. Many that I have contacted have simply never replied to my inquiries. Thanks again for your reply!
  12. New to me 2012 Ford Transit Connect XLT purchased Labor Day Weekend 2019.

  13. I just purchased my new to me 2012 TC earlier this month and have been searching through the forum looking for info on these tall mirrors. The fordpartsuk shop is now closed. Does anybody have a source for these? I have been searching the various overseas ebays without much luck. I would need the power/heated LHD versions. I would prefer new OEM Ford, but may also consider used in excellent condition or maybe even new aftermarket if they are good quality. If anybody has any info please let me know! Thanks!
  14. I just purchased my new to me 2012 TC earlier this month. All of this is shown in the owners manual. Mine is an XLT with fogs. On my headlight switch: Rotate right one position - parking lights on. Rotate right second position - headlights on. Pull out towards you one position - front fogs on. Pull out towards you second position - front & rear fogs on. You can turn the fogs on in either the parking or headlight position, but you cannot have the rear fogs on alone. The tach side of the instrument cluster shows the front fog icon and the speedo side shows the rear fog icon when activated.
