View Full Version : Front bumber and headlight issue

10-08-2004, 11:53 AM
I was waxing my 03 about a month ago and noticed that my front bumper had some serious play in it. So I pop the hood and begin searching for all the fastening points. I turns out that there are two plastic screws where the hood latch is that appear to be the main stabilizers for the whole front bumper! And neither one was tight, nor could be tightened further (Stripped).

So, I removed them and popped two rivots in there. That did the trick. Only now I recently noticed that my front right head light would jump up and down when driving over a bumpy area. I took it into ford and they replaced my headlight, but after a week my new one is doing the same! I'm pissed!:mad:

headlamps should not bounce, you have another problem with the mounting points. Check to see if something is cracked or broken around the headlamp area... maybe the place where they insert the black pins?? :doubt:
