    Reproduction Elongated Headlight Cover or Eyelid Adjustment Bolts for the 1967 and 1968 Mercury Cougar

    This bolt is what adjusts your headlamp cover (eyelid) height. The originals were 2" and our bolts are 2 1/4" long. Many Cougar owners are unaware they can rid themselves of that droopy eye look (misaligned grille) by simply installing our new hard rubber pads on the heads of these bolts and adjusting them. Four adjusting bolts are used on every 1967 - 1968 Cougar per but only two of these custom made bolts are needed to correct sagging as the other two adjuster bolts act as stops when the eyelids are open. To adjust your eyelids, open your hood and look for the protruding small end of this bolt in the center, upper backside of the eyelid assembly. Place a 7/32" socket and turn clockwise until you achieve the desired eyelid to grille alignment. If there are not enough threads left on the bolt to achieve this then a pair of our extra long bolts and hard rubber bumpers will do the trick. Sometimes only the bumpers are needed depending on how much your grille has relaxed over the years. 

    Remember that over time, your old adjusting bolts will wear down and loosen up to the point that you can turn them by hand. These replacements do not come with a position locking nut, so they're designed to be very snug. Plan on using a wrench or ratchet to install them.

    Sold as a pair.

    Replaces Ford part number 381573-S

    After 15 years, my GT-E's headlight door trim wasn't aligned any longer.

    The original bolts were maxed out and I decided to try these.

    The original bolts were easy to get out ,the new ones not so easy to get in but doable if you have small hands or recruit your wife : )

    Very nice to be able to adjust the headlight bars correctly and have an actual thread or two showing .

    Like many other Cougars, my headlight doors had the droopy look. I tried shimming and making "stops" to prevent with no luck. These bolts were not difficult to install and did the trick. Install and adjustment took a matter of minutes. I am glad that WCCC took the initiative to "re-engineer" this bolt to address an issue that all Cougars have or will have. I would recommend the new rubber stops as well and do it all at once and be done with it.

    I ordered these after seeing another Cougar with them at a car show I was attending. Saw the grill, asked how he kept it from 'drooping', was shown these and knew I must order them! I already have the high strength bumpers so between the two of them my grill should be pretty :)
