1999-2004 Wiper cowl vent for $111.37

Found this last night: New Wiper Cowl Grille Black Ford Mustang 2004 2003 FO1270102 3R3Z6302228AAA | eBay plus FREE shipping!

I couldn't pass up the price so I ordered one. Thought I'd share this since most places sell it for $200 or more.

That's cheap! I wonder how the quality is, hence the low price.

Fedex tracking says it will be here on the 28th. I'll let you know about the quality when I get it.

Great. If I decide not to sell my Mustang I might get one of them if the quality is good enough.

I must have misread the Fedex tracking, it now says its still in KERNERSVILLE, NC. Should be another day or so.

Well got the cowl vent in today and I'm not to pleased with the quality. I guess you get what you pay for. First of all one of the two rubber standoffs located on the ends is broke off and nowhere to be found. Secondly there are none of the metal clips for fastening it down. Auto parts store doesn't carry them and Ford said I would have to buy a whole cowl to get the clips. I found two of the old clips but I need four more. Haven't decided whether I'll try to make this one do or send it back.
Bottom line, stay away from this one. Hope I didn't screw anyone over.

Thanks for sharing your experience, and I hope people will learn from it. I'm sorry to hear about the problem, but let us know if you get it figured out!

Well I contacted Carpartswholesaler and explained to them the part was damaged and I wanted to return it and not exchange it because it didn't have the clips to attach it. Well they apoligized, refunded my money (already in Paypal account), and told me I could keep the part.
So it looks like I'll be trying to make this one work, for free!

Well DJAlsip,
I glued on a piece of plastic to hold the rubber standoff that was broken off and managed to find 4 more of the retainer clips at Pull A Part. They even let me have them for free!
I got it on today but it isn't sitting flush against the window at the passenger spray nozzle. I pulled it off and on several times checking the alignment but everything is going together as it should. I'm still not pleased with the quality but considering I got the cowl vent and the retainer clips for free I can't complain too much.
