    Hi Rod
    I don't know enough about how this site works to find what I wrote to you yesterday, but I do know we are limited to 1,000 characters, I originally had over 2,000, then spent a half hour shortening it. I'm John, the guy with a 2003 Explorer Eddie Bauer with a second air door actuator I can't get to without removing the dash. Well, it's very loose now, but something near the airbag is not allowing the passenger side to move more than one or two inches. Would you please send me whatever you have in your manual that covers the final stages of dash removal and airbag removal. I am hoping to be able to move everything out far enough to access and replace the actuator. Where do you live, I am in the Seattle area. I would like to find something to do for you in appreciation for all the things you have done for so many others who I have been reading about here. Thanks, John [email protected]

    Shorod Uh Oh, too long.
    I read what you said to another FTE person re Navi location of airbag parts. My problem is so-so related, you said you had info to email him. If you don't read this I hope someone else may have ideas.
    I have 2003 Explorer which has dual air door actuators. Driver side relatively easy, passnger side hard. Trying to remove dash and move it a bit in hopes of access to second actuator. To temp open airbag area will let me see what I am facing. I know that many Navi are similar to other Ford products incl my Explorer. Would you be able to email me anything that might be of help? My email is [email protected] Am close to where I get the dash released. The problem area may be attached to an arched metal bracket to the left of the seat where airbag container is located. The defroster duct obscures most of area.
    Anything you or anyone else reading this can help me with would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Good afternoon Sir, I really apologize for bothering you, I'm just in serious need of some help. I have an 03 mountaineer, which I think is pretty similar to the explorer. Its my wifes vehicle and the steering extremely hard to turn, almost no power at all to the steering. I have no idea how to replace the pump or if that's even the problem. I don't have the extra money to take it to a shop at the moment and I'm pretty mechanically inclined I just don't know this vehicle. If you could please send a diagram or anything at all I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your time......Wayne [email protected]

    All it lets me do is reply on this Visitor Messages board. Thanks so much for your help, but I don't think I need those anymore (Though I'll probably ask again in the future!) I just pulled out both front and rear pump relays, polished up the contacts and swapped them and BAM, front no back. One of the relays is shot, so I'll just get another on. I never would have thought of that though, so thanks again!

    I see you really know what you are talking about so I am going to see if I may lean on your expertise. I promise to be as brief as possible in all respect.

    I have a 2003 Explorer Eddie Bauer. The driver's door lock button (switch) WILL lock all doors but WILL NOT unlock any. I have tried multiple switches to no avail and do not believe it is associated to the switch. Please advise. Thank you in advance!
