Hello Everyone; (Belated Merry Christmas and Upcoming Happy New Year!)
It looks like I too am hit with the Water in the Trunk Issue. Never noticed it being out here in SoCal where it hardly rains in the High Desert.
Joegr, Thanks for your LS Knowledge and Insight re: the Tubes in the Trunk; I...
Thanks Joe! My Turn Signal is acting weird; Having to push that 'Ball Looking Socket; at times where the arm connects to the Steering Colum to keep working. This diagram helps as I was wondering if it was going to be involved with the Air Bag.. Like I need this kind of 'Take for granted'...
I feel your pain on this..
I'm not a Transmission guy at all!
If you found the problem great!!!
I couldn't respond to the earlier threads while I was driving... I didn't know if the verbiage in my 2005 LS Owner's Manual (Page 234) had anything to do with it or not in summary " This...
I just put the Mevotech brand brand Sway Bar Links on.. Thicker than Stock plus they come with grease fittings. Ordered from RockAuto Part #'s
MK80246 - Left Rear
MK80245 - Right Rear
MK80261 - Both Fronts
Thanks I hear you on the cooling parts.. Already replaced the Thermostat Housing and pipe, O-rings, Upper & Lower Radiator Hoses, Degas Bottle (Motorcraft) and connecting hoses...
I have in the trunk and not yet installed the a new OEM / Jaguar Water Pump, DCC Valve and hoses.. I'm thinking to...
Dale, thanks for sharing your experience with the windshield replacement. I'll stay away from Safelite; I did not know Pilkington was the OEM Factory Windshield. I have to replace my windshield on my 2005 LS; However, I'm thinking to get one from the LKQ Pick a Part (Los Angeles) when a 2004 -...
Thanks JOEGR and sorry for the delay..
They're leaking from those weird connectors. (I'll need two as one was replaced already.)
In addition, the long small diameter hose from the Degas Bottle to the Thermostat Out
I hear you re: replacing ALL coolant related components. The Coolant leaking...
If it's not one thing it's another re: the 2005 LS V8 Cooling System.
I recently replaced the Degas Bottle (Factory Ford OEM) and now most of my hoses are leaking.
Primarily the two of the three hoses connecting the DCC Valve and Auxiliary Water Pump to the Metal Heater Lines. See Attached...
Thanks 04_Sport_LS and FDR..
I saw the cheap MEVOTECHs.. Then, I saw the 'Supreme' line of products.
The MEVOTECH's Front Links are priced higher than the Moog Premium.
Was wondering if anyone had any issues with the MEVOOTECH 'Supreme' product line.
Hope things are well..
Question: has anyone purchased and used the following Sway Bay Links manufactured by
Part #s Front: MK80246, MK80245
Rear: MK80261 (2)
Visually, they appear to be more solid with Polyurethane Bushings and Zerks..
They're sold on www.RockAuto.com...
Appreciate the clarification re coil packs
I'll watch my termonolgy as it could throw folks off.
Yes I'm dealing with the last bolt on the cop cover.
Going to find a 7mm racheted wrench thanks
Thanks Mr Roy,
Yes I removed that as well I think it's the evap / purge and/or silenoid value.
In addition I had to remove the air intake assembly so I could move back the Power steering resovior as well.
Will look for small 7mm mini ratchet wrench... Appreciate the support
Does anyone have the answer to removing the Driver's side Coil Pack Cover to removing the 7 MM Bolt (At COP # 8) extremely close to the Brake Booster?
I received a P0308 (#8 Coil Plug Bad) and I removed all the other Coil Pack bolts except for the above.
My 1/4 Ratchet and 7MM open...
I believe Member Name Hitte Performance was selling a Front Custom Aluminu6m License Plate Brackets for Lincoln LS. Are they still available??
If so, I would like to purchase one.CA requires a front plate Is the price still valid?
