The glass is at risk of shattering when the lift gate's lift cylinder detaches from the cylinder ball stud bracket orrotates out of position because of improper torque. These problems happen because: 1. There's a poor bond between the bracket and the glass due to improper application of the urethane adhesive. 2. There's a sudden loss of clamp load due to an improperly cured EPDM washer on the bracket orthe clamp's torque being too low. Ford started acknowledging these issues in 2001 when reports of loose lift gate strut brackets started rolling in. But glass continued to shatter even after Ford re-torqued the bolts. For a while they assumed there was a glass processing error in a small batch of vehicles. It wasn't until later that they realized the real culprit was adhesion failure between the bracket and the glass.
Ford opened an internal investigation in March 2004, but by that time the problem was also floating around the Office of Defects Investigations (ODI) at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). A federal preliminary investigation opened in June 2004. ODI wanted to look into allegations of rear lift gate glass assembly failureafter being made aware of 62 reports of failures. During their investigation, NHTSA documented 5,000 complaints of breaking glass resulting in 165 reports of injuries.
For owners of the Escape and Mountaineer, good news came in February 2011 when the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced an investigation into this shattering glass problem. The government agency received 18 complaints, which is a far cry from the hundreds we've seen on CarComplaints.com. No recall has been issued yet, but a Ford spokesman told the Detroit News that they were "aware of the investigation." Aware is great, fixing the problem is better.
