Interior carpet melting/smoking on 2008 F 450
My father in-law has a 2008 F 450 36,100 miles and while pulling his horse trailer out of town a few weeks ago. When he was about 100 miles outside of town he noticed that the interior carpet began to smoke like it was going to catch on fire. The locations was between the pasnger seet and drivers seat, closer to the passenger side. It looks like someone took a toarch and tried to melt through the cab floor while they were driving down the road? They poored water on the carpet to keep it from catching on fire. He took it into the dealer and they said they had no idea what could have caused this to happen. They suggested he contact his insurance company. Mel Hamilton Ford dealer in Wichita is not helping them on this issue, he asked me to see if anyone else out thier has had a similar problem?
