    Wiper Blade Skipping

    Hi Everyone, I own a 2018 Ford Explorer Platinum 3.5L V6. So far the vehicle has been pretty good going. One issue that bugs me is my wiper blades/arms. They always skip/hop/rattle/judder across the windscreen whenever they are used. I replaced the stock wiper blades with some Bosch Beam Icon™...

    Windshield Compatibility

    I was wondering if it was possible to put a DW1474 windshield for a gen3 Explorer into a gen2 Explorer? DW1206 is the windshield for gen2, but RockAuto (and others) seem to think that DW1206 will work for gen2 and gen3 Explorers. So maybe DW1474 would work for both too? BUT! Other sites say...

    2013 Ford Explorer washer fluid nozzles not spraying?

    Hey all, I have a 2013 Ford Explorer base model. The windshield washers are no longer spraying at all. You can hear a pump/motor noise when you press the button for them to spray, but nothing is coming out of either nozzle. The reservoir is full. 1.) Does this sound like an issue with the...

    Sport Trac Glass?

    I recently came into possession of a window that I was told was for a Ford Explorer Sportrac. The only way I can identify it is by some numbers on it. It says Ford Carlite tempered as3 dot 287 m203 db09768ypy. Does anyone have any idea what it would go to?

I was going to put 12 volts to the motor to see if it was any good, nut decided I'd check with you people first. Is...
