Engine Cover question

I am wondering if anyone else has one on their GT and if so, did it require any hardware or is it pretty much "plug-n-play"?

Reason I ask is that I just bought one of the engine covers for my new GT & of course it came with no instructions or hardware.

Thanks.


Good bye 2005 GT

You will need 2 studs & 2 nuts to bolt the cover on.
Part # for the Top Stud W712289-S437
Part # for the nut to the stud W520411-S437
You will need 2 ea of both items.
The studs will replace the 2 top fwd bolts you'll need to remove to install cover.If you need a pic, I'll post later.

I think I have a better chance of winning the lotto than finding those in stock.:hihi:

I have called 4 different dealers & nobody has them in stock & ordering will take awhile they say.

I've seen this now on several sites and thought i'd just give some 2cents. I bought one of the OEM covers and it took all of 5 minutes to install. In my opinion the 2 bolts aren't really needed. All you need to do is pop the wire loom tabs off the studs on each side where the cover slides on to and then slide cover down and reinstall the tabs onto the studs and the cover is now securely fastened (honestly it ain't coming off). Plus if the remote possibility you need to clean the intake (I do everyonce in awhile for car shows) it's easy to remove. As for the bolts it's just not all that noticeble.

CAREFUL. Don't overtighten or you'll pull the thread retainers out of the throttle body. That would not be a good thing.

The spec says torque to 89 INCH LBS
