A part fell off my Escape and I'm wondering what it is. It is a
plastic part that is glued/taped to the cross member just in front
of the bottom of the radiator. There is one on the left side (or
was) and one on the right. The part is a cylinder about an inch
long with a half-inch long solid nipple protruding to its rear. It
is supported by a small square base that is taped to the frame.
There is a 12 mm diameter recess in the front and a small opening
in the center of that recess that connects to a 9 mm opening in
the bottom of the cylinder. It is not connected via wire or hose
to anything else.
I know Ford doesn't pay to put parts in a car that have no
function (not deliberately, that is).
Any idea? :-)
