Ford OEM Excursion Parts Becoming Obsolete

It seems that every time I talk to my parts manager at the dealership there are becoming more and more parts that are NLA. Does anyone have a list of the parts that are becoming obsolete that we should be stocking up on now? Are there any parts that others might recommend to buy a spare of while they are available?

Every part is "becoming obsolete". Some (like instrument clusters & interior panels) are just going to be gone sooner than others (like tires & brakes). Stock up on any part you expect to need before you're ready to sell your Ex.

Hi Steve83, Yeah. You have a point. I was more or less talking about the immediate parts that are NLA. Such as the parts for repairing the rear A/C or the roof rack, as an example. The higher volume parts for the Excursion that are used on the F-250 & F-350 still seem to be available.

Is there some problem with your rear air? Or roof rack? Do you expect problems from them? If not, I don't see why it matters that the parts may not be available new. Most of the parts for my '83 Bronco have been unavailable for decades. A few were unavailable for a while, and then went back into production (like windshield trim clips, and cab step supports). If I can't find something I need new, I either buy it used (JY, eBay, CL, etc.), or build it myself, or replace it with a newer part (which is why my '83 Bronco looks a whole lot like a '93 Bronco now).

As a matter of fact, yes. Which is why I thought I'd ask if there were other Excursion specific parts that I personally haven't had fail, but others have, that I could gather now.


I agree with you, if I can't find a new part, I would find a used part, make one myself or modify a new part to fit. But if I can find a new part that is available now, that others have had to replace, and I wasn't aware of, why not buy it and potentially save my self some time and headache in the future.


One of the main things that drove me to begin this thread is that I've heard some people have disconnected their rear A/C because the parts are unavailable to repair it. Me personally, I want to keep all features/options fully functional. Even if it takes me re-engineering/manufacturing the necessary parts myself.


But if I can buy it now why not?
