So, after proclaiming my willingness not to be obsessed with this automobile, what have I spent the night doing???? Researching how to pull up the window sticker. I had the feeling that when I tried this before, without success it was caused by either of 2 problems. One, they gave me the wrong vin number (or I wrote it down wrong) or two, the web site was not credible. So I found a new backdoor into Ford. On the Ford Truck Enthusiasts site there was the following information:
Click on the following link - Don't Worry when you see the "The VIN entered has the wrong link. VIN requested is ..."
In the very top of the page in the address bar it says, ford labels.webview.biz ect..
vin=...........&ref=VL delete the dots and copy your vin # in the dots area, leave all the rest and hit search to the right of it. and walla.
Oooooh it works. I actually got my Window sticker and all the fine print I really do not understand. But I did decipher the build which was 3/19/12 just as the dealer told me. It is being shipped by rail which is why it is taking so long and I am extrapolating here but I think it might be vehicle #000357.
If you own a Ford, try it out. The site said all cars form 2007 on are maintained in this data base.
This is the actual link where I found the info. http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/10...er-lookup.html
