    2001 Sport - Driver Seat Repair / Replacement

    Same here. I went to a junk yard and found a drivers side seat and was planning on taking the passenger seat frame and swapping it with the drivers seat frame that I had bought. after looking at what all was involved with that I just put the passenger seat back where it was and installed the...

    2000 driver's power seat swap out

    It's springs are broken, collapsed, and covering is ripped. I just want to get it replaced and was wondering how big a deal it is. figured getting the seat rebuilt would cost me more than the Ex is worth. Local junk yard is having a 1/2 price you pull it sale so I'm thinking I can do that if it...

    Cabin air filter

    This is absolutely the way to do it! We have a 2011 XLT. Just be careful of breaking the clips that hold the filter cover on........ They break pretty easy.... But one will still hold it. And the filter was nasty dirty. First time I have changed it. and its sitting on 56,000 miles.

    Passenger door wont unlock

    Yeah, that's what it was. After about 2000 lock-unlocks with the door control and door key I finally got it to open! Got biggest piece of spring out of the latch but evidently there is still a small piece in the latch. It still hangs up occasionally and cycling the lock gets it unlocked...

    Passenger door wont unlock

    If the weather ever breaks I will try several things. Cycling the locks are just not getting it done. With the key or the door control. Haven't had a remote in years...

    2000 Explorer temperature gage

    Just had my t'stat housing and temperature sensor replaced and now my gage will not move off of zero degrees. Plenty of heat. Could I have a bad sensor? The engine is actually a 2004 I think.... replaced it a year or 2 ago. Is there a difference between a 2000 sensor and the 2004 that would...

    2000 SOHC alternator replacement

    I say that. "One whose head is so far up their rear end it could pass for a hat; used to describe a person who is stubborn, cruel, or otherwise unpleasant to be around." I did not appreciate the :bsnicker: after your reply.

    2000 SOHC alternator replacement

    Got it changed yesterday. Very easy job. The video I watched made it even easier and the needed tools listed saved trips back to the tool box.

    2000 SOHC alternator replacement

    Thanks! I found a video on you tube also, seems pretty straightforward. I will take this on tomorrow.

    2000 SOHC alternator replacement

    Just had mine tested. It failed. Now what is involved in replacing tool wise and effort wise? I could probably change it myself but if I don't have the right tools for the job I might as well pay my mechanic who does have the right tools. So could someone give me a how to or a link to a how...

    Are TSB's not covered after warranty has expired?

    I was more surprised to be told "too bad" we know it's a problem with your year X but since it is out of warranty we will fix it under your ESP but it will cost you $100.00.

    Are TSB's not covered after warranty has expired?

    12-1-8 DUAL AUTOMATIC TEMPERATURE CONTROL (DATC) - BLEND DOOR ACTUATOR INOPERATIVE Took my 2011 in for the above TSB. Dealer verified TSB applied. Then told me I would owe $100.00 deductible. (we have extended warranty) Regular warranty expired 1700 miles ago. I was under the impression if...

    My 2000 X wouldn't idle.

    When I started it yesterday. It started then immediately quit. Would only start if I gave it gas and would only run if I gave it gas. I thought throttle positioning sensor. Couldn't drive it like that so I grabbed a wrench and unhooked the battery for a couple of minutes then reconnected it...

    Groaning or creaking in frontend

    Not a brake noise. Mechanic that put the pads on does not get low grade parts and he has had the X back and put some shims in somewhere but that didn't fix it. I will take it back to him but I'm just seeking out ideas and opinions to see if I can pinpoint the problem for him. Thanks!

    Groaning or creaking in frontend

    It is rotational noise. Only does it while moving forward with brakes applied, does not do it in reverse. It is not a metallic grinding. sort of a rubber against rubber or rubber against metal.

    Groaning or creaking in frontend

    I have a 2000 explorer that has developed a groaning or creaking noise in the frontend but only when the brakes are applied and the strange part is if I put it in reverse and apply the brakes it doesn't make the noise! It is a speed noise. The slower I go the slower the noise. Any ideas? I...

    Radio lights and climate control lights flashing

    Trying to figure this out. 2000 Explorer, It's not a constant flash and it seems to only do it when idling. Not when moving. There is no pattern to them, they just flash. Any ideas? Is it trying to tell me something? Thanks!

    SiriusXM / Travel Link Renewal

    After the fit I threw last time they know better than to try it again on my debit card. I made the mistake of not looking at my account to make sure my debit was not on it and they never took it off and auto billed me full price! I went ballistic so they ended up giving me 2 years for the price...

    SiriusXM / Travel Link Renewal

    That's exactly why I went ahead and let the automatic renewal they did on me stay. I got twice the time for the same amount of money after I had a fit over it and I figured I would play hell getting it credited off of my card.

    Timing chain rattle?

    Our dealer is the one doing the oil changes so I assume it's a Motorcraft.

    Timing chain rattle?

    Thanks Crystal, I will do that. Surprised I'm the only one to have this noise though. Will get it documented and inspected.

    Timing chain rattle?

    Have a 2011 X and I have heard it rattle on startup at least 3 times just like they older X's did because of timing chain issues. Is this a problem in them? What do I need to do about it? Is there a TSB on this? It doesn't do it every time so I feel like I'll hear the old "we couldn't...

    SiriusXM / Travel Link Renewal

    That's what I did. Took the card off the account and told them to call me for renewal when it was time for it. No automatic billing.

    Explorer's Poor Headlights

    I have the distinctive cut off and I do not like it, guess I'd better get used to it though. It's just really aggravating that you're looking out the windshield and it seems like you're gonna run off a cliff or you can't see a curve coming up until you're right on top of it because of the lmited...

    Only if you consider "they all do it" a satisfactory explanation......

    Ford Sync Services

    Yes, that's right. Go to your dealer. After a year you will get a notice. Then do this: Why do I need to renew my subscription* once a year? Once a year, we will ask you to renew your complimentary subscription to SYNC Services. There is no additional charge to renew your complimentary...

    seats discolored

    No, asked if it was already done and was told it didn't need it. Never tried to sell it to us either. Which in itself is weird......

    seats discolored

    May I direct your attention to post #1. Wranglers and Levis are what we wear.

    seats discolored

    have a 2011 X and we have noticed our seats are changing color. Mostly to denim blue! From our blue jeans. Don't say buy better jeans, Wranglers and Levi's are what we wear. Anybody else notice this? Can these seats be cleaned to remove this discoloration? and how is it happening?
