Front end design features
Ford Figo The newly designed front end structure of this model consists mainly of the plastic front end module and the sheet steel crash element.
Plastic front end module
Ford Figo Body Service Manual The plastic front end module acts among other things as a mounting for various components like the radiator, radiator fan and hood lock. This design allows repairs to be performed easily and economically, as the complete front end module can be detached together with the flanged-on assemblies. In areas subjected to more severe loads the plastic front end module is additionally reinforced with high-resistance foam.
The sheet steel crash element consists of a crossmember to which two crash boxes are welded. The crash element absorbs the majority of the impact energy in a crash. Flange plates on the longitudinal members allow the bolted crash element to be easily replaced. Towing eye mounting
Two additional designated yield points in the front part of the longitudinal members absorb further crash energy. 2-part frame construction in the deformation area - increased ease of repair. Laser butt weld seam directly behind the crash area - optional sectional replacement. In the front area of the longitudinal members (deformation area) there are no inward reinforcements - increased ease of repair.
The plastic bumper is positioned relative to the fenders with two plastic lugs on each side of the vehicle and bolted in place. The fog lamps are integrated in the bumper, and the ventilation grille and the front apron are clipped onto the bumper.
Rear longitudinal member
In more serious rear impacts the ends of the rear longitudinal members are also deformed in addition to the crossmember. Designated yield points in this area allow the residual energy to be dissipated in a controlled manner and prevent follow-on damage on the body structure. Sectional replacements are possible in the area of the designated yield points.
As already featured on some models of Ford, this model also features three elements on each side of the vehicle to reduce the transmission of airborne noise to the body. If any body repairs are carried out in these areas then the NVH elements must also be reinstalled or renewed.

Attached parts Doors
The dividable door hinges are attached with two bolts each to the body and the door. Adjustment options are provided via the oversized bores in the halves of the hinge, allowing adjustments to be performed without removing trim panels. The central electrical power supply to the doors is provided on the front doors via a round bayonet connector and on the rear doors via a rectangular clip connector.
Ford Figo Body Repair Manual The doors are only hung by the hinge halves on pivot pins and can be simply unhinged when open. The doors are locked in the closed position via a mechanical locking mechanism which is integrated into the hinge half on the body side. Sealing for the doors is provided in the form of a surrounding rubber seal on the body side.
Due to the reinforcement of the panel areas (grey areas), there are limited options for performing dent removal techniques without damaging the paintwork. Surrounding seals and sealing bead in the clinched flange area. Windshield washer nozzles (1) integrated into the hood. Mechanical hood prop (2) on the right-hand side of the vehicle.
