Question about 2003 Ford Ranger Regular Cab

1 Answer

Removing cab from 2003 ford ranger. three of the biscuits turn.

I have removed three of the six cab to frame retaining bolts. The three remaining have the biscuits broken free and will not allow me to remove the bolts. the metal at the base of the biscuit assys have a couple of notches or flat sides. This appears to be a location for a tool of some type to retain the biscuit in order to remove the bolt. Is this true? Can i find a tool to retain the biscuit?

I have had to drill holes in the floor of a chevy with a hole saw because the body mounts were broke off. just not worth the time to try and save a few bucks on bolts. get new ones. hope this helps. mike

    How do you remove the rear body of a DX B4000

    Mazda and the Ford Ranger are pretty much the same truck. On my Ford Ranger there are six silver in color bolts that have a allen wrench type head, these are large in size and are on the floor of the box bed. Remove those bolts, disconnect the wire harness towards the rear of vehicle on drivers side. This plug is for the tail, turning and backup lights. With a helper the whole box body can be lifted off the frame exposing the fuel tank. Few things to keep in mind, make sure there aren't screws or a retaining devices connecting the fuel fill tube to box body and to make the box body lighter, remove the tail gate before you start. Hope this helps.
