Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

1999 Ford F-350 Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 172008

F-350 Lariat, Leather 7.2L Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles


3 door actuators went out in my Ford which had very low miles (My '99 still has under 90k and it is 1/22/14). With low miles it is driven only for an occasional hauling need and for camping with a camper so the amount of door locking and unlocking is minimal. With these locks, I had purchased the 3 actuators from the dealer and recall them to have cost around $85 each. After some time went by, I finally decided to let them replace the old ones with the ones I had previously purchased because I didn't want to break any tabs on the inner door panels; the labor was another $150 or so.

Since then, I have gone on-line and found info that showed how to remove the door panels for speakers that I blew so I now know how easy it is.

I have a fourth door actuator out that has been out over a year (it is a back door so I don't have to deal with it much). I found the actuator can be ordered through a local auto parts store locally for around $35 so when I find time I'll do this myself.

Somewhat disappointed at how soon some parts go out on a rig not used often.
