    This is my first day on the FTE site, and there appear to be some hurdles to clear prior to becoming a full-fledged member (?). At any rate, I am the proud owner of a 2003 Aviator. At approx. 90000 miles currently, I've had two significant problems with her...Timing Chain Guide (damned plastic parts!) failure, and rear wheel bearings went bad (costly, but nothing like the Chain problem). Hopefully, she'll be good for a while now, LOL.
    At any rate, I'm wondering if there are any modest improvements to be made in Aviator performance?...Air Intake, or maybe Exhaust system alterations? And what about these Performance Chips...are they worth it??
    I love the truck and plan on keeping her forever, would like to pamper her a little in her 'Middle-Age'.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    I have enjoyed reading your post for years (since 2002). You have helped so many, including me - starting with my 1997 Mountaineer.
    I am writing as I have recently relocated to the QC area (yes, I am on the dark side of the Mississippi (Moline). Nevertheless, I just traded my 02 EB Explorer for the same version in an 06 model - with 118,000 fewer miles.
    Looking forward to staying in touch and up to date on the Forums.

    Hello, and thank you for your offer. I need the power door schematics for the 1999 Explorer sport and the 1995 explorer sport, both two door models. My email address is convairxb36@sbcglobal.net I should be able to work this out with that information.
    Thank you again, Dave Wood

    Hey Rod. Any way I can get a 2004 explorer wiring diagram from you? I have that phantom power window problem. Replaced $100 in switches with no improvement...

    It seems like you are the go to guy. I am searching for the parking brake and reverse gear wires to tap into. I have a 2010 ford explorer XLT. I am adding a backup camera and a Parrot Asteroid smart. Any help would be greatly appreciated as the truck is down.

    Happy New year! bmwboyee@gmail.com

    Rod, I don't think I can send a private message yet, but if I can get a driver's seat wiring diagram for a 96 Ford Explorer 4wd, I would greatly appreciate it. You can send it to: djloveboat@gmail.com
    Thank you so much!

    Rod, I saw that you have a pdf of the drivers door lock assembly for the 2001 sport trac that you said that you could email to someone. Is this the same for the 98 explorer? Is it an electrical or mechanical drawing? I think I might have a mechanical problem, but any help I can get is good help. Thanks -Dan danimal1481@yahoo.com
