Simply remove the old fixed pad, drop this in place and tighten the nut. Now your clam lid will pop open to the stop every time. Unfortunately the price from Ford has gone up significantly. Our customers still get a break from the dealer price. They are well worth it.
Most with the older style pad stop work best when warm, as they rely on the gas pressure of the struts to move them up. That's a lot to ask of the struts in all climates and without enough excercise. Problem solved.
All necessary hardware included. A 10 minute install. Most of the time will be spent finding your wrenches.
