Request

Is there a procedure available for replacing the rear rail?

Response

Ford does not have a specific procedure for replacing the rear rail.

Per our contact at Ford: “The rear frame rail assembly is replaced at factory joints, meaning, the service part may not be separated to install, it must be replaced as an assembly as received. I do not recall any unique aspects of replacement, you can do it without quarter panel and trunk floor removal as I remember it.”
