SOURCE: 2008 Ford Fusion Wing Mirror Replacement

I checked Ford Focus mirror replacement and it seems to be the same. This is for the manual, unheated mirror.

Remove the mirror cover inside the door - slide a screwdriver behind the cover and pry loose carefully.

Remove the single 10mm bolt and the mirror comes free.
NB. Do not drop the bolt into the door.

SOURCE: what tools do i need to replace front pads and

Check this two proedures for...

How to Replace Brake Pads
Parts:
1. Brake Pad Set

Tools:
1. C-Clamp
2. Flat Head Screwdriver
3. Jack Stand Set
4. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
5. Combination Wrench Set
6. Tire Iron
7. Socket Set
8. 1/4 in. Drive Torque Wrench
9. Dial Indicator

Supplies:
1. Brake Cleaner
2. Brake Lubricant

Steps:
Step 1 Secure your vehicle on a level surface, making sure your car will not roll or lean too much when jacked up.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.

Step 2 Remove the cap from the brake master cylinder. Using a turkey baster, remove a quarter of the brake fluid from the master cylinder. Lift up the front of your vehicle using a floor jack.
o Tip: Using an aftermarket floor jack, instead of the original equipment (OE) jack, can make the job easier and safer. Verify the condition of the floor jack before use.

Step 3 Secure the vehicle with jack stands on both sides for safety before starting any work. The pinch welds and the frame are the two best locations. Do not rely on the jack to hold the vehicle up while working.
o Tip: Try to find a flat, level, and strong surface to put the jack stands.

Step 4 Remove the front wheels by removing the lugs nuts that are holding them on. To do this you will need to find the correct size socket and large ratchet or tire iron and turn them counter clockwise. If your vehicle is equipped with hub caps (plastic covers over the wheels), these will need to be removed to access the lug nuts.
o Tip: It is a good idea to try and break the lug nuts free before you jack the wheels off the ground. This way they you will not spin the front wheels or put stress on the transaxle.
o Tip: Lug nuts fasten the wheel to the hub and may be on very tight. To gain more leverage, use a breaker bar to loosen the nuts.

Step 5 Inspect the brake rotors for scoring, grooves, cracks and discoloration.

Step 6 Remove the brake caliper mounting bolts.

Step 7 Slide the brake caliper off of the brake rotor.
o Tip: If the brake rotors are worn and there is a big lip preventing the brake caliper from sliding off easily, gently pry one pad back into the brake caliper to clear the lip and make removal easier.

Step 8 Support the brake caliper up and away from the working area. Make sure you do not kink or pinch any brake lines. Do not disconnect the brake line.
o Tip: Use a bungee cord to secure the brake caliper out of the way and hang it on the suspension spring.

Step 9 Remove the brake pads from brake caliper.

Step 10 Compress caliper piston using a C-clamp.

Step 11 Install the new brake pads in the brake caliper.

Step 12 Reinstall the brake caliper.

Step 13 Torque the brake caliper mounting bolts to manufacturer’s specifications. Repeat for other side.

Step 14 Install wheels and torque to manufacturer’s specifications.

Step 15 Refill the brake fluid in the brake master cylinder and reinstall the cap.

Step 16 Road test vehicle, break in new pads.

o Tip: To break in pads and rotors refer to manufacturers recommendations. Some companies have different procedures for pad and rotor break in.

I have a 2008 Ford Fusion and the seat belt chime goes off all the time even if the seat belt is worn. How do I fix that?


This veh has an airbag system and that lamp system is part of it. It is not recommended for one without the proper training to attempt to diagnose or repair due to the danger of setting off the airbags.
It needs to be scanned by a shop that has a scanner that is capable of scanning the RCM (Airbag System)system.

Chances are the seat belt buckle switch is bad or switch is unhooked. that would require replacement or re-connection.
if you try and look at it for connection be sure and unhook the neg battery cable and wait about 15-20 min for the back reserves to deplete in the RCM.

Here is a wiring diagram of the seat switch. Drivers and passenger side.

Adjust belt tension


Ypur Ford has a self adjusting (non-adjustable) belt tensioner. If the belt is from 2008, you wouldn't go wrong replacing it. However, if it is really loose, either your tensioner spring has crapped out or the belt has been routed incorrectly. A diagram under your hood should show the proper routing of the belt. Good luck.

Bolt backed out of idler pulley in my 2008 ford fusion what do I need to do to put my new pulley in


You need a serpentine belt tool, you can rent one at the parts place and while you are there get the new idler. You will also need a wrench to fit the bolt. Remove the belt then take the bolt out of the idler and install the new one, you can use some low strength loctite purple to keep this from happening again. Reinstall the belt, return the tool and get your money back for the rental.

When do I change the timing belt on a 2004 Ford Fusion?


believe the Fusion has a timing chain and not a belt. but the owner's manual under maintenance can tell you when either service is required.

I wanted to know if my 2008 Ford Fusion has a timing belt and when it should be changed. I have read my manual but it doesn't have anything about the timing belt.


Most car manufacturer advised to replace the timing belt at 100,000km/ 2years which ever comes first
But most car owner changed their timing belt at about 80,000km. they dont wait for a hundred thousand.

When should you change the timing belt


well I think its around 60,000 miles for most vehicles but if it is going bad, i would change it asap! but it verys from vehicle to vehicle. If you have the owners manual for your vehicle, it should detail when the belt should be changed.

A good general rule of thumb is that a timing belt should be changed every 60,000 to 75,000 miles, although some belts are designed to last up to 100,000 miles before requiring a change. Regardless though, it is best not to let a belt go more then 80,000 or so. have a good day !!

I am trying to find out what maintenance needs to be done on my 2008 ford fusion. It has 42000 miles on it.


The best place to get this answer would be the user manual. If you no longer have the user manual get the Haynes Repair Manual for your vehicle from the local auto parts store. This manual will have all your scheduled maintenance and instructions on how to perform the maintenance yourself.

Is anything required to be done to the motor prior to 100,000 miles


You have to check the scheduled maintenance in the owners manual. At different points in mileage, any car or truck with a timing belt will have it replaced before it breaks. There are other things they emphasize too, but all are different.
