Adjustment Bolt - Grille / Headlight Eyelid Door - Elongated - PAIR - Repro ~ 1967 - 1968 Mercury Cougar (30838)

5.00 stars, based on 8 reviews
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...

Getting the old ones out wasn't hard. Making sure you align the news ones can be a little more tricky. I cross threaded one and snapped off the small hex adjustment end. Once the replacement is correctly installed, they should both look appropriate.

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 :)

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 .

Seem to be great quality, very effective, and easy to install. The hard part was getting my old ones un-seized and removed. Be aware, if you upgrade your actuators using the WCCC Electric Conversion Kit, as I later did, you will not "Need" these.

Little bit of a pain to install, but allows the headlight doors to finally be aligned correctly!
