Overview

Roll the window down and disconect the negative battery post:

1. Remove the inside door panel by first removing the screws under the door handle, and at the base of the panel.

2. Next pop off the cover around the handle.

3. Next pry the door panel off with a pry tool starting at the bottom of the door and working your way up.

4. Once the panel is loose, lift it straight up to release it from the top catches of the window "sill". Don't force section by the mirror push down to release tab.

5. Remove the speaker and disconnect the wire plug connecting it.

6. Locate and disconnect the plug for the power mirror behind the speaker cavity.

7. There are three bolts behind the mirror assembly. One is located through a rectangular opening (also used as an upper retainer catch for the door panel). The other two are behind a sticky insulation pad below the rectangular hole. Once the bolts are removed, the mirror assembly can be pulled out.

8. When reattaching the wire fitting for electric mirror be sure you attach or tape the wire away from the window and test that it does not impede the window up and down movement.

9. Reattach panel in reverse order that you removed it.

One of the most popular manufacturers of convex mirrors is Securikey. They manufacture a large range of mirrors which includes models designed for the smaller budget.

The cam sensor is located on the top of the engine where older models had a distributor installed. The sensor needs a special tool to be able to remove and replace it.

where is the thermostat and how do you replace it on a 1997 ford explorer? I don't know why this is listed as an answer. Its in the front top of the engine. in the middle, underneath that plastic cover that says SOHC. You'll probably need a universal joint on your extention to remove the 3 bolts holding it in place. (10 mm) One of the big hoses from the radiator connects directly to the plastic housing that surrounds it. Can't miss it.

I'm not a mechanic / technician but I don't think so From what I have read there are ( 3 ) different engine blocks for the Ford 4.0 liter OHV / pushrod style V6 engine used in a Ford Explorer ( 1991 to 1994 models ) ( 1995 and 1996 models ) ( 1997 to 2000 models )

Starting with the 1995 models of the Ford Explorer the automatic transmissions were ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED ( so , the answer would be NO )

User Avatar

According to motorcraft . com , the automatic transmission in a 1995 Ford Explorer only is used on the 1995 and 1996 models , so no

User Avatar

I would say ( no ) In a Ford Explorer , the 2002 and newer models had a third row seat available . Earlier models were not designed to have a third row seat

That depends on what model year the 4 door Ford Explorer is : 1995 to 2001 models are / or around ( 21 U.S. gallons ) 2002 to 2010 models are , I believe ( 22.5 )

2003 Ford Explorer 4 door models do not have an automatic transmission dipstick , Ford has a way of checking from underneath the Explorer

According to my Haynes repair manual, 1996 and later models do not use a conventional speedometer cable. They use an electronic speedometer and a vehicle speed sensor (VSS)

The voltage regulator is attached to the back of the alternator with 4 torx screws for the 1991-1995 models non-integral type.

Starting in 2002 , the Ford Explorer 4 door models do not have an automatic transmission dipstick

Six, if you count the two tweeters on the inside of the side mirrors on most models.

Unfortunately you didn't mention the year , but I noticed on 2002 through 2005 Ford Explorer 4 door models that fuse # 24 - 15 amp - is listed for cigar lighter , OBD II . I'm just wondering if the fuse is bad ? and if that is the cause of your Explorer not starting ? just guessing

New Chevy truck mirrors can be purchases at Auto Zone, Advanced Auto, or Napa Auto Parts. All three are national chains and have an online store. JC Whitney also carries mirrors for various models of Chevy trucks.

That depends which model it is. On older models CV-joints were moulded into the driveshaft. To be replaced they had to be removed using a press and then warmed to be able to replace them. On these models it is often better to replace the whole driveshaft. On newer models CV-joints are attached with clips and can be replaced more easily.

I have never seen a listing for a diesel Ford Explorer SUV since they started manufacturing them in 1990 as 1991 models in the U.S.A.

In 2001 Ford made F-Series trucks, E-Series vans, Focus, Mustang, Explorer, Ranger, Escape, Expedition, Escort, Crown Victoria, Windstar and Taurus models. Some of the models had more than one version such as the F-Series, Explorer and E-Series.

the bulbs can be accessed in two ways, in older models with the top mounted light above the rear window the screws are through the lens, remove them and replace the bad bulb. On newer models it is inside on the rear window and the trim that covers the light must be removed from inside.

* To replace the belt rotate the tensioner counterclockwise on V6 models or clockwise on V8 models to relieve the tension on the belt * Remove the belt from the auxiliary components
