2001-Newer Ford Excursion/99-Newer F250-F750 Super Duty FP-102 Base Instructions

March 5th, 2010 · No Comments

The FP-102 (‘01-Newer Excursion and ’99-Newer F250 – F750) is a no-holes base. Installing a no-holes base does not require drilling any holes into the vehicle. The base mounts under the seat bracket and is compressed to the floor using the seat bolts. Note: For extra stability, the use of a Brace 2 or Brace 3 support brace is recommended.

Mounting the FP-102 Base to a passenger side bucket seat: (See Figure 1)
1. Remove the front seat bolts from the passenger seat. While lifting the front of the seat, slide the legs of the FP-102 under the passenger seat mounting brackets. When the legs of the FP-102 are centered under the seat mounting brackets, let the seat settle back into place. The legs of the seat brackets each have a large depression where the seat bolt passes through. These depressions will align with the holes in the legs of the FP-102.
2. If you have difficulty aligning the front seat bolts with the FP-102 in place, try loosening the rear seat bolts. This will give you enough play to align the holes.
3. Fasten the front passenger seat and the FP-102 with the seat bolts that were removed in step 1.
4. Tighten the rear seat bolts if they had to be loosened.

Mounting the FP-102 Base to a bench seat: (See Figure 2)
1. Remove the front seat bolt from the passenger side of the seat. While lifting the front of the seat, slide the outer leg of the FP-102 under the passenger seat mounting bracket. When the leg of the FP-102 is centered under the seat mounting bracket, let the seat settle back into place. The leg of the seat bracket has a large depression where the seat bolt passes through. This depression will align with the hole in the leg of the FP-102.
2. Most Ford vehicle floor pans (when used with a bench seat) have a hole in the floor with a welded nut on the underside of the vehicle. This hole is usually covered with a plastic plug. If there is no existing factory hole in the floor pan, you must drill one.
3. Cut a small hole in the floor covering and remove the plastic plug.
4. Place the bench seat spacer (supplied in the hardware bag) in the hole of the inner leg of the FP-102. Align the hole in the spacer with the hole in the floor.
5. Tighten down the inner leg of the FP-102 with the M12 x 38MM long bolt and bench seat washer that were supplied in the hardware bag. If it was necessary to drill a hole in the floor of the vehicle, a fender washer and lock nut will be required on the underside of the vehicle to tighten down the base.
6. Tighten down the passenger side of the seat and the outer leg of the FP-102 with the seat bolt that was removed in step 1.
