Hi AE3,
Thx for reply (y)
Its typical, I spent a good hour or so trying to find out what they were without posting and then within mins of getting your reply found them in a manual.
Ford call them " Forced ventilation" which your reply explains.
I was asking as now I've taken my bumper off, the little "dink" appears to have done a bit more damage to that panel.
I'm thinking I'll just straighten the panel so the bumper mates up in line and not worry about the broken vent.
Thx

You may develop an insect or similar problem if no vent is fitted.
Hi Sethorion
I've already got an insect problem, but thats another story :ROFLMAO:
Seriously,
I've got both vents fitted and both have the rubber flaps intact, the one on the o/s though has some of the viens cracked (behind the rubber flaps), so it should be functional, and as its behind a bumper I cant imagine anyone noticing.
Its not a "show car" after all,
Thx.
