    Removing

    Hopefully this older thread can be ressurected. Today my installer came by to replace the Sync 2 with the Sync 3. Everything wqas goiunf smoothly until it came time to remove the console. The media bin seems to be held down with a ship's anchor! She removed all bolts and popped all clips and the damn thing won't come out. It seems to be held in place by another bold but we can't find it. Anyone have a solution so we can get this done?

  4. Picked up a 2016 MKX Reserve 3.7L AWD with equipment group 102A and 24,500 miles from Carmax. Many thanks to the person who took good care of it during the fleet lease.

    Nope they killed it.

    Lincoln Smartlink

    does anyone know if Smartlink is still available? I have a Lincoln MKX 2016 model and would like to use that feature. It does not have an embedded modem but I would be willing to purchase one and have it setup

    Latest version of SYNC

    I don't think Lincoln supports the upgrade so it would have to be a bootleg installation which is always risky.

    Latest version of SYNC

    My random browsing of other FOMOCO forums, Google, automotive media, etc. appears to put up an abundance of warnings & caveats related to updating 3.0 with 3.4. Even some highly tech geek websites include cautions (in red) to performing the installation.

    Latest version of SYNC

    I think 3.4 is only for later model years.

    Latest version of SYNC

    My vehicle currently has Sync Version 3.0. I just had a 2020 Nautilus loaner and it had version 3.4. Should we be updating to this version or is it just for the 2020 Nautilus. the Owner's site has version 3.0 available. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Lincoln Way App

    I don't see oil life either and I tried the unintsall/install but still not there. I didn't know that feature was in the app until I saw thjis post.

    Creating wallpaper images

    By the way, I did solve the no loading problem. Files need to be saved at 72dpi, any higher resolution will not load.

    Creating wallpaper images

    I have SYNC 2, from what I understand it's not possible in SYNC 3 apparently.

    Creating wallpaper images

    I didn't know this was possible. What option is this in the Sync 3 menu?

    Lincoln Way App

    Uninstall and reinstall has worked for me.
  16. One trick I started using (on myself) years ago is to imagine the cost difference as cash sitting on the passenger seat. This is typically when deciding whether to buy a new one or keep an existing one. So let's say the new one will cost me $10K more - I say to myself do you want the new one or do you want to keep the one you have with $10K sitting there that you can spend on other things? Gets you out of the "oh well it's the same payment (but for 2-3 more years) or the payment only goes up a little" rationalization.
  17. Thank you both for the replies. Nice car! We chose the one with less miles as another unseen cost of A is the 100k service and the original battery. Overall we felt more peace of mind having some factory warranty remaining. We also got a better value for our trade (positive vs negative equity) with option B. I suppose most important is the wife is happy with her choice and I think it was the better choice overall. It’s simple when you only have one option: do you want that car or not? But when there are two or more prospects it gets tricky. It seems to really analyze a deal, it is more than just cost and mileage. Upcoming maintenance costs, warranty, your trade value, finance rate, and ease of working with varying dealers. Thanks again, here’s to many great years with this awesome Lincoln.
  18. I just bought my 2016 with 41,000 miles from a Lincoln dealership. It is a "certified" vehicle that comes with an extended warranty that goes to end of 2021. Vehicle looks like it came off the factory floor, it was flawless. That all being said I would recommend you check out Lincoln certified used because the prices are about the same as other off lease dealers (Autotrader, Carvana, OffLeaseOnly, etc.) and you get a whole lot more. I even opted for more coverage and paid to have the warranty go to the end of 2025! I paid $24,000 (not including the extra warranty) which I feel was a very good deal.

    Rear Wiper Blade replacement on 2016 MKX

    I should have been more specific about positioning the liftgate when installing the wiper. It only took a moment to figure that sitting in the cargo area (atop the gate latch & facing the rear of the vehicle) with the hatch pulled down towards my lap and the wiper at eye/shoulder level was more convenient than standing outside the vehicle with outstretched arms above my head. Thanks for reminding me to clarify.

    Rear Wiper Blade replacement on 2016 MKX

    Cosmos36, I don't think my arms are that long! Good way to do it though.
  21. 47K miles is 3-4 years of normal driving. That said, if it's all highway miles then that's not a huge difference. The difference for me would be the factory warranty - A is out of the factory warranty completely. B still has powertrain coverage for a couple of years. That plus new tires would lean me towards B.

  23. Hello all, new to the forum and maybe a new MKX owner tomorrow (1/13). I have two choices: A: 2016 MKX Reserve white platinum Tri-Coat, Cream interior, AWD, 2.7EB 85,000 miles (Commuter miles in suburbs, Lincoln dealer service records, 1 owner) for $20,500 B: 2016 MKX Reserve white platinum Tri-Coat, Black interior, AWD, 2.7EB 38,000 miles (from Illinois state government fleet, no service records), brand new tires, for $24,500. A is super clean, no blemishes. Appeared to be garaged. Will drive tomorrow. I haven’t seen B yet but photos appear super clean. Both have clean records. Is $4,000 more for new tires, 47k less miles and apx. 1 year left of warranty worth it? Which one do you choose and why?

    Creating wallpaper images

    I created a wallpaper images as per specifications. 800x384 jpg saved on a thumb drive. When I attempt to load it onto the MKX the files show up but when I select the file I want I get a message saying the image is not to specifications. The files are only about 700kb or less so size isn't a problem. They were created in Adobe Illustrator on a MacBook Pro. One is attached here, it's the logo of my Lincoln car club. I downloaded a wallpaper file from the internet to test it and it loaded to the MKX just fine. Anyone have an idea what I could be doing wrong?

    Rear Wiper Blade replacement on 2016 MKX

    When replacing the rear wiper blade on my 2016 MKX, I too pondered the limited visibility available to align the replacement blade's notch with the arm's bar. Similarly, I considered taping a mirror under the wiper arm as you suggested. Then, it occurred to me that a better view of the alignment/installation was possible if I just opened the liftgate and viewed the installation from below looking up through the liftgate glass as I aligned the new blade's notch & arm's bar. It took only seconds to complete.

    Rear Wiper Blade replacement on 2016 MKX

    Thanks for you help, I found it real easy to remove the old blade, but I struggled getting the new blade on until I taped a little mirror under the wiper arm. In the first image I outlined (in red) the frame (box) around where the clip snaps in. The second is an example of the mirror. My issue was the left and right side of the "box" that would surround the clip, I was trying to snap the blade on the sides of the "box" instead of in the center of the "box".

    Rear Wiper Blade replacement on 2016 MKX

    I even tried finding video of the 2016 Ford Edge, it's the same as the MKX. It was tough to get the old one off, I kept thinking that I shouldn't have to use this much force. The Valeo replacement would also work, as seen in their video.
