The OEM 4x4 vac solenoid lacked a shield on the top vent cap to prevent water running off the cowl from entering the vac lines for the 4x4 locking system..

Oem replacement came as the original design, and the newer style with the top shield was approx 35-40 percent more in cost.

This part appears to have been made in the same factory as OEM Motorcraft parts and fits perfectly. You may have to move the solenoid to the other slot in the bracket for the vac lines to connect, but that doesn't affect the function.

It says it's a "Direct Fit" for my 2005 F150 but I tried two hoping the first was defective, does not work as a 4wd solenoid, will not disengage the IWE's, stays in 4wd. Use motorcraft 6L3Z-9E441-A.

    Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Solenoid, 4WD Engage And Emissions Purge:

    My 4x4 would engage but tue light wouldn't illuminate. I stuck this new bad boy in my truck and Boom!! The light turned on. I guess the original solenoid would short out because water would drip down onto the solenoid. But the cover on the new one fixes the issue.

            Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Solenoid, 4WD Engage And Emissions Purge:

            Because of its location between the firewall and the battery, the solenoid was difficult to remove and reinstall. I was going to try to re-use the original bracket, but couldn't get it (the solenoid)to snap into place. I think I was pretty close, but couldn't quite get it to catch. The new bracket provided much more protection from the elements, but it was really tough fitting my hands and the wrench into the small area at the same time. probably should have used magnetic socket.

                  Had some problems with 4wd and my auto locking hubs, Ford OE came with the sensor without a top covering it so water and hazardous fluids may get in the lines easier, this is a great replacement and fixed my problem for now. grinding noises and clicking gone. Easy installation 10mm long socket required.
