Transfer case problems normal?
By Wingding on


1997 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV


As a rule I have enjoyed owmning my Explorer. The only real complaints I
have are the rear bumper design, the fact that the back seems to be a dirt
magnet, and the cargo inside slides all over the place even when I drive slow
and careful. The rear bumper is attractive, however, it holds a "ton" of dirt
just from ordinary driving, no dirt roads and it is difficult to clean out. I am
encountering transfer case problems with it that are very expensive to repair
and no one seems to want ot include them on the extended warranty plans.
If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate them.

Best Features

The comfort.

Worst Features

Some way to keep the back cleaner, especially the bumper.
