Just wondering if any one knows of an after market or Ford CHROME Bug deflector for the Flex. I saw one on a Ford Edge in Buffalo and it looked fantastic! I meant to get the manufacturer but it did not happen. I have seen the black bug deflectors around,but they look to plain. The chrome one is very suttle but effective. It acsented the 3 bar chrome front end perfectly. Please let me know.

I bought Mrs. Hoseclamp a nice sterling grey Limited with the works, put on the Ford moulded mudflaps fr/rr, window vent shades and the bug/rock deflector. Looks good, didn't make it look "truckish". I'll take a pic and post.

The accessories protect and still look good IMO, a few there of the winter tires we're using too.

I recently joined and in the new membership area I posted some non-snow pictures of the same sterling gray car with the mud-splash guards and bug guard installed like hoseclamps car. Do not need the AWD here in Sonoma County. Would be interested to hear if hoseclamp installed his own accessories or had the dealer do it. The bug guard was a real b*$ch to install. Perhaps mine was molded a bit off. Still enjoying the wifes car and she is kind enough to let me drive it when we're out together. Thinking about getting the lighted siil plates but am curious to find out if these can be installed by a shade tree mechanic like myself.

:D
Hamador1 the kit is relatively easy to install. You need to be able to remove some trim panels and, use hand tools, and know how to solider. You can go to the Ford Custom Accesories website and look over the installation sheet to see if your comfortable with doing the install yourself.

Go to www.fordaccessories.com

select the "Tech Specs" tab at the top right of the page.

Then select type: "Genuine Ford Accessories"

Select Description: "Interior"
Select Catagory: "Trim"

Finally, select the pdf file called "Flex (2009-CMY) Illuminated Door Sill Installation Instructions"

Good Luck!

I put a Stampede deflector on my 2010 Limited and it gave me clicking sounds inside the vehicle. Thought it was the post's on the windshield. Went to the dealer with TSB but the deflector was the problem.
