The following Weld Bonding Procedure should be used on all Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles, when replacement of any OEM weld bonded component (structural and non-structural) becomes necessary, unless specifically directed otherwise by a Ford Technical Publication specific to a particular vehicle.
Technicians performing repairs must use approved Squeeze-Type Resistance Spot Welding machines (STRSW machines). MIG-welding should only be performed when areas to be welded cannot be accessed using squeeze-type resistance spot welding machinery. Refer to TSB 04-26-17 for MIG-Weld Bonding information.
