    They're some sort of weird fastener, not a real thread on it. I think they only turn 180 degrees or so between lock and unlock.

    I think you can get the fasteners from Ford. What I'd do is probably cobble up something using 1/4" bolts (7/16's head).

    I had to zip tie mine up. Would guess Ford has them and the rubber spacer that goes with it.

    Very common issue, especially when not doing your own fluid changes, LOL. Some have even replaced the fasteners with assorted bolts/screws & rubber gaskets.
