Compatible front end parts for an '02 Taurus

Damn, it took 30 years of driving to cause my first accident, and on Friday the damn 13th. Did a low speed rear end into the back of a lifted truck and got into it's trailer receiver. The only place it made contact with was at the very front center of the hood close to where it latches. Unfortunately the impact was enough that there's a longitudinal hump in the middle of the hood now, bowed 6 inches on each side above the quarter panels, which weren't involved at all thank God. Both my headlights are cracked at the top, but not because they got hit; I think it was because the hood and it's latch was pushed back during the collision possibly deforming the support structure, causing the to separate. The hood is lifted up about 3 inches above each headlight and when looking in at the support material just behind each headlight, one side shows cracks and the other cracks and about a 1/2 gap in the material. Can't tell but it may resemble fiberglass, not really sure? My best guess is that the whole front bumper is gonna have to come off and that entire front support piece be replaced. Any advice on how hard this can be? I do a lot of my own work but I really don't want to be getting into this especially with the weather getting so bad now.


When I go junkyard shopping for parts, what year Tauruses are compatible with my '02?

go to oreilly https://www.oreillyauto.com find the part then scroll down to compatibility and it will show what other cars use the same part.

Mercury Sable is mostly the same as Ford Taurus.

Forgive me if I am wrong but in this thread you state you have been driving thirty years and in another thread you started you indicated you live with your mom which I would expect to mean you are a very young person.

Too many mods to list. Too awesome to sell.

My brother lives with my mom and he's 63 and well, she's 91.

I would rather have a tool I don't need, than need a tool I don't have.
