2006-2008 Mark LT

This article supersedes TSB 06-10-9 to update the vehicle model years.

ISSUE:

Some Body Shops and Collision Repair Centers may find it necessary to replace frames on some 2004-2008 F-150 and 2006-2008 Mark LT vehicles.

ACTION:

Use the Service Procedure and frame replacement matrix chart to properly repair the vehicle.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

Identify the current vehicle and frame level requiring replacement by inspecting the frame label. (Figure 1) At the top of the sticker will be 8L34-5005; the number in front of the L34 indicates model year of the frame. If necessary, work with Parts Central Order Processing (COPS) to make this determination. With COPS assistance, determine the service level frame that is available in service stock for the vehicle.

NOTE:LOCATE THE FRAME TAG LABEL ON THE FRAME RAIL. THIS LABEL IS LOCATED UNDER THE NUMBER 1 BODY MOUNT DIRECTLY UNDER THE “A” PILLAR ON EITHER SIDE OF THE VEHICLE. HAVE THE 4 DIGIT SUFFIX FROM THE LABEL AND THE VIN WHEN CALLING PARTS. (Figure 2)

Using the Service Frame Matrix (Figure 3), locate the vehicle being serviced and year of frame being replaced from the top of the matrix, and the available frame from the top of the matrix. The matrix is established with the assumption of 2008 MY frames being available to service earlier frames. The matrix will provide necessary parts to complete service frame replacement.

NOTE:SOME FRAMES FOR PAST MODEL YEARS MAY BE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE PARTS SYSTEM.
