I had a similar issue with my '96 Ranger: the rubber pad on the cruise 
control buttons dissolved--yep, dissolved, a known problem--and the 
'official' replacement part didn't fit, but another year/model (mostly 
the same platform as the contemporary Explorer) did. Since your 150 is a 
relatively early '94 it's conceivable they used-up any '93 parts still 
on the shelf (British cars are famous/notorious for this sort of thing).
