Report: Foam Seal Between Dash and Windshield Sliding Out
Ford Edge Problem
Average Mileage: 48,466 mi (26,000 mi - 64,000 mi)
Bad adhesive can cause the foam seal between the dash and windshield to slide out. To correct, the windshield must be removed, and then remove and replace the foam with new parts.
My foam seal is coming out and I called the local ford dealership and they said they just removed it drom the dash, this would leave a gap where items could fall into such as pencils, pens and more as I do have childern. 2008 Edge limited

Dealer said they could jam it back down (did that once didn't work). Or said they could pull it out seeing as it was only decorative not functional. Not once did they offer to replace it for the right fix.

My husband noticed the foam seal between the dash and windshield sliding out and he just pushed it back in. I then noticed the same on the drivers side . I also pushed gently on the windshield and noticed it moves, like its not tight. Dont know if this is related or not, but I also hear like cracking sounds, pops. I always figured it was the plastic dash warming/cooling and expanding/contracting?? I havent noticed any leaks or anything, but my car stays in garage so...

Just had a replacement winsheild put in because of accident. It was fine before replacement, went to ford they just pushed it back in and said it really wasn't needed so it could be pulled out or pushed back in. This doesnt makes since especially since my insurance just paid to put it in a few months back. No problems before why now?

Seal between windshield and dash apparently slides in and out depending on the temperature... Looks awful! Very poor design - should be a free fix for Edge owner's from Ford - it appears there are quite a few out there with the same problem.

Seal was sticking out in a couple of places. I took it in to local dealership and the technician removed it.
The service advisor stated there was a service bulletin on this and that it called for removal.
Seems odd to me. I assume it is put there for a reason!

The foam seal started sliding up where the windshield meets the dash some time ago - and now it is completely out. The service guy initially said this type of problem is "normal wear and tear" on the vehicle and I was out of warranty... To fix it, they said they have to remove the windshield, remove the seal and replace it with a silicone seal instead. They're doing the job today and after a lengthy call with Ford corporate, I will be paying to cover about 1/2 of this cost. I've never seen this problem come up on any other vehicles, nor would I expect to. In addition, I'm not happy about having to remove/replace the windshield - fingers crossed that this does not create additional problems.
