New 2017 Transit - Ready for action
Just returned home with my new Transit. Before I left to pick it up I read a thread on what to inspect before I drove it home. Props to who reminded to check the air cleaner.
Everything I checked out was good. The slider door was smooth and closed easily, all the doors had even seams, etc.
The air cleaner cover had a plastic trough above it to divert water but the top lid still fits inside the lower portion instead of overlapping it. I could see water in the gap so I wanted to get the cover off. It looked pretty cumbersome to me to do under the circumstance so I asked the salesperson I was dealing with if he could have someone from the svc dpt come and take it off for me. Their head guy, a very nice fellow, soon appeared and he struggled with it a bit, noticing Ford has apparently attached a sensor of some kind to the top of the intake tube that was new to him. It made it more awkward than usual he said to get the top off but he struggled with it.
Soon he headed off with the damp air cleaner and brought back and installed a fresh dry one.
End of story
