The hatch striker is what the latch locks on to when the hatch is closed. The hatch striker assembly is made up of a bolt, a large washer and a bushing. Overtime, the continuous scraping of the latch wears out the bushing. A worn bushing will result in a misaligned hatch.
Just like the original, this ACP (FM-BD050D) hatch striker features the same parts and sizes for a direct bolt-in. Installation of the hatch striker is very simply but requires a torx socket. This is a simple fix for quieting down your squeaky Mustang.
The hatch striker takes a tremendous amount of abuse over the years and will eventually wear to the point of failure. A rattling or misaligned hatch is a sign of a worn hatch striker assembly. Replace the hatch striker assembly before catastrophic failure occurs.
*Later 5/1991-1993 cars require removal of the bushing.
