I agree with this. The way it folded looks like it was hit from the front with somethingI think you hit something like a pothole or something that pushed that splitter back... being attached in the rear it folded rather than going in and cracking your front bumper (which is good). I sold mine for 200 bucks (complete with nuts and bolts all sides)... They go for 275 or so I believe.
My car had 20,000 miles when I realized I needed a rubber mallet to put it further into the slots. I wouldn't rule that out yet.I would rule that out. Car has 8500 miles on it. I really dont know what happened. It would have had to come loose. They almost get caught on something that would allow it to wrap under the car.
All the mounts seem intact. I removed the 6 bolts holding it on the car. Just looks like the front clips came loose.
Mine was the same; I ended up spending $50 on hardware and reinstalling the entire thing correctly myself. I can only assume lazy jerks at the dealer just threw the hardware that came with the car in the trash. My experience buying a new Ford product has been less than stellar. Good thing the car itself is amazing, because every other aspect of dealing with Ford sucks.I'd say its like a 99% chance that this was an issue with the dealer install. Mine looked normal when I bought the car but upon further inspection it was missing like 50-60% of the hardware holding it in place. They literally just left out all of the bolts along the middle of the splitter, because they couldn't get it fully seated thus the bolts would line up. Its honestly pretty embarrassing for Ford how many of these cars left the dealers with these splitters installed incorrectly.
From looking at the pictures, I think the screw holes in the mounting tabs tell the tale: They don't have clip nuts on them and they aren't torn out. That means they didn't have screws through them when the splitter detached.Took this car yesterday to visit my inlaws. Not sure how it happen but heard a loud bang. Was able to pull into an Ace hardware and look under the car. The whole front splitter was folded under the car!!!! Went into Ace and bought a ratchet set to remove it. Put the car in reverse to flip the splitter back into normal spot.
SO now my question is.. Anyone else this happen too? Did I do something wrong? Do I replace with stock or aftermarket? Does anyone know of a place that has them in stock?
Can I drive the car without one? Front end lift at high speeds right? but normal driving ok?
Do you think the Sliplo kit would have prevented this?
The R one-piece version with larger front corner profile is expensive. The base GT350 splitter has 3 sections and is usually around $350 new.https://www.blueovalindustries.com/2015-2020-mustang/gt350/bp1840.html
Found this? Any thoughts. For some reason I thought they like $1500.00
I had an R and the front splitter was not put on correctly. I took it to a car show with two other 350’s and that’s when I noticed it was not attached correctly.Mine did not looks like this. Car gets lots of love. I would have noticed that I think.

My point is, if you or your dealership didn’t know the difference, you would hardly recognize it.
Who installed it?
You should be able to seat it all the way but you do have to give it a pretty good pop with a dead blower hammer or rubber mallet. I didnt think mine would seat at first either. But I got it to and all the hardware fit.Can confirm mine started falling off at 200 miles on my 2020. I found that 5 bolts were missing! I went to Home Depot and found a body fastener that is the same diameter by slightly shorter but still works. I could only get 1 bolt in because the holes do not line up (between bumper and splitter).
I imagine that is why the dealership didn't fully install mine because they are lazy but it is also Ford's fault for not making sure it fits in place. That would only take 3 minutes tops. This is just embarrassingly bad for Ford. Probably the first and last car I will buy from them. I despise Ford dealers.
That’s sad. My currency is on a dealer-mishap. Otherwise, these splitters are strong and can take a serious beating.Dealer I am guessing. I am not the original owner. 8500 miles on the car. Came from Michigan.
