3rd brake light trim 99 contour, Interchanges ?

Recommended Posts

i'm having a hard time finding a non-sun baked and brittle trim piece , does anyone know if any other Fords shared this piece ? Mine was broken, just sitting, held in place by gravity and carpet fuzzies, and all the salvage ones I've found are no bueno either.

I can't find one either.

Mine turned to dust when I

removed it before window tint shop.

 

I have LED out of a Taurus

that is close but have to fab mounting.

 

My theory is find one that matches

angle of glass and I can get matching

carpet and make OEM looking cover.

I had this happen to the plastic shroud covering the middle rear seatbelt. The brake light trim was long gone before I ever saw this car. This seems like a business opportunity for someone with a 3D printer.

Im looking at other makes too..there has to be something close..Im redoing the package tray soon, so the holes can come and go just fine. Ill figure it out and jump up and down and report back.

I haven't tried install of it yet, just pulled out of junk yard today.

LED third brake light out of Mercury Montego.

It's rear window carpet is flat up to glass like ours.

It screwed to the carpet, no clips, tabs, etc. Just lays flat on carpet and four screws from underside.

I'll try it tomorrow and take pics if it fits.

Out of a Mercury Montego. Clear lens with LEDs.

It screwed to the package tray carpet.

I'm going to mark its location on the carpet with some blue painters tape.

Remove carpet and attach with its screws.

Its tan, I have to clean it and Dupli-color vinyl dye it gray first.
