Cracked Sunroof Glass

Recommended Posts

I just joined the group whose sunroof glass cracked, 2016 Edge SEL.

I keep the interior shade closed during the summer to keep the sun from heating the interior. Last week, I opened it and voila, two cracks going from front to back.

I took it to a friend who owns a body repair shop, he ordered the OEM glass from a Ford dealer, and it's replaced. The glass coverage on my insurance covered the whole cost.

Sorry to hear that.

Is the replacement glass tempered glass or laminated?

I don't know, I looked for markings on the glass but didn't see any.

On the glass, center of the rear edge from the inside it can be seen. It is supposed to readable from the outside, so on the inside the text will be mirrored (flipped). Attached is what mine states (2016 original), "laminated safety glass".

 

Newer models stared using "Tempered glass".

Thanks a lot, that's a simple fix, just rotate and mirror the image and it becomes easily readable.
