Foam Seal Between Dash and Windshield Sliding Outon Ford Edge

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.

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.

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...

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!

Foam started coming up from windshield / dash area. Took to Ford Dealer and was told I need to have windshield removed then replaced back with new foam (there was not a recall on this)....cost of repair, around $250.00. There is no wind sound or leakage, so I told them forget it and started shoving the foam back in place as it came up.

foam was pushing out had window and foam replace
The foam strip between the windshield and the dashboard has bulged and started popping out. It looks bad, and I can't push it back in without making it even worse. Also, my horn has lost some of its power recently, changed pitch a bit, and only sounds from the passenger side. A few months after buying the vehicle late last year (~52,000 miles), I had the notorious, dreaded PCM issue, and was grateful that I found the service bulletin online.
I asked the dealer about it and they said "it doesn't pay to fix it." I haven't gone further, but I intend to insist to the manager that they at least give me a quote and let me decide.

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.

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?
