Request

Is there a procedure available for replacing the front upper rail?

Response

Ford does not have a specific procedure for replacing 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.”
