Re: need help with 2 things
for the plastic (aplique) piece, this is a known issue. Its cracked on my 03 aviator and after it happened to me i've been noticing on a bunch of aviators, explorers, and mountaineers.
There is a TSB out there about it.
I haven't been able to find the piece by itself other than from ford themselves and they wanted $170 + $35 for the emblem + painting it. Also its the same piece, hasn't been changed to fix the cracking issue, so i'm willing to live with the crack rather than paying $200-$300 for something that can happen again.
