    Hi ladies and gentlemen,

    So, I'm trying to get going over here as someone to goto to get your explorer fixed.
    I had my own business in Canada for 6 years fixing Explorers and Rangers.

    So, if you need any work doing, or want accessories fitting, give me a shout.

    I don't make any money on the parts and my Labour rates are a lot less than most garages.

    Admins delete if not allowed..

    Thanks

    Si

    Hi Si

    I have owned my explore 20 years. Has become part of the family.

    Do you turn your hand to all explorer work?

    Are you breaking any?

    I am looking for a driver's side rear leaf spring U-bolt plate. The plate that connects the bottom of the air damper to the leaf spring.

    Thanks

    Neil

    Hi,

    Yes I do most repairs and I break them if they're beyond saving.
    I've got what you need

    Hi Si

    Is the u-bolt plate in good condition...not too rusty? How much would you charge including postage to TN15 8NR?

    Thanks

    I'll check it out when I get home and send some pics. It seemed solid enough If I remember eight.
    Light wire brush and some hammerite should be ok.

    £25 shipped?

    Hi Simon

    I hadn't heard from you so ordered one from the US. Thanks anyway.

    I am thinking about having a refurb/ overhaul on my 98 explorer, so may be in touch to discuss.

    Thanks

    Neil
