Tailgate bedliner screws...Now what?

I took off my bedliner from the tailgate, and put the screws back in. It seems they are too long now. Are shorter ones available from Ford? I was going to get it sprayed tomorrow with Line-X.

Or just go to Home Depot/Lowes and find what you need. That would be much faster and I'd bet cheaper too.

When they put my bedliner in they used the factory screws, they were plenty long enough. Don't know why someone would change the screws unless the tailgate liner is alot thicker than the ones I've seen.

If your going to get it sprayed the holes will get filled in so you should not have any problems.

They make two different screws for the tailgate, one with a shoulder on it
for the liner and one without the shoulder to use without the liner.
I changed mine when I took the liner off also. If I still have the Ford part
number for them I'll post it here.

A factory Ford tailgate liner needs the longer screws....I know...I did mine myself. Unless you like having 1 or 2 out of 6 threads catching...you need the longer screws.

BTW...you have to put the old screws back in otherwise the cover on the tailgate will fall off

I just caught that I though he had holes in the gate where he screwed the liner in.

OK if they are long you can buy new ones or just cut them down, thread a nut on and hacksaw them or grind them back the nut off and your set.

Sorry guys, I should have stated I took OFF the dealer installed drop in liner. I think JHEMR has it correct, I need new, shorter screws.

A word of caution...When you install new screws don't use a power tool.Use a drop or two of blue loctite and don't tighten very tight.I have seen what dealers do to the screw holes and it isn't pretty.

Found the Ford part number for the bolts "N806149 S301"
The liner on the tailgate is held on with 8 longer bolts that have
a short unthreaded section (shoulder) up by the head, these also
help hold on the access cover on the inside of the tailgate, there are 10
screws total that hold this cover on. The part number above will match
the two that are under the liner. This is what I did to mine and yes I
went to Ford to get the screws, they were about 80 each, but they
all match and you can't tell there was ever a liner on the tailgate.
Hope this helps.... Joe

Thanks a ton Joe. Got it sprayed and I haven't been around to drive to a dealer yet but will do so this week.
