Big, huge, weekend project...with pics!

OK, for all of those wise donkeys that insist upon seeing visual evidence of my being physically productive in a Ford related activity, this thread is for you!

After much encouragement from my Mrs, (also called "nagging") over the last 36 hours, I did manage to successfully repair the malfunctioning turn signal in the 2008 Escape.

Step one: Put the patient vehicle halfway in the garage.

Step two: Take a "before" picture for the benefit of the doubters among you. You know who you are.

Step three: Begin dis-assembly process. (remove screw x 2)

Step four: Picture of high tech screw removing implement, and visual evidence of fasteners removed from fixture.

Step five: Visual evidence of empty fastener hole. (1 of 2)

Step six: Driver side rear light fixture dangling from vehicle...

Step seven: Plug in removed from fixture, light bulb removed from plug in.

My lovely assistant holding up the newly installed light bulb.

Same assistant holding the reassembled fixture.

My talented hand carefully reinstalling aforementioned fixture.

"After" photo.

The last two photos are simply visual evidence that I got the flippin' Escape INTO the garage.

Terry I know good and well you daughter did all the work, probably backed the car in the garage without you assistance. While you slept on the couch, after eating a pan of Ms Pam's brownie's.

She did the whole job herself, except the part where you picked up the screwdriver long enough to get a pic. Quit trying to fool your ol buddie's on this one, the last time that hand held a tool was when you uses a flat tip screw driver to open a budweiser can.

And I know that she has more "seat time" on the craftsman lawn mower than you.

"Hee-Haw hee haw" and I quote you: "over the last 36 hours, I did manage to successfully repair the malfunctioning turn signal in the 2008 Escape".

I so have a blast picking on you, so lets just say "you lie to your friends, I'll lie to mine, but lets not lie to each other about you working on a Ford", ok?

The factory repair manual say it s .4 job BTW, and I like the just make 3 rights to go left.

Thanks for the thread, there ol chapter leader.
