i would hit a junkyard or just call the stealership and see what they would charge.

is it the bolt that holds the seat from moving forward and backwards by its self while your driving? mine snapped as well, While i was driving.. what a surprise that was while doing 70 on the highway, next thing i knew i was in the backseat LoL.

i had a bolt in the garage that fit it, so i didnt need the junkyard or stealership. im sure you can get a new bolt from a hardware store as well. just take the bolt up for comparison.

Check with your local Ford dealer before buying a replacement bolt. I dont know about the 95 models but i have a 98 explorer and that seat bolt is actually a factory recall item. I had my ex at the dealer getting some work done and they replaced that same bolt for free on mine and said it was a recall. My bolt wasnt even broken either.
