Anyone in need of the studs required to mount the engine cover on a 2013? I have
2 long ones (CP9Z-6A957-A) and
1 short one (CP9Z-6A957-B)
leftover from the install. I ordered a cover through www.fordpartsoem.net (cheaper shipping than others) but had to order the studs from my local dealer. I used the short one on the front passenger side bolt and 2 long ones on the passenger rear and the bolt in the back of the engine. Don't forget the M6 nut to for the center bolt.
PM me with an address (USA only) and I'll USPS them your way.
By the way, the cover definitely cleans up the engine compartment!

Btravelen As I posted elsewhere, it's disappointing that Ford to the cheap route with this omission. My 2005 Excursion came without an under hood insulator blanket and light. 50k vehicle and they didn't even finish it. Please...

My build date is 5/10/11 and I do have an engine cover.

That would be consistent with mine and PratoN's car.

SSM 21897 - 2012 FOCUS TITANIUM MODEL ENGINE COVER
THE ENGINE COVER FOR 2012 FOCUS TITANIUM MODELS HAS BEEN ELIMINATED IN PRODUCTION AS OF 5/16/11.
5/11 is firmly within the bounds of Job 1 2012 builds.

...heard back from Engineering, nothing was noted on the technical side, as a reason for it being eliminated. Looks like it was stopped as of Job 2 for the 2012s. A Decision appears to have been made in marketing to remove this feature from the vehicle.


Cheers!
Unfortunately the Ford rep had the wrong answer yet again, it was removed from production sometime in May 2011, which was firmly in Job 1 2012 build territory, not 3/5/12 or later which was the start of Job 2 production for 2012.
