**** Below is a "How-To" Tutorial on removing the old, 2010-2012 style side fender badging that has the verbiage 'TAURUS' molded into them, and instead, upgrading to the newer, 2013+ fender badging that has the 'SHO' verbiage.

This write up, as it appears below, was originally posted in another community, of which I am also a staff member of.

Therefore, thanks and kudos goes out entirely to him for taking the time to do this. ****




Items you will need:

Putty Knife, or a Thin, Sturdy Piece of Cardboard (used for prying)
A clean quality micro fiber cloth
Quick Detailer Spray
A claybar (completely optional)


Parts You Need:

DG1Z16178A
DG1Z16178B



Someone recommended a putty knife but if you are worried about your paint like me you'd consider other paint safe items to push the tabs in....

So in this picture I'm jamming thin cardboard down inbetween the fender and the vent:



Gently pry on the side closest to the door jam toward you away from the fender like this while attempting to push the tabs down with the cardboard while pulling off the vent:


It should come off easily if not try the tabs on the bottom.

When it comes off it will look like this:


Spray the dirt and crap with some quick detailer and wipe it off:


It should be clean if you find specs of "rail dust" use a claybar like i did and it should be clean like this:


Now take the new fendervent that fits and push it in firmly till you hear or feel a slight click the newer ones have very little click but push all over firmly, to be sure you can attempt to pry it off gently to confirm a proper secure snug fit:


NOW STEP BACK AND ADMIRE your upgrade:



To give you a better understanding of the clips this image should help you:


This is the back of the old vent:


This is the new vent:
