2015 Ford Mustang GT: Finding and Fixing a Speed Hole
by Carlos Lago, Road Test Editor on December 17, 2015
While walking up to our 2015 Ford Mustang GT last night, I noticed something hanging out under the passenger side of the front bumper. Our Mustang sits a little lower thanks to its Ford Performance suspension. It looks like someone found out the difference in ride height the hard way.
We've got a speed hole. These things spread quickly, so I jumped to action with a few screwdrivers.
The hard black plastic on the front is supposed to be the outer layer, while the more pliant stuff behind sits on top of it. Somehow, it received enough of an impact to pop it out. It seems to have been like this for a bit, looking at how the rubber has been grounded away.
After a few minutes of patient wedging, I was able to get the flap folded back over the hard plastic. It's still bent a little bit from having been pushed out, but at least the speed hole is gone.
