The Doors Are Cracking At The Window. This Is Very Common In All The 97-01 F150’s I’ve Looked At. ford Knows About It But Does Not Want To Cover It If It’s Out Of Warranty Even Though It Is A Design Defect, And It Weakens The Structure Causing A Safety Problem. I’ve Also Noticed The Welds Holding The Roof To The Side Panels Are Cracking Down The Entire Length Of The Cab Roof. This Is Not An Isolated Incident Either. This Also Has To Weaken The Structure Causing A Safety Problem. It Is Now Quite Apparent Why The Insurance Industry’s Crash Test Did So Much Damage To The Cab Of The F150. I Hope You Can Investigate This, And Put Pressure On ford To Admit There Is A Problem, And Hopefully Come Up With A Repair. Thank You. *ak

The Windshield On My 1998 F150 ford Pickup Has Leaked For Years And Now The Water Has Corroded The Gem Module To The Point Where I Am Experiencing Unwanted Electrical Activity When The Car Is Unattended And Worried That It Could Possibly Cause A Fire Or Cause A Dangerous Life Threatening Situation While I Am Driving The Truck. I Have Contacted The Local ford Dealer And They At First Wouldn’t Even Acknowledge The Problem Until I Mentioned The ford Bulletin ##15773. Then They Said That The Only Thing They Would Do Is Repair The Problem For $1,300 Dollars. I Researched The Issue And It Is Clear That ford Manufactured A Faulty Windshield And That It Is The Root Cause Of This Dangerous Situation. *tr
