Door Latch Striker Bushing 1971-1993 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Issue but not really... Bought these for an 82 Mustang GT... Door strikers and hatch strikers, the washers did not come off on my car... Ended up just slicing these bushings down one side and gluing the on... works just fine now. But they wouldnt just slide on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked for my hatch striker As I saw by another reviewer, this fits the latch striker if you slit it and reglue it. Was an easy and quick fix for my SVO and stopped the annoying hatch rattle. They were so cheap here that I bought a few extras for the doors as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from needs some different procedure for hatch I bought these for my 86 svo. For the hatch cut bushing lengthwise on one side. Put it in hot water for 10 minutes and then used gap filling super glue. Worked great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheap but tricky. I put these on my 83 GT doors and the hatch. As others have stated, the washers don't come off the striker bolts. Others have slit the plastic and used it but I took a different approach. I just got some 1.5" fender washers (1/8" thickness with a 3/8" hole) and used those. I first used a Dremel cutting wheel to slice the old washers and remove them from the striker bolts. I then slid on the plastic pieces and put on the new washers. Note that the 3/8" hole in the washer was perfect for the hatch bolt but my door bolts are slightly larger so I used a step drill bit to very slightly enlarge the hole to fit over the striker bolt. The second issue I had was that these were slightly (1/16") too long for the door bolts so when I put them in and tightened them down, they mushroomed ever so slightly which caused the door to not open once I slammed it shut! I panicked for a second but after holding up on the handle and pushing/pulling etc. I was able to open the door. I just shaved a sliver off the ones for my doors and then put them back on and no more mushrooming...they worked perfectly! The hatch striker bolt has a slightly longer shaft and did not require shaving. Bottom line is that these are much cheaper than new striker bolts (I had $3 for these plastic pieces and about 30 cents for each washer). However, best method requires cutting off the original washer and fitting a new one...which takes a only few minutes of time if you know all this ahead of time (I thought I'd be done in like 5 minutes but it took me about an hour including opening the door that got stuck, learning curve, and determining how to solve the issue). Maybe later models had removable washers since some folks say they went right on...not sure. Good luck!

Product Questions

I have a 78 Mustang II, I just bought new striker bolts that came with hard plastic bushings. They made my doors impossible to open. What is this made of and will it work well with my car?

Asked by: JetPilot
Not sure in your case but did you check to see if tightening down the bolt made the plastic mushroom any? I bought these replacement plastic pieces for my strikers on my 83 GT and they were about 1/16" too long. Once I put them on the striker bolt and tightened them, they slightly mushroomed (making them a little bit thicker) which made my door nearly impossible to open after closing. I just removed the bolts and sliced about 1/16" off the end of these plastic pieces with my table saw (you could do it any number of ways...even with a sharp pocket knife) and then reinstalled. After shortening them, they didn't mushroom thus retaining their original diameter and my doors worked perfectly. I don't know if this applies to your case but it is worth checking. Hope this helps.

I have a 1984 so and my striker Assyrian does not have the black bracket. Does it make a difference in fit?

Door Latch Striker Bushing 1971-1993 Video Transcript
By Bill Tumas: If you're experiencing play in the door latch of your '79 through '93 Mustang, before you out and buy an expensive door latch, you'll want to check your door striker bushing. Many times this bushing has failed or gone altogether and that's going to cause a lot of play in your door latch.

The door striker bushing is going to be located right here on the door striker. In the case of our '90 GT it's completely gone, which is causing some of the play we're getting in our door. As you can see we have a decent amount of up and down play in our door and our door pins are good so the striker bushing is probably causing the problem.

Ford used this same striker bushing in all '71 through '93 Mustangs. Installation is very simple. The only tool required is going to be a T50 Torx bit. Simply remove the striker. Once we have the striker off, remove the washer, unthread the striker from the catch, install the new striker bushing, install the washer, then reinstall on the car, and your installation's finished.

It's only a small inexpensive bushing, but it makes a huge difference. The door closes nice and tight now. All of our play is also gone from the door. Installation should literally take you less than a minute and you'll be back on the road in no time.
