Jdog, the URL you're using for the NHTSA TSBs is wrong. Use this:

Code:

Thats great to know

Thats great to know. Looking under a new foci. The only thig I see that would inter change w/ the earlier cars are the rear cradle & toe links. Everthing thing else is redone. The front cradle, the arms, the struts/springs, The rear trailing arms, the lower arms, sway bar & mounts. Seems like ford went thru this whole car to redo everthing. Just saying what I saw when servicing a '12 sfe model.

I'm missing a screw and a plastic push pin used to fasten the front aero shield (the plastic part under the car in front of the felt shield you remove to do an oil change). I suspect that I'll eventually strip the little red frame inserts that these screws go into as well. If anyone out there knows what I'm talking about and has part numbers please post. Otherwise, when I get the replacements I'll send pictures and part numbers. Note there are two lengths of screws used in both aero panels. The longer ones go into a metal clip and the shorter ones go into square red inserts on the frame.
