We asked Ford for clarification on what caused this issue, whether it was an installation error or defective materials. A Ford representative replied with this statement:​
"This safety compliance recall was not an installation issue. A non-conforming batch of the paint supplier's flow additive within the clearcoat, and one specific primer, resulted in reduced bonding performance to the urethane adhesive used to attach the windshield to the vehicle body structure."
The recall affects 87,350 trucks in North America, 79,017 of which were sold in the US. Luckily, it seems like the fix for this issue involves the dealer simply removing and reinstalling the windshield using standard service procedures.​
If you are the owner of one of the affected trucks, you can expect to get a notice from Ford starting the week of April 6, 2021. Ford claims that no injuries have been reported as a result of this defect.​

FORD MOTOR COMPANY ISSUES SAFETY COMPLIANCE AND SAFETY RECALLS IN NORTH AMERICA

Feb 22, 2021 | DEARBORN, Mich.

DEARBORN, Mich., Feb. 22, 2021 – Ford Motor Company is issuing safety compliance and safety recalls in North America.

Safety compliance recall for select 2020-21 Ford F-Series vehicles for windshield adhesion
Affected vehicles do not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards because the front windshields are inadequately bonded to the vehicle body structure. In the event of a crash, the windshield may not adequately stay in place, which may increase the risk of occupant injury.

This action affects 79,017 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories, 6,986 in Canada and 1,347 in Mexico, including:
  • 2021 Ford F-150 vehicles built at Dearborn Truck Plant from Oct. 27, 2020, to Feb. 3, 2021
  • 2020-21 Ford Super Duty vehicles built at Kentucky Truck Plant from Oct. 13, 2020, to Jan. 23, 2021
Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition.

Owner notifications will begin the week of April 6. Dealers will remove and reinstall the windshield using standard service procedures. The Ford reference number for this recall is 21C06.

My assumption would be any truck build after 3 Feb is being corrected on the assembly line.

Those trucks build between those dates & siting - awaiting transportation - I think Ford would correct before shipping since it's safety releated. - They may go ahead ship out & let the dealerships deal with it.

I'm a little surprised that Ford is waiting until April 6 to send out notification to dealerships - wonder why so long? My only guess is - It may required some type of new seal, adhesive or both.

My truck falls into that timeframe, yet still is at the plant. Just another thing to hold up shipment. Can't catch a break here haha, well at least they are catching these things BEFORE being shipped...hopefully.

Mr Admin,
Can you tell us if its a product issue, (bad/defective adhesive, glass etc) or is it a design issue (not ENOUGH sealant etc) ???
Thank you.

I noticed yesterday when washing the truck that there was an unusual splattering of adhesive around edge of the windshield.
Getting a windshield replaced sucks and sometimes causes leaking issues and technology issues, sensors etc etc.
Sucks. But at least it will all be under warranty. If I get the notice (build date 1/22) so likely in it, I’m waiting for summer time when the fix, parts and weather are lined up.

6-month check-up is going to take a bit longer. I have another recall for Heated Mirror and Integrated Trailer Relay Module (21B08). Anyone else have that alert?

Well, I guess I will be waiting for my reflash recall for this one to show as well. Won't this catch all of the powerboosts built so far?

So my production date is 2/2, shipped date was 2/17 and my vehicle is currently In Transit (dealer ETA 3/11), so really curious what status i'm currently in... Did they use the time between 2/2 and 2/17 to address this before it shipped? So many unknowns...

If you have ESP plan with first day rental, does that qualify you for a car while they do this ?

My truck was built 01/28/21, so I'm going to wait this one out a bit. Dealerships can replace windshields and recalibrate the driver assistance systems on other trucks before touching mine. :)
