Your right, solder needs to be a lead/tin. Lead is the major component, it is often called "lead based".

I used a circuit board pen from Radio shack. It's made to draw the lines on a board when making a homemade circuit board. I tried the solder and couldn't do it. The pen is perfect because it's glue and silver solder at the same time, I pulled the little resistors off put a dab on the back and stuck them back on. Works great!

i have a 2003 F-350 6.0
I'm attempting to fix my overhead console the way you guys have explained here, however, when it comes to taking the overhead console down, you say to just pull it downward and it will just pop off? I pulled on mine and it doesn’t really seem to give. The entire ceiling seems to be pretty well attached. Any advice, pictures or hidden tabs that I should know about or should I just pull harder?
Thanks!
