  1. Yah, probly going to give it a try. I'm still hoping though to hear back from Ford about an actual steering wheel column extension, says here such a thing exists: https://www.ford.ca/mobility/adaptive-equipment/list-of-adaptive-equipment/steering-devices/
  2. I've come across these: https://www.suregrip-handcontrols.com/steeringwheelexten I might give them a try, though definitely not ideal for still reaching all the controls....
  3. I'm 6'7". I put the seat all the way back to get enough legroom but then I find the stearing wheel is too far away. This is the case for me on pretty much any car. I've heard about stearing wheel extensions elsewhere, and sounds like a lot of work that perhaps a job shop could do. I thought I'd ask specificaly here on the Transit Connect forum in case anyone has heard of anything. Thanks
  4. Does anyone know of a way (or company that can do it) to extend the steering wheel on the Transit Connect? I'm tall and push the seat all the way back but my arms aren't that long so I have to slouch forward to reach the stearing wheel even when it's telescopsed out all the way. Thanks, Bluega
  5. I'm in the same boat: 2014 with passenger sliding door taking on water. I've found my drain holes on the front doors, but can't seem to locate them on the sliding doors. Can someone take a picture? MattsTC, any chance you could provide a pic of where you drilled the new holes?
  6. Thanks DonShockley I think I found some that might work (seller says they will at least and they look right): https://www.ebay.ca/itm/FORD-TRANSIT-CONNECT-ANTI-THEFT-ALUMINIUM-CROSS-BAR-RACK-75-KG-LOADING-BLACK/223320694806?hash=item33fef36016:g:Zv8AAOSwdaVcN66C&vxp=mtr
  7. I looked through the menu and didn't see anything about sync. Curious... I thought all 2014 xlts had sync. Oh well, just glad there is a line in jack! Thanks
  8. I've got a 2014 XLT Ford Transit Connect Passenger Wagon and I'm wondering if it is equipped with Bluetooth. My understanding is that to setup Bluetooth you press the phone button and get a code to put in your phone. But when I press the phone button, all that happens is that the car radio is muted. Any suggestions on how I can figure out if I have Bluetooth? And if I do, then how might I get it working with my phone? Attached is a picture of the kind of radio system I have. Thanks, Sam
  9. I just found the post where this was already being discussed, I'll go tag along for that thread. I tried to delete this one but couldn't find a delete button...
  10. Hi, I just got my 2014 Transit Connect Passenger Wagon a few weeks ago and very excited to have found this forum! I plan to do all kinds of interesting modifications and will be happy to have people to share them with! Now for a question for you all: I have the OEM roof rails like in the picture below (I'm lacking the cross bars and don't want to pay the dealer $500 bucks for them!). There are no air gaps beneath them like on a lot of other cars. I'm thinking this could be an issue for some crossbars. Given this, does anyone know if these Turtle cross bars would work? https://www.amazon.com/Turtle-Brand-Transit-Connect-Cross/dp/B07VCBFM2L/ref=sr_1_12?keywords=ford+transit+connect+roof+rack&qid=1569264462&s=gateway&sr=8-12 Or perhaps someone knows of a cheaper and/or better option? Thanks, Bluega
