Hey Chubb (Tim),
I bought my 2004 Brazilian built F 250 from my local Ford Dealer, (100 yards down the road) in DEC 2006 from memory.
In the now 7 years since then, they have never contacted me even once, about the CPS recall. I have a spare one that I bought myself from IH Navistar (the blue one for their harvester engines) that I keep in the pocket of the drivers door in case I ever need it.
Mine still has the original one in it.
I don't s'pose you have anything from a Ford dealer in writing about the recall that I could go see my local dealer with, to ask why I was never advised please?
I hate going in with nothing to prove my claim. They weren't much help to me once, with a Ford extended warranty claim when I was 1000's of miles away and no dealer close.
I would love to know how your s'posed to get at the CPS retaining nut to change CPS on our RH Drive Brazillian built models - coz the steering box & rods and control arms etc are all in the way of getting your hands or any tool up in there.
I thought about shooting it off with my .243 once but decided against it thus far.
We Aussies should have a F truck appreciation group with a annual get together / BBQ or something for each state, to exchange knowledge and get to know other owners etc!
There's not that many of us.
