Hello

Different tech here.

 

Here is the procedure for replacing the door check on your vehicle once the door panel is off.

DOOR CHECK

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Where the part attaches to the door there are two screws,m and ts easy to remove. No need to remove the door panel. Removing the part from the body of the truck is where I need some help. I need to get to from under thae dash some how but th emergency brake assembly is in the way, and I cant see ow to remove the door check assembly. There are two screw you can remove fromthe outside but it needs to slide off the body from the inside. If you have access to Ford Tech service.com there should be some docs hat give a better explanation.
Ford Mechanic: Earl, Ford Technician replied 8 years ago

Alright, sorry didn't realize they put the front check opposite the older trucks. Here is a

picture of the parking brake pedal. The written procedure in the service manual is terrible and does not provide a good step by step instruction for removal. You will need to remove the three bolt that the #4 is labeling. They should have 10 millimeter heads. Once you remove these three bolt you should be able to position the pedal assembly aside enough to give you access to the hole where the door check will come out.

Thanks. If I can have info on Section 414-02 and 501-05 and also the info on Parking brake tension release I will be good.
Ford Mechanic: Earl, Ford Technician replied 8 years ago

The tension release info is in the last post near the bottom. Click on the word tension release and will come up in PDF format.

I will try and get you the info from the service manual later tonight. The Ford website has been down all day and I am unable to access the workshop manuals right now.

Ford Mechanic: Earl, Ford Technician replied 8 years ago

The Ford site is still down. Here is the procedure for removing the cowl side panel from another source it shows for the right side, but it is basically the same except for the fuse panel door. You will need to remove the scuff plate along the bottom of the door opening. this is done by pulling straight up. Once the scuff plate is off you will need to remove the plastic push pin from the cowl side panel then the pane can be removed by pulling it towards the back of the vehicle and the clips will release.
