#1909 of 1950 04 Linclon Avaitor Shifter PIN
Jun 13, 2010 (5:33 pm)
We were cleaning the interior of our 04 Avaitor today, while cleaning the shifer the pin in the shifter head came off. It seems that there is a little pin that connect to the button to engage the release for the shifter.
So I have a meeting on Monday morning and while picking him up at the Airport I can explain that my shifer is broken, and I have it taped up and working like some type of backyard fixit man.
Anyway, my question is has anyone ever had this happen to them before, I'm wondering if it hard to fix, if I can take to console out and get to the linkage and do it myself or do I need to take it to a shop and let them do it.
By the way, I've had this car since 2006, great car never had a problem with it other than a vaccum line popping off and now this.
110,000 miles runs great and I love the car.
Can anyone provide some feedback here?

Have you fixed your Aviator's shifter yet? This happend to me 2 weeks ago. As long as all the parts are there it's a no-cost, 10 minute, do-it-yourself fix. Let me know if you still need help.

I have the same probem with my 2003 Aviator. The window is intermittent. I figure it is a loose wire.

I'm having the same problem, the c
shifter is stuck in park and the button is stuck in. my wife says that the whole shifter lifts up like a cliup is broken. Is there a easy fix for this? I'm pretty mechanically inclined so I can do it with some advise! thanks!

I am thinking of buy a 03 Aviator with 85000 miles on it. I am going to take it to a ford dealership to get it check out. Anyone have any info on what I should keep an eye out for. Also any feed back in how the Aviator runs ? I have a family of 3 and we need a larger size vehicle now.
Any input will be appreciated.

Get a loaded Explorer instead. They don't have the engine problem or some of the other problems that plagued the Aviators.
If you do want it, have a compression test done on all cylinders. That's the symptom of the head problem that costs $4500 to fix.

gas milage is horrible!!! I have a 04' I love it, it has 89,xxx and i have not had any problems other than the 12 or 13 mpg city that it gets I dont have any complaints. My sister has a loaded explorer and I think my car is much nicer than hers, maybe because its mine but I dont think the explorers really compare to the aviator.
