you would need to heat it up from behind to remove the dent and the rubbing compound should work as long as it hasnt penetrated your paint layer

you need a repair manual, Haynes or Chilton, there are too many places to explain here in this format, if you can not find these book at your local parts store, then try your local library, then sometimes even have the dealer shop manuals for your use, hope this helps

Push clips, or used to refer to them as christmas tree clips. Try getting a pair of side cutters under it but don't squeeze too much on handle or you'll cut the head off, but if you do, any parts store has more. Then pry up & out with side cutters. Parts stores also have a tool specifically for them, shaped like a fork with 2 prongs.

2008 ford escape. removal of rear bumper cover


Pop the Hatchback open and remove the connectors
from the top of the bumper cover.

Optional Step: Using a Floor Jack, raise both sides
of the car in the back, supporting both sides with
jack stands, and remove the rear wheels.

Using Torx Bits, remove the inner rear wheel well
lining.

Get behind the rear wheel well and loosen the bolts
holding the bumper brackets on. They're pretty
difficult to find and remove. Be Patient. Do the
same to the other side.

Remove the rear bumper cover by pulling the cover
outward from the part nearest the wheel on both
sides. Once removed, take off the 2 black mounting
brackets from the bumper cover.

Good Luck

How to change rear wheel bearing on 2003 ford explorer 4x4


Remove all the bolts on rear differential except the 2 on the sides. Loosen the 2 remaining bolts 1/2 way and pry cover loose to drain gear grease, about 3 quarts. Once the cover is off , you will see the ring gear, and 2 small gears. The axle shaft is located insde those gears, but this is the tricky part.There is a silver pin, A little larger than your thumb,{you may have to turn
the ring gear to see] that goes from the top of the carrier through to the bottom[about 6 inches long].. There is a small bolt on one end[5/16 head] that needs to be removed before the silver pin will slide out.. Be careful not to turn axle or carrier once the pin is removed or you will turn gears out of the housing.As long as the pin is in you will be OK.Once the pin is
all the way out, push axle in to the center and "C" keeper will fall off. then carefully slide axle out. The "C" keeper holds the axle out and the silver pin keeps the axle in position. Push the axle ,after repair, all the way in and reinstall the "C" keeper,then just push axle back to reinstall silver pin

I have a 2000 ford explore and don't know how to get the spare tire out/ down.Where is the release located?


There are 2 rods located under the carpet behind the passenger rear seat and a jack crank handle located inside the hatch on the drivers side near the tailgate. Open the rear door. At the top of the bumper (normally covered by the rear door) is a small hole. Insert the assembly into the hole until you have it engaged with the slot inside. Crank counter clockwise until your spare is on the ground. Once on the ground, remove the spare tire retainer, pulll the tire out and that should be it.

  • Remove the retainer from the center of the wheel by turning it sideways and pushing it through the center of the tire.

I have a 2006 Ford Explorer and 2 of my park aid assist sensor are bad. They are in the rear bumper. How would i replace the sensors? Is it really necessary to remove the bumper?


You only need to remove the bumper cover. Remove both tail lamp assemblies. Under the tail lamps you will a 10mm and a 8mm bolt, remove these. Look into each rear wheel well rearward and you will find a T20 torx screw on both sides, remove these. On the top of the rear bumper, between the bumper and the bottom of the liftgate opening you will find 6 to 8 plastic rivets that can be removed by pulling the center pins out, remove these. At this point you should be able to lift upward and rearward and release the bumper cover. Once the cover is free you must disconnect the electrical connector to the sensor wiring harness. With the bumper cover on the ground or a bench, you will see 4 9/16" nuts that hold the styrofoam bumper cushion to the bumper cover, remove these. Now you should be at the point where the backup sensors are accessable. When you install the new sensors be sure your electrical connectors click when they connect. these connectors go on hard and if they don't click you will be doing this job again. Reassemble in reverse order.
Hope this helps
