The auto xls in my fleet is showing these warning lights on the dash. Can anyone assist please? Car has been back to ford twice and they say they can't find anything wrong with it. Theyve asked we bring it back when the dash lights are in. Problem is they come on and off regularly and never when its at the dealer. Cheers

You can get them fixed with a major repair. They vulcanize rubber. Just most tyre shops dont.

Trust me it can be done. I work in the tyre industry. I know here in SA theres only one mob that does it and its not a tyre retail store as such that does them.

Yeah, I agree. I had one almost new Mickey Thompson tyre with three punctures, two in the sidewall. My mate who used to run a Tyrepower shop sent it away and had it repaired. Was pretty cheap at the time as well.

Mate, I know I probably shouldn't suggest this, but if you really can't find anywhere to have it fixed, just put a plug in it and run it on the back. I will confess to having done that and then forgetting about it... for about 40,000km :shock:

thanks guys for the input. very much appreciated. fortunately i know a chick who knows a bloke who owns a bloke at michelin (bfg tyre owners here in vic). she gave me an order number, and i went direct to the michelin warehouse. i tell ya what ive never seen so many tyres in one bloody place. its the distribution warehouse for michelin ie bfg. wholey shiza! deadset i thought id died and gone to bfg heaven. anyway she also hooked me up with a fitter and got it sorted with a brand newie this arvo. fortunately its done bc im hitting the road extremely shortly for the ranger meetup weekend (horseshoe bend may 5-7 2017) recon trip. gunner run the proposed 4x4 route and catch up with butch. bloody wrong time to puncture a $550 bfg km2 (that was the replacement quote)!! chéers and 3 can long weekend friday ya'll!!

I am with Gerry, on the rear or as a spare, run it out. Have had a few tyres over the years with punctures like that and just was mindful of them, didn't run them on the front at all, and had no issues with them. ;)

i actually asked firmly for it to be plugged and used as a spare. both shops said recent change in law forbids it. ie no way. had several shoulder punctures over the years on past utes gottem plugged and drove them on the rear. no bloody luck today unfortunately. just p1ssed off bc at 9000km it was a brand new tyre with zero other damage. oh well.

Fitted the tailgate central locking conversion kit to my xls today. Confidently saying im an expert at this now... lol. Anyone wanting this mod and attending the annual ranger meetup may 5-7 at horseshoe bend im more than happy to help. A gold coin towards the rfds is a great payment method :roll:

Interestingly the actuator i fitted today was from jaycar made in China about $15, considerably quieter in operation than the $4 ebay item i fitted to my xlt. Also made in china. Anyway as long as it works! Cheers

I'd get rid of the flora and fauna before you roll into the dealership Linc, they'll try and say it was due to something spiking it- like a blade of grass... lol :roll: :mrgreen:

Yep about 20000km the clutch would've gone on the Hilux. :shock: Know what I would rather be replacing, and it doesn't require lying on your back under a car :roll: :lol:

Well done on getting it through as warranty Linc.
Was gonna suggest checking with wreckers for CV's as genuine are best but are up there with the price of indicator fluid. :lol: :mrgreen:

Bit disappointing... but still love the xls.

My tip- if you havent tested your sockets, givem a test preferably at the dealer! Cheers y'all
had the 230v module replaced today under warranty so all fixed however, after picking it up and driving away the drivers side window now doesn't do auto up and auto down. pain in the ar5e. back to the dealer again tomoz to get it looked at. annoying coz their were no window issues when I dropped it off this morning. :(
The auto up and down reset procedure is all in the handbook because not everybody likes the auto up and down so they can change it, easy peasy!
