Dearborn, Michigan – Ford has recalled more than 60,000 of its Ranger and Bronco models because the windscreens are improperly attached. The recall notice cites the urethane adhesive bonding between the car body and the windscreen as potentially being inadequate.
The affected vehicles were manufactured between 8 December 2021 and 12 April 2022. The notice states that in the event of a crash, the windscreen may not stay adequately retained. The cars could also have increased wind noise or develop leaks.
Ford will remove and reinstall any windscreens that are found to be incorrectly installed, using adequate urethane adhesive and primer. The company believes this issue will affect about 15% of the 39,000 Bronco SUVs and 24,000 Ranger pickups that are being recalled.
