I Was Told Of A Door Cracking Problem, I Asked The Local Service Rep About It, He Told Me That There Was A Cracking Problem And That ford Was Fixing Those Vehicles Within Warranty, But They Haven’t Decided On A Fix For Out Of Warranty Vehicles. If The Doors Are Weak Enough To Crack Form Routine Driving, Are They Strong Enough For Occupant Protection? Especially If Both Doors Are Cracked And Form The Evidence Of Rusting, At Least For Some Time..

I Am An Active Daily Member & So Far I Have About 50 Emails/people Compiled That Have These Cracks Developing. This Is Definitely A Mfg. Defect. I Also Was At Cover ford In Austin Tx. On Sat. Having Warr. Work Done & 11 Of The f-150‘s On The Used Lot Had Cracked Doors Also. From 97-99 Models ! The Service Mgr. Said What I Expected, “never Heard/seen That Before”. We Are Getting “no Help From ford” On This. Just That Typical Computer Generated Reply. Here Is The Address Of A Site That Shows The Exact Crack That We All Are Getting. This Can Be A Structural Safety Issue If It Gets Alot Worse. Please Help Us… Http://arrowaranch.com/truck/crack.html Thank You, We’ll Be Looking Forward To Your Reply. Sean Steele

The Doors (driver & Passenger) Have Stress Cracks Next To The Windows. We Have Spoke To Bison ford Regarding The Matter. We Were Informed, By Bison ford, That Since We Are Passed Our Warrant (3years/36000) That ford Motor Company Agreed To Pay $500.00 And Bison ford Agreed To Pay 10%, Leaving The Remainder To The Consumer. The Cost To Repair Just One Door Is $486.63. Thus Leaving $375.93 That The Consumer Would Have To Pay, If Both Door Were Cracked Like Our’s. This Price Is Just To Weld The Cracks And Repaint. We Feel That This Is A Manufacture’s Defect And That The Consumer Should Not Have To Pay To Have The Vehicle Repaired Properly. I Have A Real Concern For The Integrity Of The Door If We Were Involved In A Side Collision. I Fear That The Door/window Would Not Hold Up And Possibly Cause Serious Injury. Bob Has Looked At 10 To 15 (f150 1997 & 1998) And Has Found That All But One Was Had Crack(s). While We Were In Colorado Recently We Went To The ford Dealership There And Were Suprised That They Did Not Know About These Stress Cracks. They Had 6 Vehicles On Their Lot And Only One Of They Didn’t Have The Cracks. Thank You In Advance For Your Consideration Of This Matter. Helen Morin

About 3 Months Ago I Was Informed That 1997 And 1998 ford F150 And F250 Where Having Problems With Door Cracks About 1.5 To 2 Inches Up From The Bottom Of The Window On The Rear Pillar Of Both The Driver And Passenger Side Doors. This Is Due To The Vibration Of The Upper Door In The Slipstream Created When The Trucks Are Being Driven. The Point Of The Cracking Is Where The Top Of A Curve Strenghtens The Door And Stiffens The Door So That When The Top Of The Door Is Vibrating The Stresses Concentrate At This Point And Cause The Door Pillar To Crack. I Have Personally Found These Cracks On Over 70 1997 And 1998 f-150‘s And Some 1997 F-250’s. Although This Is Not Immediately A Hazard This Will Eventually Compromise The Strenght Of The Door Pillar Due To Corrosion. I Have Contacted ford And They Will Not Do Anything About This As My Truck And The Truck Of Everyone Else I’ve Talked To Is Out Of Warranty. I Belive This Is A Problem That Should Be Addressed Before It Becomes A Major Hazard To The Occupants Or Other Drivers On Our Nations Highways. *ak

There Is A Crack In The Driver-side Door That Is Coming From The Inside Of The Frame Next To The Window And Is Stretching Down The Side Of The Door Towards The Rear Of The Truck. I Have Contacted Smith ford And ford Motor Company More Than 10 Times Each. They Each Want To Tell Me To Call The Other. The Crack Is Going To Begin Rusting Soon. I Am Afraid That The Driver Side Window May Shatter As A Result Of This Crack. I Have Seen Several Other Trucks With The Same Crack. On Some Of These Trucks, The Crack Is Folding In On Itself. It Puts More Pressure Against The Window. It Is My Fear That This Will Happen To My Truck While I Am Driving Down The Road And The Window Will Shatter. Any Help You Provide Would Be Greatly Appreciated. Thanks. *ak

Both Passenger Doors Have Structural Cracks On Doors. This Defect Was Caused By Using No Support On The Doors While In The Assembly Line. As The Cracks Get Bigger The Door Frame Will Lose Its Integrety And If I’m Ever Involved In Any Accidents My Family And I Will Probably Be Hurt Or Kill Seriously. I Contacted ford Company And The Will Replace The Doors But Not Mine Because My Warranty Ran Out. I Feel This Is Not Fair Because It Is A Major Manufacturing Defect That Should Of Been Corrected Along Time Ago. I I’m Not The Only One With This Problem.
