Help Me Straighten Somethign Out........
#1287761 - 07/28/06 12:35 AM

The trim piece on teh inside of the truck lid. It didn't come on my SVT, but after finding out about it, I order one from Bill Jenkins and it looks so much better. The door holes, however bother me, so I have been looking for a set for some time. Not availabel from OE any longer, I have gone to junkyard hunting.

Now my dilemma. Obviously with the different deck lids between 95-97 and 98-00 I now know there are 2 different pieces. I was at a junk yard today and was thinking I needed to be looking at pre-98 decklids for these pieces. So I grab 1 (all that was there) and bring it home only to realize it is completely different.

So now I have a pre 98 door and a 2000 with no doors that now really bother me.

What do I need to look for to get these doors? Does anybody have a set they want to get rid of?

I also have a pre 98 piece I can't use, so first to PM me and is willing to pay shipping can have it.

+1

Both my 98 trunks had it, and my 2000 does not. Neither of my 98's ever came with the doors though. Always wondered why.

Ok, so I sounded like I was on crack when I made that post. At least someone understood me!

Ok, I did some searching today and came up with this OE drawing.


The piece ELky pictured is the same I currently have, which is definately from the Mystique. The doors are not listed separatley, which means the part was supersceded to a part without doors, then dropped as it is no longer available from Ford.

The part pictured for the Contour is what I got at the junkyard yesterday, which is also no longer available. Surely somebody is missing 1 of these from them car and needs 1? Like I said, I am just going to throw it away, it was free for me and if anybody wants it, they can have it for the price of shipping. Here it is: A little scuffed, but the door still works.





So today, I stoped by a junkyard that is a few minutes from my house and tada, a Mystique that was damaged for unknown reasons as it wasn't wrecked. Trunk popped open via the lever and there was an unmolested trim piece! I know the guy that works there so it was only $10 after I pulled it out! I didn't get the clips as they stayed in the car, but those are still available so I'll get some new ones next week.



And the elusive plasti-glued doors:


So, my goal has been reached. Don't know why this stupid little thing bothered me so much, especially after yesteday's near find I was determined to get one with doors!
