How do you remove and replace the tail light assembly on a 2000 Mercury Mountaineer?

Remove the interior panel for the appropriate side (not all the way, but enough to see the nuts holding it in). There are 2,3, maybe 4 nuts holding it in. Remove them and pull gently on the light from the outside. If it doesn't come out, common sense says there is one or more nuts on there still. Once out, remove the lights by twisting 90 degrees and pulling back. Be sure to take note of which one came out of where. Repeat in reverse order to reassemble!

How do you find the factory five-digit number for the keyless entry on a Mercury Sable?

Not always in the same place apparantly, here are some suggestions Trunkits usaully on a sticker in the trunk Glove boxOn a 1992 Sable it's on a small white sticker on the left side on the opened glove compartment

On year 2000 up mercury sables the keypad on the driver's door unlocks the driver door, passenger doors then the trunk. To locate the factory keypad code in 2000 up mercury sables it is located on the side of the fuse box by the driver's side foot pedals. My sticker was pasted almost on the back side of the fuse box, I had to unscrew my box from the floor to read the code. All in all, just get ready to get upside down and intimate with your driver's side floor.

Not all Merc's have this sticker. My 2002 does not have the sticker on the fuse box. If you call up the dealer with your VIN number, they should be able to get you the number. It helps if it the dealer that you bought it from. My dealer looked it up for me.

Here's the deal. The label is on the GEM module which is bolted behind the fuse box. Get on the floor with a flashlight and a mirror. There is a label on the GEM module which is at the edge of one of the corners. It will have the 5 digit number on it. You can also pull the fuse box and look at the number that way. It's not difficult to do. Disconnect the battery first.

Here's a couple more places to look on the Gen2 series (1992-1995), on one of the "owner care" cards in the manual folder (if it's still there), on a small, white decal on the underside of the trunk lid or mounting brackets, and a decal stuck to the inertia switch (behind the carpeting, driver's side in the trunk)

How do you replace the EGR valve on a 1998 Mercury Mountaineer AWD vehicle?

I believe it is at the top rear of the engine (between engine and firewall, just left of center (passenger side). You have to remove (2) bolts (bolted in from the back, toward the front of the vehicle), next, remove the EGR tube nut that goes to the bottom of the valve. Typically, the valve does not go bad. You can test the EGR valve by removing the vacuum connector from the top of the valve, and add vacuum to the top of the valve. If the valve works, the engine will shudder when vacuum is applied. Typically EGR problems on these are caused by the DPFE senser that is located next (toward driver's side)to the EGR valve. It also bolts in from the back with two small bolts, and has (2) vacuum hoses connected to the bottm of the switch.

Where is the EGR valve on a '97 Mountaineer and what are the steps to remove it for cleaning and inspection?

The EGR on the 97 merc is on the back left side on the intake near the firewall. I have had sucess with cleaning out the throttle body and pathway to the erg for clearing the MIL or check engine light for odb codes related to excessive and inexcessive flow rates in the egr. Open the hood and locate the air box for the air filter. Connected to this is a large semi flex tube with a clamp at each end. One at the air box and one at the throttle body. Just remove the clamps and push open the butterfly valve and spray out the insides with carb cleaner. Note, if you have low miles, under 100k, I would not recommend this, because they seal them with a coating and you may cause further problems. However, if you are like me you will have over 100k. I have 127k on mine. Don't start the vehicle right after this. Spray it out several times and and let if dry out. You can prop a screwdriver in the spring just to the right of the TB valve. It is tight to try to remove the egr in your driveway. One of the two screws is ok to remove and the other is very difficult with standard tools. If you wish to see what the egr looks like check out autozone or parts America web sites and search for egr and I know at least one of them has a picture of one.

What might the problem be if a 1999 Mercury Mountaineer is starting to stall when starting?

Clean the inside of the throtle body where the butterfly is. Also clean the idle speed control which is on the side of the throtle body. Good luck. 11/11/04 - just happened to me. My mechanic is going to; 1) replace EGR valve He also found a leak (with a special leak detecting gadget) at the intake manifold, so that gasket is being replaced. Check your pcv valve, this on thing can cause a lot of troubleshooting. Only 3-5 dollars to buy.

Where is the factory keypad entry code located in a Taurus - Sable?

See Taurus Car Club "Related Links" below for photos and additional detailed informationI have a 2001 Sable, I don't think it should be that much of a difference.

I finally found mine today, after 9 months of looking for a dumb computer module. First, you have to locate the fuse box. It should be on the left hand side of the brake pedal. Then, remove the cover. There should be two bolts, one on each side of the box, you can remove them with pliers. Next pull the fuse box out and on the back of the box it should be a white sticker with a five digit code on it!

P.S. If you have the owner card it should be on there also a 5 digit code.

See "Related Questions" below for more

All ford keypad entry codes are located on the firewall on the driver's side.. Above the brake pedal.. it's a big sticker with a 5 digit code on it.

I have a 2001 ford explorer sport and my code was found where the tire jack is in the side compartment,"in the back on the drivers side".you will need a flashlight to see it. It is on the inside looking toward the front of vehicle.

Its on top of the computer module located on the firewall under the hood

1992-95 SHOThe code for my '95 SHO is missing (but normally printed on a sticker inside the trunk) on my '92 SHO the sticker with the code is on the drivers side trunk lid.

On my 97 Taurus LX, there's an off-white plastic box under the driver side dash, above the gas pedal. You have to look up there with a flashlight, and push the box to one side. There you'll see a white sticker with the factory entry code (five digits).

--SG, Grand Rapids, MI

In your owners manual booklet, there is a small plastic card at the bottom left of the booklet, on the card is your keypad code, once you get that refer to your owners manual to add an additional code.

The owner' manual list two possible locations of the 5-digit factory code. One, the code is on a card that came with the owner's manual packet. The second should be taped to the computer module.

Each car has it's own code. I just purchased an 05 and it says it is on the owners card or on the computer control module. Not sure if it is a sticker on the module or has to be read by a service tech. Hope this helps. I know the older Lincolns had them on a sticker somewhere on the vehicle.

2004 mercury sable keypad code

I'm not sure if you are looking for this so you can find the code for the keypad but if you are the code for the keypad is on the side of the black fuse box below the dash on the drivers side. It is not on a sticker it is just printed on the side of the box. I have also heard it could be on the white box behind the black fuse box. It took me forever to find this

2003_Door_Code_Location...">2003 Door Code Location...

I actually found the door code behind the fuse box area (Driver Side) on my brother's 2000 Ford Expedition EB. There is a big white sticker with 5 numbers starting with number 1####. Hope this helps...

The correct code for push button door lock buttons on drivers door are under the trunk lid should be a five digit number for this

A LITTLE WHITE STICKER LOCATED IN THE TRUNK USUALLY ON THE HINGE

I'm not sure for the 1997 but,for my 1996 Taurus the key code is on a white sticker located on the computer under the dashboard.

2003

the code is located on a module on the fuse box to the left of the brake pedal. first you have to unscrew to bolts on the bottom of the fuse panel, pop off the plastic covering of the fuse box once you removed screws and bolt on each side pull it forward as far as you can and reach up under there is a small white module maybe 3x4 inches there is a label stuck to the back of this white module with the code right there 5 digits. I tried to read mine with a small mirror its pretty tricky to get to and less you are very limber. so i just stuck my hand up there and it peeled right off i did it and i am a 50 year old female

ou should check under the trunk lid i have a 92 grand marquis and it is in the trunk lid but it could be on the trunk hinge arms also

I would say with proof of ownership your local Mercury Dealer should be able to help. Because they would know how to Reset it. Good Luck and Remember.

It should be on a white sticker on the Keyless Entry control unit. Not sure about 2001, but on my older Taurus it is found in the back of the trunk. You might also check under the dash. You might need to use a mirror.

- 1995its in the owners manual or else you can open the trunk and it should be printed on the strut

How do you change a wheel bearing?

I've had the opportunity to do this self-repair job. It ain't too fun. It will take you all day for 4 wheels if you have AWD and if it's all wheel drive, you have to buy the entire hub assembly because the wheel bearings are sealed and not replaceable. It's about a three hour job for each front wheel and an hour or so on the back for the average do it yourself-er like me. I take breaks but an obsessive-compulsive can probably do all wheels in four hours if you already have the parts. You can get everything you need Autozone. The front assemblies are the most expensive at about $170 each. The dealer will charge you $350 each for the fronts and that doesn't include installation.

Step by step:

Remove the tire

Remove the entire brake caliper and use string/wire to hang it out of the way. DO NOT LET THE BRAKE HOSE SUSPEND THE CALIPER! DO NOT LET THE CALIPER HANG FROM THE BRAKE HOSE! Use something to hold it out of the way other than the brake hose.

Remove the large locking nut on the center of the hub. Do not re-use it. Get a new one for reassembly. That sucker is on there big-time tight so you will need an impact wrench. You will not be able to remove it unless you have a 6 foot cheater bar or an impact wrench and I've never seen a 6 foot cheater bar. If you don't have an impact wrench you will not succeed at this project. Go to Lowe's and pick up an electric one for 40 bucks. They're awesome for removing lawnmower blades too! Do this before you take things apart so you can drive your car. :)

After removing the hub lock nut, remove 3 bolts behind the hub assembly that hold the assembly to the strut.

Remove the wiring for the antilock. It runs up the wheel well and into the engine compartment.

After everything is unbolted/unwired, remove the hub assembly by pulling it. You may need a may need a rubber hammer or some leverage to get it to move. Be careful not to damage the splines on the spindle once the hub is removed.

Do everthing in reverse to put it back on.

Get a Chilton's repair guide to help. They've got good pictures of the parts. You can get these at Autozone as well. Autozone is nationwide so I'm sure there's one near you somewhere. If not, any other parts store should have the same stuff. You must ensure you torque the bolts to the correct lbs and a repair guide will give you these numbers for your year model.

Once you're done, have a beer and remember, you have another front wheel to go and two on the back. The back is easier. :)

I Have removed many axle nuts and it can be done with a breaker bar. Mine is about 2 feet long and has a 1/2 inch drive. DO NOT USE AN IMPACT WRENCH TO INSTALL ANY FASTENERS. FIND THE TORQUE SPECS AND USE THE PROPER TOOL (TORQUE WRENCH) AND SETTING!

Transmission Fluid
Mercury Mountaineer

Where do you add transmission fluid in a 1999 Mercury Mountaineer?

If you have a 5R55W 5 speed automatic, there is no dipstick. It is a "sealed" transmission and shouldn't leak...unless you have a leaking diaphram, in which case you would blow smoke out your tail pipe, bla bla bla. Ford says you should take it in...or look in your owners manual. You should have a 5R55E though and that would most likely be toward the back just to the right or left of the engine.

How many miles can you expect to get out of a 2000 Mercury Mountaineer?

Being a typical Ford product, you should get at least 100,000 miles out of this vehicle before you start having to replace parts, or do anything other than routine maintenance.

Ford, checy, or dodge. Alll newer vehicles run a long time without problems. If you do your 100000 mile tune up, you should havwe any troubles with it, that is if it is treated well and maintance is well taken care of. 175,000 will be when i would start thinking about its end.

Mercury Villager

Where is the pcv valve on a Mercury Villager and how do you get it out?

PCV Valve!

The PCV Valve is located right beside the EGR valve (located in behind but attached to the intake manifold) and has a thick black tube connected to it, when that tube is removed, it will expose the PCV valve from there, you will have to unscrew it and replace it, then re connect the hose and start it up! Trust me it sounds a lot easier than it really is! It takes almost 90 mins to reinstall! I am not sure it will work on all Villagers!



On a 2000 Villager, the PCV valve is pressed into a rubber grommet on a 90 degree tube extension from the rear valve cover, which is then connected by a black hose to a nipple extension on the upper rear intake manifold. The way to remove it is to unbolt the bracket attached to the intake manifold holding the accelerator cable, using 'right angled' pliers to open, then push the hose clamp back from the end of the hose attached to the intake manifold, then using the angled end of a brake shoe adjusting tool to push off the hose from the nipple on the rear upper intake manifold, being careful not to break off this nipple (the upper intake manifold is molded plastic and the nipple is part of the manifold). Once this end of the hose is loose, then the PCV valve with the hose attached can be pulled out of the grommet from the valve cover end.

It helps to place a little silicone grease onto the manifold end of the hose and the base of the PCV valve that slides into the grommet for ease of future removal. Replace the hose clamp, replace the accelerator cable bracket, and you're ready to go. Make sure you do this with the engine cold, because there isn't a lot of room in the back of the engine. It took about 10-15 minutes to do it this way.
