I’m looking for a replacement dash bezel with openings for electric 4x4 switch and rear defroster for my 93 Bronco. (Ford part # F4TZ98044D70A). I have tried all the catalogs, eBay and countless internet searches (Green Ford, etc.). It’s amazing that there is an endless supply of the non-rear defroster bezels, which also fit the F150, but looking at comments on this site from 10-15 years ago they were tough to find back then. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I do believe you are looking for the proverbial holy grail....

I think a lot of the Bronco owners that need a new bezel just use the standard bezel without the defrost cutout and cut it out themselves.

I have seen a few in junkyards but they are always trashed out.

They're really hard to find. I managed to trade some fuel injectors for one. What I came up with before finding mine was buying one for a f150 and relocating or cutting a hole for for the switch.

Yo NH93Bronco,
Welcome!
For a YARD SEARCH on-line, I use;
Hollander Quality Replacement Parts | Find Used Auto Parts | Online Locator
A yard that uses Hollander Interchange can search other yards and have it shipped including some Canadian yards.
"...For over eighty years, Hollander has been making the best tool for fast, interchangeable part matches. The new Edition Hollander Interchange contains more interchangeable options than ever before.
The Hollander Interchange provides auto recyclers and auto collectors, rebuilders, and others with the easiest and most comprehensive solution for identifying interchangeable auto parts..." See their yard Directory @ Seller Directory | Used Auto Parts | Hollanderparts
Can select a certain part.
If a specific part isn't listed, search again for the next higher assembly, such as in this instance, Search for:

1993 >Ford > Bronco > Interior > Dash Bezel > Alternate Dash Bezel

I'll take some next time I'm at the shop and PM them to you, not sure if we should be selling stuff here. Give me a day or two to take some more pics, I have it on Craiglist, but you have first option on it.

I went to the shop today expecting to take some more detailed pictures for you, and the bezel is gone, along with several grey interior trim pieces. Spoke with my buddy and he thinks his son may have thrown the box away the other day when he went to pick up some boxes of trash.
Sorry, I thought I had you covered.
Guess I need to remove it and some other stuff from Craiglist.....

You won't find a used one unless it's from a far northern state as they are so brittle sneezing wrong will shatter the screw holes or trim clips.

Buy a new OEM Ford F-series one and just push the defrost button back in the dash or remove it. They are still sold new just no defrost hole as OEM and OE. eBay is cheapest for new.

To @cobrajoe, hopefully it wasn't topper trim between both of those parts you could of gotten half a grand on ebay.
