I have an 86 Regular cab F-150. If you take the top of the dash board off, I
think it is like 12 screws. Look above the glove box and there is a wiring
harness plug that is about 2 X 3 inches. It isn't the buzzer, but if you
unplug it, the buzzer will be turned off.

Just unplug it. Don't cut anything.

I Have a 84 F-150 if u reach up under the dash by the ash tray that's where
mine is at. I replaced mine because it is handy from leaving your headlights
on, but it is very easy to pull off and throw in the glove compartment.

I replaced them on a 77 F-350 by just taking the big nut off and pulling
the axle forward with a cum-a-long far enough to slip the new urethane
bushings in.

Hi there,
Pardon me for dropping in on the threads of H/power & Mileage and the
hassles of installing yet more computers etc, and of course I am not privy
to your particular circumstances, but is LPG a viable option for you ?
Down here in Australia, I suppose 50% to 60% of F's would have a duel fuel
- - Gas & Petrol installation. I am only guessing, but the $$'s you are
talking about, convert to Pacific Paso's, then add 10% for the Aussie $$,
how much more to go LPG and solve the emission & economy problems in one
swipe. A popular kit-car (ford Cobra) installs a 460V8 and LGP fuel only, I
know of three under construction, or recently completed, to meet the
pollution regs, and my F100 '86 351 Lwb 2wd is LPG Only powered.
Just for comparison's sake, to-day, in Sydney, ULP - 67.9c, LPG - 22.9c per
Litre, Is your price differential that great ? - or not worth the trouble ?
- - or not easily available country wide ? Because down here in Oz, - I can't
think of a single good reason to stay with petrol...
