Almost looks like a older escape ie. 2005 could have the hood, headlights and front facia swapped from a 2010 model. the fenders look like they are the same.... Anyone tried this at all? f150's used to do it....

Sorry to say it, but the fenders are completely different, especially where they meet the doors.

I do not see a difference in fenders...... The only part that matters is where the fender meets the hood and headlights and they look the same.




EDIT: bah looks like they may of moved the door closer to the wheel well. But if the headlight placement on the fenders is the same it could work.

The 2008+ roof, windshield, and some of the body structure parts are the same as those on 2005-2007 models, but none of the other exterior body panels are interchangeable.

Trust me on this one.

Exactly. And most threads don't die here, either.

They simply morph into off-topicness.

Your fog lamp circles are there (they need to be cut at the circular cut line in each opening), and so are the mounts and connectors.

Just buy the factory fog lamp switch (part number 5L8Z-15A214-CAA), and two of the factory fog lamp assemblies (part number 2M5Z-15200-AB).

Plug 'n play.

See? Off-topicness.

The 2005-2007 models didn't need brackets. Each fog lamp assembly has mounting tabs. You need four small screws (I think that #8 or #10, 1/2" pan-head sheet metal screws will work).
