At issue, the windshields may become detached from the truck if it is involved in a collision. Inadequate adhesion between the glass windshield and the body of the vehicle is to blame. If that happens, there would be an increased risk of injury during a crash. The issue fails to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.
Specifically, the pickup trucks subject to the recall were produced in from Oct. 27, 2020 to Feb. 3, 2021 in Dearborn, Michigan. Additionally, the Super Duty models were built between Oct. 13, 2020 and Jan. 23, 2021 in Kentucky.
The problem resulted from the use of a non-conforming batch of the paint supplier’s flow additive within the clearcoat as well as one specific primer.
Basically, the urethane adhesive used to attach the windshield to the vehicle’s body is defective.
To fix the problem, owners may take their pickup truck to the dealership where service will remove and reinstall the windshield using standard service procedures.
Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) is based in Dearborn, Michigan and has not received any reports about injuries as a result of this defect.
