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.

F-150 XLT 5.4L

Apparently this is a very common on this year and model. Just to a google search and you will see. Its a tough fix for a DIYer and a expensive one if your not.

F-150 XL 4.2L V6

  • Manual transmission
  • 70,000 miles

My Ford F-150 Extended cab truck's back window on passenger side had an annoying and stinky leak. The water would drip onto the seat and smell up the cab. Didn't know it when I bought it used at about 60,000 miles. The dealer had put deoderizer (new car smell) stuff masking the stink. After that wore off, I realized water was the culperate and found the leak.

After having a mobile glass repair man fix, haven't had a problem since. You must remove the glass and replace the black sticky stuff (butel?). Don't try to patch, it just prolongs the problem.
