Front Fascia separated from Mounting points
I was messing around with the car this morning and the front fascia seemed a bit loose so I opened the hood. The 2 front fascia mounting points had broken off (at the top between the headlights and forward of the radiator). The black plastic screws are still attached to the pieces that sheared off.
1 week ago last friday, I had installed a Cobra R front splitter and rear wing (both Ford Motorsports parts). Could this have caused the failure in the front fascia mounting points? I can't believe that it would - it just does not make sense. It doesn't say anything in the install directions about reinforcing anything PRIOR to install nor were we able to find anything to the contrary anywhere when looking into bolting on these 2 parts...
My first stop tomorrow is the dealer.
