Front window scratches

Anyone else have front window scratches really bad from the molding? Mine are HORRIBLE. Like when i roll the windows up and down they screech like nails on a chalkboard and you can visibly see the scratches which are more noticible near the bottom but go all the wya up the window. Anyways I took my truck to my dealer earlier this summer and asked if they could do anything for me since there's a TSB out about the molding scratchign the windows.

My answer was the since I was out of my 36k warranty that they could only replace it for me if it were a recall and not a TSB. They said it would be atleast $700 for the new windows and molding, plus I would have to get them re-tinted. Anyone else go through an ordeal like this or actually get yours replaced in or out of 36k warranty?

I've thought about writing a letter to ford seeing if they could do anything for me as I have been a loyal customer my whole life. It kinda sucks to have a $50K truck that has the steering wheel peeling and the windows screeching and scratched to pieces. And it's not like I offroad or anything, it's a pavement princess.

I've got some scratches on mine from going up and down, but nothing like what your describing. When the window is down snap the felt seal with your fingers to get the dust and debris off of it and that should stop the noise. It did mine.

I talked to her and she said that since it is a TSB it would only be covered if I was in my 36,000 mile warranty. I have it on BOTH my front windows and it's REAL bad. you can see scratches going all the way up the window and I hate it, it looks horrible.

Was this something fixed on later model 6.4's? I get a sound every now and then but I just clean the felt with my fingers and all is good. No scratches yet. Knock on wood.

You have to keep your window moldings super clean or they will do this. The tsb basically increases the gap to help this from happening again.

My truck has them as well . I was told by my glass guy there is nothing you can do but replace em once the damage is done . My truck's moldings just fell apart and that is what caused mine . I replaced them all last week since I had them out anyway .
