1997 ford f-250ld rear window leaks. you guys have already looked into the problem but i think it really needs to be taken care of. i and many others that i have talked to with the sliding rear window have had this problem and it is destroying the head lights in these trucks plus other damage to the truck and what's in it. this happens anytime it rains hard or soft and when i wash the truck. i have a friend that works as a mechanic for ford and he said he has seen a lot of these problems. ford does not really have a good answer for the problem and when they do fix it, it does not last for long. i have no problem with ford trucks and would buy them again and i think that they need to find how to fix the problem and fix all the trucks that have this problems. thank you for any help. *la

tl* - the contact called about the 2003 ford explorer xlt. the contact stated that the air bag light stayed on, and when it was on, the airbag deactivated which was a safety problem. it happened all the time. the fuses have been changed under warranty, and now that it was not under warranty, it was no longer repaired free of charge. the contact stated that she was told by one service station that it was standard for the fuses to blow because of the fuse box location. another service station told the contact that this was not true that the fuse box was to high in the car for pebbles to be able to get into the fuse box. also, the windshield wipers won't turn off by them selves, even when the keys were out of the ignition. the contact stated that the airbag light and the door ajar light were consistently on. moreover, the electronic seat would not move forward or backward. she had the seat repaired twice and it failed again. finally, contact stated that the vehicle was making a knocking noise in the front and rear of the vehicle's undercarriage. the vehicle clanked stopping, turning to go forward, or just sitting still. the first time the contact took the vehicle for repair she was told by the repair shop that it was the driver's seat that was causing the clanking noise, and the second time she was told that the noise was not something they could identify because during diagnostic testing it did not show a specific failure code. the current and failure mileage were both 114000.*ak
