Subject: FTE Small - Speaker question

Hello again, I have yet another question. I own (if you forgot) a 91
Ranger XLT. I assume it has the stock stereo system, so someone here
must know what I mean. Both of my front speakers (which were the only
speakers when I bought the truck) are blown. I can replace them myself,
no problem. The problem is getting TO them. Do I need to remove the
whole freakin' door panel to get to them? The speaker is located on the
bottom of the door inside the little storage pocket. I thought the
grille covering the speaker would just come off by itself, but I can't
get it off. I am very reluctant to remove the whole panel because I
don't want to mess with putting the thing back on. If you have any
suggestions, lemmie hear! Thanx.

Yes, you do have to take the door panel off. It isn't as hard as it sounds.
Even I did it. But the replacement speaker that I bought wouldn't fit there
so I mounted it behind the seat. Worked real well. Of course, then I had to
put the door panel back on.

Subject: FTE Small - Power Steering Pulley

Okay what's the trick to removing the power steering pump pulley? I put my
pulley puller tool in it and cranked down until the pulley was out of shape.
Now I need another pulley, good thing I have a spare motor with power steering
pump. The end of the shaft has a hex head like an Allen wrench is used but
the Chilton manual says nothing about it. Anyone removed one before? Is mine
just stuck on from years of desert blasting? They aren't treaded on are they?

Thank you in advance,
Robert

I've got a question regarding the attached Explorer recall. It supposedly
only applies to those California counties listed, does anyone know why?
Someone else has had to question this or at least consider it before now. I
haven't asked Ford yet, I just thought I'd ask here first.

Regards,

Barry

If they are like my '93, then yes, you have to take th entire door panel off. The door handle has a cover that comes off. Use a T15 Torx screwdriver to remove the handle. The take the door panel off. The speaker is held in by 4 screws. Everything goes back together in reverse.
