All, I was doing a routine inspection of my Boss's engine compartment. Noticed that the passenger side soft black insert(there are two of them on each side of the intake manifold(sorry, I don't know the name) was loose. In fact, I could lift it off and slide it out if I wanted......

Looked further and the two nuts are gone that hold it down-------weird....never has been removed (at least not that I know of). Short of letting Ford know next time I take it in, I wanted to know if anyone knows the side of the two bolts that stick up so I can put two nuts back in to hold it down....


Zaino, I put that $hit on everything
The fuel rail covers? Look at the other side, odds are they are the same size...
ace72ace, yes, the Fuel rail covers.......and thanks for that tip. I did look yesterday and they were present on the other one but did not take them off yet.....was hoping for the size so I could just go get a few more.....thanks again
