Hi, My name is Jay

The latch broke and there is a recall from Ford to replace the latches. Here is copy of recall. It will be repaired for free. There is nothing you can do to make it work temporary.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

BRNew Jersey
