I have a '98 build EL Falcon. If the tail light assembly hasn't been out before, inside the boot there are these 2 locating pins coated in plastic. These are attached near the outer edge of the assembly, running inside the boot. The square shaped hard plastic bits protruding inwards are for screws to attach to - so don't remove these. I had to get the plastic off to free the locating pins to remove the assembly. The second part is the 2 screws towards the reverse light end of the assembly. You access these from the outside of the car. Once these are undone the assembly should come out far enough to access the bulbs - as wiring is attached. There are 3 accessible bulbs available to replace. The brake light and the indicator bulb holders are in line with each other and you twist them out of the assembly, then remove the actual bulb and replace. To replace the assembly, put the locating pins into position and then the rest until sitting correctly and re-install the 2 screws.

If there are no screws holding the lens on check the trunk for large wing nuts that hold the light assembly in.

but dont tighten to tight remove the flex pipe and also the rear shockers from the axle ,then the spring u bolts and then the hand brake cable from the center adjuster,now it should only leave your tail shaft 4 nuts/bolts.

We are changing the rear brake pads on a 1998 ford falcon I want to know do the calipers move if so how do they move to put pads in


most falcon rear disc calipers require a special tool that fits into the piston then a 1/2 inch drive ratchet used to spin the piston while pushing in . You should be able to uy this from most auto parts outlets.

Firing order for a 1996 EF ford falcon


EF & EL are 1,5,3,6,2,4
EF has a coil pack under the inlet manifold the EL has a distributor
EF uses a waste spark system so 2 plugs are fired at the same time eg 1 & 6 - 2 & 5 - 3 & 4
