Ford Edge White powder blows out of vents
Ford Edge Problem
Average Mileage: 51,320 mi (18,100 mi - 92,000 mi)
Ford knows about this problem that started with the 2007 vehicles. (Edge, Mariner, Escape, Escape Hybrid, among others). See their problem report TSB 09-21-6. The real problem is that it is not a recall and it is a major nuisance and health hazard. If you turn your fans on all the way you are covered by a cloud of white dust. The repair is extremely labor intensive, to be done by an expert, and costly! I'm waitin for a class action lawsuit. (If you still have your warranty it is covered, I believe.)
This happened since we purchased it.

Terrible smell coming from vents with ac or heat, not all the time. White sparkling powder comes out and covers the dash. Smells horrible and yet mechanic can find nothing wrong. Checked among other things, if the ac was not draining and put in a new air filter, but problem still continues. Won't buy another Ford. If they won't admit their problem, then I won't buy another car from them.

We have the same problem as well as no heat. I quit buying Fords' years ago. But my wife had to have an Edge. Took the car back to the dealer and guess what? Same old Ford plenty of excuses but not fixes.
