    06 Explorer rear window replacement questions

    I had to have my rear window replaced because the defogger lines and tabs were broken. I have then since noticed 3 things that I can't remember if they were there before. One being when looking at from the outside, the rear wiper arms looks to be missing a cover. I can see the silver washer...

    Windshield Tint

    I decided against getting the windshield done. I tried one more place that came out to my work and put a front strip on! Looks perfect. The dot matrix is completely covered. Only problem I am trying to deal with is that is not as thick as my other strips. This strip ends about 1/4 in above...

    Windshield Tint

    Thanks guys. I was looking at CXP80 which is damn near clear. My tint guy had it on his truck, and it looked great. Made it look very shiny from the outside, to the point that you almoset couldt see in. From the inside, you couldn't tell it was even on.

    Windshield tint and dots!!

    I was looking at some stuff called CXP80. It's so light you can't tell its on there. I would never tint the window if were to affect my ability to see. I really don't see how this would do that.

    Roof rack tie down knobs

    I just noticed that on my rook rack, one of the tie down knows is missing. I can tighten the one side, but not the other, which allows the roof rack to move. I am searching for a replacement, but in the event that i can't find one, what else can I use? Also how does the replacement go on...

    Windshield tint and dots!!

    Thanks! I thought about scraping them off or just having my tint guy cut the tint off of them. He said that would look better from the outside, but look worse from the inside. Do anyone have pictures of tint with the dotmatrix cut out? I am trying to imagine what it would look like. I...

    I have an 06 Eddie Bauer and my multi disc stock head unit is not working correctly. None of the lights work except for the display. I found a new OEM multi disc unit and was wondering if I could swap it out or if I would have to have a dealer do it? I am not sure if something needs to be...

    Driver Side door and interior lights

    my manual said that will illuminated entry, the dome light will turn off when the vehicle is turned on, or 25 seconds after the doors are closed. I figured having a door open would override that and keep the dome light on. If I close the door and reopen it, the lights stay on. It's pretty...

    I recently just purchased a 2006 Eddie Bauer v6 explorer. I noticed tonight that when I unlock the doors and get it, if I start the truck with my driver side door open, the interior lights go off even while the door is open. Now if any other door is open, the light stays on. If I close the...

    2006 Explorer power 3rd row seat stuck

    I just started having this same problem except mine is on my driver side. I was scared that I was going to have to replace the whole motor as opposed to just the gears. Is there a way to manually use that particular seat? Like a manual release or something? I would assume there would be but...

    thinking about getting some nokya arctic white

    I was not aware of that. How do you determine how much output you are losing? Based on what i see, my new lights are brighter, and show a large range as opposed to my stock lights. What should I be looking at to see how much of a loss i am at?

    thinking about getting some nokya arctic white

    I have used Nokya Artic White in other cars and I was not impressed with them especially for the price i paid. I believe they were $50+ back in the day. I recently bought some Eurodezigns off ebay and i couldn't be happier. The fact I got my head lights for $8.99 (shipping included) and my...

    removing fog lights

    yeah i finally figured out that you have to unplug it first. The owners manual tells you to take it out then unplug but on my truck it's impossible. Once i unplugged it, out it came. Getting it back in was a task. I had to push extremely hard to get to to go back in. I mean extremely hard...
