Re: '97 Ranger Wiper Cuts Out

See my post above for my 1997, but I replaced the entire switch (which includes the turn signal level.) If yours is an '88, the column configuration is likely different.

Re: '97 Ranger Wiper Cuts Out

When replacing the switch, no need to remove lower panel. It's 3 Phillips-head screws on the shroud, and two T20 Torx screws on the switch. Biggest pain is getting the top shroud out from over the...

Re: Seat Belt Buckle Failure

That's what I ended up doing. Agree that the torx bolt is an odd size - maybe only other use is the brake caliper.

Re: Seat Belt Buckle Failure

The latch mechanism doesn't look easily repairable. To the junkyard it is.

Re: Seat Belt Buckle Failure

Looks like it's just one big ol' Torx bolt on the floor and that's it.

Re: Seat Belt Buckle Failure

Yep, no one sits there. For swap, looks like I'd have to unbolt from the floor.

Re: 1997 Fuel Filter Shenanigans

Jiffy Lube also wants $69.95 to do a fuel filter. Drove by them the other day with my new filter installed and gave them a hand signal out the window :p

Arrow Seat Belt Buckle Failure

So my driver's side seat belt will not latch in the buckle; it keeps popping out. I sprayed a heavy dose of WD-40 inside the buckle, but to no avail. The buckle plate seems to be permanently...

Re: 1997 Fuel Filter Shenanigans

Finally made another attempt a few weeks ago and got the outlet fitting off. Just needed a bit more oomph and wrangling, as MDRide suggested. It was the smaller end of the metal scissor tool, labeled...

Re: 1997 Fuel Filter Shenanigans

Won't that damage the inside of the fitting?

1997 Fuel Filter Shenanigans

Well I cannot get the outlet (engine-side) fitting off of the fuel filter and it's driving me bonkers. I was able to do it four years ago at its last filter change with the metal scissor tool:

Not the wiper motor.

'97 Ranger Wiper Cuts Out

Start the truck, turn on the windshield wipers, they run for 10 seconds and then shut off. The wipers return to their parked position, i.e. they don't stop in the middle of the windshield.

Agreed. Had the same problem you are describing with my '97 4-cyl Ranger. Replaced the Idle Air Control valve and started right up with no subsequent problems.
