    Don't waste your money

    I'm not happy with the fitment of the cowl at all. It seemes to now have nice outward bow in it. Also the rubber molding on it seems like it was glued with low quality glue the molding just came right ...

    Review & Install Video

    Hi I’m Justin with, and I’m checking out a must have part for any New Edge resto, thanks to this Cowl Vent grille, fitting all 99-04 Mustangs. Let’s face it, these New Edge Mustangs, aren’t so new anymore, 10+ years of abuse can take their toll on certain parts, one of which has to be the factory cowl vent grille which is notorious for fading and cracking, this reproduction grille is a perfect factory replacement all the way down to the quality fit and finish. This grille has been made to original factory specifications, and is even completed in the same textured grain finish as its factory counterpart. Plus, this grille does feature pre installed weather stripping, which is a nice little added touch. This grille does install using the factory hardware so just make sure you don’t lose any of the metal clips while uninstalling the original. You will want to get those factory wiper arms out of the way before you get started with the install. Once you remove those get to work removing the factory cowl vent. Keep in mind while doing this you’re probably going to break most, if not all of the plastic tabs on the original, but don’t worry about those as they’re not needed on the new grille. Once the old grille is off, go ahead and transfer the washer modules to the new grille, and then install it by pressing down gently. Reinstall those wiper arms, and that’s it. You should be good to go in about 45 minutes. So if the factory cowl grille on your 99-04 Mustang looks like it’s been through hell and back, then be sure to check out this quality replacement right here at

    Will this fit a 1998 mustang gt?


    • Maybe I am mistaken. But the part does say 99-04. My math is a bit rusty. But I do t think 98 is in between. 99-04

      Looks good. Good fit.

      Don't remove the old part unless you have the aft metal retaining clips that hold the panel in. The plastic tabs they attach to fall off and are gone forever.

      no instructions?

      this is probably the most frustrating thing i had to install. It came without instructions!!! This is something you learn as you go. It took two people and about a hour or so to install. Everything was ok just remove screws, unplug windshield washer nozzle,and have fun trying to squeeze in the the expensive piece of plastic. I felt extremely satisfied after the installation because my mustang looked a whole lot better than before with the broken, cracked, and worn out cowl.

      The lack of instructions and brackets, which broke when taking old cowl out, was disappointing.

      Rubber falls off easily

      This was a great game changer for the appearance of my Stang. I was NOT impressed with how easily the rubber weather stripping pieces were peeling off straight out of the box so I ended using some of my own 'goop' to get those to stick down to the cowl better. Don't forget to keep your metal clips and reshape them the best you can for a tight fit after install as there are none provided with this kit. Also, now is a great time to repaint your wiper arms since you will have them off the car anyways.....go ahead and get that antenna out of the way and throw it in the paint pile as well.

      Quick and Easy - better than OEM

      Perfect fit. Dramatic change over my cracked factory piece. Note: does not come with new plastic screws or replacement metal clips and could not find any through AM. Replacement plastic screws can be had at local auto supply but the metal clips appear to be Dealer only. Screws and clips could be re-used if they are still intact.

      Excellent product, great fit

      This product fit right out of the box. No trimming needed. only draw back is that it does not come with the clips to secure the cowl vent at the windshield. All other gaskets are attatched.

      fresh look

      Highly recommended after a hailstorm cracked and broke my old one. Used a little glue to help seal it on one side. Hardware (not included, save the old) can be a bit finicky, but with an extra set of hands and a little bit of patience, you will be rewarded with a new, shiny black look.

      Looks great! Just as good as factory.

      I was really surprised at how good this cowl vent fit. I installed it by myself in about an hour and a half, could be done in less time with two people. I used the stock metal locking clips and they worked great. I recommend this vent to everyone.

      Very quick and easy install. Did hate that it didn't come with hardware but managed to save a few off the old piece. Works and looks wonderful. It is a little pricey but is the cheapest I've found anywhere. Would definitely buy again.

      Cowl Vent Grill

      Great fit worth the whole 140$ my only complaint is the clips being a pain to put on, and I had to pull off my drivers side A pillar trim to install it. But all is forgivin because it looks great and the windshield fluid sprayers work in this cowl. You will recycle the retainer clips and the windshield sprayers and hoses.
