This article supersedes TSB 06-12-6 to update the vehicle line coverage.

ISSUE:

Some 2005-2007 F-Super Duty, 2005 Excursion and 2003-2006 Expedition vehicles may exhibit the outer window beltline molding weather strip assembly warping around the lower window channel. The condition may be described as warped or loose outer window molding. There may be a pucker or gap between the window beltline molding weather strip assembly and the window glass. This may result in dirt and debris collecting between the molding and the glass and scratching the side-window glass.

ACTION:

Use the following Service Procedure to replace the outer window beltline molding weather strip assembly and adjust the molding flange.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

  1. Lower the side door window completely.
  2. Remove the outside mirror.
  3. Remove the outer beltline molding weather strip assembly by lifting it up away from the flange (Figure 1 and 2).


    Figure 1 – Article 06-18-2




    Figure 2 – Article 06-18-2

  4. Raise the side door glass completely.
  5. Measure the distance from inboard surface of the door beltline molding flange to outboard surface of the window glass (Figure 3). Distance from flange to glass should be between 5/8-3/4″ (16-19 mm) for F-Super Duty and Excursion, and 1/4-3/8″ (6-9 mm) for Expedition.


    Figure 3 – Article 06-18-2

  6. Lower glass completely.
  7. Adjust the door molding flange to meet the 5/8-3/4″ (16-19 mm) dimension. Do not adjust flange more than 3/4″ (19 mm) away from the glass.
  8. Install a new lower window beltline molding weather strip assembly.
  9. Reinstall mirror.
  10. If the side door glass has been scratched, replace the glass. Refer to Workshop Manual, Section 501-11.
