Toronto, Ontario – Ford has announced an update to its I-CAR procedure for replacing the outer box side of F-150 trucks, announced in mid-December.
This latest update from Canada’s most popular OEM announced that the replacement of F-150 outer box sides may now “now include the use of self-piercing rivets (SPRs) in specified locations.”
This update only affects F-150 models including and newer than the 2015 model. Super Duty trucks will not be able to use SPRs for the repair procedure.
Ford said that they made the update to account for a newly sourced SPR that allows the specialized rivets to be used in outer box side replacements.
