2011 Ford F-150



Is there a procedure available for partial replacement at factory seams for the front upper rail?


Ford does not have a partial replacement at factory seams procedure for the front upper rail.

Per Ford’s collision position statement on Structural Repairs for Ford Motor Company Vehicles: “Where no Ford supplied repair procedure is available, repairs must be made at factory joints or seams with Ford original replacement parts using procedures that duplicate factory assembly processes and techniques.”

Per I-CAR curriculum developed in cooperation with the vehicle maker: “Service parts should be replaced as supplied unless a procedure exists.”
