I had all the TSB's done on my 2018 when they replaced them about a year ago. Was supposed to have all the updated parts. Started making noise and it's under the knife. Not too happy considering I'm headed to Baja in 3 days
If yours was repaired already and failed again it's always blamed on poor work by the repair tech.

Like Nex said…it’s been resolved in production for over 3 years. Way before Gen 3 launched.

When did you have your 2017 repaired? Did you have FSA 21B10 completed?

As far as $8k…that’s not even in the ballpark. It’s a few hundred in parts and 10 hours labor.
What do you charge per hr for labor? $125?

If you are offering new cam phaser installation services for $400 in parts + $1250 for labor I think you would have a lot of out-of-warranty Raptor owners taking you up on that.

It's been in the $3500 to $4000 range for people paying out of pocket that I've seen on this forum.

Where did I say I’m offering services? You don’t own one of these vehicles nor have anything useful to contribute in this thread, you’re here to talk trash and derail the discussion as usual.

Ford got back to my service tech and they are willing to pay $1400 towards the repair. When I asked again what the total would be, they said around $2500 this time. I may take them up on it but also considering buying a used 2022 right now.

$2500…oof! The problem resurfaced after only 15k miles. No guarantee it won’t resurface again. Your truck is saying, “let me go”. If you’re already “considering“ a used 22, you’re halfway there. I know man, commitment is tough! LOL We’re here for support; we got ya! Come on & join the Gen 3 crew. :cool:

My '18 had cam phasers replaced @15k, and 35k, and started the rattle again so I traded her in @ 50k miles for a '20. My '20's were replaced once @60k, it rattled for a good 10k miles before I had it done during which the computer fix was implemented but was already rattling. Finally traded her in @80k miles for my '23. First cam phaser fix took a month, second a week, the last on the '20 took 2 days. Would do it all again if I had to but I'm so glad they finally fixed the problem!
