Have to agree Freddy, that there are a lot of parts on the Ecosport are flimsy. The rear parcel shelf fixtures, the above yellow handle bonnet opener. Years ago these things were made of metal and not plastic and lasted forever.
Another example of my own Ecosport is that the wiper screen wash water tubes are no longer one piece from water bottle to schoosher nozzle and are made up of a number of tube lengths with plastic joint pieces, and these can pop, if the water freezes in the tube in winter (if you forget low temp screen wash liquid, which i did LOL). Mine pop-ed at the back and rear screen wash did not work. Ford told me to not forget low temp screen wash in future DOH.
PS.....I have had no problems with getting parts out of Ford parts department, my only grumble is price and the time to get them to source the part and get it to the dealership. Usually is in weeks rather than days.
