"Mystery door" to the left of the steering column on '19 Titanium?...

Recommended Posts

In my '16 Titanium, there was a little "drawer" to the left of the steering column in which you could store small items but in my new '19, the door is still there (see picture below) but it won't open and there doesn't seem to be any drawer to pull out… :( There is a door allright but it doesn't seem to be "openable" even if I pull on it. I don't want to pull too hard and risk breaking it off… but my main question is this:  Does someone know what's behind this non-removeable door? :headscratch:

It is supposed to give access to the fuse panel, but like the 2015+ models, fuse access from there is very limited. I also remember reading a member here who got a drawer from a previous model and installed instead of this cover. Just couldn't find that post. I think it was 2018 when they replaced the drawer with the cover.

Along with one horn (and who knows what else) Ford eliminated the drawer and slapped an access cover (just pull to remove) in that space at some point in the Gen2 run (I'll go with Omar's 2018).  The good news is that opening is completely unchanged year to year so, yep, a drawer from a '15-'17 you can probably find at an auto wrecking yard will pop right in. 

Cheers!

Yeah but will the drawer still fit in there?…especially with that fuse panel?

It's hard to imagine Ford redesigning the wiring harness to move the fuse box but stranger things have happened I guess.  The photo below shows what's inside the opening with my drawer removed.  Compare it to later models with the cover to determine whether changes have been made  Keep in mind the drawer slopes down when it's closed, it isn't aimed straight back.

IIRC the BCM is behind the door somewhere....
