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.

Is there a way to permanently disable the overdrive on my 1994 Ford f150


You should have an overdrive off button at the end of your gear shift lever. just switch it off and tape over the button. Or the wires from the button connect at the bottom of the shifter. The button is on or off, figure out which disengages the overdrive and either leave the circuit open or closed.

Manual transmission


The short answer, yes. M46 models with the type J or P overdrive (depending on year and market) require a certain level of oil in the overdrive. Additionally, the overdrive is a lot like a standard automatic transmission with one gear range in theory of operation. Therefore, the hydraulic properties of said transmission do come into play here, line pressure, shifting pressure, accumulator and piston function all work together to engage or disengage the unit. Always ensure the unit is disengaged before downshifting and of course, shifting into low reverse.

My 2008 Ford Taurus shifts rough, dealer says it's OK.


If your car is brand new (you are the first owner) or for some reason someone disconnected the negative battery cable then what is going on is your TCM (Transmission Control Module) is trying to learn and adapt to the way you drive. Until it fully compiles all of the data and can "learn" this it will shift rough. Give it 2-3 full weeks of daily driving. If after the 3rd week or so it still shifts rough then it is not storing info and there is a problem. If you are not the only person driving this vehicle then it will take longer for the car to adapt.
