yeah you need at least the last 8 and you have a fighting chance. lol
Fords system is good if you have been doing it a long time. they use a base part number system.
so if you can memorize all the base part numbers you are good to go. Very rarealy do you need to enter a vin for ford.
If you need front rotors. just enter base part number 1125 in the proper field and it will bring you right to front rotors.
rear rotors 2C1256, front pads 2001, rear pads 2200
and you get a part number like F6YZ-2001-AA that would be something like front pads for a 96my crown victory or something lol
Its defintly not as user friendly as subarus system but then again subaru doesnt have 80 billion different cars, and the same car that can have 10 different drivetrains lol.
Subaru is getting more complicated with vin breaks though. it use to be alot easier, part numbers where alot more universal, but its all growing pains.
What was the point of this thread again?
Oh yeah, the dealer doesnt log your vin.
