It is indeed the cam phasers rattling on startup.
It's a 'cosmetic' issue (safe to still drive with the noise on startup) that effects several different Ecoboost engines.
Dealership is ordering parts to repair.
I believe this sound has been there the entire time and...
They seem to be asking a "very reasonable" $90K for this thing...
You'll be the talk of whatever mall you choose to crawl! :ROFLMAO:
Quite the trail this year. I've done the back way to Crown King several times, but this spring I would rate it a solid 7.5, almost an 8. Got through in about 4 hours though which is pretty quick.
Just a quick hello from the entry!
Noticed a Bronco Sport pulled off to the side of the road with the hood COMPLETELY open - think Wrangler with the hood resting on the windshield.
I wasn't aware of the Bronco Sport having that feature.. Stopped to offer assistance and it was a nice young lady and her daughter stuck on the...
Anyone find the factory DC to AC inverter yet - and/or have the wiring diagram? Mine has been acting up and want to take a gander at it before losing my vehicle for a week waiting for the service dept to look at it. Not the fastest turn around right now.
Something about charging my DJI drone...
I wanted to try this stuff out for a bit before mentioning it..
If you have a MIC top that is popping, squeaking, slight leak or any other related problems - try this stuff (or anything like it)
This also gets rid of that annoying "mining" sound that TFL made so much noise about...
My experience is in solid front axle vehicles. Just realized I'm not sure where the fill port is on the Badlands for the front differential.
Am I going to have to remove skid plates or am I missing something?
I just need to peek and make sure the fluids arent contaminated. Or do I?
I was startled awake at 230am last night to a drugged out lady ringing my doorbell and then immediately running and hiding behind my vehicles, waiting for me to open the door.
I instantly pulled up my exterior security cameras and my dash cam to see what was going on. From the dashcam I could...
UPDATE: This compressor was under water for 5-6 hours today and turned on 15 minutes later to air my tires up. Runs like new.
Don't ever doubt ARB. Ever.
Install done! Took me 3 days.
This isn't a full tutorial, that would really need to be in video format. LOTS of work to get it this...
After having a few people get a little TOO comfortable with the Bronco, I made the plan on replicating the Sentry Mode found in Teslas to the best of my ability.
DR900X PLUS 2 Channel with IR
DR750X PLUS 1 Channel
You could also use the DR750X PLUS 3 channel package for the same cost...
This is the lighting kit used.
TOTAL INSTALL TIME: 45 minutes.
(I know the guide is messy, consider this a beta until I figure out formatting to a tolerable level)
This is a "simple" guide to installing interior ambient lighting, as the Bronco w/hard top is VERY dark inside - especially once...
I don't know where people get the the idea that the Bronco cant flex.
This is sway bar disconnected and I still had plenty of room to travel.
Absolutely stellar day - @LikeToTurnLeft killed it in his own Bronco as well. More photos incoming from everyone involved today.
Just a random...
Mods: I've not seen anyone do this so let me know if it's against any rules.
I have a small trip lined up tomorrow to do Box Canyon at 0730 (Tuesday Nov 2nd). So far it's myself and another member, both in Badlands Sasquatch.
Trail is located 1 hour Southeast of Phoenix in Florence...
For the guys who've played in the rocks already, are you dragging your two rear recovery points on every obstical? I'm talking the factory points on the steel bumper.
I must've scraped them 4-5 times today. They really kill the departure angle when dropping down waterfalls/steps. The issue...
I'll add more later. Just had to share this view!
Broken Arrow in Sedona. Ran into a whole herd of Jeepers. They either acted like fan girls or my arch nemesis. The Bronco makes it all so easy.
The only thing that got more attention is my Jackson, my Golden Retriever puppy!
Well bois, I think I sent her a little too fu.. wait. Wrong post.
Oh, tailgate slash subwoofer rattle? Problem solved in 30 seconds or less, or you get your money back.
First, go open the tailgate and look above the subwoofer. There's a little panel like this:
Rip that mother off real...
(Ford is aware and in communication, so we don't need to keep pinging them)
Updated photo from this AM. My hands aren't Samsquatch in real life, that's just the zoom level. You can see the fuzzy look on the edge, and that wasn't there when I picked it up 5 days ago. You REALLY have to be...
I did the search thing, didn't see this. Just a quick PSA.. My Sas came with PSI WELL over factory specs (50+ psi) and I noticed it because the ride was fairly terrible. TPS saw it high and confirmed with ARB pressure gauge.
Dropping PSI to 39 (cold pressure) as stated on door sticker...
