The center console has a latch that will snap if too much weight is placed on the console lid.
Replacement is easy.
Part number is P6DZ-54061A34-A (Latch)
If you can change a light bulb you can make this repair - unless you you are a service manager at a Ford dealership. Mine at Northtown Ford in Decatur wanted to use a regular screwdriver and it took him 1/2 hour. He would not let me do it for him since "customers can not use tools or visit the service area for insurance reasons."
I tend to require these often so I buy a few at a time, I don't know when they may quit making them.
You use the same T-10 driver to also adjust your headlights so if you have to buy one it has may uses.
