wait I'm looking at this and I still don't get it, how is this better than the original ones? flatter?
Yeah, flatter and no chew marks from the prior removal. It’s the little things in life.

Swiss Army knife can opener attachment. I removed all the clips in a few minutes by prying the curved edge under the clip, levering up the clip a bit, then pulling it all of the way out. Only slight deformation on the clip, and I didn't have to buy a special tool.

Love it! Did you turn it upside down after removing or trim the bottom tabs?

Some creative solutions here to pull the fasteners.

But, for tool geeks, one of the best parts of any project is the excuse to read about and buy a new tool :)

Just curious, for those that have taken it out, what happens if water leaks through the holes? I took mine out but I'm worried that it I put ice or hose it down, the water will leak into sensitive components.

And on Amazon suggested under that was these, which I will probably get. (haven't measured yet to be sure they are correct dimension).

Removal was about 15 minutes with screwdriver and pliers, and I reinserted them after remolding the few screw pieces that bent slightly.

I was familiar with these fasteners as they are the same used for the hatch divider covering the battery compartment on our jetskies, which I had to remove 1 week ago.

The plastic pins and holes holding the frunk dividers in place were never watertight. If you remove the dividers and reinstall the pushpins, the enclosure will still not be watertight. I wouldn't worry about it too much, it's hopefully been considered in its engineering.

That's exactly why I've purchased the official after-market Mustang Mach-e Frunk Koi Pond liner.

There are openings to the road below, I wouldn't worry too much about those small holes. I put the fasteners back in mine, just because it looks better.

I don't think you have to worry about it. I've had the storage bin out and gave it a good look. Nothing different than any other engine compartment that I have seen with watertight connections on all the plugs. If water were to get through the holes of the divider, it certainly would'nt be much and only probably a slow leak or drip. It will run straight down the side of the bin and drip underneath it. As Jonathan said above, I am sure engineering considered this.

Oh wow, good picture. Nice to see what's in there.

Looks almost like a flux capacitor right in the middle. 😄

I'm pretty sure there is one in the rear too! Sure are a lot of hoses.

Here are some pics of the open road down under (both sides, the openings are about a hundred (thousand?) times larger than the area of the fastener holes).

I have it open while doing Mark's subwoofer project, back to work!
