How do you replace a window regulator in Ford Falcon?

To replace the window regulator in a ford falcon depends on the model, however the process is fairly similar. 1. Remove door trim (there should be some screws along the outside edges and behind the door handle) 2. Tape the door glass to the door or have someone hold it up as the next step will let it go. 3. Remove the two bolts that attach the door glass to the regulator. 4. Disconnect the power motor connector. 5. Remove the 4 bolts that hold the regulator to the door. 6. Remove the regulator and replace, perform all steps in reverse order.

What is the stereo color coded wiring diagram on a 1991 Ford Econoline van?

Red is your 12 volt regulated, yellow is the 12 volt constant which serves as memory, black of course is a ground, your blue wire is a power antenna, and the rest of the wires are for speaker leads. You really need to buy a wire harness kit for it and a mounting kit as well. If not, pending on what factory oem spec are or if it as a factory amp then you have to bypass it as well but the wire kit comes with all hardware needed to do so. Don't ever cut wires and try to figure out whats what! You will do severe damage to fuses and burn out other components.

How can you clean the evaporator in an Ford EB Falcon?

Just came back as I found out how to do this a couple of weeks ago.

The glovebox comes out. The fanspeed regulator comes out which leaves a small square about 4cm x4cm with which to work through. The evaporator is about the size of a pineapple (from what I could see) and cleaning it involved using a bottle brush, screwdriver, wire , and just about anything long enough to get right up and in there considering only your fingers can get inside that hole to work. You do have to be careful that you don't put the screwdriver right through and burst the core. In the end I used degreaser as well. There was virtually no air exchange on mine as it was packed tight with mud and lint and many many leaves.

A few hours later and I have good air pressure coming out my vents again.

others. Apparently only a few makes and models have this access, Commodore is not one. Cheers, Jo

Changing au falcon knock sensor?

Make your way to the front of the engine, remove the plastic v-belt cover from the power steering pump inlet, the sensor sits just above the crank pulley. There's a plastic plug with two wires which needs to be pulled out from the knock/crank sensor. Then use a small spanner to loosen the 2 screws on either side of the sensor.

Where is the fuse box for a 1963 Ford Falcon wagon located?

I have a 1967 Ford Galaxie, i know different models, but i couldn't find it, until i looked in the glove compartment, so try looking in there.

I the trunkThere are fuses on top off the headlight switch. There is a button on the side off the switch housing you push to remove the knob and handle. Then remove switch from dash for access. I have never had one blow.If your adding a radio there are some hot leads you can tie into. Check with a volt meter to see if they have constant voltage or are activated by the light dimmer switch or come on with the ignition.


I added a 2nd fuse block and mounted it on the drivers kick panel for add on power leads

Dashboard Lights and Gauges
Ford Falcon

What are the meanings of the dashboard symbols and warning lights on a Ford Falcon?

Read your owners manual if you have one. Red light is normally a warning of low oil pressure. SRS is an indication something is wrong with the air bag system. Check Engine Light means there is a problem with the emissions system. Maintenance Required means some scheduled maintenance is required, normally an oil/filter change. Orange or red light can mean engine is overheating. Can also be a gauge with a thermometer for engine temperature. Charging gauge tells you if the alternator is charging your battery. TC or TCS or ETC stands for Traction Control. If the light is on there is a problem or the traction control is turned off. OD stands for overdrive.

Can a 292 Ford Y-block fit in a 1962 Falcon?

Yes, but not without some modifications to the Falcon. The shock towers need to be notched and other modifications made within the engine compartment.

For the full story on putting a 312 Mercury into a '60 Falcon sedan, see "The Falcon Gets a V8," Hot Rod Magazine, July 1960:

-Dave Not quite. The 1960 falcon is a very different car from the 62. From 62 onward the Falcon, Fairlane and Galaxies were established, replacing different trim lines of Full size Fords. A '60 Falcon can take a Y-Block because it is very close to the '60s cars that came with a Y-block, and not so much like the '62.
It is doable, relatively easy too. But watch out for '60 and '61 swaps, they are not exactly the same car as a '62+.

-Flying Jester
Also, Falcons are a lot different in South America, they can easily take Y-Blocks in some years.

How do you fix the temperature control lever of an EB Series 2 Ford Falcon?

I just checked the lever on mine that switches from fresh air to recirculated , this morning :) The procedure is the same.

You need to get behind the controls to view the connections at the back.

Below the dash on each side of the steering wheel are two rectangular removable bits. On the right hand side, it is the part that houses the 'boot release' button. On the left it is the same shape but without the button. Unscrew these. Look up into the gap left and you will see another screw for each side. Unscrew these too.

You will be removing the black 'lining' that goes around whole dash above the steering wheel. It goes around the airvent control switches as well as the speedometer etc.

You will see all the screws holding those air controls into place. Remove them and slide the compartment out. You can then check if any of the wiring or other bits and pieces have come loose behind your temperature control lever.

It isn't hard but will save some $$$ if you do it instead of the mechanic.CHeers,JO

Where can you get carb adjustment specs for a 1966 Ford Ranchero 289 motor Ford Co 2 barrel?

The best place I've found for these specs are in the manual put out by MOTOR. Great set of manuals. You can find specification in a HAYNES manual as well. You can order a manual for this car at either website. You may even be able to get your local car care associates ie. O'reilly, Autozone, Advance, NAPA to order you a manual. Check your local library for the manual as well. I've used many a manual from the local library to fix a vehicle when in need of a specification. Check for vacuum leaks from vacuum hoses before making any adjustments. Without knowing what specifications you need I'm guessing. Are you are wanting to adjust the needle valve adjustments? Float Adjustment? Needle valve adjustments are Low speed and High speed adjustment. ONe is for Low speed and will affect how the car idles and the other will affect Higher speeds. I've always adjust the low speed side by turning it in till it is hand tight, don't wrench on it or you can destroy the seats. Turn it back out till it's about 2 1/2 turns out, start the car then adjust it till the engine idles without rocking back and forth. For the high speed adjustment I always tighten it hand tight then back it out about 2 1/2 turns and adjust until when I accelerate the engine it accelerates without hesitation from low side to high side. This will get you in a ball park setting. Check for vacuum leaks while you are in there and replace any hoses that are more than 3-5 years old. Most vacuum hoses can be had cheap and cause a lot of retuning for no reason if you have leaks. For the float valve, I've always removed the seat that the float is valve is using and cleaned the screen first. Then I adjust the float so that it will shut off before the top of the float is 1/8 inch from the top of the float bowl. It has worked for me in almost evey carb I've rebuilt. I hope this is helpful.

How do you remove the rear seat of a Ford Falcon ef?

I assume that you are talking about the seat squab, or base.

There are clips welded to the floor. These clips look a bit like the number 1. They face towards the rear of the car though. Metal loops on the underside of the seat base hook under the top part of the "number 1".

To unclip the base, you have to firmly push the base down and rearwards, then upwards. This sounds harder than it is.

To clip the base back in, you need to carefully line up the loops on the sloping part, at the top of the clips. Then push the base down, firmly. You will feel the loops slide down the slope and then pop under the clip.

The backrests should unbolt. Just flip them forward and you should find bolts under the carpet. Although, you probably wont need to remove these, if fitting seat covers.

The side bolsters are held in place by a bolt at the bottom and by the striker plate, for the backrest lock.

Best of luck.

What is the towing capacity of a 1963 Ford Falcon station wagon?

There are a few factors that will complicate things...

First, what size is your engine? a V8 will obviously have more towing power than a straight six.

Is the car a manual or automatic? A manual is more versatile and lets you use the whole range of engine power, an auto may require a transmission cooler for heavy duty towing.

What are you towing? The tongue weight of a trailer is a big factor when towing with a car.

What condition is your car in? A forty year old car with an original engine probably couldn't pull a drunken sailor off a dead hooker.

The straight answer: if your car runs well, a reasonably in shape adult male can lift the tonge of your trailer and your car has a manual transmission and a straight six engine then you can pull about 2000 kg max, a little more with a V8. a little less with an auto transmission. The best way is to test it out, tow the trailer around for a while, if you really struggle up hills then it is best not to do long distance, trailering is tough on a car and will be double tough on a car that old, make sure your brakes are in good working order!!! - hope this helps, good luck!

How to reset remote central locking on a v reg ford galaxy?

Depending on what type of central locking you have there a two mwethods and by reseting I gather you mean reprogramming the fobs to the cars locking system.

First you need to ascertain if you have IR (Infra Red) or RF (Radio) Central locking, the R plate came with both.

IR cars have little square black windows on the exterior door handles at the front.

RF cars dont, but the cool thing about RF equipped cars is that a 3 button key from a newer ford will open the boot/trunk remotly too!

Anyway to reprogram IR keys do this:

Put the key into the ignition and turn to position I. After 10 seconds the red alarm LED should illuminate. As soon as it does remove the key from the ignition - the LED should remain lit. Open the drivers window. Point the remote key at the front door sensor and press the rear button until the light on the transmitter illuminates, keep the button pressed until it does! With the rear button held in press the front button 4 times then release both at the same time. The control lights in both the clock and fob will flash 4 times to indicate sucseful programming. Turn the ignition back on to exit programming mode

To reprogram RF keys do this:

Insert the ignition key and turn from position II to position 0 and back four times within three seconds. Remove the ignition key. During the next 20 seconds press one of the transmitter buttons on each key you wish to program. The warning system LED wil flash to confirm programming. You have to code each and every key each time you do this.

I used this method for my P reg mondeo (IR) but used position 11 not pos 1 and it worked a treat!

How To

How to change alternator belt on Ford Falcon?

Loosen the bolts holding the alternator in place and then loosen the bolt on the bracket with the slot. Slide the alternator down the slot until the belt is loose enough to remove. Install the new belt and the slide the alternator back until the belt is tight. Now you need to set the belt deflections. When free span is less than 12 inches between pulleys, belt deflection should be 1/8 to 1/4 inch. When free span is longer than 12 inches, belt deflection should be 1/4 to 1/2 inch. Check the deflection by pressing the belt halfway between pulleys. Tighten down all bolts to 30 lb/ft of torque.

How do you determine whats wrong with the cruise control in an ef falcon when it sometimes works?

Behind the steering wheel is a part called the "clock spring" or something of the sort. I had the same problem with my EF. I had that replaced and it all works well now. Just out of curiosity hold the ON switch and push RES. When i do this my horn sounds. Just wondering if i stuffed up when i put my clock spring in.

What does the motor under the air filter inside the wheel arch do in reference to a 1995 ef falcon futra?

This "motor" as u call it is simply the ABS. This is found on EF Futura and above. It is not a motor at all, but does have brake lines going in, and four coming out. You should be able to trace the one closest to the front right wheel. The sensors work by having a disk with holes in it spinning with the wheel on the inside of the brake rotor with a magnetic pick up sending information about the speed of the wheel back to the computer which then triggers a release of brake to a wheel that is turning slower than the others (IE - The computer thinks it has locked up).
