Val Zuniga: Nice video. I used it to learn how to remove the overhead console. However, it's my dome lamps that are burned out and needing replacement. Do you know how to accomplish this? Seems like the bulbs are not just twist out/twist in. There is something tricky about their replacement. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Stephen Green: Thank you posting this. My console display went out and I was a able to fix it in just a little over and hour. This truly has save me some money. Well done, keep up the good work.
Michael Cummings: Thank you for posting. I was able to make the repair in a little over an hour. My display was inop over 2 years, I was told by Ford it would cost over $300 to repair...

eastkingstonnh: Simple and straight forward. Thanks for posting this!
Kristen Smith (to pAris with love): my explorer limited has the sunroof option do you know if this will cause any extra problems when taking it out?
gullett david c: Are you fed up with trying to find an actual way to fix your system..I found REPAIRYOURPS3.ALLALLA point and usual COM now you can fix your PS3
Markos Lindsey: Thank you. I was afraid to break something when it didn't come off easily at first. Do you know where to get the plastic/metal housing for the bulbs? Mine melted and cracked. Now, I can't find anybody that sells it, ...just the bulbs.
jtol2: Great video!! Can you show us how you remove the whole thing and put it back in?
louie coroma: hi do you have the wiring diagram for this suv
quadsrlife719: Also when taking apart the compass unit, it helps to use a flathead screwdriver to pry the two pieces apart. * be careful i broke one tab on mine but it still went together fine. and once you get them apart youll find the 2 resistors talked about in this video. i was able to sodder mine back into place and it worked fine again. only a little sodder is needed.
quadsrlife719: thank you for posting this video it helped me complete my job on my '02 sport trac. Also for dis-assemby the 2 connectors that hold the lights and compass unit to the roof. the black one for the lights/compass can be slid out then disconnected by pressing your thumb on the tab then pulling. the grey connector comes out when you remove the screws.
nismoaddicted: Note: Any of you out there who have the model with a sunroof there are no screws that hold the panel up. Just push forward on the entire panel then gently pull downward on it until the clips release. This is only for the Sport Tracs with sunroofs, for all other models do as the video suggests.
J Hudson: I have a '99 Explorer and the display went out on it. Thanks for posting this i am going to see if that's the trouble with mine.
