Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Really inconvenient, ugly problem to fix. Found several other occurrences mentioned in the Ford Explorer forum. The dealer wants a small fortune to start and won't quote a "not to exceed" price, to make the repair. Apparently the glue that Ford uses to fix the window to the operating arm gets old and lets go. The two part urethane glue needed for the fix is not a hardware store item. Access to work is limited.
