i got a 99 escort, my bro accidentally ran into the back of my car this weekend and broke a hole in that lil panel right below the taillight. does anyone have the part number for the panel or at least know the proper name for it?
Its called the rear filler panel. No idea on the part number. The earlier model Escorts (97, maybe 98 ) had the reverse lights in this panel but the later years did not. I have no idea of what the part number is though sometimes its stamped on the back of the part. Just go to the junkyard and get what you need, you may even find one in the same color.
