WTB: Fuel door latch's "fuel pocket", antenna, and hood release cable
[:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] 12/2011 All purchased, thanks! [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]

For a 2001 FF SE Sedan:

The catch for the fuel door is broken and from an on-line search appears to be part of what Ford calls the "fuel pocket". Black plastic.

_Not_ the fuel door or its peg that goes into this fuel pocket's catch.

Also interested in an new OEM antenna mast and hood release cable/handle.

Thanks for checking your spare parts supply.

I can do the fuel pocket saturday at the jy and the hoodrelease cable also. Not sure on the antenna most are pretty beat up. I am going to a yard tomorrow I will check while I'm there.

Thanks -- I now have a new antenna and hood release cable on order from Ford.

The black plastic latching mechanism, that holds the fuel door closed, is what's broken on mine. But I only see the assembly in the online catalog. If $10 or so for the whole bucket, LMK! Otherwise I'll rig something up on this old one. I used to love going to salvage yards (they are in the family genes), but I moved away from my favorites, and there are few nearby here.

01 sedan I'll try Saturday. There's lots of focuses in the yards usually. And I go to at least 2 yards every Saturday. You need the surround that the filler neck bolts to and the door latches to correct? And you have a $10 budget.

I'll see what I can do.

OK I got 1 $10 plus shipping I will post pics in a few minutes.
