Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.
Are you planning on driving it with the bumper cover off or did you get it back on?
The main crash sensor is actually in the restraints control module mounted in the interior of the vehicle. The front sensor is an impact severity sensor that works in conjunction with the main sensor in the module. I wouldn't be concerned of the airbag deploying from the cover missing, but any foreign object impact could cause damage to the sensor or the A/C condenser, radiator etc..

I was reviewing some of my older questions and noticed I was never compensated for this question because it was not rated. If it was your intention to not rate me and use my services free of charge then I will accept that as a free service I provided and move on.
