    93 explorer ignition switch removal and testing.

    IgnitionLock If the key is not returning to a home position you need to replace the Ignition LOCK about 15 dollars from parts house. I just did this on my 92 because it would hang.

    Let the Conversion Begin....

    The output shaft is longer on a 4WD. Glacier has a great teardown rebuild for the A4LD. While a pain it is fairly straight forward removal of parts change output shaft then reinstall.

    New Owner (actually caretaker) of an Old Explorer.

    Go for it Welcome to the forum. I used various threads to rebuild my 92 A4LD transmission. My Explorer had been sitting about 5 years also. I am replacing the Valve Body as the original one still seems to have some issues with reverse. There are other threads for later model automatics .

    92 Explorer A4LD noise after rebuild

    Clicking Solved: I was able to duplicate the clicking with the rear on jacks , shift in neutral, while rotating the drive shaft. My suspicion was that the parking pawl was not being fully retracted. I pulled the tail off the 2WD A4LD and the parking pawl and spring fell out. I reinstalled them...

    No reverse after valve body rebuilt

    Be sure you have enough transmision fluid in the system. You have to check it when it gets warmed up. Second when you redid the VB did you replace the orings on the reverse servo? It can be a cause of no or slow reverse.

    Console Clips?

    Sounds like you may have to try the dealer parts. See if they will let you look at the exploded view and part breakout. Possibly get the PN that way.
