    Easy entry/exit feature

    Each time I enter the driver side I really have to bend my head down to prevent bumping it on the upper door frame. I can lower the seat manually to prevent. What I’d like to know is there a way to program the seat position at a lower position when Easy entry/exit is enabled?

    2013 2nd Row Seat Stuck in Tumbled Position

    Hello. My 2nd row driver-side seat (60/40) is stuck in the down position. The pull cable is not releasing the latch from the hinge. I have tugged and tugged and tugged. Does anyone know if there is a release somewhere on the seat? Any help would be great. Thank you

    Looking for a new seat/ seat bottom

    So, somehow I managed to break the rail below my driver's side seat (on the door side, next to the seat lever). My dad helped me create a temporary fix (which you can see in the image), but what I really need is a new seat. I am new to this forum and relatively inexperienced in at home fixes. It...

    Passenger Heated Seat Strange Issue

    I'm having a weird issue with the passenger side heated seat. If I start the vehicle with the remote the heat turns on and stays on until I get in and am ready to drive. If I try to turn on the seat using the touchscreen button it never warms up. I've tested this with a passenger in the vehicle...

    Mysterious cut wires (1 red 1 white) under seat. What are they?

    Howdy! I have a 2000 explorer sport (which is back on the road thanks to this forum!) that I'm trying to sort out. Whenever the car is on, the dash beeps as if something is not right, although there is no seat belt or air bag light on. I looked under the seat, and found a wire that had been cut...

    2016 Platinum Drivers Seat AC / Heat doesn't work

    Any ideas on how to pursue resolution of this problem? Neither the AC or heater element works in the seat; it does however work in the seat back. Drivers side only. When I purchased the vehicle - used - the dealer said I had coverage to 60K; well now I find out it was only 10K from the point I...

    Second Row Center Seat Stuck Down

    Hi everyone! I'm new here! Just got my '02 Explorer! It has 300,000 miles on it and runs like a charm! She needs some new breaks and has her quirks,but it's love. The only problem so far is that our second row center seat is down, and the top right piece that I think unlatches the lock has...

    Not sure where to post: I'm too damn tall

    I'm 6'9". Most of my height is hips and above; I have relatively short legs. And my Explorer is kind of a thing of misery. It's a 2015 Sport. I don't fit. 1. Anyone know if there's a way to do a custom headliner? There's at least 3/4" above me that I'd much rather have back! 2. Anyone know...

    seating advice

    Hey guys, I recently had the drivers seat in my ranger collapse. It no longer stays locked in position. When I pull the lever it reclines instead of coming back up. And when I pull it up and then lean back against it it just leans back down flat making it quite difficult to see where I am...

    Anybody have pictures or clues?

    I was hoping someone could give me some clues here. 1995 X, driver seat is securely bolted but like a rocking chair. It's not the seat frame, that's fine, it appears to be the base that the seat bolts to. The front left bolt is snug, but the seat lifts at this point. I'm wondering if a weld...

    My drivers seat won't stay upright, I have a frickin' milk crate holding it up right now. The adjuster lever is stuck too, I mean really stuck, like I tried a pair pliers and it only bent the darn thing. I wasn't sure which forum to post this in because the repair threads don't seem to have a...

    One way to install a better seat in the explorer

    So there may be posts about installing aftermarket seats in our Explorers but I couldn't find one that dealt with adapting a seat from another ford to work in our cars. The reasoning for me at least was simple the left side brace on the bottom portion just snaps over time. Maybe its just me but...

    2000 Explorer Sport Drivers seat replacement

    Anyone know what years/model seats would fit a 2000 Explorer sport? My drivers seat is pretty much collapsed at this point, and was hoping to replace it. Basically I am leaning to the left all the time when driving it around. Open to any other suggestions as well, such as an upholstery place...

    Driver Seat Clicking

    I got a new to me 2013 Explorer and quite shortly after purchase the driver seat started clicking, at times a lot. I know, the online "there's a click in my car" thread. But hopefully someone has experience. It's a electric leather heated seat. The click seems like it's coming from...

    Seat Question Explorer 2003

    Howdy, The driver seat on my 2003 Explorer is worn out and ripped. (It is a manual seat.) I was thinking of getting a passenger seat from a scrap yard as a cheap replacement. It looks to me like I could just swap in the foam and the seat cover onto my existing seat (-or maybe I could just swap...

    Driver Seat Back Padding 2014 Explorer Sport

    Does anyone else have an issue with the driver seat padding? Aside from the terrible leg bolstering, I find that there is a serious lack of padding in the center of the back padding, which leads to curving my back because the shoulder area padding is so beefy. If anyone else has experience...

    Wanted to trade - Bench seat for Bucket

    Hi, I've got a 2014 Ford Explorer Sport with Black perforated leather seats. I'd like to swap out the bench seat in the 2nd row for buckets. My understanding is that the passenger side rear seat in a 60/40 bench is essentially the bucket, so it's just a matter of switching out the driver's...
