Apr 20, 2006 (11:32 pm)
I have a 1995 ford explorer XLT with 170,000 miles no real major problem other than fuel pump replacement about a year ago,bought it with 62,000 miles.Having trouble with the dashboard light half is readable the other half is not .I'm thinking it's a blown bulb having check the fuse.Also, I grinding noise from the rear mainly when backing out or startup driving at low speed that the only time that I hear it.Brake were inspected all good might need a 2ND option any recommendation.

Would you happen to have a digital picture of how bad your seats cracked? I'm getting little cracks on our seat also, which is 2004 bought at end-of-year so we've only had it about 18 months as well, with 8K miles.

is a good place to make albums and post those cracking leather pics. Just log in with your Edmunds username and password and you're off and running.

Dealer replaced the solenoid in the transmission to address the 'slow to engage' problem, indicated it was part of a TSB. The dealer also rerouted some wiring that was vibrating against the firewall, which fixed the dash vibration issue.

You do not have the same problem at all. You have the most common of all window lift motor problems and the easiest to fix. The Plastic gear inside the window motor is not turning because there are 3 round plastic cylinder shaped pieces in the middle of the plastic gear that deteoriate to pieces, and let the center drive mechanism slip inside the gear, so the motor turns but the gear does'nt. You can remove the motor and replace it, (about $70 at auto parts)or take the motor apart, clean it out and replace the 3 plastic clyinder pieces, available at CarQuest Auto Parts, (only place I've seen it)called "The Last Bushing", a small kit, that cost about 10 bucks, if you are mechnically inclined.

If you have not already solved the chirping problem, it is caused by the brake pads being stuck in the caliper and just lightly rubbing on the rotor. Your old mechanic will have removed the pads, cleaned the mounts and lubricated with copperslip. I guarantee that is the problem.
