Engineering Improvements

Post  FalconEh on December 13th 2014, 7:34 pm

The engineering dept at the big Blue Oval need to understand that some things do NOT need to be redesigned...AKA the current generation of Super Duty truck headlights that through the re-engineered design process require the user to remove the grill to change the headlight bulbs cyclops geek Not that this is a difficult task, but are you freaking kidding me... this is your best engineering effort...some things were done right the first time!

that's all. elephant

Personally, I think the government should make them go back to 'sealed beams", or only GLASS lenses.

The yellowed and corroded lenses of older vehicles causing drivers to not be able to see very well in dark places definitely are the cause of many accidents; I would presume some deaths, too.

Methinks they make considerable compromises to common sense engineering in order to appease the styilsts. If they don't keep making it LOOK like a new vehicle, it AIN'T a new vehicle.

I'll take pulling the grill over pulling the damn batteries in the older PSD trucks to change the bulbs...

Also cannot get sealed beam in 20,000K run your but off the road bulbs.

Why should we have to remove the grill or the batteries?... is it too much to ask to be able carry a screwdriver and a spare headlight or 2 so when that rare occasion when both lights burn out on the interstate your chances of being killed are less (pretty high if you have to remove the battery and your flashers no longer work)
