    You mean besides the fact that it's summer and 90 degrees out with 90% humidity! I'm pretty sure my children and dog feel the same way....

    4 weeks Peter and all they have are 20 of them? Whose supplying the parts or lack there of? It truly makes me want to trade it in on a different brand when I've been loyal to Ford for 20 plus years.

    Oh trust me, I have owned several cars without air conditioning but when you pay $40,000 for a new vehicle you kinda expect it to work for longer than 3 years. I owned my last explorer sport trac for 16 years and had less problems with it then I have had with this one and it was half the cost when it was new. I think vehicle quality is going down hill.....

    Aluminum tubing to rear ac from compressor rotted or oxidized and leaking where they enter cabin at rear ac.
    Replace both tubes $1,800
    Ford is offering to pay half.
    This should never have happened.
    How can I get them to pay for entire job?
    3 2016 explorers at dealership waiting for same parts. Parts are currently not available
    Back up: brought it in for rear brakes picked it up with no ac
    20 days out of warranty
    Thanks for your help!

    Being out of warranty you are lucky that they paid for half.

    Evidently you don't have a extended warranty.

    Welcome to the Forum Dan.:wave:
    I agree with JAPeterson that you are fortunate that Ford is willing to pay half. I also don't understand why there are so many A/C line failures.

    Update: end of week 6 still not fixed. Still no parts. Being told they are going to ship "some" on July 26th but still no guarantee that I will be one of the lucky ones. Dealer is hopeful that I may get lucky because of the amount of time I have been waiting. The saga continues....

    If you are paying out of pocket, you may want to check eBay and other online offerings. I found several rear lines in stock and available for immediate shipment. Some were at ford dealers.

    Oit of warranty is out of warranty. Warranty coverage is black and white and you are lucky Ford picked up half. Should it have happened, no but count your blessings because Ford could have said NO.

    As stated, 1 of the many reasons to get an ESP. Things are just way too expensive on modern vehicles and this 1 repair is more than a 6yr/125k warranty.
