I was at the local dealer yesterday for the door handle recall,and was walking thru the lot looking at the 2011 f150's...
some of the early 20011 year trucks did not have the rubber " splash sheild" as we are used to seeing on the older trucks..then I came across a couple of late production trucks with the rubber shields that fit over the "coil tower" that helps to keep a lot of the sand and dirt off the motor...
went to the parts dept. and he couldnt find them on the parts look up screen..and I was told that they may not be in the system as of yet.
told me to come back in a couple of weeks and they should be in the system by then,if not he would make some phone calls to get the part numbers and pricing.....
Snatched a pic with the cell phone but it didn't come out too clear,but if you have read this far you know what they are..
so as we get some numbers I'll post them...really hopethat they are available before deer season...the dirt roads seem to throw a ton of mud up on the motor without them in place
Been doing some checking on the rubber flaps and the dealer said you have to order the whole wheel liner to get that piece. So I am going to order the air deflectors behind the grill and cut a piece to fit for a lot less. About 60 bucks for both plus clips.
I went to the ford dealer today to see how I could get the splash guards. The splash guards are only on the felt lined wheel well liners and only come with the liner. I was wandering if these liners are ECO BOOST specific? I am trying to find a material that I can make a cut out to put over the whole. Any suggestions? I was thinking of a heavy roof felt.
the roof felt will fall apart after several bends/creases in them. rocks would tear it to shreds as well, even if you went with 30 wt. felt. i would think that a thin rubber mat would be needed, possibly a piece of rubber roofing or something similar. some floor mats perhaps? hope this helps.
