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.

Passenger side electric window slid down inside the door. This has already been replaced once and the driver side window did the same & also had to be replaced.

3 out of 4 of my windows fell into the door frame. Known faulty regulator (Ford knows this part is faulty) broke. Two of the regulators broke while vehicle was in operation.

The contact owns a 2004 Ford F150. The contact stated that the two rear windows and the driver side windows all fell down into the door frame. The dealer stated that the regulator failed. The contact went to two different dealers and each one repaired one window at the contact's expense. The dealers stated that they would reimburse her, but the contact has not yet received any compensation. The dealers further stated that they would not pay for the third window at all, although the contact believes this is their responsibility. There are no recalls on these windows. The failure mileage was 58,000.

I went to put up the passenger side rear window, heard a snap, then the window sank into the door. This is a safety issue, both potentially for theft and for injury. I am no longer covered under warranty, for this issue. There are many Ford F150 owners experiencing the same issue, on multiple windows and is an ongoing issue. I am having the window regulator replaced at significant expense. I've owned vehicles 10 years and never had this problem, and yes, they were Ford too.

In April 2008 the right rear window fell due to a broken regulator and just today the driver window did the same. Two months from each other is not right two years maybe but not too months. I would like something done immediately.

- Roseville, CA, USA

problem #1

F-150 8-cyl

  • 45,210 miles
Three incidents with the power windows have occurred in the past two years. Windows have fallen and won't roll back up. The regulators seems to keep breaking with normal operation. The first one to go was the rear driverside door, then 6 months later, the front drivers side door, then 4 months later the front passengers side door.

- Rancho Cucamonga, CA, USA
