2. Do not cross post
Posting in one forum is sufficient! Don't use the excuse "It will get more views in this forum" because it will get moved to the appropriate forum anyway.
3. Do not post Ebay links to every single thing!
If you find something unusual, hard to find, funny, feel free to do so.
But do not post "I found a set a 4 E1s on ebay" or "Here's a link to ebay auction for OEM CD/radio".
1. A simple search on Ebay for "SVT Contour" brings all that up - there's no need to post it here!
2. CEGers are watching those items to get a good price - posting the link makes the watchers unhappy!
3. How do we know YOU are not spamming your own item for sale?

Q: How do I fold my rear seats down?
A: If your seats don't have a split in them, they don't fold down. If they do, there are pull knobs located in the upper part of the inside of the trunk.
Q: Is it ok to use non-premium / non-high octane gas in my SVT?
A: May result in engine knock. Long term "problems" / "issues" are debatable. SVT manual and printed on car is to use premium fuel. It is recommended to do so, but it's your car.
Q: How do I know if I have keyless entry?
A: The only way is to look for the electronic transmittor box and antenna for the keyless entry behind the glove box.
Squeeze in both sides of the glove box to clear the plastic tags and let the box swing down towards the floor.
If your Contour has the premium sound system, you will see an amphlifier (finned metal box) directly behind the glovebox. Contours with premium sound have "premium sound" on the speaker grills.
If you have premium sound, unbolt / remove the amphlifier.
If you have keyless entry, you will see a a grey plastic box (approximately 3" X 5") with a black radio antenna cable plugged into it.
If you car didn't come with keyless entry, then its a major job to add it because Ford did not intall the extra wiring harnesses in cars that did not come with the system from the factory. I bought the transmittor and antenna from a junkyard, prior to checking if my 95 SE had the wiring harnesses. I went back to the junkyard to get the wiring harnesses and found out that I would have to rip the entire dash apart to remove the harnesses. KKSPORT
