Ford Issues Sunroof Recall

Ford recently issued a recall on more than 5,000 of its Transit Connect vans made from 2014 to 2017 with panoramic sunroofs. The auto manufacturer stated the sunroofs could leak or even detach from the vans, in a press release.

According to Ford, the problem is the bond between the panoramic roof and the body of the Transit Connect vehicle. The recall includes 5,088 Transit Connects in the U.S. and 45 in Canada, according to the company’s release.

The recalled vans were manufactured July 17, 2014, to October 1, 2016. Auto glass shops working on the impacted vehicles can assure their customers that their sunroof glass will be removed, cleaned and reinstalled at no cost to them. Ford did not provide the recall’s start date.

Auto glass shops who’s customers have additional questions about the recall can contact Ford’s customer service center at 866-436-7332. Ford’s recall reference number is 20S2.

    My 2017 F-150 sunroof became stuck open and I water flood the interior and pour out of the overhead lighting control box. I called to schedule a repair and had to wait 5 days, through hurricane Zeta, with more flooding before I could get it in the shop. There is a service bulletin issues for this problem and a F-150 forum with data to support around 52% of trucks with this roof have this problem but Ford acts like they’ve never heard of it before. It’s not only damaged my interior and cause me many cold days of driving with the roof open, but potentially damaged the interior electronics and costs a fortune to repair.

    My sunroof would go up but 80% of the time wouldn’t slide back. I brought it to a ford dealer and they messed with it and then told me it would cost over $4200 to fix. I said not now. That’s way too much money. ( they had to fix it about 2 years ago for the same reason) but when I went to pick it up the sunroof popped and snapped and started to go up. ( remember when I brought it there that part worked fine) it wouldn’t go completely up and then would not shut at all so I gave it back to them and they worked on it for approximately 1 hour and said don’t try opening it anymore. . Well I didn’t but three days later it rained and now it leaks
