Ford is recalling select Ford F-Series vehicles for windshield adhesion issues that could increase the risk of occupant injury, the automaker said.
The affected 2020 and 2021 model year vehicles do not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards because the front windshields are not adequately bonded to the vehicle body structure, Ford said. In the event of a crash, the windshield may not adequately stay in place.
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.
