ISSUE:

The front headlamp housing may melt or distort on some Ambulance and/or Emergency vehicles. This may be caused by the headlamp high beam flashing for signaling purposes in an on-off manner which may build up heat within the headlamp housing.

ACTION:

Replace the headlamp housing with a housing which has a revised material to withstand the higher temperatures generated by the flashing of the headlamps on emergency vehicles. Refer to the appropriate year F-Series/Bronco Service Manual, Section 17-01, for removal and installation procedures.
