SOURCE: 2004 Ford Sport Trac Romove the Extended Tailgate

The bed extenders I have experience with on Ford vehicles have two tabs that are beside the pivot pin. If this one is like them you just push the tabs toward the side and then pull up or push down (this depends on the way it was last installed) on the bed extender.

SOURCE: The lid on the center

I once took every single piece of it apart before figuring out that it was indeed 4 bolts. Doh! The two little storage compartments, and the cup holders, just pop out. Two bolts go to the dash, behind the storage bins, and two are under the cup holders. You'll need an extension to get to them. After that it won't see like it'll budge, but there is a big metal clip that it slides into, at the back, on the floor under it. It rusts, so you gotta get low on the console and pull it STRAIGHT BACK.

Remove the package tray and cup holders by grasping and pulling out by hand. There is a wiring block located directly under the stereo with a bolt holding it in place. Loosen the bolt until you can unplug the harness. There are two gold colored bolts on either side of where the wiring block was, remove these. Now if you move back until you are at the front edge of the armrest and look straight down you will see two more bolts that are exactly the size and color of the first two, remove them (you may need to grab them with needle nose pliers after they are loose to get them completely out of there) . This is the tricky part. You have to get in the back seat and pull the console straight back and slightly upward to release the two metal "fingers" that are holding the rear of the console to the floor. These fingers slide into a plate that is bolted to the floor that has two slots in it. DO NOT be shy when you are pulling the console to release these. Trust me, it takes some effort. When you get that released, just pull the whole console out through the rear seat, wiring and all. When you replace the console just reverse this procedure but make sure you don't get hung up where those four bolts go in as you are sliding the console forward and back into place. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Have a ford explorer sport trac and rear brake lights don't come on I replaced the bulbs and checked all fuses all good could it be the brake switch if the third brake in the center comes on ?

There is a short in the steering column. Put the tilt steering all the way up. You may even have to push it up. This will close the short. Open the cover and you will see the wire has become loose in the harness.

I'm having about the same issue. I've traced it to a problem behind the instrument panel/cluster. You will need to or have a mechanic pull the instrument panel and check to see what is causing the gauges to malfunction. I can tap on the instrument panel and everything comes back. There is a short of some sort.When I find out more, I'll post. Good luck

2004 sport trac engine died as driving

I also have a 2004 sport trac and I had the same thing happen to me on the highway and in town. I thought that it might have been a fuel problem but I was wrong. When it finally quit restarting, it was towed in and the problem was the crank sensor. Apparently it is really close to the belts and it is susceptible to wear.

How do I remove the stereo from my 2007 Sport Trac?

  1. Lift the console lid.
  2. Take the two screws out from the front console cover. It is the cover that goes down around the shifter.
  3. Remove the cover by pulling up from the back.
  4. Next pull the front cover off from around the radio. This cover goes all the way down to the center console.
  5. Unlug all connections.
  6. Take the 4 screws out from around the radio that hold it in.
To install just repeat the steps in reverse.

if its a whine while accelerating or decelerating than it is pinion angle.

if you can safly get both rear tires off of the ground than start it and put it in gear, try to locate the exact location "center chunk or out far in axle tubes" make sure vehicle is secure and safe befor climbing underneath.
