    What does this do?

    That will turn the Lane Keeping System on/off, which is part of the Technology Package. If you don't have that option, the switch probably does nothing.

    Not everyone takes a picture of their new car in a cemetery. Visiting or reserving?

    Have been lurking for weeks, great forum. ironically it all started when I heard about the Genesis g70 coming out. I was going to own this car, it had everything I wanted. However it seems the entire world can buy this car when Genesis USA has been teasing for the last 5 months with no official release date. Very frustrating. Never had such a hard time having someone take my money. Checked their site everyday. Anyhow, the mkz came on my radar. Gorgeous car, tons of tech, power and even takes reg gas. Pretty big deal as premium cost almost $1 more a gallon, $18 more per tank vs reg. Yes, the mkz was twin turbo 6 is cheaper to drive than the turbo 4 and genesis. Go figure. Have been visiting Lincoln dealers and found a cpo 2017 3.0t awd. Midnight blue, sport package and tech package. Only 8k miles. Looks and smells new. Was a FL car too so it never has seen snow or salt. What an amazing car. Quiet, smooth, powerful and with seats you never want to get out of. The cpo warranty is insane. Bumper to bumper 100k or 6yr from original date of purchase. This is better than the new warranty! What a classy car. So far only concern is the thirsty engine. Let’s hope gas does not go to $5 per gallon again. Will see how that settles down one I start my routine. So far with about a quarter tank under my belt 50/50 hwy and city getting 18mpg per the computer. My usual habits will be 80% hwy and 20% city once the work week starts. Do know it is 400hp but I am coming from a Mazda CX-5 so I am use to getting 28mpg combined. But wow does this make me smile. irony is that the g70 still has no release date and the price ranges from rumors 35k to 50k. Funny thing is that the price I paid for a pretty loaded mkz is what a 4 cylinder g70 is estimated to cost. Sounds strange to say but I am not mad that the mkz deprecated so much the first year. My gain. Car was originally spaced at 54k! first task is to update the sync 2.0 to 3.0, no idea why the dealer didn’t have this done already.

    They do what they're meant to do on muggy days- keep your hind end from adhering to the seat. They don't feel like they do much but turn them off and drive for an hour straight and you'll notice the difference.

    First time I took a friend for a ride in my MKZ we amused ourselves by going back and forth spouting off nonsensical stories and quotes from Texas Chainsaw Massacre- The Next Generation in our best McConaughey voices.

    2014 cabin air filter

    Here's another video, I think it's a little better explaining the procedure. He also says it's the same with the 2017 MKZ. Disposable filter is my choice too.

    2014 cabin air filter

    Hi evo. My personal opinion? Just purchase the inexpensive disposable cabin air filter. Then when you change it, you can simply stick the new one in and close everything up. With a reusable cabin filter, you would need to remove and clean it before you can reinstall. A disposable filter makes it a ~15 - 20 minute job instead of ~1 - 1 1/2 hours with a reusable (cleaning, washing, drying, treating etc.). Again, just my own opinion. Additionally, I found this instructional how-to video on cabin filter removal for 2013-2016 MKZ's. It may also apply to the 2017-2019, but I have not checked my car yet to verify. Along with drolds1's excellent write-up and pictorial further above, I thought it might be helpful (EDIT - fusionff beat me to it, but I took a look at my car and yes, the cabin air filter change procedure looks to be the same for the 2017-2019 MKZ models): Good luck. 🙂

    Recommend to me please!

    Drilled and slotted rotors are not going to give you any noticeable difference in braking performance in a street-driven car. In fact, drilled rotors have been known to develop cracks around the holes. If you're looking for modest improvements, look at some of the high-performance street pads like EBC.

    3.0T turbo?

    If the car is running they are spinning, even at idle. The exhaust gasses are what spins the impeller. the more gasses the faster it will spin. When the turbo starts to put out more volume than the motor is taking in, then you start getting into boost. In other words the intake system starts to pressurize and the intake charge is force feeding your cylinders. Hence more air, more fuel, equals more power.

    Indeed. My 2010 didn't have the screws and I immediately broke one of the plastic tabs off the first time I changed the filter. ;)

    Two 12 inch Rockford Fosgate P3 moved by a 1200 watts Rockford Fosgate mono amp. The name says it all it will rock. To bad the name is not RockLincoln. HaHa.

    Work in progress, eliminating the sub box and adding two 12 inch shallow Rockford Fosgate on each side of the trunk. Will bypass the oem amp of the MKZ with the LC7i to use the 4 channel Boss amp for the door speakers and rear deck speakers. The two 12 subs will be pushed by the Prime Rockford Fosgate 1200.

    2014 cabin air filter

    I changed the filter the other day. Fear not. It's a pretty easy job for even the non-mechanically inclined. After emptying the glovebox, snap off the side panel from the IP. As stated above, an automotive trim tool or thin screwdriver will help with this but I was able to grab it from below with my fingers and just pull it off. Next, remove the two 7mm bolts form the top of the glovebox. The one on the left is shown Now you can pull the whole assembly straight back and free from the IP. You'll need to use both hands for this. I needed my other hand to hold the camera. ;) The white material on top of the glovebox looks to be some kind of insulation or sound-absorbing material. It's glued on so I left it. They had to have a reason for putting it there. With the assembly out, you can see where the two bolts go into the top edge. There's an electrical connector for the glovebox light. It's not necessary to unplug it for this job. Just carefully lower the assembly down. Once the assembly is out of the way, you can see the filter housing. There are screws on either side of the housing door with dabs of yellow paint (factory markings). Remove the two (philips) screws. There are plastic retaining tabs on either side of the door. Push them out towards the respective sides of the car to release the door. Pull the door down to expose the filter. Three hands would help here. Pull the filter out. You can already see how much crud is caught in it before it's out. Slide the new filter in. Again, this is definitely a two-handed job. The filter is rather flexible. Side-by-side comparison. You can certainly see the difference. There was all matter of flora and fauna caught in there. For informational purposes, I'm at just under 19,500 miles and I live in the Northeast. I went a little long on this one. I usually go about 15K between changes. YMMV. Reverse everything and button her up. I had a little trepidation beforehand but it actually was easier than in my earlier MKZs.

    2010 left tail light

    Hi Steve, Can you share details about the letter? I also have a 2010 with tail light issues. Left only lights the center row even when brakes are applied. Right has all three rows on bright (as if brakes were applied) as soon as lights are turned on. Thanks! Rich

    If it has its own microphones, can't you dampen them? Wrap them in foam or some sound deadening material
