I have a (tan) colored interior ford freestar van, the factory installed overhead (drop down) dvd player was stolen out of the van quite a long time ago now, and i was wanting to replace it. Is there any information that i can get to finding out what type of dvd player it may have been?
Every time i look for information about it online, i cannot find anything that looked similar to it. I suppose i am hoping that they did not have too many different models of dvd players used in the factory for that year.

Thank you, for any help answering this question, my kids would greatly appreciate it too...

I have a 2004 ford freestar and I need to replace 1 rim. My local dealer told me that a new steel wheel from ford is $325. I've seen rims advertised at as low as $75 but how can I be sure it will fit my vehicle? Also, do I need to have tire presssure sensors installed in the tire/rim. If not what will happen to the low pressure indicator on my dash?
