    Squeaky trunk

    See this thread. The dealer fixed mine, but I don't remember what they did. It eventually came back anyway.

    Welcome to the Lincoln MKZ Forum

    Welcome, GRIP. Enjoy your MKZ.

    Backup Camera Display

    It's supposed to go into NIGHT mode automatically when the headlights come on, unless that setting's been turned off.

    Your post has been moved to an appropriate section of the forums. The Forum Help and Suggestions area is intended for questions and comments about the operation of the website itself. Questions about the MKZ should be posted in an applicable sub-forum. WRT your question, I can't find the post now, but IIRC, a member attempted to get this to work on pre-2017 MKZ some years ago but was unsuccessful.

    First time Lincoln owner - Shutdown bargain buy

    Welcome, Ross. It certainly is a shame that there will be no more MKZs. I've had 2 1st-gens, and I'm on my 3rd 2nd-gen. If they were still offering them, I'd likely get another. Lincoln has abandoned us. I'm not, and never will be, in the market for an SUV/CUV.

    How to Lift 2013 MKZ for Brake Job

    Yes. I realized that you don't have a 4-point chassis lift at your disposal. I only posted that illustration to reiterate the factory lift points. Here's a video that has some general tips. You could probably get away with putting the jack, with the puck, a little further back on the pinch weld from the lift point. It sounds like someone already did this before you.

    How to Lift 2013 MKZ for Brake Job

    These are the lift points as shown in the shop manual. Do not use any other points or components:
  8. Your question has been moved to a more appropriate section of the forums. The Site Feedback and Help section is intended for questions and comments about the operation of the website itself, not for anything related to the MKZ. WRT your question, you didn't specify, but since you have a Premiere, presumably, the engine is a 2.0T ICE. The purge valve is located under the intake pipe. See this video. It's a Fusion, but there's no difference for these purposes. Do you have a CEL?

    Headlight Assembly

    Is the headlight itself is still working? It could be a module or a wiring problem. A dealer, or independent shop with a proper scan tool, could pull a code, but of course, there'll be a diagnostic charge.

    Headlight Assembly

    Welcome to the MKZ Forum. Your question has been moved to an appropriate section of the forums. The Forum Help & Suggestions area in tended for questions and comments about the operation of the website itself, not for discussions about the MKZ. WRT your question, AFAIK, no portion of the headlight assembly is available as a separate part. What MY is your car? Mileage? Is it still covered under the 4/50 B2B warranty? Have you had this diagnosed by a dealer?
  11. Yup. Back in the day, a SA told my friend that his car pulling to the right was a safety feature; that if he fell asleep while driving, the car would go off the road instead of crossing into the incoming lane.
  12. I think your SA was incorrect. Ford stared using the BMS for the 2011MY. See here. This guy is a Ford tech.
  13. Brake maintenance mode is for service to the rear brakes only. It deactivates the EPB so that it doesn't accidentally engage and cause personal injury. Therefore, it wasn't necessary to do front brake service. There has to be another cause for your brake noise. Did you resurface the rotors and follow the manufacturer's break-in procedure?

    Oil Change

    Not to mention that they'll try to upsell you on all sorts of stuff you don't need or want. The web abounds with JiffyLube, etc. horror stories. Here's just one site
