If you can not find a Haynes or Chilton Manual for sale in your local parts store, you should check your local library, they may have the manual or repair (shop) manual that you can copy pages from for your use. This way you will have pictures.

SOURCE: replace front wheel bearings 99 ford explorer

not press fitted, standard tapered bearings, if 4X4 it is a little more involved, just dont misplace any of the smaller parts and you will be fine.

I suggest that you check out the website and register the car there. It doesn't cost anything and will give you access to an online repair manual for the car. The steps for replacing the timing chain can be found there. ( I checked ). Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

97 ford exporer timing issue

There are three engines used in a 97 model. The 4.0 single overhead cam V6 engine uses a timing chain in the front and in the rear, one for each cam. The left side is in the front and the right side is in the back. You would have to take the engine out to access the rear chain.
The 4.0 overhead valve engine and the V8 engine only have one chain in the front.

I have a Ford Explorer 1999. I have been told timing chain gards need replacing which are plastic. The motor need to come out to do front and back at $7,000 AUS.

Yes Ford Explorers are like that, The timing chain tensioners are plastic and need replaced with the chains. The engine has to be removed, please replace all chains and related parts at this time. This will save you money and downtime later. There are multiple chains on these Fords.
