EB 4.0 ii

Can anybody advise on the following problem, electric window is making a grating grinding sound when operated, sounds like rocks down there, is it the motor or something else, also I want to do an exhaust upgrade , and was thinking of a JMM DEV 1 , been hearing conflicting stuff about the claimed increases, has anybody had it done if so what increases did you get. What would be the expected 0-60 time, thanks

Re: EB 4.0 ii

grease wont fix it, and the bigest problem is people spray mineral lubricants into the channel rubber, this causes the rubbber to break down and makes window hard to operate, im not going to recomend a lubricant for the channel rubbers as i dont recoment any. Fit new rubber with new window motor and u wont have any problems

Re: EB 4.0 ii

Thanks everyone , I pulled the trim off and had a look , no luck , so went to a ford dealer and spoke to a young tech in the workshop, soon as he heard it he new , apparently the cable assembly starts to fray and and catches somewhere in the assembly, they are designed to replace and not repair so bought a new one $250 and installed, problem solved , had a good look at the old one and they look as though they cant be pulled apart so repairing is a nogo.

Re: EB 4.0 ii

You won't go wrong with the DEV1, though personally I'd also have the extractors upgraded to the JMM race series when having it fitted.
