    Squeak from pully?

    I also have a squeak that recently is going on, I think it's because the change of weather with it getting colder. I'm going to change the serpentine belt cause it's about 5 years old then if it's still squeaking, I'll change the pully or the tensioner. I prefer to change the belt instead of...

    2003 Mountainer Front Diff

    They aren't that hard to change. The gear ratio sticker might still be attached to yours but if not there's a door code or just give the vin to the dealer & they can tell you which is the correct kind you have.

    Air Bag Code #34

    I'm thinking of cutting the connections under the seat & putting new connectors there. That might be the fix instead of cleaning the connections & playing around with them espically when the new pretensioner is doing the same thing.

    Air Bag Code #34

    I've had the same problem for a while now. I disconnected the wires under the seat, sprayed them all & reconnected them. The light went out for a few minutes then came right back on. I got another pretensioner from another 02 explorer and same thing, the light comes on & doesn't go off!

    2002 Explorer Air Bag Light

    I still have this problem. I checked the connections & it was good for a few hours & back to that 3 4 blink. I got a new pretensioner from the junk yard & it still gives that blink.

    No airflow from dash vents

    I wish those pictures loaded up cause I have the same problem with my vent. The plastic tab piece broke off & tight spot to drill & wire it. I have that whole assembly to change from the junkyard but taking the dash apart is a pain in the ass it seems. They already had the dash out so taking...

    How to: Replace Front Blend Door Actuator in 3rd Gen Ex.

    What happened to all the pictures? I did this 2 times in my explorer, 02 xlt & I never had to cut any part of the dash. Hardest part was getting under there to the right position to get out then get the new one back in.

    Sounds like the bearings or maybe just a bad tire?

    ABS light on - Where are sensors located?

    2002 Explorer XLT over here. I just changed out my rear ABS sensor this morning & the light is still on. I also changed both my front hubs few months ago. What else is recommended? I'm thinking ofor disconnecting the battery for a few hours, maybe the computer needs to reset itself?

    Sagging door

    I changed my hinge that was loose. It lasted for a few months but now it's sagging & there is no play in these hinges. I'm about to take the fender off and try to adjust it that way or have the garage weld it so the hinge don't drop again.

    Air only comes out of the dashboard vents. Help. :-(

    This actually just happened to me last month. I saw the broken tab on the floor but didn't kno what it was from. Good thing I didn't throw it away. Then I opened the glove box and saw what was broke. Do they sell just that plastic piece cause glue will not hold that. It needs to be plastic...

    This is the 2nd time I had to change mine. I have a 2002 XLT. What are the brands we should avoid or what besides the OEM is safe to replace with?

    04 Explorer jerking when coasting
