    It truly bugs me that my vehicle isn’t covered by the recall. Seems like a pretty common issue. Makes me want to sell it.

    November 2018 my 2014 Explorer had the left cv joint break in 2 while driving. Literally break apart. Only had 81k miles. It was towed and replaced with my extended warranty. Picked it up and it was making a clicking noise coming from the steering wheel. Went back in and they replaced the tie rod ends, only for it to keep doing it. Ended up replacing the steering gear & problem solved. Fast forward to today, steering wheel is making the same clicking sound when turning. My Explorer is at 88k miles and I'm sure it's the rack and pinion again. Will update once I take it in.

    Just got done installing a 3rd party reman R&P in a 2011 Explorer. Just wondering if I need to re-flash now. Car steers smoothly (as it should) and alignment is perfect.

    Anyone have any experience with installing a reman R&P without re-flashing?

    Havent seen anyone get one installed and function properly without a reflash.

    Just curious, how much did the Reman cost?

    Going to get it flashed to the vehicle next week.

    Price for reman was $565 after core refund. Comes with a lifetime warranty.
