2005 Ford Mustang ProblemsMustang Convertibles: Rear Window Glass Comes Loose
The adhesive holding the glass convertible window gives out and the window delaminates from the outer convertible shell.

It worked great, but long term effectiveness is still unknown.

4.0L V6 engines may develop a buzzing type noise from the upper engine area at about 1900 RPM, under light acceleration. Our technicians tell us this can be caused by loose ignition coil bracket bolts. Coil bracket bolts should be checked for the correct torque before further diagnoses is performed.
