    2005 Ford Explorer XLT

    On the bodywork end with that back hatch I would just find a non cracked replacement. It is repairable but I would either replace entirely or just leave it as is because the old one even after being repaired will probably just crack again. They all tend crack because it’s a stiff ridged plastic...

    Any recommendations other than Rockauto for lower rear control arm bushings?

    I agree with stynx rock auto is just the supplier not the brand, they almost always have the cheapest prices and carry almost every motorcraft part you could buy for these cars so it’s pointless to look elsewhere honestly. Dealers will have the same parts for you just more expensive

    Rear reflector

    Scrap what I said I apologize I believe your issue finding it comes from the fact that no left hand drive models have this reflector I don’t think I’ve ever seen a third gen with one over here in the US.

    Will seats from Mountaineer and Aviator fit Explorer?

    Will seats from Mountaineer and Aviator fit Explorer?

    I know for a fact by pulling parts from a junkyard mountaineer and explorer seats share the same guts, I’m not sure about the aviator as it had a cooled seat option I believe? But explorer-mountaineer swap is just plug and play really all the same if the seats carry the same option. Also this is...

    Noisy Transmission, noisy when standing still in gear quieter out of gear.

    I’ve had the same thing for years sounded a little better after the transmission got rebuilt I just ignore it my exhaust overpowers it now anyways so it doesn’t bug me much. The cats on these cars also like to rattle a ton.

    Wheel well trimming?

    Ah I getcha now sorry about that. In the rear where it’s folded the 2 sides are spot welded together so you should be able to trim some away, not sure how much before it’ll begin to split open I’d guess you’ll be able to take atleast 1/4-1/2 before dealing with any of that. That area also has a...

    Wheel well trimming?

    Kind of hard to see what those pictures are of but these are solid frame vehicles so you should be able to trim to your hearts content and not really affect to much

    Door Ajar light staying on amongst other problems.

    I had this issue and fixed it by spraying the latches inside all the doors with wd40 worth a try taking everyone has a can lying around somewhere. The entire car went absolutely haywire when it thought the one door was opening and closing.

    Flood damage?

    Yeah lol I wish I didn’t but didn’t exactly see it until it was to late and figured better go through than back out and let it soak in. It was probably a little under bumper height so I’m just gonna change every fluid probably
