2015 Ford F-150 Outer Box Side Replacement Options

2015 Ford F-150 Outer Box Side Replacement Options

The method for replacing the outer box side on the 2015 Ford F-150 has been a popular area of discussion, and many people are asking, "What are my options and is one missing?"

The Ford Workshop manual directs us to the instruction sheet for the attachment method and specifications around that attachment method. According to the general repair information under the Service Guidelines, “The figures will explicitly call out which rivets are possible.” The latest version of the instruction sheet for the outer box side replacement gives the option of using blind rivets or plug welds. You may be thinking, what about SPRs?

We presented this to Ford and were told that SPRs are not an option for outer box side replacement. Technicians should use either plug welds or the specific blind rivets that are referenced in the instruction sheet.
