Go to a junk yard/Ebay/Here/Ford and get a new one, Change it on your next oil change.

Good luck

The labor is what kills, they say the engine has to be raised.

Hey

Its not really a terrible job. Not fun but atleast you can get it out without pulling the motor. Thats the first 6.0 pan I've heard of rusting.

I see the direction of your thought, And was thinking the same thing after my first post. I hope he gets back on and reads it before proceeding.
This could be a pretty easy argument IF they have been doing his oil changes and there is nothing in the remarks section of his invoices over the past 2 or 3 visits and they deny the warr work. Once again, Easy argument. You could almost point the figure at the dealer for incompe

But I do my oil changes, so do not know if dealers have a comment section on there work invoices?

I do my own oil changes and saw it was rusting. I had mentioned it to a service tech at the dealer a couple months ago. But I paid no attention to the time of the warranty, I was just thinking how I had lots of time since I only have 78,xxx miles on it.

I will of course try to get them to cover it, but they said it is very unlikely. It will cost about $1500.
