How to fix/replace the back shelf holes on sedan?

My back shelf ventilation (or whatever their purpose is ) holes are actually holes now:



Can you guys advice me how to fix this. I was able to remove the shelf itself pretty easy but I don't know how to replace these foam inserts.

So your kidnapped person won't die till you transport it :)

Or the dead body smell will remind you to get rid of it :)

Do not see any purpose except make the sound from woofer come through better.

Mine are all deteriorated too. There's a new cloth piece to replace the foam, I don't know the part number though.

Regardless, you still need to know how to remove the rear parcel shelf to fix it if your car is out of the bumper-to-bumper warranty.

And then what? Replace it again after next summer, it starts to dissolve when get dried by sun, no thanks. I would rather put some fine mesh instead.

I removed it already, it was not really hard.

I'm pretty sure there is a tsb for this issue, so Ford should take care of it if you are still within warranty. Otherwise there is a new part number for that piece you can order which should no longer fall apart. That new part is what they are putting into current MY.

Hi m0use,

Have you discussed this with your dealer? Let me know and I'll look into next steps.

I know that whatever it is, it deadened the hell out of the trunk. Now that one of the holes opened, my system rattles the living hell out of the back deck
