I don't have a 98 but I have a suggestion, get a new wiper. Use a Bausch
(sp?) anyway you probably can't find the right size, good news is that you
can cut the blades (actually you might be able to find right size since
Ford is using that brand anyway.)

In a message dated 98-02-13 06:49:01 EST, you write:

About all the Ranger guys, I also love to read about all the things I
will never
do to or with my Explorer but could. It's the same truck (yes, truck) but
inside stays dry and dust free. Also everyone in my family has their own
if you count the rear hatch.
As far as Explorer only topics, I can't think of any that would not apply
Rangers too. Oh yeah, the wiper deal. Wait, here's one: did you get a
pair of
gloves with the jack in the cubby hole or was that just an Eddie Bauer
I put my pair with the garden tools and replaced them with some real
gloves.What engine did you get? Maybe a SOHC?

No, I did not get a pair of gloves w/ the jack. Thats cool though. Either it
was an EB thing, or just something they did on older models. Seems there are
a few things they left out of '98 explorers, (glove box, and underhood light
etc.) However, My EB Bronco II didn't come with such gloves either, so I
don't have aqn answer. I didn't get the SOHC,almost did though. It was hard to
find an Explorer the way I wanted it w/out waiting 10-12 weeks to order or pay
more than i wanted too. I got the 5-spd Auto, 4.0 non-SOHC, CD/Tape, 934A
pckg. Electronics,and convinience pkg, but not leather Seats or the premium
(grey flare/Chrome Wheel Package.) It was hard to find all these options,
w/out getting the premium appearance pkg, which is nice but expensive. I
decided i'd rather have all the cool gadgets( keypad, keyless entry, console,
computer, fogs,& pwr. seats, etc.) If I could have gotten the same deal w/ the
SOHC I would have but I didn't
'98 Black Explorer Sport
