Actually, it isnt that big a deal.. How many wires are u talking? Plus itll avoid future headaches. Do it right the 1st time, or youll be doing it right the second time.

Tell me about it, like everyone telling you to upgrade your trans when u build a 3.0 and not listening. Sux taking all tht crap out again. lol

Seriously, just follow your pigtail up, replace the wire, use some but connectors and tape it up, itll save you a ton of hassle, trust me.

CSVT#49's how to is one harness. The recall has 4 harnesses. The $600 is for all 4 harness. Check with Bill Jenkins if you can purchase just the one that you need. Read the posted links.

Do you think Ford will replace my wiring harness? My cooling fan isn't working until you wiggle the harness. My mechanic(used to work for Ford) said the harness was a recall, but my car is over ten years old and has less than 100k miles.

I hope I don't have to buy the harness.

Well technically if you read the recall it covers an additional 10yr 100,000 so i would think you might be able to get them to but with that year i dont know. worth a try though

KerryKool,
I don't think they will replace it free as it is 10 years old. But you could try asking and see what they say.

As for the fan harness, that can be purchased individually for about $200. Some CEGers have replaced just that.

However, you should check the connectors first. Then, I would also suggest opening the outer cover (of the fan harness) to see if any of the wiresis flaking off.

Edit. I thought you were going to do the moderndino zetec fan fix, or did that not help.
