Customer: replied 6 years ago.

I was hoping for a little more than just "cut and paste" out of a manual. The steps listed in the manual do not utilize "tricks of the trade" or useful hints associated with experienced mechanics.

 

I was able to go to www.fordf150.net and get a step by step discription with colored pictures as well as reference to the same manual info to accomplish what I was looking for.

 

There were a couple of steps not mentioned in your "canned" description that was mentioned in the fordf150.net version that saved me some time and possible damage to trim on door. This was all at no charge.

 

I have replace both regulators and they work fine and now am just waiting for the other two to go, but when they do I am confident I will be able to replace them with little trouble because of the info I received from fordf150.net

Expert:  AutoDoc replied 6 years ago.

I'm glad you were able to find that info. That was probably posted by someone that was actually doing the repair at the time and was taking pictures while doing it. We on this website cannot just go out and take someones car apart and take pictures everytime we need to answer a question. We have to use whatever resources are available to us. Which would be the service manual. And believe me, it's much more difficult than just a cut and paste. There really aren't any tricks of the trade so to speak on these trucks except for maybe the little plastic nuts that the speakers bolt to on the front door panel. Everything else is pretty straight forward. Like I said, I'm glad you were able to resolve your concern without spending any money, but think of it from our perspective also in as we have many different types of questions and answers and not all of them would be posted in a web site with color pictures and detailed instructions. Have a great day.
