SOURCE: replace speakers on Ford Explorer Sport Trac

The front and rear door panels must be removed. The interior door handle will have to be removed, and the power window switch will also have be removed. This is held in by metal clips that secure it to the door panel. Do not be afraid to use a little force to get under the switch panel, and pry it from the door panel. Once you have all accessories off of the door panel, look for what may appear to be "plugs" in the door panel. These may conceal the presence of a screw. Also, check around the interior door pull for screws or "plugs". When this is done, use a medium to large screwdriver, or a trim removal tool, and start prying the door panel away from the door. Start at the bottom, and work your way around the door, until you get about 2-3 inches from the top of the panel where it meets the window. When you are at this point front and rear, simply lift up on the door panel, and it should come off easily. Once the panel is removed, you will easily find the speakers.

SOURCE: i have a 2004 ford explorer the heater only puts

It can't. The problem you describe sounds like your blend door has broken, to access it you have to remove the dash completely to access the environmental station, you may be able to open the environmental station to replace the blend door after that, however you may have to remove the environmental station as well, which means you will have to disconnect the water lines to the heater and the a/c also. Verify your door problem by going to the center of the dash at the bottom find the cover panel and remove it, look for a small white square box, this is the stepping motor that moves the blend door, take it off and plug it into its wiring harness, rotate your temp controls and see if it moves, if so use a inspection mirror and look up at the door and see if the drive end has broken off. Hope this helps, let me know

Just purchased a 2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT. Heater setting blows cold air. I tried all the settings from low to high. The fan blows the air into the cab but the air is cold.

it is either low on coolant, has air trapped in system, or your blend door is stuck in cold mode. rotate it from hot to cold, back and forth and see if you can see or hear it moveing. Some have vacuum motors that operate door, some have electric motors. report results.

Need battery ford sport trac 2008 what size is best?

When you say physical size--they go by Group Size

Most vehicles only take one size

If you mean Cold Cranking Amps (CCA)
or other ratings--I would always get the largest

You may find 650 is the largest for your vehicle
The owners manual will tell you
Also whatever is in there now, should be an
original Motorcraft. So replace with same capacity, any brand

Cold air comes out when i turn on my heat and i hear a clicking noise. 2004 ford explorer v8

yes, common problem. Blend door actuator is stripping it's gears. Remove actuator and make sure door rotates by hand. If not remove heater box and repair door operation. If it moves OK by hand, replace the actuator. I don't have procedures for replacing yours, but follow the sound, removing whatever panels necessary to get to it. The part looks like the below pic and sits flat on the heater box with a cable coming out of it. Cost is about $35. Let me know if you have any more questions.

No heat when switching between cold and hot.Both hoses hot in engine compartment.Changed the temp control switch.

Possible problem with the vacuum actuated damper control system. Bad vacuum line or damaged vacuum actuator could cause this problem. Next, check to see that the heater core is not clogged. Do this by disconnecting the heater hoses and using a garden hose to force clean water through the heater core. You can generally just hold the garden hose to the point where the heater hose was connected and then watch to see if you get good flow and clean water out of the opposite connection. Usually you'll find that sediment build-up in the heater core is limiting flow, thereby reducing the amount of heat you get in the passenger compartment.
