#6 of 8 What options would one have related to cross bars for the roof rack?
Aug 22, 2007 (3:30 am)
Thanks for the responses - love this forum! Still can't believe Ford sells the FS without crossbars on the roof rack. Is this a Ford exclusive system - what have others discovered?
One other question - is there a trick to getting the Forum's search speed up? That would be my only complaint here - most of the time it acts like it is non-functional?

Crossbars cost money and not everyone uses them I guess. So Ford gets to save bucks not making them standard and they they get to make some extra change selling the bars.
Which search are you using? The Search This Discussion box above each discussion is usually faster - the Search Forums and Advanced Search tools on the left sidebar search ~3 million posts or so, and that tends to take a little longer. But it shouldn't take too long or act like it's not working at all.
You can also do a whole site search with a search engine using the "site" modifier and you may find that helpful, even though it will pick up pricing info and reviews that don't live in the forum. Here's an example of the syntax to put into the search box at Windows Live, Yahoo or Google, etc.:

#8 of 8 Third Row Seat Question - 2006 Ford Freestyle
Jun 30, 2008 (6:47 am)
Anyone know the easiest way to entirely remove the third 3rd row seat? It appears that the mounting brackets are behind the plastic interior trim. I don't want to destroy the trim, just remove the third row seat to maximize my storage room for transporting my daughter's rock band gear.
