So after installing my new CF decklid panel, I just noticed the emergency trunk pull tab is absent.

It’s not on the same spot and I looked around the trunk.
(see pic)

Did Ford stopped adding them on the 21?
Everything else works to open it (dash button, remote and trunk button)Just seems odd that they did not put an emergency release pull tab.

Those are actually federally mandated. Am I surprised Ford forgot to install one? Nah.

Is that not it tucked under the center mount?

I had the cover removed when I was installing the Anderson decklid.
I looked everywhere near the lock/ latch. Even looked inside the crevices in the trunk lid...nada.

Maybe someone else with a ‘21 can post a picture of their trunk as comparison? I have a ‘15 but not sure it would be the same.

In your picture, directly below the trunk latch mechanism is a light colored something that looks like the tab in the trunk of my 21 coupe. Your trunk lid lining has been removed but my tab is to the right and slightly below the latch mechanism.

On my 15 its part of the truck latch, its not something that could be forgotten. My guess is yours isn’t designed to have one. Do you even have a hole in your trim cover for it?

Look at his magnified picture, it's hanging under the latch mechanism

yes, the cutout/ slot is there on the trunk liner.
