A lot of folks on this forum have been writing about stuff that's missing on their new BS. Here's my 2 cents; or 14,200 cents to be more precise. The way I understand it... There were shortages of many auto parts in 2021. Among these were the parts listed in the table below. Ford deemed these parts, weren't important enough to halt production, so they shipped to Customers without them and never told anyone. They were hoping no one would notice. If Ford were Customer focused, they would have advised Customers and have Dealers issue a factory "We Owe". Instead, they took a different approach...


Note: The links are to oemfordpartscheap.com; For me, the Dealership is local so I can Pick-Up and not pay shipping charges. Your local Dealer can order these same parts for you; You should not have to pay shipping.

There's a lot of work when an auto manufacturer does something like this. There was an ECO and FMEA's had to be done.; Drawings and procedures needed to be changed. To complicate things for Ford, when they removed the Engine Cover, they had to design a new Standoff for one of the hoses. Engineering a new part, even a simple piece of plastic is a big-expensive-deal. Not to mention the cost of inserting that new part into Ford's supply chain. Finally, all the changes went thru a review and approval process by many departments at Ford, including the bean counters and the legal department. Only after all that, a change to the BOM was flowed down to Logistics and Production so they could ship without these parts. When these parts became available again... Ford realized they could save $142 per car if they continue to leave these parts off. Ford sold 29,000 BS in the first three months of 2022. According to the math: $142 X 29,000 = $4,118,000. Plus they save the significant Engineering costs of reverting back the BOM to include these parts again.

Even more frustrating is, if you ask a Salesperson about any of this, many will claim ignorance. Either they are lying or Ford's communication channels to the Dealers sux.

Most of my new cars have been Fords... Used to consider myself a "Ford Guy". Unfortunately, this experience makes me ashamed of saying that. This was done by Ford on purpose. It is another indication of the declining culture of quality at Ford, and the "Customer is Job One" philosophy.

I see your sentiment, but Ford doesn't pay retail prices for parts so I doubt that it saved them anywhere near $4 mil.

If we're stirring the pot here, OP's list is incomplete: I still need the folding headrests on the rear seats, temp displays on the climate control dials, and of course the little green light on the start/stop button to show me when the car is running. Oh, and the owners manual didn't come with the nice Bronco-branded case like in MY21.

Wait, other missing items! You got a Bronco branded case on your 21 and a little green light. I got a clear plastic one on my mine and no green light(((. I Gotta add those to my Christmas list to Santa.

Okay, Gotta respond to this one. First off, they are stickers, peel off the backing and stick on the top of your existing letters. My 3 year old is a expert at sticking stickers, maybe she should do a YouTube on the process.

So with that smart ass reply out of the way here is what I did. I purchased my stickers, or for a more professional term, overlays on Etsy. Very good quality and cut. I cleaned the letters with alcohol before applying and let it dry for a few minutes. I peeled the stickers, oops overlays and positioned them perfectly on top of the letters. Take time to press the edges rather firmly. After that let the sun cure the adhesive and wa laa, project complete. One note be careful when drying, the towel can grab the corners and peel them up a bit. It's been almost nine months since I put mine on and still holding up good.

To fill your vehicle up with gas when you run out and someone comes to your rescue with a portable or jerry gas can.
And the only way to get a bottle of dry gas in if somehow you got too much moisture in the tank.
Like let it sit with a low fuel level too long in the wrong weather conditions and condensation collects on the inside of the tank.

Personally I think we were very very LUCKY Ford managed to produce a brand new model and one that was so innovative and technically advanced it single handedly made all of the rest of the small AWD sport Ute’ category out of date and in desperate need of a complete redesign. Not just rearranging fenders, lights and dash boards.
As they have been doing.
These pandemic vehicles are pretty darn good in my opinion.
.
I’ve got all the missing parts as mine was built mid 2020.
But if I didn’t I’d have them all on my dime with no worries.
I like my pandemic vehicle.
.
True FORD guys don’t jump ship and run when things get rough.

Don't forget the Hood Insulator. (This company link is a Ford Dealer that sells parts that is often as cheap or cheaper than the others but with lower shipping.. I have ordered from them in the past... Cannot vouch other than my previous order was spot on): M1PZ-16738-B - Insulator Hood - Sunrise Ford Parts
