Ahhh I hate Ford.. What is this inside the trunk?

So I have a horrible rattle in my trunk when my bass hits and I think I found the problem.

What is the part with the flaps in it? Whenever my bass hits the flaps vibrant insanely fast causing all kinds of noise.

never seen one on a mustang.. but in exploders they're used to help regulate airflow throughout the body to reduce wind noise..

Actually the small line is a fuel drain for the inside of the fuel door. If you pull out the fuel nozzle and fuel drips inside the fuel door it drips into the plastic surrounding the filler pipe. That small drain hose allowes the fuel to drin onto the groud instead of just sitting inside the fuel door making everything nasty and drip down the side of the car.

Re: Ahhh I hate Ford.. What is this inside the trunk?

Just an exhaust vent for the cabin to draw fresh air in.. It's fine to glue it shut.

Re: Ahhh I hate Ford.. What is this inside the trunk?

Most cars have them. They are cabin vents. New car's trunks are pretty airtight and this allows you to shut the trunk without building air pressure. When you shut the trunk, the air inside escapes through the flaps and they prevent the elements from entering the trunk.
