    Part number was already revised sasquatch, as I mentioned in a previous post that you chose to ignore. You demonstrate the same behavior as Kuan, and we all see how he ended up. You have no facts or data, you're just in this thread to create rumors and stir up trouble. You don't even understand the principles of cam phaser operation.

    Ford GT uses the same cam phasers as the Raptor. Why don't you go over to their forum and explain how the Gen II GT is "going in the shitter" and how "craptastic" you think everything is. While you're at it, you might as well tell them how their values are plummeting from the issue as well, since you're on quite a roll with the bullshit.

    It definitely takes some considerable time to remove/reinstall the cab; on an F-150 it should easily add a couple hours to the job. I'm guessing that the technicians who choose to do so are making the time up during the repair, since all of the components are more accessible. Personally, unless it's a consistent repair that justifies spending the time to perfect the procedure in order to expedite the process or make the repair simpler, I just follow the Workshop Manual procedure.

    With the front cover removed, the engine oil will be exposed to coolant draining from the front of the engine block. This is the reason that the oil change is required. It's free to the customer, it just gets billed out on the warranty claim.

    I've read a few pages of your posts and don't appreciate when members seem to do nothing but stir the pot looking for a fight. Please think about that over the next week off.

    Anyone get a ford buyback? I’m currently working on getting one for my 2018 Raptor. Bought a leftover back in July. Had the valve covers replaced at 3k miles, and now cam phasers at 10k. Trucks been in the shop collectively for almost a month..

    Sounds like it will be bullet proof when you get it back. Sucks to be making payments and having it sit though. Unless you paid cash.

    Sounds like a dealership issue. A Valve cover and cam phaser replacement can be completed in less than 2 days by a competent certified technician. If you contact Ford Customer Service they will often make a payment on your behalf for the time that the vehicle has been out of service, even if it's the dealer's fault.

    With over 1,000,000 f150’s built each year, there are going to be issues with some. Even if 1% have issues, that’s 10,000 per year. Empirically saying, it’s mathematically unrealistic to assume a truck isn’t going to have an issue and saying for 80k it shouldn’t have issues.

    If the raptor was made on a dedicated line with dedicated engineers like some high end manufacturers you might have a point. But anything mass produced will have issues. This isn’t a ford specific problem.

    Sure it sucks if you have the problem but to assume it won’t because of the price you paid is living in fantasy land. I’m sure ford would love to have no issues Or warranty claims but when you rely on other to make parts, apart from QC sampling, it’s a shot in the dark for anyone.

    Build and assembly quality is a ford issue. Individual component issues are most likely another manufacture.

    Just had the cam phasers replaced on my truck last week. I walked in on Tuesday morning without an appointment, and I got there as soon as the service department opened because it was my day off. I showed the service advisor this video and he said "Yup, more cam phasers. We just finished two trucks." They gave me a 2020 Explorer Limited with 20 miles on it that had just been brought in as a new loaner vehicle, and then they took my truck into the shop. My truck was done in two days but it took me 4 days to pick it up due to my work schedule. However, I made them aware of my work situation in advance so it wasn't a problem. I returned the loaner Explorer (I put about 350 miles on it) and jumped back into my truck on Saturday morning. My truck has a little under 24k miles on it.

    If you wouldn’t mind, would you let us know what the part number was with the new phasers?
