    Windshield Wiper Blade Length

    Good point. I will check for this on my rear glass. I now have 22" driver side and 20" passenger side with no problems driving around town. I do need to check highway driving at speed. BTW, I am in San Antonio, Texas and today (28Jun07) it is really raining! Reportedly 3-4 inches an hour...

    Windshield Wiper Blade Length

    Twenty inches works fine on my 1998 EB Explorer which is the correct size wiper for the wife's Expedition. In measuring, 22 inches will also fit well on the Explorer windshield, both sides. The original wipers I had were 18 inches. I don't know if the larger size would cause motor problems...

    Do i have the pats system

    I found the square on my key! :) It is on one end of the top edge of the key. The small square is actually a rectangle about one-quarter inch long and one-eight inch wide. It appears as if it is a repair to the plastic that was not properly covered and smoothed out.

    Can You Help with a Door Locking Problem?

    You have described my situation in this thread. However, I have not found it to be a problem. In my case, this situation did not occur until after I had maintenance on the driver's lock to replace the electric mechanism and the lock itself which had frozen and was unusable.

    No Auto Lock Only on Driver's Door

    I had the auto lock mechanism fail on the driver's door of my 1998 EB, AWD. It was impossible to operate the lock, so the car was never secured. I replaced the mechanism after many false starts (another story). About two months ago, it stopped working again. I checked it and the electrical...

    '98 Dual Media Audio Sys Controls Inop

    This morning I started the car and turned on the radio. All faceplate buttons work fine. There is something to this that I don't understand and I can't find in the owner's manual. I will keep experimenting and see if I can detect a pattern of operation.
