SOURCE: changing rearend oil 04Ford Explorer

ok, i did some research and there was a recall for this vehicle about putting the wrong fluid causing the gears to fail, if you replaced the fluids with this recall you are fine and just take the plug out and drain. check for the required fluid specs. i can help you with that later on.
if you didn't replaced the fluid , then you most likely have a worn set of gears and will recommend to take it to them to fix their initial failure " mistake "

It does not have a drain plug. You have to loosen the bolts that hold the drain pan and let the fluid drain out that way.

I need to find the oil drain plug on a 92 ford explorer eddie bauer.

Hello, it on the side or bottom of the oil pan. The oil pan is the bottom end of the engine. This is were the oil is stored and were the oil pick up the oil for lubrication of the engine. It is a 5/8" plug with a copper or fiber washer. If you are changing the oil make sure that drain plug has it copper or fiber was on it. If not, the plug will leak little droplets. GB...stewbison
