2010 Ford f150 supercrew power rear sliding window pass side only, cracking upon turning on rear defroster after a few minutes. Temperature 15 degrees within a few minutes of leaving a store parking lot and now driving down the highway a few miles I heard a loud bang ( many others posted say it sounds like a 22 caliber shot gun ) I looked around and saw the rear pass sliding window shattered but still intact. This is the first time I had to use the rear defroster as it was snowing sleeting outside. I have had this truck for 2 years and never had to use it. Now when I get home I decide to google search this and couldn't believe how common this is. Turn out there is a problem and Ford will not make it right unless you are very lucky and persistent. The heating element gets so hot that it shatters the glass. They claim glass is not covered. Its not the glass, its the heating element. I called 3 local dealers today and 2 of the three said they knew about this but Ford wont offer compensation. I was told to call the insurance and file a claim. I also called Ford customer care center and told them what I had learned and it was all over the Ford forums and the internet. Same scenario for all of us. I am just glad that I didn't have a child in the rear pass seat and had this happen or had the glass shatter all over the child. So now I have to pay a $500. 00 deductible and file a claim with my insurance carrier. Worse yet I was told today that no windows were available for 10 days. Hmm makes you wonder why?.

Rear passenger window regulator stopped working and window fell into door. Had my daughter done this while driving she would have been scared by the loud popping noise and potentially crashed into object injuring herself and or others. This is a common problem and Ford needs to recall the trucks with the plastic parts and falty mechanism. Search the web and there are hundreds of vehicles with the same issue . Years 2004-2006. Ford needs to recall!!.

I have already replaced 2 window regulators front and back passenger now my front driver is about to go out each time it cost almost $300. 00 to fix it. I cannot afford this and feel it is a Ford problem of defects. And should be paid at their expense. As I seen many complaints from Ford customers of this problem. Please help Ford customer resolve and fix this. Thanks [xxxx] information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6).

I own a 2004 Ford f150 4-door p/u. Over the past several years three of the four window in my Ford f150 have fallin at different times ( window regulator ). Ford refused to pay for the repair and I was told they know about the problem, however, were not going to issue a recall. This week my 4th window regulator broke causing the window to fall again while in a shopping center parking lot. I advised Ford this was unsafe and how can anyone secure a vehicle with faulty window regulators. Someone could lose control of their vehicle if this occurs during driving and this issue should be addressed.

Got into vehicle, started, and immediately loud popping sounds came from under the engine, and worse when put into reverse. Luckily had 2 hobby mechanics, that I work with, come take a look. They immediately determined that one of my spark plugs had backed-out. They took the cover off and determined it was the 1st spark plug, and luckily the threads were in good shape. Put spark plug back in, and vehicle started fine after that. I travel 45 miles one way to/from work. If this happens again, could leave me stranded. 2nd luck, no repair cost. I can only imagine what the dealer would have charged. In addition, 2 weeks later, I had the 3rd (2 previous were in front right & rear driver window) out of 4 door windows fall into the door. This time it was the driver's front door - regulator assembly. Loud bang before they fell. Scared me - thought someone had thrown a large rock at my vehicle. This is the 3rd to fail within 8 months (last 2 on the same day in July 2012). Total repair cost on windows was $900. 00. There is still no recall on the spark plug problem, and the regulator assembly problems, although hundreds, if not thousands, have had the same problem. I contacted Ford for complaint & reimbursement, and received no response. It's very obvious, it's time to do something about this!.

Two weeks prior to now I had to replace the whole track assembly for the window on the driver's side. Driving down the highway, the window just fell into the door panel. This could of resulted in a serious accident because of the window just falling! two days ago, the same thing happened to the passenger side window. The windows going down when you are not expecting it is scary. These windows unexpectedly going down can result in an accident. I feel that there is an engineering defect in these window systems. I have both original Ford parts that came out of the door panels. I called Ford, but they told me they can not do anything about this.

I was leaving an atm (it was raining), I rolled up the drivers window. When the window reached the top the window fell (free fall was more like it) in to the door. Once I removed the door panel and inspected the window parts I found the regulator failed/broke. We are thankful the window did not break and injure us.

Driving my son home from school, heard a loud pop in the driver's side door, which made me jerk the wheel (glad I wasn't going very fast), then the driver's side window fell into the frame. Dealership claims broken window regulator. Went online and found hundreds of complaints of the same. Called Ford complaint number; they very kindly told me there was nothing they could do at this time. Too many complaints of the same issue to not be on recall list.

Driving to church on may 6th, 2012 @ 0900 a. M. On the interstate traveling @ 70 mph. I lowered the window about an inch. When I pressed the button to raise the window a loud pop occurred and the window dropped into the door-well. It scared everyone in the truck. It was a sunny day. Potential for loss of life is present with this issue. Inclement weather or blinding debris within the cab could raise the potential for loss of life. Please petition Ford motor company for a recall on this potentially life threatening issue.

For the third time, I have had a door window drop from a fully closed position to a fully open position. In doing reseach on the issue, I find that this is a common problem with 2004 - 2005 model year f150 crew cabs.

I have read many complaints just like mine, Ford told some people they had way too many complaints to do anything about a recall on this. Last year the drivers window popped and the window dropped inside the door I went to Ford bought the cable and regulator and had a window company replace it. 2 weeks ago same thing on the passengers front window, next day the passengers back window dropped while I was in my house, the drivers back window is the only one left. This truck is a 2005 the parts are not that old.

The contact owns a 2005 Ford F-150. The contact stated that the front driver side window malfunctioned and the window could not be opened. The contact took the vehicle to a local mechanic where the mechanic replaced the window regulator motor. The repair did not remedy the issue so the contact took the vehicle back to the mechanic for a diagnostic test. The test results displayed that the dm module was defective. The contact did not call the manufacturer. The failure mileage was 80,690.

I have had 2 of my window regulators go out and I have been doing some research and found out that this is a common problem. Something needs to be done about this it causes a safety risk since I have kids and when these windows shatter the glass gets everywhere. I have noticed that the same slider on both regulators broke in the same place. Please do something about this before someone's kid or my kids get hurt. Thank you.

The first regulator that broke was on the drivers side. My wife and I came home in her car, my truck was parked in the driveway and we noticed the window on the drivers side was down and on inspection the glass was down inside the door. The next time was this Sunday, March 1, 2012, when we got home from church the same thing happened except it was the passenger side. ## VIN passed ## Ford f150 2005 ##.

The passenger in my vehicle tried rolling up the window while at a stoplight and it would not go up. The window switch will work to roll the window down but not to roll it up. After approximately 11 months the drivers side window is doing the same thing, will go down but not up. With the window stuck in the down position, my vehicle is now exposed to the elements, rain particularly, and I fear the water from the rain is going to affect the rest of my door switches, and possibly ruin the leather seats and the power functions for my seats as well. It is a distraction and a hazard to have to drive with the window down constantly.

I have a Ford f150 since new and continue to have problems with my windows - this is a 2004 fx4 model crew cab / with p/w . I have installed three power window switches now and today had my right rear window fall open when driving - with a very loud crash / bang noise - I thought someone hit me in the next lane and almost swerved to avoid a empty lane / I could have hit someone else or caused injury / this problem is very common I am finding out and yet Ford wont help. . . . If someone dies then maybe. . . .

Failure Date: 12/10/2010

We owned a 2005 f150 vehicle. We purchase the vehicle 2004 and the drivers side window's regulated failed a loud sound was heard and the window came down by itself. Today 12/10/2010 the passenger side front window did the same thing. We are now out of warranty and with no money to pay for the window. There has being so many complains in the internet about this particular issue that if the research is done you will find this is a defect since before the 2005 were made. I don't believe that the consumer has to pay for a manufacture defect of this kind.
