ALLDATA Repair: Inside Intelligence

Have you ever experienced a situation where a simple-looking job isn’t quite what it seems? ALLDATA Europe offers one such example on a Ford S-Max

For many modern vehicles, replacement of a failed component to try and rectify an issue is not enough. This can also be the case when removing electrical components to gain access to other items, or when stripping a vehicle to carry out body repair procedures – sound familiar?
Take the ever-popular family vehicle from Ford, the S-Max; recently a bodyshop repairer was stripping the driver’s door from a 2012 vehicle to carry out repairs from a side impact.

Window motor/regulator removal

Upon completion of the work and everything being put back together, the window no longer worked correctly… The repairer was unaware of a procedure that needs to be carried out whenever a window motor is disconnected or replaced.

Thanks to ALLDATA Repair, the repairer was able to complete the job quickly and simply. This and many other procedures can be found in ALLDATA Repair, the vital and comprehensive workshop information portal.

ALLDATA Repair and bodyshop repairers stand side-by-side
