I was afraid of that. At least I don't have to pull the engine like
everything else. Still like the van. Would have been better if it had
been designed by a "real" Ford engineer and not the summer part-time
The summer help designed the WinStar. The AeroScare was designed to
use as much Ranger materials as possible, and compared to other "mini
vans" it was pretty darn good. Too bad the body had that seam down the
one side that turned into a zipper after a few years.
It was not as tough a job as I expected. Once you take the shroud off,
the check engine light and other bulbs along the bottom can be pulled
out from the front without having to go any further. I used needlenose
pliers with rubber bands wrapped around the jaws.
This is a different year and slightly different, but the CEL bulb is in
the same place, bottom left...
I went ahead and pulled the instr cluster to change one of the odometer
bulbs. There was no bulb in the oil light socket, so I moved an unused
bulb from the 4WD socket. This is 2WD.
Will upload some photos later if someone can suggest a binary newsgroup.
They are not dead - earthlink still has access to all binary groups.
