I need a plastic square thingy that clips onto our tailgates. It rubs against the rubber stop on the spare tire carrier. I don't have a clue if it has a name haha. I've been trying to find one online with no success. Any ideas?

Thanks

The label in the diagram is wrong. This type was used from '90-96.
Service replacement EB tire cover: F4TZ-9845026-AAC
This style of spare mount requires a locking lug key (part of #6) as shown here

ISSUE: High latching and operating efforts of the swing-away spare tire carrier may be caused by a lack of lubrication on the latch and striker assemblies.

SERVICE PROCEDURE
1. Make sure the spare tire carrier is latched. Both the primary and secondary latches must be engaged.

4. Close the carrier.
* Both the primary and secondary positions must be latched.
* If the carrier does not latch, re-adjust the tailgate striker as required.

I think it is the number 8 (the numbers are hard to read) - the spare wheel scuff pad. Well atleast I know what to call it now... thanks man. Any ideas where to get one? I'm going to take a wild guess and say ford won't have any, but if they do I know what to call it now!

ok, You can go to the direct link at Steve's page @ http://www.supermotors.net/registry/media/253955
then Right Click on the diagram to enlarge it

that is merely a piece of nylon or polyester reinforced tape; glue it back on or use a piece of rubber/tire patch.
