That is for the tow hook that if it existed, screws into a fitting behind a panel on the passenger side of the front bumper. I don't have one in there either.
Could you take a picture of that item removed from its holder? Hard to tell exactly what it might be.So I was digging around the cargo area and looked at the emergency spare storage area. There is a small funnel on the left side in a storage slot and the right side has a similar slot that looks as if it was designed to hold something but was empty.
See pic below, just wondering if anyone has
Something there or knows what it’s for.
Hmmm . . . guess a call to the dealer is in order for those of us with empty slots.One in the front, see my post above, I did not find one in the back and again, understand it because it would not be needed with the receiver being capable of having a recovery apparatus put into it.
Yup.. I am gonna stop tomorrow and check with my parts guy. We have made a pretty good relationship. Between all the stuff I ordered for my 6.0 and then my F150... he knows me well. Heck one day I was in there we went out back during his lunch and ran a ntiro RC buggy he had with him. Luckily I used to fly RC Helis, and plenty of buggys so when he handed my the controller, I was not a big noobHmmm . . . guess a call to the dealer is in order for those of us with empty slots.
I did not want to make a new thread just for this but does anyone know when you buy for Explorer, where can you find your vehicle key code to if needed, leave the keys inside if you have the code. Dealer did not give it to me and I still have to double check my owners manual package for the 2nd time just in case.
