Brad B :

Hello:

Thanks for choosing Just Answer!

Brad B :

What part are you looking for?

The dealership can be expensive for most parts, there are a couple discount Ford parts stores who ship that you may need to go through if this is a dealer only part.

Customer:

The plastic outside cover (black plastic) to the back hatch handle. Hascracked from sun and use.

Customer:

Also there is a painted strip underneath the back window @ 6-8 inches tall that runs the length of the width of the back hatch that cracked.

Brad B :

I am looking up the parts to see if I can find an after market source or a cheap alternative. The plastic trim below the rear Ford emblem has been known to crack over time.

Brad B :

The trim applique for the rear glass shows to be around $120, this piece has to be painted which usually runs under $100. You may be able to buy the peice already painted.

Brad B :

They sell almost all parts for cost plus 10%

Brad B :

Would be best to call them during business hours

Brad B :

Cannot find any after market companies who sell the trim pieces.

Brad B :

The trim piece below the glass is called the 'Glass Applique'

Brad B :

For the trim around the handle the book does not show the listing, would recommend to call 'Tousley Ford' and if you have any issues let me know and I will assist as needed.

Brad B :

When calling tell them you saw there ad on 'Focus Fanatics' and would like the discounted rate.

Brad B :

I've personally ordered from this place which they have beat my employee price at the dealership a few times.
