Hello and thank you for your question,

The problem you are describing was a known issue and Ford released a service bulletin dealing with this and the needed repair. I have enclosed the bulletin in the link below with the part number for the repair kit. The problem you are going to have is finding one due to the age of the truck. I would try contacting your Ford dealer and have them place it on there Ford search hotline and maybe they can locate one for you .
