    You like the front wheel drive?

    I am shopping for a new truck and was looking at them, but the front wheel drive worries me.

    Just not right for a work truck. Never had a front wheel drive vehicle.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?

    On my second transit now. There must be some adjustment they can make so the rears don't grab so hard. First one trashed the rear fast until they did something about to. This one I'm in now seems fine but nothing like the E350 rears. Those hardly ever ever needed changing.

    I got almost 80k (front and rear) on my last 2 Econoline's. From the guys that have the Transit's, the rears won't make it past 30k...
    I also think there's a recall on driveshafts on the Transit's too.

    I think the fuel door is attached to the bezel fits around the fuel filler pipe. There are screws that hold the fuel filler bezel in place. I would first remove the fuel cap and then the screws. The bezel and fuel door may come out as one piece. Also, remember the fuel door is connected to a cable that drops a metal stop half way along the sliding door track when the fuel door is fully open.

    No cable on mine. Is that on a small transit maybe?

    Transit fuel and DEF filler is on the lower B pillar just like the Mercedes Metris.

    Transit Connect has a regular round filler door in the passenger rear.

    Hope you got the extended warranty or the lease is only as long as the standard warranty?

    Couple of our 350 Transits have over 70000 and mine is close to 40 with no rear end problems. I think every one we have had a throttle body problem within the first 10000 miles.

    There is a recall on the driveshafts.
