There is a massive container shortage for good coming from China. I wonder if those cars were sent out knowing those clips were not available. Ford said we have xxxxx clips and need to produce xxxx cars so each cars misses some clips.

There is just no way this stuff gets missed in a just in time manufacturing plant on job 2 stuff. Job 1 I can see.

Ford knows this stuff is missing or sub par but numbers matter more.

I like to disassemble things.
OP...is the crimped portion of the hose you showed making contact with the aluminum casting? Yours almost looks as though they are touching.

Here's mine, and there is space between them...

Sorry you had your car arrive with these issues, very cool to know there is a 20 GT500 in Iceland, hope you get things sorted out without too much trouble. 100% tax rate!? Ouch. Enjoy the car

Thanks, yes I feel the same, My family has 7 Mustang(69,70,95,01,03,05,06) my father is a car mechanic and i have been fixing cars all my life and this car has the one of the worst alignment i have seen in a Mustang, to buy a 2020 GT500 for me is not easy plus i have to pay 100% in taxes on top of the buying price. I have been waiting for over 17 months to get the GT500 and it is very sad to see this, missing parts, hoses badly placed, 2 screws on the fenders has been repainted very badly trying to align the front end by the factory
About the dealer warranty, there is no warranty as you cannot buy car like this here, but i knew that before i bought it
But i love this car and it will be 100% after few parts and alignment

it is disappointing to hear about the poor quality control and I can understand how owners would get pissed off. My buddies 2020 base had 2 or 3 fender bolts on both sides touched up with a brush. Looked terrible. Im assuming a hood/fender alignment issue.
I wish you the best of luck with your Shelby. You may be the only one in Iceland with a 2020 gt500.
