This article supersedes TSB 06-18-2 to update the vehicle model years, vehicle application and parts information.

ISSUE:

Some 2005-2008 F-Super Duty, 2005 Excursion, 2003-2007 Expedition and 2007 Navigator vehicles may exhibit outer window molding weather strip assembly warping around the lower front window channel. The condition may be described as a 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 therefore scratching the side-window glass.

ACTION:

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

SERVICE PROCEDURE

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


    Figure 1 – Article 07-10-5




    Figure 2 – Article 07-10-5

  4. Raise the side door glass completely.
  5. Measure the distance from inboard surface of the door molding flange to outboard surface of the window glass (Figure 2). Distance from flange to glass should be between 5/8-3/4″ (16-19 mm) for F-Super Duty and Excursion, and 3/16-7/16″ (5-11 mm) for Expedition and Navigator.


    Figure 3 – Article 07-10-5

  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 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.
