SOURCE: Rear seat removal 2000 merc Villager

We have a 1997 Mercury Villager. I don't know how different it is from ours. We cannot remove the back seat. We can remove the middle seat and slide the back seat forward. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Wiper Fluid Light On When Reservoir is Full

The sensor is normally a float attached to the fill cap or at least on top of the fluid reservoir and operates a primitive switch; these aren't real reliable (like so many small gadgets in our cars). The switches often have a 'quick-disconnect' type male and female tab-type plug. Most of these sensors indicate low fluid levels by closing the switch so if you want to disable it, you would have to pull the plug to disable the light. The switch/float assembly is probably not costly to replace if you want the indicator to return to service.

SOURCE: where is a knock sensor for 2000 mercury villager

It is under the lower intake manifold in the valley of the engine.You must remove the cross over coolant tube to gain access to the knock sensor. It bolts into the cylinder head. Good luck

blessdwth3, Your knock sensor is a round unit that is about an inch and a half in diameter and is usually located on the back side of the engine block, usually near the middle. Just unscrew it to replace it and put wire back on. The speed sensor is usually located on the transmission on the long side extending to the right side of the vehicle. Take out the hold down and pull straight out, a little twisting motion will help with this. Put in new sensor and hold down bolt and replace wire. If you have a code reader then use this to clear the codes. If not, remove the negative battery wire (black wire) for about a minute and this will erase the codes.
