Hi lilxmouse and jdetzel,

Swing by your dealerships so they can have a look or inquire about this the next time you have an oil change. A Ford tech will be your best bet for getting answers and resolving your concerns.

I'm guessing it's the way the floor pan was designed, probably clearance for something. I haven't been under the car in so long that I forget what it looks like under there...

It could be that some wires were moved around and all they have to do is secure them back in their proper place.
Thanks for offering up great advice and suggestions, BaconZombie and dragonpalm!

Have a great day,
