    Rear window glass explode on Edge 2016

    I received today a Recall letter from Ford code 17B39 which explain what was the problem of the sudent exploding of the rear glass In Canada they put a lot of salt on road and the melting snow or ice with the salt can enter in the rear wiper motor and it become very hot The rear window is at external temperature below zero and the motor is hot result that the rear glass broke with the difference of temperature between both sides The repair is to remove the rear wiper motor, clean it and the axle to remove all trace of salt, install a new bushing in the rear window with silicon grease reinstall the motor and with the silicon grease and the new bushing the salt and water will no longer enter in the motor

    It seems that is a Ford problem, depending Edge serial number they have model A or Model B rear windows installed , one of the model is defective and broke without reason, There is a info to dealer to replace all the rear windows which are broken under waranty, they are so many broken that the new rear windows with out the defect are backordered for a minimum of 3 months
