Well, there's your problem!



Turns out when I tightened the spoiler onto the car, I squished the hose. All is well now! Also, this nozzle sprays WAY more fluid / better than my standard light ever did.

EDIT: Weather permitting, clean car picture uploads tomorrow. :)

The ones you posted showed up a lot, but they weren't to my liking, I liked the stainless steel look. I think they'd look good if you like that kinda design. It just didn't appeal to me, though. I did buy the dead pedal separately though. I think some sets came with it, but you'd have to check that out,

You have the wrong dead pedal. Yours is for a fusion. The focus one is smaller.

It fits fine, it's just the tape they used is inadequate for the design.

Ok, after 2.5K miles and a month of ownership, here she is all decked out. ’13 Ingot Silver SE HB (run 2), manual, PZEZ, 201a, moonroof, winter package. Also added splash guards, tint (Llumar w/35% rears/hatch and 50% fronts), Weather Tech front floor mats (to get the dead pedal cover), Weather Tech Plate Frame (rear only), Ford cargo area protector, K&N drop-in, a set of Yakima roof racks for 2 bikes including the fairing, and finally, some stickers to personalize it!

So far so good….runs like a top, no rattles, no issues. Getting around 30 mpg combined city/highway with as much as ~35 on pure highway and as low as the mid-20s pure city so the EPA estimates on this car seem fairly accurate to me. The racks probably cost me at least 3 mpg on the highway. I really like the Sync system for using my iPod and streaming Pandora from my Samsung Galaxy 3s as well as the obvious use of the phone hands-free.

All and all, the car is fabulous for the ~$20K I paid.

Did my projector retrofit version 1. Going to redo them once the black projector shrouds arrive. And smoke the signal lenses.

Those look really good man! What black projector shrouds are you getting and how easy was it for you to open the headlights?

The headlights took all of 10-15 min for both lol! They were the chrome halogen lights from Rdc (Rebel Devil Customs) on this site. They use old school butyl that 2 passes with a heat gun you can just pull them apart. I used morimoto h1 projectors from TRS (the retrofit source) and I'm going with the graphite shrouds they sell.
