Missing Parts

I’ve seen several threads/posts on other forums about STs missing parts.
There are 3 items that most STs were delivered without.
A strut insulation cover under the hood, a rear wind deflector, and the front tow bolt.

Just curious how many here are also missing these parts.

I don't have the tow hook... going to check for the other two now.

I do not have the other two either.

Not all come with the towing eye. Pop the front cover where it installs - if there is not a spot to thread it in, that’s your answer. The parts department at my selling dealership printed out the HVBoM for me, which also indicated “Less towing hooks”, both front and rear. The owners manual states that they are included based on regional requirements, or something to that effect.

Interesting.
What region are you in?

South of Detroit by a couple hours. Interestingly, my previous '14 Explorer Sport (built for the same region) had a towing eye unlike this one. Not sure of the justification, but not worried about it in this case.
