2020 Ford Escape Easy Access Cargo Cover

Recommended Posts

I ordered a 2020 Escape, however after the order was placed, I decided I wanted to add the Easy Access Cargo Cover (EACC).Now, here is where it gets interesting:
In talking to someone on parts.ford.com, I was given the part number for the cover itself and a local dealership sells it for $115.
It also requires two clips that mount to the liftgate, and two pins that the support line/string attaches to on the interior trim panels. The two retainers are $5/ea, but they cannot find the pins for the trim panel separately.

I can't seem to find a part listing for them either, and the parts.ford person I spoke with claimed the only way to get them was to order the trim panels with them.


Is Ford really expecting someone to order $400+ in trim panels just to get the two pin/hooks to add the EACC? The "Major" part number for the trim is the same with or without the 'package shelf' option, and in looking at one on the lot, even without the EACC, it has plugs over the holes where the hook pins go.

A member on another Escape forum  had the same issue . He had the pins fabricated by a 3D printer . Attached is the file that he provided to the members if they wanted to have the same done :

Just FYI for anyone else interested in the cargo cover.

 

This is the part number: LJ6Z-78550A74-AA

This is the best price I've found: https://www.oemfordpartsdirect.com/cart

You can get the pins you need 3D printed here for less than $13.00: https://www.makexyz.com/

I just bought a 2020 Escape Titanium Hybrid.  I cannot believe it has no cargo cover and that I noticed this after a week of ownership, after I went to leave something in the back.

Wondering if Jody (or anyone else) was able to complete the installation process as described by members john_688 and Tony above.  It looks like the link to the clips zip file is no longer there?  Also, my existing trim panels have the location where the pins go, but I was expecting that to be a removable plug.  It's just a solid piece.  Has anyone been able to 3D print and install the plugs without destroying their panels?  Has the dealership done it?  

Really disappointed that A. this isn't a standard feature and B. this might be a giant hassle/expensive to get installed.  Any other words of wisdom greatly appreciated.
