Called Ford first thing this morning. Nothing promised, but the guy I
spoke to said he'd received a lot of calls about this problem and
would "See what I can do for you."
Called my mechanic (the only other guy on the planet I'll ever let
work on my vehicles) and he said "I've done dozens of those insert
fixes. Bring in on over and we'll have it out of here Wednesday at
the latest" Just waiting on the tow truck right now...
