    Review & Installation 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

      2003 cowl vent grille poor quality

      Rubber seal becomes unattached from vent grille. Vent grille doesn't come with metal install clips which makes it impossible to install. Aftermarket clips aren't available from American Muscle. I should have paid the $50 more and got the grille from Ford that comes with new clips

      Great Item, but.....

      Overall happy with the purchase, but I did have to re-glue the weather strip that goes against the windshield because it came off during the install. Also why no mounting clips? Add the clips and charge a little more. When you're replacing a brittle part like this on a 16 year old car there is no way all of the clips from the old part will be there when you pull it off. I had to order the hardware from another company.

      Great fit! Blemishes on product

      Looks great! A little difficult to get on. There were blemishes on product. I didn’t call to send replacement because I wanted to get it done quickly.

      Doesn’t even fit on the v6

      I have a 2001 v6 convertible and we literally had to shave the sides down just to get it to fit. Haven’t tried the ford part but I would probably recommend it.

      Fits like a glove

      The vent grille fit perfectly on my 2002 Ford Mustang. Make sure you do not forget to use the old clips from your old cowl vent grille. The package itself looked like it was dragged down my driveway but that could have been the delivery company. Shipping was very fast and will definitely use this site again for any future parts.

    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
