Minor Vehicle Repair

This is "new to us" truck we just got at the church. It is a 2002 V-6 Ford F150. We will use it for hauling stuff from Home Depot, hauling brush, picking up equipment, etc.

The previous owner installed custom tail lights, one of which was busted. Since we could not find a matching replacement, I bought factory replacements. Amanda was playing with the tools and was fascinated by the socket wrench, so I showed her how to use it to loosen the bolts to take off the tail light.

Next I showed her how to take the old cover off, unscrew the bulbs and how the new ones would screw in.

Amanda watched me do one and then she did the other one all by herself. She could literally change a tail light by herself now.
