|2006-2008 Mark LT|
Some 2004-2008 F-150 (Excluding Heritage F-150) and 2006-2008 Mark LT vehicles may encounter a concern of a power steering fluid seepage from tears in the high pressure line hose material due to prolonged exposure to -20 °F (-29 °C) and below, specifically climates in areas such as Alaska and Northern Canada.
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.
A new service only part has been developed which will resolve this concern on vehicles operating in this environment. Use of the part in warmer climates may result in increased incidents of steering shudder.
Remove and replace the power steering line with the service only part listed, following Work Shop Manual, Section 211-02.
|NOTE:||USE OF THIS PART IN WARMER CLIMATES COULD RESULT IN LOW SPEED STEERING SHUDDER AND OTHER NVH RELATED COMPLAINTS.|
|NOTE:||WHILE REPAIRING THE POWER STEERING SYSTEM, CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN TO PREVENT THE ENTRY OF FOREIGN MATERIAL OR FAILURE OF THE POWER STEERING COMPONENTS MAY RESULT.|
