Question about 2001 Ford Focus
The prop rod does not attach firmly and sometimes blocks the hood from closing properly. I am worried the hood will fall and it is very annoying trying to find the correction positioning so the hood closes! Any suggestions.
First you will need to get a hood prop bushing from pobably your Ford dealer or you can get one from a salvage yard. You may also need a hood rod attchment. In order to attach your hood rod on. In order to allow your hood to close without the rod interfering with the closing of your hood.This can either be obtained at your dealer or salvage yard. Then you will need a 4or 5 foot poll in order to prop your hood.So that you can place the bushing in and also hood attachment bushing.Both bushings snap right in. You will need to take your hood rod and place it in the hole of the bushing the hood rod should have a short bend at the bottom of it.Like an L or 7 the L shape should seat it self into the bushing.In order to erect the rod to hold the hood up.Or in order to attach it on the hood attachment.Before closing the hood. The hood rod bushing for extending your hood rod.In order to hold your hood up.Goes in the side of the inside frame of the body to the rear of the passenger side of the car again it just snaps in. And the hood rod attachment goes towards the front of the passenger side and it also snaps in.It's located horizontal of the headlight.The hood rod bushing is a 2 sided little round shaped plastic bushing just big enough for your hood rod to fit through.And it is usually white.
