back window leaks. I was told that the cargo light would solve problem it appears to me that the light has nothing to do with sealing the window. Will changing the light help me? Also do I need to remove the head liner to get to the clip on the wire or is mine just stuck?
To better assist you can you tell me if you have the regular F150, 4WD pickup or is it a F150 4WD super crew? Also, can you provide the exact engine size by liter and the 8th digit of your VIN to better answer your question.
