      This is only given out to Explorer owner's on a need to know basis. And right now, you don't need to know!:)



















      It's an air compressor and a fix-a-flat repair can. IIRC.

      It is an air compressor. You have to slide the seat waaaay forward to get it out.

      Anyone having trouble trying to select the air compressor mode? The knob won't turn to the air compressor mode.

      Surprise under drivers seat, "Limited Model"

      Has any one looked under their driver seat? Go take a look there may be a surprise for you. I have a Limited and under the driver seat is a “Temporary Mobility Kit”, better known as an “air pump”. I mean a really nice one at that.:D

      If I were you, I'd go back to where the vehicle was purchased and explain the situation to them and ask that it be rectified.

      Mine is actually under the middle of the second row seat but I think I'll move it to the drivers seat. Thanks!

      See owners guide. It's made to go under drivers seat. There is velcro that the kit bag fastens to under the seat to keep it there. You have to move the seat all the way up to get it in and out. It's not only an air pump but a can of flat fix too!

      There is a selector switch for air or sealant, I cannot turn mine. Is something wrong or is it designed to only pump air after the sealant has been emptied. I hope not, it would be nice to have an air compressor in the car just in case.

      It's a bear to turn the switch the first time. Took me several minutes of working with it before it turned.

      I felt like I was approaching the yield strength of the value or knob. I will try again.
