Article 1255 - Door Lock Remote Control Rod Retention

TSB #84 - January 26, 1968
(1967 Cortina - All Models)

Customer complaints of an inoperative door lock when the inside remote control handle is actuated are usually attributed to the remote control rod within the door becoming disengaged.

Corrective measures were taken by revising the remote rod attachment. Therefore, vehicles built in June, 1967, should not experience this problem.

Customer complaint vehicles in the field can be corrected by replacing the old remote rod retaining clip with the new clip (part number 211E-7321895A) and washer (part number 44715-S8).

Refer to the "workshop manual" for installation instructions.
