2021 King Ranch Tremor (on order)
Just noticed my roof molding came loose or popped out, looks like the back window needs to be removed to reinstall, called my dealer and they said they would order one and the body shop would install it. So far this and left headlight was replaced as it was not sealed properly, only have 1300 miles on the Tremor.

Never seen fords with so many issues. This doesn’t inspire confidence

Yeah I’m considering trading in my 2020 and ordering a 2022 but I don’t have a single issue yet with my current ride and now I’m a bit nervous about getting a truck with quality issues.
 
Buddy's 2017 F250 had the same issue. Not new, but you'd think quality engineering could get a fix done in 4 years...
 
I noticed this on mine 21 a couple of weeks after I picked it up. Talk about an idiotic design. It’s simply poor engineering. If you look at that trim piece it is basically a molded 3/4 plastic circle, NOT a closed circle. It’s installed by that being laid down and then a rivet placed inside of it. Why not just make it a closed loop. They can’t get to mine until Jan when there will be a loaner available. The service rep said it has to go to the glass shop first to have the back window pulled, then to the body shop to have it riveted down. Then back to the glass shop for the window install. DFD!!!!!!!
 
Good evening, every manufacturing company in the world is working with new inexperience employees or are under staff or both. This are the times we live in today it’s not only auto makers companys that make other products are having the same challenges. Someone in quality inspection missed that at Ford and the dealer missed it during incoming inspection too. I hope the dealer takes care of it soon so you can continue to enjoy your Tremor. Nice color mine is white too.
 
This is all too common problem with these aluminum cab F150 & Super Duty. Stupid design. Mine did the same thing first hot summer day it sat in the sun all day. Good news a little black RTV will fix it (it's been over a year since I did mine including going through the carwash). The only way to have it fix "correctly" is to remove the back glass (hell no). Love to know what the engineers were thinking with this one.
 
I’d be curious to know if they continued their engineering prowess on the 2022s. Anyone able to confirm?
 
my 2022, on the same side, same spot was broken on Day 1, with 14 miles on the odo. They were able to fix it without removing the rear glass though.
How did you fix it?

I am going to pick up my truck in the sun and go over it like a freak. Too bad it will likely be cold AF that day.

Yes…..how did they fix it? I really don’t want them taking out my backing window and running a rivet gun on the body liked they mentioned.

So they likely trimmed off the extra tab and glued it to the cab?
