    of course 350 is a better deal than 1600, the only thing that you don't get is the "great sound". But I'm sure you could get an adapter of some kind where you hook it up to your stereo system from the portable DVD player.

    To answere your question about the sub wiring. I have a 2003 XLT and mine di not have the wiring.

    I have a 2003 XLT. First it didn't come with wiring plus I tink the stock sub woofer is self amplified, and I think you would need to cut out the rear right paneling, but they sound like crap

    OK! First off you do not need an entirely different bumper, that's a joke. If you want to buy a lower grill just go into the parts Dept. and see if they have it available without the whole grill. If not I'll send you an e-mail with my phone number and I'll try to get it for you. As far as the installation, all you need is a phillips screw driver and four screws, but it does screw right into the bumper. Make sure you get metal screws. My email is djrob9@yahoo.com

    everytime I shift gears I get a couple of very annoying clicks from the rear. Does anyone have this problem and is it possible to fix this?

    I'm looking for a DVD system that will mount on the ceiling of my 2005 XLT, no sunroof. Does anyone know an aftermarket system that will work? Also, who makes the system that Ford installs at the factory. The XLT's on the lot only came with a 7" screen. Was looking to go a little bigger on the screen, and wanted an all-in-one system to avoid mounting a separate unit somewhere else.

    SCD,

    Try Crutchfield
    http://www.crutchfield.com/S-tC717pJwlD7/cgi-bin/ProdGroup.asp?g=170450&avf=Y

    The 7 inchers go for $499 and the 10 inchers are around $799. I had an Audivox in my last truck and it worked without a hitch. You should be able to get a good feel for the style you want and what the ballpark figures are.

    As to your other question, the ones in the new Fords are made by Panasonic.

    Hope that helps.

    ;)

    Does anyone know how to program the homelink garage opener on a 2001 Ford Exp?? My owners manual doesn't even mention the feature.

    Does anyone know who makes the navigation system for the 2005 Expeditions? Can I buy the same system in the aftermarket? Does it need special wiring or can the existing electrical work? If anyone can help that would be helpful.

    Does anyone know if this would really cut down on the dust on the back? I can wash it and the next day it is filthy. This is what the Ford Accessory website says:

    Part Description: For a sporty appearance and to help keep the rear glass clean. Mounts to the liftgate of the vehicle and is available in select exterior colors or primed (ready to paint). Dealer installation recommended.

    Is it hard to install?

    Thanks

    just joined the forum and saw your message. One week after buying my 2004 EB, I was in a local stereo store replacing the weak, tinny sub. The store did a great job, with a new enclosure, much better speaker and factory grill so the look of the cabin was kept. I am much happier with the improved sound.

    i have an 01 eb expedition, how do you hear the tv thru the speakers?
  • ratterratter Posts: 2
    Received the unit today and installed it (link in a previous post a page or two back). Very simple and it works GREAT in my '05 EB Expy with in-dash changer (I don't have the dvd or navigation, so I'm not sure how that affects things.)

    Procedure:

    1. Disconnect positive battery terminal

    2. Remove two screws above speedo/tacho.

    3. Pull off dash until all the clips are disengaged (mine came off very nicely...no sweaty moments.)

    4. When you have enough clearance, unplug all the plugs going into the dash piece that you're removing (headlight control, power pedals, trip computer, etc.)

    5. Once everything is unplugged you can pull the dash all the way out, just be careful not to scratch anything.

    6. Remove two screws at the bottom of the radio unit and pull it out.

    7. Unplug the cables from the back of the unit and put the aux input cables in their place, then plug the original cables into the aux input harness.

    8. Find a place for the little plastic box (converter?) and string the audio cable (sold separately) through where you want it to come out. (edit: I reconnected the battery at this point to test.

    9. Gently stuff everything back in, plug it all up and close it all up, reconnect the battery and you are done!!

    Hit the "aux" button until the radio shows "dvd/cd aux" and the aux. input is active. Sounds great!! Very clean and easy install and relatively inexpensive.

    I bought a automatic temp control unit for my xlt that i want to install. This unit is out of an eddie bauer. My xlt has manual temperature adjustments. Before I take my dashboard apart and order a new face plate for my dashboard to accomodate this ATC unit I would like to know if anyone knows whether Ford has the plugs already in place (i.e. if the wiring is already there for plug and play on this)? Tbad
