    Radio Removal ??

    Is there some kind of trick to removing the radio? I have the Ford stereo removal tools but when I try to pull it out it just seems stuck? I;v stuck the tools in as far as they will go and they do catch for a second but as soon as I really pull hard they just release and pull out. Thanks.

    I finally see what I think is the problem. There is what appears to be a hole on the top of the motor in the valley under the fuel filter bowl towards the back. Looks like it's missing some kind of plug of something that should be screwed in there. I cant reach it to see if it's threaded...

    Help Needed OBD Code P0683

    All good now. New GPCM and no more codes. Past smog. Prolly one of the easiest jobs I've taken on with this truck. Right on top of the motor 2 nuts, 2 plugs, done. I think it took me longer to get my tools out and put them away than it did to do the work. Thanks folks.

    AIH Delete

    Several years ago I removed the AIH and plugged it. Now I have to put it back so my truck will pass smog. I have the part but I do remember how to hook the wires back up. Does anyone have a picture of how to reconnect the wires? Thanks.

    window motor tips and suggestions

    I think I have another issue. This spring fell out while I was in there. I'm pretty sure I see where it goes and I put it there but there is no tension on it or anything keeping it in there. Any ideas?

    window motor tips and suggestions

    Thanks for the response. Is it still easier to replace the whole assembly even though I already have the motor off, or have I already created a problem by doing that? YES, I have an ohmmeter but have no idea how to use it?

    window motor tips and suggestions

    Funny you should mention that. I just got it out and the motor will work to roll down but doesn't even try to go up. I have the switch assembly in my hand how do I check it? If its not the switch and I do need a motor SHOULD i get the whole assembly w/regulator or just get the motor?

    My drivers side window just stopped working. I got the door panel off. What is the best way to to get the motor out? and Where is the best place to buy the replacement? FMC will only sell me the regulator and motor together. Is that necessary? Thanks.

    Thanks again for all the input guys. I went down today and got my new shoes and am already happy. I have never been happy with the parelli scorpions DORF put on during the recall. Still dont understand why they would put the STRs on a 4WD vehicle as oppossed to the ATs. Plus they only lasted...

    Bridgestone Dueller Revo

    I appreciate the responses guys. Pretty sure it's BS, but I've been told that you cant put 285's on my stock, 02 limited, wheels . Something along the lines of, you have to have an 8" wheel for 285's and my stocks are 7". Does that sound right to any of you? Thanks. Jamie
