How do I remove the electric motor from the retractable

Customer Question
How do I remove...

How do I remove the electric motor from the retractable running boards on my 2010 Ford Expedition EL. I have removed the running board and the bolts securing it to the pivot assembly but the motor and shaft won't slide out.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

89000 automatic

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Expedition EL yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes

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.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
