FRONT EXTERIOR DOOR GLASS WEATHERSTRIP DEFORMED OR LIFTING - BUILT ON OR BEFORE 5/7/2010
Some 2008-2010 Escape and Mariner vehicles built on or before 5/7/2010 may exhibit the front exterior door glass weatherstrip deformed and/or lifting up from the door flange. This may be due to a lack of retention between the door glass weatherstrip and flange.
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.
1. Remove affected front exterior door glass weatherstrip. Reference Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 501-11 Glass, Frames, and Mechanisms - Exploded View.
2. Apply a strip of 3M‘Safety-Walk‘ Slip-Resistant General Purpose Tapes, or similar (obtained locally) to the outer flange surface at the center of the door. Cut grip tape to approximately 2.5" X .5" (64 mm X 13 mm).
