We have a 99 Eddie Bauer that has Homelink on the Driver's Visor. We just bought an 02 Explorer that doesn't. We pulled the visors out of both, but when we went to install, we found the screws don't match up!!! The 99 is a triangle with 3 screws, the 02 a rectangle with 2 screws. Anybody have any idea of what we can do short of taking it to the dealer?

Appreciate any help you can give.

Thanks in advance!!


About the only thing you can do is look on eBay for a homelink module, visor, or mirror and install it somehow. I can't remember 100%, but I think the homelink was on the mirror in the Gen 4 Ex? The visors are completely different. You can get a Homelink mirror, or if you want to be creative, you can install the homelink elsewhere, I put one in my headliner above the driver's door on my Ex...
