remove the four screws that come from the backside of the steering wheel this should allow you to remove the center part be careful with the air bag connection* Disconnect the battery for thirty minutes to discharge the airbag capacitor before removing the airbag. Wear protective eyewear. Hold the airbag with the cover aimed away from you. Do not mess with the airbag electrical connections while it is disconnected.

I was under the impression the switch was on the steering column about 18 inches from the floor. The lock assy is under the steering wheel.

You need to buy and replace the switch. The switch is removed bu using a small flathead screwdirver, and simply prying it out of its hole on the steering wheel. Disconnect the wires, connect to the new switch and replace the switch in it's hole.

yes and no. with the amount of room, i rotated the motor, removed the battery, and partially removed the windshied wiper fluid resoviour. You must disconnect both hoses or the power steering pump will not come out. While you have the power steering pump out, you should replace the high pressure hose.

The dash panel has to be removed along with the steering wheel and steering column to access the plenum box. The plenum box then has to be removed to get to the heater core. This requires evacuating the AC system, draining the radiator, disconnecting all lines and removing the box. Replacing the heater core is simple when you get to this point. If the problem is lack of heat(not a physical leak), the problem is more likely with the blend doors on the Explorer. This is a very common fail mode. HeaterTreater has a line of products to address the issue at a low cost. Follow my user name to my Bio Page for more information. ford4me
