So if you didn't see my thread on buying advice; I bought a 99 Supercab 4 door 3.0V6 (FFV?) auto. Need help buying a ranger
So now it's mine; and finding lots of little things to fix; doesn't cause problems; just annoying.
1st is a pain, I think it's the door jamb/latch switch. The dome light was missing all it's bulbs; replaced them and sometimes they go off, sometimes they don't. I soaked the door latch with teflon spray, and that got them to come on & go off most times. I don't think I've seen a door adjar light (could be bulb is out?) and no chime at all for anything (door, key, lights, etc)
I'm going to need to replace the lock actuators as they are just to weak to do anything; do I need to replace the switches too, or just clean them up? If replace which ones do I need? Rockauto has like 8 choices; guess it's either the $12/$18 pair or the $19/$21pair (of course it can't be the $5 ones!)
If someone has an amazon link I have some dollars on there to spend.
Is there a writeup/video to replace the spare tire winch? What all will I need to fix/replace? All I see is a wire hanging down an ince & cutoff.
It does feel like the seats (split 60/40) slide just slightly at stop/takeoff, maybe 1/2" or so. Is there something to tighten up, or fix to stop this?
I did find the instrument cluster backlighting writeup on here, it is AWESOME! I'm going to do that soon, are these led's on amazon what I need for backlighting & warnings?
Thanks to all the help so far!
So far I'm happy with it.
