Chronology :

May – June 2024
On May 9, 2024, an issue pertaining to windshield adhesion on certain F-150 vehicles was brought to Ford’s Critical Concerns Review Group (CCRG) for review. On May 2, 2024, personnel at Ford’s Kansas City Assembly Plant (KCAP) identified visible urethane sealer on the interior passenger side A-pillar that was off location relative to the windshield and flange. Upon further investigation, Ford discovered that variations in the manufacturing fixture process, used to position the windshield before applying the urethane, could lead to the possibility of insufficient adhesion between the windshield and the vehicle’s structure.

To verify the potential for improper windshield adhesion along the A-pillar, Ford conducted vehicle windshield glass cut-out inspections at Ford’s Kansas City Assembly Plant across the suspect vehicle build timeframe.

Windshield air leakage testing and water leak audits were also performed on units within the suspect population. Photos from an overhead camera Artificial Intelligence (AI) pilot program were utilized to further identify windshields that were improperly positioned during the urethane application.

Ford determined that suspect vehicles with this potential condition may not conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 212 Windshield mounting.

As of June 18, 2024, Ford is not aware of any warranty, field reports, or customer complaints related to this concern.

On June 21, 2024, Ford’s Field Review Committee reviewed the concern and approved a field action.

Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition.
