OneUnder the hood.... Remove the deflector pins, and remove the deflector. Remove the hood latch (16700). Remove the bolts. Remove the retaining screw, and disconnect the cable. Disconnect the two push-in clips holding cable in engine compartment.

Inside....... Remove the cowl side trim panel above the brake handle. Remove the screws, and remove the hood latch control handle and cable.

Installation

Follow the removal procedure in reverse order.

The cost to replace the fuel pump on a Ford Explorer ranges from $400 to $600 at most local repair shops. The costs will be slightly higher at a dealership.

The factory method requires removal of the dash and heater box to replace the plastic door with another plastic door. HeaterTreater has a new product to repair the 02-08 Explorer without removing the dash, and replacing the door with metal that will outlast the Explorer. Check HeaterTreater.net.

If you are not familiar with doing brake repair I would suggest purchasing a repair manual for that vehicle. Doing brake repair correctly is number one for safety reasons.

It is a difficult repair because the fuel tank must be removed unless there is an access panel above the fuel tank.

Where's the leak? Wheel cylinder, repair or replace, rusted line, replace, master cylinder, repair or replace.

I think it is a lot cheaper to go to a junkyard and see if you can find one and replace the old one.

The trade light is on. Generally, the repair in a ford far outweighs the usefulness of the remaining diminished use of said vehicle.

Take out the side indicator light assembly (which is most difficult part) and then replace the bulb.

I wouldn't repair any brake parts unless I am a professional mechanic. Brake boosters can be very difficult to replace and if they are not replaced properly, it can cause a serious accident.

My Haynes repair manual ( 1991 thru 2001 Ford Explorer ) shows on 1995 and newer that the balljoints on upper and lower control arms are not removable or serviceable . If a balljoint is damaged or worn , replace the control arm . ( my Chilton repair manual also shows the same information )

IF the problem is with control over heat and AC, most likely the problem is with the blend door operation. It is a common failure on the 02-08 Explorer. Check heatertreater.net for diagnostics, pictures, and a repair solution.
