17N03 included the drain valves as well. I had it done on my 14 even though I didn't have any issues. They installed those drain valves you reference.

Why pay for them yourself? Just call your dealer and check if your Explorer has any open recalls, then take it in and have them take care of it while you enjoy a couple cups of coffee.

Forgot to mention I live in Costa Rica and I imported the car from Florida. I own a used car dealership in Cartago, Costa Rica. The Ford dealership here won't perform any recalls issued in the US. So I'm on my own down here!

UPDATE:
I installed the drain plugs on the lift gate, absolutely no improvement.
I found a hole in the escape system, right where the main pipe coming from the engine forks out to the dual exhaust pipes. By covering the exhaust tips I noticed a LOT of fumes coming from this hole straight up towards the trunk bottom. I soldered it, will go test drive right now and post an update.
