Yup a lot of us. Go to MustangG.com Shelby 350 and theirs a whole bunch of complaints about this.
I might take it to our body shop (i work for a ford store), I took it to them when I got the car but when one of the techs said we could heat this black thing( the carbon fiber support) and get the hood to match .... i waked away.Don that should be an easy fix. Just turn the rubber pads up or down to make even. Just be sure the pads are still touching at the bottom (I put a piece of paper under them and close hood and gently pull paper to be sure the rubber stops are making contact)
I've go this problem big time on my 2017, even the same color. Placing a floor jack under the rear valance, using a thick rubber pad to protect it, and slight up pressure will push the bumper cover into place, but cannot get the cover tab to clip to the actual hook that is part of the under member assembly that is actually bolted to the body. I did a basic disassembly of the bumper cover form the wheel well around to the tail light, just one 7mm bold and a push pin allows you to snap the cover off the under member. The last two clips near the tail light are not hooked at all, nor can they be. It seems as if the under member is too far in, or something is preventing the tab slot from engaging the actual hook. Same thing on both sides. Something is wrong with either the parts, such that they do not interact together as they should, or perhaps the positioning of the under member? (I don't know what this thing is called, but it is black and has the hooks molded into it. I developed a fix last night adding my own screws in the area hidden by the tail light assembly. The tail light comes out very easy, just three 10mm nuts, but this is a bandage. I may remove the entire rear bumper cover today and see if re-positioning the under member, although I do like my fix, it's simple, effective, and you cannot see it with the tail light in place.Does anybody else have this issue? My bumper appears to be separating from the internal clips/support. I noticed this gap yesterday. I am getting so disappointed with this car, that I feel my Honeymoon stage is over. Brakes squealing aready, (have an appointment pending), and now the rear bumper issues. It seems that the car was not put together properly. View attachment 3178 View attachment 3186
Ditto, thanks to mspence45 for the detailed pics...I too am about ready to R&R the rear bumper cover to get it right. I've already had the tail light housing out as well...Interesting! Thanks for posting the pics mspenc45. If I see the sage get worse on mine, I may get brave enough to do it. It looks simple enough.
Soon as I read these posts I ran out to check mine. So far no problems, and I haven't heard about this with the 2018 models so maybe Ford fixed it. Hopefully. I understand the euphoria. ;-). Great car, enjoy!This was the first thing I looked for when I picked up my car this month. I had read about it and seen enough cars to expect the "saggy bumper gap". Fortunately, mine was not that bad. But I'm not hopeful that gravity won't win out. Especially after some track time. Right? Oh well, I knew it going in. I'm not going to let it bring me down from my barely 400 miles euphoric high. This car is amazing.
Kid in a candy store. Night before Christmas. Sometimes I just go in the garage and look at it!
Bummer. Well, I've had mine since Nov. 2017 and no bumper issues, so I guess they don't all have the problem for whatever reason.Nope I've seen a couple of 18's on the showroom floor that already had it. Even those cars on showroom floor that don't show it usually get it after driving them awhile.
Yes - I posted on the official Ford Repair. There is a kit from Ford that seems to solve the problem.Thanks guys for making me look again, after about one year and 3K miles (and a couple track days), mine has started to sag. Damn. Has Ford addressed this with a countermeasure yet?
