Glue Gripes: Ford recalls 2020-21 F-Series vehicles for windshield adhesion

Oakville, Ontario — Ford has issued a recall for nearly 7,000 F-Series vehicles in Canada due to inadequate windshield adhesion.

The automaker said the affected vehicles do not comply with federal safety standards; the front windshields are inadequately bonded to the vehicle body structure. In the event of a collision, the windshield may not properly stay in place, increasing the risk for injury.

The recall affects 6,986 F-Series vehicles in Canada, 79,017 vehicles in the U.S. and 1,347 in Mexico, including 2021 Ford F-150 vehicles built at the Dearborn, Michigan Truck Plant from Oct. 27, 2020 to Feb. 3, 2021, and 2021-21 Ford Super Duty vehicles built at Kentucky Truck Plant from Oct. 13, 2020 to Jan. 23, 2021.

Ford says it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition. Owner notifications will begin the week of April 6. Dealers will remove and reinstall the windshield using standard service procedures.
