Ford Edge Foam Seal Between Dash and Windshield Sliding Out

Ford Edge Problem

Model Years Affected: 2007, 2008

Average Mileage: 58,687 mi (14,000 mi - 157,000 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.

    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.
