Removal

NOTICE: Battery electric vehicle (BEV), hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) contain a high-voltage battery. Before cutting or welding near the high-voltage battery it must be removed to avoid damage.

NOTE: Left hand (LH) side shown, right hand (RH) side similar.

NOTE: Factory welds may be substituted with resistance or metal inert gas (MIG) plug welds. Resistance welds may not be placed directly over original location. They must be placed adjacent to original location and match factory welds in quantity. Metal inert gas (MIG) plug welds must equal factory welds in both location and quantity.

NOTE: Adequately protect all adjacent areas against cutting, grinding and welding procedures.

  1. Depower the SRS.
    Refer to: Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) Depowering and Repowering (501-20B) .
  1. If Required:
    Dimensionally restore the vehicle to pre-damage condition.
    Refer to: Body and Frame (501-26) .
  1. Remove the underbody shield(s).
  1. Remove the transmission.
    Refer to: Transmission - 1.5L EcoBoost (118kW/160PS) – I4 (307-01A) .
    Refer to: Transmission - 1.6L EcoBoost (132kW/180PS) – Sigma (307-01A) .
    Refer to: Transmission - 2.0L EcoBoost (184kW/250PS) – MI4 (307-01A) .
    Refer to: Transmission - 2.5L Duratec (125kW/170PS) (307-01A) .
    Refer to: Transmission (308-03A) .
  1. Relocate any fuel or brake lines away from the working area.
  1. Remove the welds.
    Use the General Equipment: Spot Weld Drill Bit

Installation

NOTICE: Battery electric vehicle (BEV), hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) contain a high-voltage battery. Before cutting or welding near the high-voltage battery it must be removed to avoid damage.

NOTICE: The high-voltage battery in a battery electric vehicle (BEV), hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) can be affected and damaged by excessively high temperatures. The temperature in some body shop paint booths can exceed 60° C (140° F). Therefore, during refinishing operations, the paint booth temperature must set at or below 60° C (140° F) with a bake time of 45 minutes or less. Temperatures in excess of 60° C (140° F) or bake durations longer than 45 minutes will require the high-voltage battery be removed from the vehicle prior to placing in the paint booth.

NOTICE: If refinishing cure temperatures exceed 60° C (140° F), the charge port light ring on plug-in vehicles must be removed.

NOTE: Left hand (LH) side shown, right hand (RH) side similar.

NOTE: Factory welds may be substituted with resistance or metal inert gas (MIG) plug welds. Resistance welds may not be placed directly over original location. They must be placed adjacent to original location and match factory welds in quantity. Metal inert gas (MIG) plug welds must equal factory welds in both location and quantity.

NOTE: Adequately protect all adjacent areas against cutting, grinding and welding procedures.

    Understanding Your Tire Pressure Monitoring System

    Ford Fusion. Understanding Your Tire Pressure Monitoring System

    The tire pressure monitoring system measures pressure in your road tires and sends the tire pressure readings to your vehicle. You can view the tire pressure readings through the information display. The low tire pressure warning light will turn on if the tire pressure is significantly low. Once the light is illuminated, your tires are under-inflated and need to be inflated to the manufacturer’s recommended tire pressure. Even if the light turns on and a short time later turns off, your tire pressure still needs to be checked.
