      • Hello sir. Meron po kayo tutorials on how to repair yung rear seat. Nasira yung mechanism to lift and fold the rear seat. May naputol na cable inside the mechanism where you pull the latch to lift and fold the seat. Ayaw na malift and fold yung rear seat dahil dito. Please advise.


      • Hi sir,

        Just want to ask ano ung alternative n oil filter recommended para sa for ecosport titanium salamt sir
        Always watching your tut about ecos



      • Thanks for your diy tutorials Sir.
        Regarding emergency rear door opener, nabibili po ng set yung sensor, knob and cable? Im planning to install the same. Actually yung actuator ng boot door ko is failing na..😭. Need to buy also a generic actuator, and follow your tutorial. Thanks again for your efforts making diy’s..


  1. Hi! I accidentally landed in your Youtube channel and I immediately subscribe there. You help me a lot by watching your Youtube videos regarding Ecosport and also reading your blog post. Kudos to you Mr. Anthony! 😊


  2. Good am sir.
    A third party car alarm was installed to my ecosport yesterday.
    I’ve noticed something, I locked it thru the remote of the new alarm. Then after 1 minute, I unlocked it again. When I opened the door, the factory car alarm sound off. I quickly pressed the unlocked key of my old remote. Then it stopped. Is this normal? It happened most of the time. The only solutions I did was either to press the unlocked from my old remote or start the engine. Is there a way to deactivate the sound of the factory car alarm?


    • I was told that such behavior is normal. Apparently (according to a Ford technician) they have no way of by-passing the factory alarm (which is good news). I guess you’ll have to improvise for now :)


    • pahelp po tungkol sa info display, saan po kaya makakabili o pwede magawa yung screen niya kasi yung akin hindi na open yung display at kung may idea kayo sa price pwede pashare na din po at kung saan makakabili tsaka pwede pagayos.
      thank you


    • I believe you are referring to the place where you attach a tow eye or tow hook (supplied tool along with the jack and wrench), so you could pull another car (or be pulled by another car). There is another slot on the front bumper. Both are connected directly to the main frame of the vehicle. I’ll be featuring that soon.


  3. Thank You Sir,
    Your DIY series are well organized in menus, and groups.It takes a lot of effort to video each topic to explain.Very helpful to Our fellow ecosport owners.


    • Hi, kindly refer to the instruction manual of your Rear Parking Sensor, It needs to be tapped on to the reverse light harness.


  4. Thank you very much sir Anthony for sharing your Skills about our beloved EcoSport . May God bless you even more of His Wisdom !

    By the way Sir , meron na ba po tutorial Video mo on how to remove steering wheel (to repair the Horn switch sa handle ng steering wheel ? wala po kasing contact yung lower part button , left & right lang po ng steering wheel gumagana>>>> salamat po muli


      • ah ok po ,. no probem po sir… salamat po muli… malaking tulong na yung mga nasa videos na nagawa mo po. God Bless!


  5. Hi Anthony:
    I wish you could feature “how-to” convert rear wheel drum brakes, to a disk brake system. My unit is an Ecosport Titanium. Many Thanks


    • That would be great, but with very limited personal funding for this DIY page, such a modification is not a priority at the moment :)


  6. Sir newbie po ako
    my gusto lang akong malamn regarding sa change ng ecosport battery actually palitan n ung battery
    pag napalitan ko n b ng new battery meron p bng kailangn gawin gaya ng pagrest or what so ever kc sa isang nakausap ko meron daw erereprogram at 3500 ang bayad

    or just replace the old to a new battery and no need for reprogaram confusing kc

    pa help manga ka eco


    by the way titanium 2018 ung model salamt and god bless


    • May ilang reports po mula sa ibang ka-eco na nagka-error po sila after magpalit ng battery (nothing serious, need lang i-clear ang error by using a tool na kinoconnect sa OBD2 port sa left side ng steering wheel). Para maiwasan ang error, keep the vehicle powered at all times, pwede gumamit ng extra battery para doon muna kukuha ng power while ginagawa ang pagpapalit. Banggitin nyo po sa kung sino man magpapalit ng battery, dapat familiar sya sa sinasabi ko. Good luck!


      • Hello sir,

        Napallitan n ung battery tapos pag palit my lumabas n transmission malfucntionafter that nawala nung ginalaw ung kambyo at pinaandar cguro at least 30 mins pero ung date at time nag iba

        Wala n kayang problema ung sasakyan pag di n lumabas ang error n transmission malfunction

        Tapos pwede n syang i-atras at ganun din sa pag abante

        Feed back sir kung kailangan ko pang iperest sa ford baka mamaya kc sir upon driving baka mahinto nalng ng bigla ung eco

    Maraming salamat sa iyong mga videos!!


  8. Hello Sir. Thank you po sa pagshare ng mga info about sa ecosport. Sobrang malaking tulong po sa amin, lalo na po ako na wala talagang alam sa mga sasakyan. More power to you sir! God Bless!


  9. Thank you very much sa mga diy tutorials. Napakaraming upgrades na akong nagawa sa ecosport. Like you, I’ve notice that I’ve always look for various ways to improve the headlight output. So hope to share with you some info rin.

    Through the years, marami na rin akong nasubukan na versions whether upgrade to premium halogen, LEDs (have tried several versions an suppliers as well), etc.. So far most satisfied ako sa version ng Ledworks from Cebu(try their XF3 model na all-weather(4300K color) para ok even sa ulan) since maayos yung beam pattern unlike some versions na nasubukan ko. Order the error decoder as well para no issues. Try them out in the future if time/budget allows. Again salamat for posting all those videos.


    • Maraming salamat po! Hindi rin natin kayang i-exhaust lahat ng alternatives dahil napakagastos nun, kaya magrerely po tayo sa mga experience-based na info kagaya ng binigay nyo :)


  10. Hi. May idea po ba kayo kung ano problem kapag minsan kumakalampag sa right front portion ng sasakyan lalo pag sa humps. Minsan naman po nag vavibrate kapag naandar tapos nawawala kapag nagbreak sa same portion.


  11. Hi, Salamat sa mga tips. Nakita ko nga yung video nyo regarding sa ecosport lug nuts at good advice nga na palitan ng mas standard na klase kaysa ma flat sa daan at di mo mapalitan.

    Musta po yung lug nuts na nagamit nyo sa video? Sakto naman ba ang fit vs dun sa orig? How much inabot yung replacement lug nuts?

    Thank you din sa tutorial nyo on how to add additional 12V ports, nalagyan na rin namin ng socket na connected sa ignition yung ecosport. Sinabay na rin namin yung paglinis ng cabin filter :)


    • Ang nabili ko po ay 21 mm lug nuts instead na 19 mm, 21 mm lang kasi available sa malapit na auto shop. Mukhang OK naman po ito. Ang ginagawa ko po, kada 1000 km, chinecheck ko po ang lugnuts kasabay ng gulong (tanggal-kabit, walang rotation). Ginagamit ko po yung trip counter para maremind ako.


  12. What does it mean when ALL the warning light indicators on the dashboard are lighted? Someone said it might be a sign that my batteries are weak is this true? It hasn’t been used in a while and if it’s ever used, not more than 3km.


    • With engine off, all warning lights are displayed at start up to show that they are not busted and are working fine. As soon as the engine is started, if there’s no problem, the warning lights must turn off. Is this the case with your EcoSport?


  13. Been watching the videos and it’s awesome. Wondering if you have a review or tutorial for windshield fluid not working.
