Does anyone know how to install the trunk cargo net?  Apparently there are hidden hooks mounted to the back of the tail lights behind the carpeting.  And if those are where you are supposed to mount the top of the cargo net, what are those two other screws with a plastic cap on them on either side of the trunk used for?

 

My cargo net didn't come with any instructions or hardware other than the net itself.

Can't answer your question, but I have a question for you! Did you order it with the car or after the car arrived? Acdii mentioned at some point that if you order it with the car, the hooks needed to install it come installed, but if you don't order it with the car, you have to also order some hooks?

Mine came with the net, on the sticker at least, they forgot to include it with the car and left the hooks off too.

 

Part number for the hooks W716357-S900 package of 4

 

Do you have any installed or all 4 missing?

I ordered the net with the car and the net itself was laying in the trunk in a plastic bag when I picked up the car.  

 

The bottom "bolts" I'll call them were already in the car.  They are basically a plastic screw with a large plastic flat head where the bottom loops of the net attach over them securely.  On the top, there are two screws an either side of the trunk opening with these strange tapered plastic threaded caps.  The upper loops of the net slip right off when attached.  I also tried playing the net loops under the plastic cap but then the cap just pops right off.

 

I called my salesman yesterday and he said most people don't bother installing the net so he didn't think to mention it.  (Did he even realize that I purposefuly ordered the net with the car?).  He said to come by today and between the two of us, we'd figure it out.  

 

I was trying to avoid that hassle so I thought I'd ask you guys.

Thanks for the heads up.  I ordered the net with the car, so I'll be checking this at delivery.

If the dealer cant get their act together, I have 2 left overs, they come 4 in a pack. The dealer should just order that part number I listed above and be done with it. Doesnt take rocket science! :)

I skipped the net because I thought that the battery hump would keep stuff from slipping too far foward.  Is it a worth while add on?

I was thinking the same thing! Put 3-4 grocery bags in there and there' nowhere for them to slide to :) Now that I think about it, if we put anything on top of the battery, they'll slide down to the lower level and squish anything in there!

I use it a lot. If I have a small bag or two, just stick them in there and not worry about the stuff bouncing around.

Does the car have any hooks you can tie the bags to - instead of using the net. My Gti has 2 hooks on the rear seats and one on top, so I can just hook my bags to those and they'd stay in place.

I havent noticed any, the 10 has what you are talking about, but is also a deeper trunk. The 13 is shallow, not much room between the threshold and floor.

I  took delivery of my Titanium hybrid last week and also could not figure out how to attach the cargo net (which I had ordered as an option when spec'ing the car). The dealer looked at three other hybrids in stock and they were all exactly like mine - 2 small rods for attaching the cargo net at the top unlike the two at the bottom which both had retainers on them.   They made a few phone calls and told me that they had ordered parts and would call me when they came in.   This certainly looks like a factory issue of not installing them.  Anyhow, that is the only negative I have discovered thus far.  My overall mileage is 35.2 as of my first fill up yesterday.  It is gradually increasing and I do seem to be getting readouts in the 40's when the car is shut off after short in town trips.  The motor seems on more to warm up the cold engine than anything else (as a result, when Spring finally arrives in Michigan, hopefully that will help the mileage)

You would think even after the bulletin was sent out regarding the missing cargo nets, that they would have at least put the darn hooks in the car when they built it!

My dealer has ordered two cargo nets so far using the Part Number (DS7Z-54550A66-B) shown on the Ford Accessory website and neither came with hooks even though the description says they are included if required.  The parts breakdown for the FFH does not list any hooks for the top two connections where the "rod" protrudes out of the liner.  The Parts Manager has escalated this up the Ford food chain so hopefully I'll have an update soon, I'll post what I find out as soon as I hear something.

I ordered a cargo net online for the 2013 FFH and found out it was back ordered.

Guy says "apparently the hybrids use a slightly different cargo net and these

can be a little bit hard to come by..." huh, that can't be right, is it?  Only ever

saw one part number.

 

And added the set of those 4 wingnuts for $4.60.  From partscheap.com that

I have used before.  Very good prices and responsive.

 

Has anybody applied the bumper protector for the Fusion?  Anxious to get

a coat of Blackfire on the car this weekend and wonder if that will cause

any problems with the bumper protector.

 

If you've never heard of this stuff, it is *very* easy to use and protects the

paint like mad.  My 4 y/o FFH still had water bead up and looked like new.
