  • SERVICE TIP – CAGE NUT SPINNING – CAB OFF SERVICE PROCEDURE
Publication Date: June 8, 2007

FORD:
2008 F-Super Duty

ISSUE:

Some 2008 F-Super Duty vehicles equipped with a 6.4L engine may exhibit a cage nut which spins, making it difficult to remove the cab for service. Using an air tool may worsen this condition.

ACTION:

Follow the Service Procedure steps to gain access to the spinning cage nut.

SERVICE TIP

NOTE:IT IS MANDATORY TO USE ONLY HAND TOOLS TO REMOVE BODY MOUNTING BOLTS.

NOTE:THE BOLTS ARE DESIGNED TO STRIP BEFORE THE NUT AND A STRIPPED BOLT DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN THE NUT HAS BEEN DAMAGED. NUTS SHOULD BE EXAMINED FOR DAMAGE BEFORE THEY ARE ORDERED.

  1. Front cage nut – remove left hand headlamp assembly.
  2. Second cage nut – remove inner fender well and body plug.
  3. Third and fourth cage nuts access – in cab under carpet.

    For additional information on Body Retainer Cage Nuts, reference the 2008 F-Super Duty Workshop Manual, Section 502-02.
