It has a clicking sound where the glove compartment at

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2005 Expedition

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Expedition yourself? What have you tried so far?

No I'm not fixing it myself. I thought it was the starter, so I bought a new one. I also thought It was the alternator so I got that rebuilt. Then I thought it was the battery, so I got a new battery. That's all we tried so far

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Yes, about the clicking sound that's coming from my glove compartment

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
