HI, first off I'm not new here, just haven't logged in for so long that my old log in didn't work. Just got a slightly used 2012 6.7l 4 door dually. It has the factory fith/goose hitch. I have the instructions for the goose ball, but I can't get the plastic "T" to pull up. I think it has been in there so long that maybe the internals are corroded or the ball is a little beat up so I can't pull the release thing up. Tried lubing it, heating it, pry bar (broke some plastic). Truck computer says it has had a trailer hitched up for 202,000 miles, (see slightly used above):icon_wink:

Thanks for any help or advice.

When my B&W got stuck, I just hooked up the trailer and then jacked up the trailer and it lifted the ball out. But that won't work with the Ford OEM ball because you need to lift the plastic release to get the ball bearings to retract.

Hmmm? Interesting problem. I'm going to make sure I keep my ball greased now
