    2000 Ford Explorer XLT 4 door Center Console Removal?

    The forum search feature doesn't seem to work (just gives me errors when I try to search for anything). What is the trick with removing the center console?

    Hello Explorers!

    FYI: AutoZone is having a sale of the ScanGauge II (online only) for only $119.99 through 12/31/17 (vs. $169.00 at the manufacturer's website). Seems like a good deal if the operating system is current (otherwise an additional $25.00 fee to mail in/have updated via the manufacturer.)

    New interior pieces

    The headliner in my 2000 Mountaineer got soaked when the drain for the sunroof came off. I would have cleaned it, but when I removed it it was moldy. I have small children and didn't want the risk of them getting sick. I was wondering if anyone knew where to find new headliner backing and...

    Faded interior door panels

    Hey guys, Just wondering if anybody else has experienced this or has any advice. I have an '07 limited with the "camel" interior, and the plastics on my driver & passenger doors are sun faded at the top.

    Evening, I just went through my dash lights and got them all replaced with LED's, still pretty happy with those. I'm just wondering now as they're quite a bit brighter than the stock bulbs, how many other interior bulbs can I access and upgrade? Figured I'd start with my radio and shifter...

    The light aluminum trim wasn't really doin it for me, so I'm wrapping all these pieces in a carbon fiber patterned vinyl. So far I've done the center console.
