    As previously noted, I recently bought a 1997 Mercury Mountaineer. It is in sound mechanical shape, with only 64K miles, but because it sat for a while the interior has some minor mold issues.

    However, I just met a guy who has a 97 Explorer that he is parting out, and the interior looks great (plus it's leather, whereas I have cloth).

    My question is, are the parts for the Mountaineer and the Explorer interchangeable? I have gotten conflicting answers elsewhere, so I figure you folks would know.

    Thanks!

    Easy answer: Yes.

    You may find some differences in options... Power seats, fog light switch, radio controls on the steering wheel, etc. But for the most part, its all the same.
