I ordered my 2022 Explorer ST in February and received it five days ago. Dealer had us sign a letter acknowledging the second row climate control panel would be installed within a one year timeframe, as a “recall” part at no charge.
DON’T GET TO EXCITED ! AFTER WAITING 8 MONTHS THE RECALL SOUNDS GOOD BUT CALLED DEALER ON 12/21/22 TO HAVE THE CONTROL INSTALLED AND WAS TOLD TO CALL BACK IN MARCH ANOTHER 3 MONTHS, THEY DON’T HAVE THE PART YET. GUESS WE BE ENJOYING THE HEATED SEATS SOMETIME THIS SUMMER.
I took my Explorer to the dealer yesterday and they called me. Seems there is a model H and a model J for the rear climate control. They have a bunch of model J but the model H they do not have and Ford has put a hold on that model. My vehicle requires the model H…so I guess I will have to continue waiting….
