Question about 1989 Ford F 250

1 Answer

F-150 hood spring removal, replace or repair?

I had the hood open to charge the battery and a strong wind came up and pushed one of the hood spring/brackets past the point where it "locks" in place, so that the hood would not close. I couldn't bend the bracket back to the lock position, so I removed the bolt holding the bracket. Now I don't know how, with only one pair of hands, I can hold the spring in place while trying to bend the bracket down to the right position and bolt it in place.

Yeh, OK, I'm a dumb girl who tries to do most of my own repairs, and this one looked simple enough but obviously I need some help sometimes. I have lots of tools and a fair amount of skill. Thanks!

The handle under the dash should open the hood not the trunk. Use a pair of vise grips and pull the cable with them. Then replace the cable.

How do i gain entry into my ford f-150 cab or open the hood with not key entry when battery is dead


You can unlock the door with a slim jim, or coat hangar to gain entry into the cab. Otherwise you will have to remove the phillips screws that hold the grill on, and remove the grill to get to the hood latch.

Best (Broan) K260A - I tried to change the bulb as well....completely inaccessible to change with hands (bulb is set deeper in hood, not even flush) tried gloves, rubber jar opener but cannot get access to...


The lamp holder assembly snaps into a hole in the range hood with spring clips. To remove the light bulbs, you simply push and turn, like older, bayonet style automotive turn signal bulbs. It seems you have broken your lamp holder assembly. Just break the trim ring so it can be removed, or you can try to take it out reverse polish style by releasing the spring clips from the middle inwards. Once the trim ring is loose, you can extract the body of the lamp holder through the hole... the wires will be barely long enough to stick out the hole if you are lucky. If you are crafty, you may fashion a repair on the separated lamp socket assembly. If not, your replacement part number is SV16569. just call nutone-broan at 800-558-1711 and they will be glad to ship you a new lamp shell socket trim assembly.

Windshild wiper motor ford 1992 f-150 how to remove


The clip slides away (sideways) from the wiper arm stem Then you will be able to slip it off easily as the spring is being held away from tension on the stem.
Then remove all the screws (approx 7 under the hood and 5 across the top of the cowl right between the windshield and the hood. Then remove the cowl cover and you will see you have complete access to the motor and arms as well as the bolt that hold the motor to the firewall. You will then be able to access the clip on the wiper motor transmission so you can remove it for replacement or repair.

My honda odyssey 2002 hood latch stuck it opened the hood and now not closing even droping the hood from difference hight and even pressing it ???


SOUND LIKE YOUR HOOD LATCH IS STUCK IN THE RELEASE POSITION. YOU CAN DO TWO THINGS. REPLACE YOUR HOOD LATCH OR PUSH THE LATCH BACK INTO POSITION MANUALLY EVERYTIME YOU OPEN YOUR HOOD. IT'S EASY. FIRST CHECK YOUR HOOD RELEASE LEVER (DRIVER SIDE KICK PANEL)AND MAKE SURE IT'S MOVING FREELY. IF LEVER IS OK,GO TO YOUR HOOD LATCH. LOOK TO THE RIGHT OF THE LATCH (LOOK DOWN FROM THE TOP VIEW)AND YOU'LL SEE A SMALL METAL BAR WITH A SPRING PULLING DOWN ON IT(MIGHT NEED FLASH LIGHT TO SEE BAR AND SPRING). TAKE A FLATHEAD SCREWDRIVER AND PUSH DOWN ON THE METAL BAR WHERE SPRING CONNECT. THE BAR SURE MOVE ABOUT 1/4 INCH DOWN. CLOSE YOU HOOD AND YOU'RE DONE. YOU JUST HAVE TO PUSH THE BAR DOWN EVERYTIME YOU OPEN IT.

How to replace 12v charger socket on dash in ford 150 2006


Start by removing the center trim panel around the radio. It is held on with 6 spring clips. Open the ash tray, and pull on each lower corner and then work your way up. Spring clip locations are circled in black in the picture below.

The 12 V power port on the dash, I use 1 hand to help release it from behind while pulling on the front part. It snaps into place.
The Cigar lighter on the center trim panel, Ned to unplug the harness,( easiest to remove the black trim panel by pushing the tabs ) and push in the plastic tabs, and remove the socket from the front .

That covers both, let me know if you need additional information

Won't start


82059263 The [PG] starter motors are [non-]repairable starter motors. They have pole pieces that are arranged around the armature within the starter housing. When the solenoid windings are energized, the pull-in winding circuit is completed to ground through the starter motor. The hold-in winding circuit is completed to ground through the solenoid. The windings work together magnetically to pull in and hold in the plunger. The plunger moves the shift lever. This action causes the starter drive assembly to rotate on the armature shaft spline as it engages with the flywheel ring gear on the engine. At the same time, the plunger closes the solenoid switch contacts in the starter solenoid. Full battery voltage is then applied directly to the starter motor and it cranks the engine.

As soon as the solenoid switch contacts close, current stops flowing thorough the pull-in winding as battery voltage is now applied to both ends of the windings. The hold-in winding remains energized; its magnetic field is strong enough to hold the plunger, shift lever, starter drive assembly, and solenoid switch contacts in place to continue cranking the engine. When the engine starts, the pinion gear overrun protects the armature from excessive speed until the switch is opened.

When the ignition switch is released from the START position, crank voltage is removed from the starter solenoid S terminal. Current flows from the motor contacts through both windings to ground at the end of the hold-in winding. However, the direction of the current flow through the pull-in winding is now in the opposite direction of the current flow when the winding was first energized.

The magnetic fields of the pull-in and hold-in windings now oppose one another. This action of the windings, along with the help of the return spring, cause the starter drive assembly to disengage and the solenoid switch contacts to open simultaneously. As soon as the contacts open, the starter motor is turned off.


Here is the wiring circuit for the NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH which is what I believe to be your problem, do the reverse lights come on when the keky is ON and the transmission selector is in REVERSE? IF NOT you have a renge selector problem.
if you find this information helpful please give me a good rating and please contact me if you need any further assistance.
Thank you, Randy
