Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello: Thanks for choosing Just Answer!
What part are you looking for? The dealership can be expensive for most parts, there are a couple discount Ford parts stores who ship that you may need to go through if this is a dealer only part.
The plastic outside cover (black plastic) to the back hatch handle. Hascracked from sun and use.
Also there is a painted strip underneath the back window @ 6-8 inches tall that runs the length of the width of the back hatch that cracked.
I am looking up the parts to see if I can find an after market source or a cheap alternative. The plastic trim below the rear Ford emblem has been known to crack over time.
The trim applique for the rear glass shows to be around $120, this piece has to be painted which usually runs under $100. You may be able to buy the peice already painted.
This is one of the best places to order discount parts from; http://www.tousleyfordparts.com/partlocator/index.cfm?action=getJointLocator&siteid=214771&chapter=§ionids=0,4486&groupid=2581&subgroupid=3533&make=10&model=Explorer&year=2004&catalogid=2&displayCatalogid=0
They sell almost all parts for cost plus 10%
Would be best to call them during business hours
Cannot find any after market companies who sell the trim pieces.
The trim piece below the glass is called the 'Glass Applique'
For the trim around the handle the book does not show the listing, would recommend to call 'Tousley Ford' and if you have any issues let me know and I will assist as needed.
When calling tell them you saw there ad on 'Focus Fanatics' and would like the discounted rate.
I've personally ordered from this place which they have beat my employee price at the dealership a few times.
