It seems like a very expensive repair for such a simple thing. I would only use a factory part and get a mechanic to do it on the side or do it yourself if you think you can. A lot of dealership mechanics work from home you just need to ask them. I know I did for the 40 years I was one and this was ...

Either move the front tires side to side or front to back and see if there is a difference.

I had no problems with all the other ones. Just lift and walk it right out the back. For some reason he thought he had to pull it to him. But yes going thru the inside is a good idea. I still would not use my BIL.

Replacing tops is an easy job with someone else helping. :yeahthat: All tops were frame and all replacements, and I did all but one with one other person helping. That one, I was out of town, and two of my sons did the job. :) I did all my replacements with just one helper. I used my BIL for one, n...

If it’s a sticking caliper you would smell brakes. I’m going with a bad belt in one of the tires. Switch front to back see if there is any difference. If there is no change you should get the front end checked out. Do you have state inspection where you live?

I got a starter form our new you pick you pay for $16 I checked the #8 fuse still had the 20 amp fuse so for price and time to remove it I'll give it a shot. I did up my fuse to a 25 amp and its been starting fine. When it starts to blow that one I'll replace the starter. I have a backup truck so I ...

If you need to replace the regulator it's really not that hard. Once you get the trim panel off there are only 3 nuts (If I recall) and the whole motor, regulator, glass just lift out. I would go to the junk yard before spending $750 at the dealer. J/Y might be $50 Pretty big saving for a little wo...

Hey all,
So the dreaded #8 fuse is blowing, so I guess it's time to replace the starter. Before I do that is there a relay I need to check, in case it's faulty?
Also any recommendations of the brand of starter, and new or rebuilt?

Thanks
Dave

I'm sure RockAuto has them. When I worked at Ford almost every car that came in with driveability problems had champion plugs when Ford called for Motorcraft. Try to tell someone who just installed them that was the problem and now they needed an oil change to boot because they flooded the engine an...

Starting to put together quite a parts bill.

Anyone have any issue using autolite iridium plugs? Can't find Champion around here.
