I'm missing the clip in the glove box that holds owner manual pouch. I asked my sales it's stander for all trim or it's optional? and The sales said it's may be optional.

I really doubt that it is an option.

Welcome to the Forum Jason. :wave:
The clip is not an option. On the AutoNation site it shows as being for;

Base, Limited, Limited Hybrid, Platinum, ST, XLT2.3L L4 - Gas, 3.0L V6 - Gas, 3.3L V6 - Electric/Gas, 3.3L V6 - Gas

Clip was a build design change. Look up SSM 48626... here is the verbage from FORD

2020 Explorer vehicles built on or after 21-Jan-2020 will have a glove compartment which no longer has a clip/bracket to hold the owner manual. The clip/bracket has been eliminated from the glove compartment. The vehicle is not misbuilt. Do not submit a claim for this condition.

Thank you for the info. That clears that up. Probably a huge cost-cutting move. :laugh: I guess the parts sites haven't updated their info.

Thanks, peter
Dealer installed the Rear Air Deflector for free and told me the towing eye is optional, I paid $50 for it.

Did you check to make sure you have the installation point on the front bumper for the towing eye? That was a design change too...



SSM 48983 - 2020 Explorer/Police Interceptor Utility - Front Recovery Hook - Built On Or After 14-Nov-2019
Some 2020 Explorer/Police Interceptor vehicles built on or after 14-Nov-2019 may not be equipped with an installation point behind the front fascia to mount a front recovery hook. The installation point was deleted as a running change. The vehicle is not misbuilt. The addition of any parts would not be considered a warrantable repair. Do not submit a claim for this condition.

Really thought it was odd to put a slot/shelf in the glovebox for the owners manual binder, but have no way to keep it in its place (for us OCD types). That was nice with the 5G Explorer that there was a shelf for the booklet above the glovebox. Just stumbled on the lack of the clip - such a petty change on Ford's part. Looks like it's time to fabricate something.

I realized that I have one today and put the binder in it for the first time since owning this vehicle since December!

Is that clip easy to pop off? Curious if it has an engineering number stamped in to it. Crazy that it looked to be available only with the complete door, but I have the guys at my local dealer looking in to it. Ford probably got tired of warranty claims from it breaking off, which would have been easily remedied if it was a separate piece. Very annoying for something so minor.

Here's the slot on mine where the clip was supposed to be:

The clip presence really depends on when the vehicle was built, deletion was a running production change.
