A access hole in the lower water deflector so you can easily reach up and change the oil filter . And can I change the oil in the New Maverick with just a single wrench , a oil filter wrench , a oil pan and funnel ?

I posted this to give the Ford engineers an idea. Hopefully they will put a simple screw on cover that uses no screws to remove it . Unlike what they been doing for far far to long . Which is making us remove 10 to 15 hex screws and remove the whole plastic cover that’s like 36” by 40” .

I agree with you. My 16 focus is like that and it’s a pain in the behind. I have to change my oil every month so it definitely gets annoying.

I believe on the maverick. It has the plastic air damn in the front below the bumper. Then the nasty foam board under the engine bay. Typically with a flap for drain plugs and filters.

this is the underside of the Bronco sport.
Foam with a plastic door.

Here’s what I would do. Get a 4x6 1/16th steel plate. Remove all the plastic and foam. Cut/bend the steel. Cut and install a door. BOOM. Steel splash plate. (Only $100 and 60lbs or less)

all that is missing is a welcome mat for a rodent. Would get a nice surprise when you started the Maverick after several days camping in the wilderness.
If something wanted to get up into the engine compartment . They will do it. Unless your vehicle is in a close garage .

Someone needs to do a DIY access door kit for the factory cover. It’s ridiculous to expect Walmart or Jiffy Lube to remove an access panel with 15+ bolts and not F-something up, in the process.

If you bring it to Walmart or Jiffylube then you deserve to get something F-up!

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, the internet always tells you what you should be doing right and what your doing wrong… I’m too old to be crawling under vehicles, so I’m likely to take it to my local Walmart Service Center, the same place I buy my car batteries and tires. It’s the least expensive synthetic oil change around and they have more cameras watching my vehicle and the Tech’s, than a damn bank. If something goes wrong, Walmart’s isn’t going to risk bad press for employee negligence. I trust them more with my vehicle than my local dealerships.

I read somewhere that Wally World and a WHOLE lot of other people like a Jiffy Lube use re conditioned oil. Wonder if there's any truth to that

Would be easy to just cut a hole to fit one of these and not have to bother with removing the cover every time.
