yo gang,
I need TSB 93-1513 JUL 93 Seat Belt - Squeaking Noise.
Have tracked down clunk to the retractor area; local Ford dealer changed ownership & good guy & girl service managers are not with da program.
BTW, it is an XL model without the fancy side panels; visual and hand shake test doesn't end in the clunk though; need a highway expansion strip or + to have the clunk.
TIA

LIGHT TRUCK: 1993 BRONCO


ISSUE:
A squeak condition may develop near the location of the seat belt "D" ring attachment on either side of the vehicle. This occurs because interference exists between the drip rail/roof/sill and the brace body side extension when assembled.

Thanks guys!
I have a loud squeak in that area as well as a death rattle at the bottom near the retractor. Will look closer now.
