  1. Exterior
    After 25 years I am not surprised my splash shields are broken and brittle. Anyone know where I can get replacements from? I saw them on ROCK AUTO but they are out of stock on one side.

    My 1997 Thunderbird has an ashtray in it and I have recently bought a cupholder for it so I could change it out. The cupholder is brown while the rest of the interior is black.

  4. Engine - 4.6L & 5.4L
    It's the first time I've ever replaced sparkplugs (myself) on my 95 Thunderbird LX 4.6L V8 and I got a surprise when I pulled out the first sparkplug. It's a Motorcraft AWSF 44PP. And it does look a little different than the SP-493 platinum sparkplugs that Advance Auto sold me. After doing some...

    Hey I was hoping someone would know if these tires fit on my car. I have a 15x8 rim on the rear and I want to put 275/50 Mickey Thompson tires on it? From what I see online they should fit, but I just want to make sure. Thanks!

    I am a new member and am just learning my way around the site. I have a 96 TBird with a v6 engine. My plans were to begin an engine swap next summer but I got a pleasant surprise when, as I was driving to my grand daughters lacross game, the engine heated up and I think warped a head. I was...

    I bought my 1995 Thunderbird LX about 6 months ago because I needed a car, I could afford it, and I trusted the seller. not because I particularly wanted a Thunderbird. That being said, 6 months later I have grown to not only to put up with this car but to enjoy it. I am planning on repainting...
