  1. Ok, thanks for your help and advice Mondeoman.
  2. I did email CTA motorsports as well, they said they don't deal with Addco, and don't have any stock on the BAT bar.
  3. I went to Chilliwack Ford with that number, they couldn't find the bar diameter, regardless it is discontinued. I went with a used 18mm bar from pick-a-part for $25. I used energy suspension graphite imbedded polyurethane bushings that I've had sitting on my spare parts shelf. I've driven over 600km since swapped and there is a definite noticeable handling improvement. I'm happy with this $35 upgrade(Bar & Bushings). With only a one millimeter increase in thickness, I wonder how much more a BAT or Addco bar could improve handling. Does anyone have experience with either? Also do either com
  4. My current 17mm bar is worn down to 15mm on the right frame to bushing location. Mounting points are all ok, just loud knocking is driving me crazy. I drive 210Km daily for school right now and would like to improve handling as well. It's too bad they're discontinued. I've been to two local auto dismantlers and looked at 33 contours, mystiques and cougars combined and there weren't any bigger than 18mm. I emailed BAT, they don't have any 21mm bars right now and don't know when they'll have any, they told me to try back in three months. I only have found one local supplier of addco 7/8" bar(lor
  5. Does anyone know the part number for Ford 19mm rear stabilizer bar? Or have a car that has the rear 19mm bar stock?
  6. Hi Terry, I replaced the front right wheel bearing on Tuesday and now the car drives so smooth and quiet, I don't ever remember it being so quiet, also my fuel economy improved by 2mpg(at 29mpg-according to my mileage calculator app- on my last two tanks of gas since I changed the bearing, I hope it stays there)! Once I removed the steering knuckle/hub/bearing assembly it was very apparent it was a bad bearing, very rough feeling when spinning it. I must not have been able to feel this roughness on the axle because I had the resistance and noise of turning the differential gear
  7. that would be great if you could find it. Thanks, Darcy
  8. Hi, I found this partial TSB, does anyone have more info. on it? 2000 Ford Contour Suspension Service Bulletin 107380 NHTSA: Action Number: 630024 Service Bulletin Number: 107380 Report Date: Jan 01, 2002 Component: Suspension Summary: Some vehicles may exhibit a noise that appears to come from the front wheel bearings. *tt Thanks, Darcy
  9. Hi, I am hoping you can help me with diagnosing this issue. For about two weeks the symptoms my 1999 Ford Contour SE 2.5L, CD4E has been experiencing are: Road noise(sounds like tire noise fairly loud and definately noticable especially after turning to right then returning to center) starts at about 45km/hr and maintains loudness as speed increases. It is hard to tell, but I would say it is coming from the front because the steering wheel and turn signal stat vibrate slightly. Noise goes away completely in right turns then as I return to center steering position the sound comes back
  10. Kleenflo Injector Kleen Part #695 went from 17-18mpg to a solid 27-28mpg with no change in driving habbits!, I must have had a plogged injector or something? For under $5 it worth a shot. Had tried several other brands of fuel injector cleaners with minimal results.
  11. Hey Red Rocket. If you have a multimeter..(or get one for cheap). Turn the ignition switch to ON position with ENGINE OFF. Shift into Reverse. Remove Reverse bulb from socket. Check for power at socket. If present, Replace Bulbs. If power is not present. trace wire back to reverse switch(in shifter console) check for power at plug.
  12. Check with dealer where it was installed?.. Search google for code 11 on pats? I googled code 11 on ford PATS found 11 No connection between module and transceiver coil 1. Check transceiver coil and wiring condition 2. Check engine ECU multi-plug connection Hope that can help. ~Darcy
  13. I ordered some 120 led 9005 bulbs for the high beam/daytime running lights. The problem is that they need full power and they don't work for the daytime running lights because there is not enough voltage to them. Does anyone know where the resistor for DRL is located? is it in the DRL Relay? is it a resistor wire? what does it look like. Thanks, Darcy
  14. Aww, that's a shame that it can't be adjusted. Thanks for letting me know! ~Darcy
