Does new Motorcraft UVCH address the connector issue

I am going to replace my glow plugs, gasket, and UVCH this week based on some bad tests once I get my parts in from Riff Raff and I am curious if I will have to do the fiddy cent trick or the shims? Does the newer stock from motorcraft address that issue already.

Ish.

Its better, but not foolproof.

I would use zipties, rather than the 50 cent mod.
It has failed before.

Trying to visualize how a zip tie would work, not doubting you just not seeing it. I will search but do you have al link to a picture or something. Thanks

To answer my own question for future viewers it does. It comes with plastic post supports on the flexible clip to the point where you cannot insert the ford factory plastic clip. I sure it could still fail but I felt confident enough as it seemed quite sturdy to the point I did nothing extra with zip ties. In other words if you buy a new inventory one you cannot use the clip fix from ford so save your 15 bucks.

I actually had a Ford dealership mechanic suggest a 50 cent fix. Did it 4 years ago, and no more issue.

This guy figured-out how to prevent the "clip" from moving and stopping the connector from unplugging itself with a cut Quarter (X2=.50).

I have done the .50 mod it works great.

For you American's.... Canadian quarters are ferrous so when you drop one down by the pushrod it's easier to get out with a magnet.... I dropped a American quarter and it sucked to remove... magnet wont pick it up
