Did a 2006 Ford mustang DW1570 yesterday.If anyone has not done one yet they are treat to do. just watch the bottom right and left corners at the fenders. Top and side cut out from the outside. bottom from the indide.The bottom urethane beat is way down below the dash.[:)]
Since I'm new to the forum, I'm looking back several pages.
Yeah, I've done several of these. They're sooooooo much easier than the previous model. You don't have 10,000+ screws to remove under the door seals. In fact, all the Ford cars have gotten easier. The 500, Montego, Freestyle, etc. Only the F-150 got tough. The doors are easy on the 150, you just have to remove the speaker post in order to get the panel off and the backglass is a bolt in just like the 97 and up.
I believe you are wrong, on the new F150(dw1529) extended cabs the seat back doesn't have bolts, it has a hook mechanism that you need to push on with a standard screwdriver or equivalent. Took forever for the first time, you kinda just get lucky. There is a metal bar at bottom corners, you need to lift cushion as far as you can and stick a screwdriver straight back. Then it just pops out. You can see nothing, its all done by feel and luck. I went to ford and got a tech bulletin for the removal. It had a picture and instructions and I still say I was lucky that first time I got it. No pun intended. Good luck
yes billybubba is correct with the one I am talking about. his description is exactly how my experience was also. Don't give up after you get the first one out and see the design you will see how simple it "CAN" be.
