Hi all I've been studying in the mechanics area for a while as I'm trying to get a job from it and I recently found out the some newer cars have the vin coded into the paint work and can't be re painted. Does anyone know if the fgx has this or can it still be repainted, thanks

I have a 2015 XR8 with 28500 km, I only drive it on the weekend as I have a work vehicle.

The clutch has started to slip and the dealer has advised it's got heat marks on the pads and they need to replace it and its not covered under warranty as its a wear and tear issue not a fault. It seems odd to me that it has worn out after so little driving, the car also has a heavy duty clutch in it as a performance vehicle and there is actually a feature for fast take off that I have tried once, Launch Control. Any ideas, suggestions, advice apart from BOHICA?

The other issue the vehicle has is the SYNC mobile phone connection system, it is really poor on "hearing" and interpreting instructions particularly for navigation. Is this anyone else's experience? Any suggestions to fix this one?

Hi, I own a 2016 fgx xr6 with 6 speed manual. It has 70,000km and since about 30,000km the clutch pedal vibrates when foot is placed on pedal while at idle and driving but as soon as I press the clutch in to change gears it’s fine. I do around 500kms a week and becoming undrivable. I have been to three different dealerships and all confirm clutch is fine and say it’s a common characteristic of this model but won’t fix it under warranty as they say it’s not a manufacturers defect. I think it’s a design fault and I am asking for a solution but dealerships are also saying if I replace clutch it will go away for 6-12 months and will happen again. Ford Australia won’t help me and also keep saying the same thing. Can anyone help me?

Hi

I own a Fgx 2014 xr6 manual

I had what sounds like a similar issue and whilst I had some work done on the clutch, it was subsequently diagnosed as a tail shaft centre bearing

The independent did a great job on the diagnosis. They pulled the tail shat out, sent it to a machine shop. The shaft was fixed at both ends and re fitted

The car now goes great again. All up just over $500 , but worth it.

Cheers

Can I please ask what the headlight strength of the FG X XR6 is for open road driving? I have a BF XR6 and those headlights are amazing. Thinking of jumping to FG X. Thanks in advance

Mine were terrible when I first got both of my FGXs. I had the dealer re-aim them and now I find them to be fine. Factory aim was pretty poor unforunately.

I live in the NT and with the for lights and high beams on driving in the outback I found it to be sufficient.

Hi, I have a 2014 fgx ute with 40000kms. The transmission doesn't take up immediately occasionally. Disconcerting if you expect to go forward at an intersection and there is a slight delay. Also when under hard acceleration there is quite a delay when changing up through the gears. Any Ideas ?.

Also recently I plugged in a hire trailer, Now the indicators dont work and I get a fault saying their is a blown bulb. They all look OK, as does the fuse for this circuit. Any ideas.?

How do I turn off the automatic door lock?
The doors lock when the car reaches approx 20 km/h

4 answers

Easy job and only costs About $1700 - plus it voids your warranty and may void an insurance claim.

Go into menu on your icc it should be in your main settings

Drive by wire fault most likely.
Get a real mechanic under the hood and he'll probably tell you the same.

Hi all recently bought an xr8 ute 03 model, has 130 thousand KMS, had it about a month havent driven it hard at all, maybe a squirt here and there, didn't buy it to flog it, anyway I think in the month I've owned it the coolant may has gone down a little bit, can anyone give me an insight to where it could be going cause it can't be much I'm losing, and any thing else to watch? Cheers

1 answer

Well it would be rare for any Ford engine to lose coolant anywhere except; hole in hoses or the dreaded transmission milkshake.
Get it checked quick, especially to make sure t/fluid isn't mixing with coolant at the radiator end

Have 2016fgx xr6 that occasionally makes a droning noise ford tells me that it is common,does anyone know what it is or how to fix it?

1 answer

If you have a window or sunroof open it would be normal.
Apart from that, usually wheel bearings are the cause.

Stevie1810asked

Have a fg g6 the control screen will not work, is that the battery playing up?

1 answer

The battery is usually one of the problems.
Disconnect the battery overnight, reconnect in the morning and all factory defaults will be restored.
If you still have no dcreen, a visit to an AE or Ford dealer may be needed.

Can the auto wiper function be turned off in the FGX and just have intermittent wipers?

no you cannot but you can adjust the timer like intermediate wipers so they can be really slow or really fast

I've tried every setting but they are just random, wiping too much one min then not enough the next. Thanks for your answer.

I wish I could. The sensors on the FGX don't seem to sense the very light rain we often get, can't use full speed wipe because it's too light for that. "Adjustment" is tricky, read your manual because it works back to front to previous models.

Yes,the FG-X's have rain sensing wipers so they should.

Eventually, if the rain is heavy enough.

Mine don’t. The sensor has failed twice in two years and now no intermittent function at all
