ISSUE:

Some 2005-2006 F-Super Duty and 2005 Excursion vehicles may exhibit the outer window beltline molding 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 and the window glass. This may result in dirt and debris collecting between the molding and the glass and scratching the side-window glass.

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

SERVICE PROCEDURE

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

  5. Measure distance from inboard surface of the door beltline molding flange to outboard surface of the window glass (Figure 2). Distance from flange to glass should be between 5/8-3/4″ (15.30-18.30 mm).
