After going through an car wash I parked the car. The temperature was -10
degrees C (about 14 F. about an hour later the left rear vent window
I presume this was due to frozen water around the window not alowing the
glass to contract as it cooled.
Is this a known problem with this car?
Would this be covered under warrant?
Any ideas would be welcome.
Might be covered under a "customer satisfaction" type of approach.
Talk to Ford before contacting your dealer.
Good Luck (your dealers first response will likely be that you must
have done something wrong) Trying to open it while it was frozen shut
Have a Happy New Year
PS if you have no joy try contacting a wrecker. a place like apple
auto glass should be able to install it in 1/2 hour or so.
You have it backwards. The glass is not contracting much. It's the ice
that is expanding a lot. In the absence of many folks having this
problem, you would have to consider it a freak occurrence. Ford is not
going to cover ice damage.
PS. Washing the car in sub freezing weather is not a great idea. Many
things can be damaged or cause temporary trouble.
