would this simple mod to make your own work ?Just about to fit ProPlates to my 2018 X290 and I discovered these were fitted. Has anyone else seen them? Are Fiats now strengthening the door locks, and do I need to fit the ProPlates? There is of course nothing on the outside to disuade an attempt to punch a hole beneath the door lock...
But never forget - the harder it is to get in a vehicleThey'd still have to climb through it on mine as the internal door locks have to be removed from the rear of the vehicle.
Its a good point, but isn't there a risk that they're only going find this out, once they've trashed your window? At which point they may still try and rob the van or walk away... either way its not good news.They'd still have to climb through it on mine as the internal door locks have to be removed from the rear of the vehicle.
Not being a thief but I suspect a search in "youtube" will show you.What makes the Ford Transit Mk 8 so easy to steal?
Very true,In fact I often find I unlock the van with the remote only to be unable to get in as the door bars are still in & access is only from the side door, which has a milenco on it outside..Only having an actual lock on the drivers door a flat battery means that you could not even get in through the side door as it only works on central locking.Its a good point, but isn't there a risk that they're only going find this out, once they've trashed your window?
I asked the question because every time Ford is mentioned we get the same old response "Ford are so easy to steal". It is interesting that the poster who made this comment earlier has not responded. Older Fords were easier to steal with the Tibbe locks but Ford no longer fit those. Its a shame some keep trotting out the same out-of-date garbage.Not being a thief but I suspect a search in "youtube" will show you.
"Peel and Steal" to gain access should be a good search option.
Then I suspect a OBD reader to reprogram and start the engine.
But I suspect all vans are easy to break into and nick if you are not bothered about damaging them.
