I bought mine several years ago, and seems like they were sold in pairs for less, but I don't have the receipt.

Re: TSB 13S04 - Fuel leak

Thanks, Domain. I used your recall checker, which I didn't even know existed. It showed that my '10 T has a recall for LICENSE LAMP ASSEMBLY REPLACEMENT. I've not received anything from Ford by mail or e-mail, and I've had the car in for service at a number of dealers over the past 3 years. They've ...

Re: New Tires?

When I first bought my Taurus, I was worried about tire replacement, because not many manufacturers were making the odd size 19". Back then a set of replacement Goodyears was around $1500! And I was reading that some of you were experiencing early take-offs. But now there are a lot more choices avai...

Re: Wiper Blades

2011 Taurus SEL - I thought you were crazy when you were talking about "proper orientation" of wiper blades! But when I put new wiper blades on a couple months ago, there was a void in the down-swipe on the driver's side which I've never experienced before. I took your advice and reversed the blade ...

Audio A/C Screen

One of the things that really bugs me about my T is the lens/screen that displays the radio/stereo, A/C, clock, and outside temp settings. Most of the time I can’t read them, because they’re too small or the sun light blocks them out. My windows are tinted to the max for what California allows. Does...

Re: gas mileage

HOLY COW! Just when I thought I had topped out at 27.4 in average MPG, I got the surprise of my life. Took the T on a 1700 mile trip through Nevada, Oregon, Idaho, and Washington. On the leg North from Oregon into Idaho, I hit 27.6 average MPG. And then coming back from Oregon into California, I hit...

Re: gas mileage

I use my 2010 T primarily as a "jet sled" for road trips and my other car for around-town driving. During the past two months, I've been driving to a lot of my grandson's baseball games which have been 3 - 4 hours roundtrip, mostly freeway driving. My T has topped out now at 27.4 mpg which is the be...

Re: Heated and Cooled Seat Air Filter & Cabin Air Filter

There are four clips locking the cover in place (2 upper & 2 lower). Using a flat head screw driver, pry the bottom clips forward until they release or pop loose. (Use a medium size flat screwdriver with the handle in the middle of the filter and blade outward to pop the clips) The access door then ...

Re: Heated and Cooled Seat Air Filter & Cabin Air Filter

Really quite easy. From the back seat area, just reach under the rear-center of the front seat bottom cushion, and you can feel the filter hanging there. Just an eighth twist or so, and it drops into your hand. Replace the new one by feel also. Here's a photo of my old one at 40,000 miles. Although ...

I suppose you've reviewed all the many posts regarding this issue. I know I don't have the technical knowledge that you do about the chroming process - particularly plastic chrome. But when I took my 2010 in for defective chrome on my tail lights, I tried pressing my service people for original supp...

Re: 2014 Taurus Sunroof

Hmmmm. I've never had my sunroof open going those speeds, because it's just too dang noisy. Just use it in the evenings around town 35 - 40 mph. No problems then so I can't offer any solutions. :)

I've been buying the Goodyear blades when they're on sale at Costco. They come with instructions and adaptors for all installations and slide/clip right on (once you select the correct style F). Good luck.

Re: My car has lost its mind I think

"- When my front passenger exits, most times the door closing will cause the horn to sound twice in rapid succession" I think this is caused by the setting you have on your door locks, i.e., maybe you have it set so it only unlocks your driver's door when you shut the car off. So, if a front seat pa...
