The wife was driving along the other day and suddenly "clunk", the ashtray falls out! It's one of the stupidest designs I've ever seen! For months it has refused to lock into the closed position but now it has simply fallen completely out and I cant get it back in no matter what I try!
Has anyone else had this problem? If so, should I just go and buy a new ashtray from Ford or is there a fix that I'm missing here?
how much was the ef 2 ashtray and facia? I had the same problem with my but lost my temper trying to put the ashtray back in and broke something on it.. I wouldent mind upgrading to the EF2 ashtray and facia, what difference is there between the EF2 ashtray and facia??
cant remember how much was many years ago
ef1 ashtray folds down with ashtray and lighter socket all in 1.
if you need to use the lighter you have to open the smelly ashtray
ef2 and el the ashtray is seperate from the lighter. the lighter is always accesable and the ashtray can be opened seperate.
i suppose it is personal preferance

v8capri is correct, the EF up to 12/95 had an ashtray lid that covered the cig-lighter as well. this is not available anymore (new) and must be replaced by EF2/EL type. This involves changing the whole radio/ashtray surround assy, which includes a mondeo type ashtray. this will cost you about $115.
