Replacing struts on 2004 Ford Explorer

My mechanic could not figure out how to replace the rear struts on my Explorer. Is this something that must be done at the dealership?

Back springs are broke

Rear is spring on strut design, not a difficult job, purchase a set of ready install assemblies from ebay, and install yourself, requires removal of rear seat to access the upper mounting nuts. This is cheapest and easiest method, replacing just springs is more involved and dangerous if you aren't sure of what you are doing

Rear end sways all over on good roads.

If the steering wheel is "crooked" after the mechanic worked on your vehicle, you need to find another mechanic to diagnose the problem.

Replacing rear coil springs

You have to remove the struts from the car. Place the struts on a compression tower to relief pressure from spring. Once spring is compressed take of the top bolt on the strut which holds on the strut mount. After strut mount nut is off, loosen the springs tension and replace it with the new coil spring you are planning one using. Tighten the spring with mount back on and tighten bolt. then reinstall on car.

How do i change rear struts on 2004 camary?

Hello, and welcome to FixYa. I'll be glad to help you out.

When you had the struts replaced, one of two things happened.

one - the rear strut retention bolts were not tightened up properly at the tops of the struts

two- the top supports on the struts were not replaced. Whenever we change the struts, we always replace the top supports. More than likely, this is your problem. The rear strut supports are notorious for wearing out, and, when they do, they make loud banging noises.

2004 Camry rear support part numbers:

Left: 48750-33062
Right: 48760-33062

I would suggest replacing the top supports to cure your problem.

Thank for choosing FixYa for advice!

Ridiculous the heat doesnt work

First, check to make sure the coolant level is full...if not, it will bypass the heater core. Next, try replacing the thermostat and radiator cap. These are both inexpensive, and it's a good idea to replace them periodically. Finally, you may need to replace your heater core. Unless you are mechanically inclined, this is something best left to a mechanic. The difficulty of changing this ranges from vehicle to vehicle.

How do I replace the hub assy on a 2004 ford explorer AWD?

I was referring to the Haynes Repair Manual #36025, Ford Explorer 2002-2006, Chapter 10, "Hub and bearing assembly (rear) replacement": Due to the special tools and expertise required to press the hub and bearing from the rear knuckle, this job should be left to a professional mechanic. However, the knuckle may be removed and taken to an automotive machine shop or other qualified repair facility equipped with the necessary tools.

Replacement shocks and struts

Check out autopartswarehouse they list front and rear KYB product. Not much out there, probably because of the year of the Murano, not too many people replacing shocks/struts yet, there will be much more available in a couple of years. I had to search for some time to find something.
