    AC Leak

    How difficult was it removing the dash. I can't seem to find any guidance the process. While you had the dash opened up did you also replace the AC plenum box that craps out?

    AC Leak

    I have a leak in the AC... added dye, but cannot find anything under the hood...however I did notice my transmission and front driveshaft was glowing green. Is this the evaporator leaking down through? the dash?

    06 Explorer Rear Window Release Motor

    I recently chased down a problem with my glass release. It would not work via switch, remote or keypad. Fuse was good so I thought it was the motor. AfterAtaking it all apart, it ended up that the exterior switch was bad...once I disconneted the switch, the remote and keypad started working...

    2008 limited... Ignition--Power Seat issue

    i found that is an alternate part number... I think it means they are interchangeable... rock auto has SW6958 as the main part number for both v6 and v8 for 2008's. The picture on the ford parts site looks identical to the one on amazon. https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=3604572&jsn=3

    2008 limited... Ignition--Power Seat issue

    from what i understand, the two work in concert with each other to create the fault in the switch.. as the lock wears, it creates more wear on the switch. While replacing just the switch worked for me - replacing the lock as well may prolong the switch. I chose just to replace the switch due...

    2008 limited... Ignition--Power Seat issue

    HVAC Issues

    Here is the source of cold air, This round hole, next to the blend door actuator. (drivers side interior footwell) While hot air comes out of all of the other floor vents, this round hole spits out cold air (and it does so at a much higher volume than the other floor vents) Photos of the...

    I cannot seem to find reference to this issue anywhere else. For reference - I have an 08 XLT with Manual HVAC controls (no rear HVAC) Cold air blows out of a round hole(in the HVAC Case) in the drivers side floor boards area. This happens when the heat is on. First off - I replaced the...

    rear repair bearing install ?

    I am replacing my rear wheel bearings with "repair bearings". The instructions say to install with the seal on the outside but it seems there is a seal on both sides of the bearing. Due to the built in o-ring that runs along the diameter, it seems the protruding seal faces inward...

    Speedo problem

    I finally fixed my problem. The speedo circuit on the printed circuit board on the back of the instrument cluster was broken. I fixed it by taking a small wire and soldering it from where the connector from the harness touched the circuit board to the back of the pin that goes to the speedo...

    smoking from rear drivers exhaust manifold??

    on a 1996 XLT 4.0(x) OHV ...something is leaking onto the exhaust manifold causing it to smoke from under the hood on the rear driver side. i cannot tell if it is oil or antifreeze nor can i see where its leaking from. it seems like it coming right up from under the last spark plug...

    Speedo not working..

    it was either the harness splice behind the i/c panel(S247??)... or the connection between the harness and i/c panel was faulty. that can happen with the printed circuit boards on the back of the i/c. you must have jostled it when you removed the i/c

    Still fighting negative camber...

    I have not based my torsion twist on the rear sag at all.. i used the factory specs/methods of taking the difference of the measurement from the ride height =(center of lca bolt to ground) - (lowest point on control arm to ground)

    Still fighting negative camber...

    i also thought there is "room" for a little more adjustment... but there would be nothing to hold the cams in place except the bolt pressure.. I am worried if i raise the front, much more it will throw something off.. its already riding higher in the front than the rear. I have considered...
