Default Tint Scratches... New tint lasts about 2 Days

Had the felt replaced, replaced the tint. Waited 5 days to lower the windows, abd the passenger side already has scratches in the EXACT same places as before.

But FOMOCO insists they never heard of this? Bad fuel pumps, bad rear diffs, and now this? F them... I should have gone with the Charger.

Yep, read it... that's how I found out I needed the sh!tty Ford material replaced.

This is more than just felt IMO. The scratches are all in the same spots as they were before I had the windoes redone, right by the inside door handle. This is a design flaw with the door/handle/windows.

well i'm afraid to get my windows tinted now. Does the window run between two rollers that could scratch the tint? I think i'll take my whole door panel off to see just what could scratch the tint and then go from there.

I would call your dealer and ask if they will tint the windows, and what kind of warranty they will have.

ive had my tint for 3 months. i didnt get the felt kit and i dont have any scratches. this might be a pain in the *** but maybe there is somthing inside your door scratching the tint seeing how its in the same spot, i would recomend pulling a door panel and taking a look inside, might find somthing is loose or misaligned.

I agree...you should have bought a charger. Its not too late to trade and I hear theres a charger forum.

It's too common of a problem to be limited to just my car. That's why there's a sticky thread on this. The scratches are happening in about the same spots on BOTH doors on BOTH sets of tint.

My dealer acted like I was speaking Greek when I asked them about it, yet Phil Long Ford in Denver supposedly acknowledges that this is an issue.

Yeah it is actually, since I went about $5K upside down to buy the Mustang.

I bet Charger owners can at least raise and lower windows without worrying how much more damage they're going to cause.

There's a reason FOMOCO was just rated LAST in quality. Or did you miss that?

Dude it is a 20$ fix to buy felt. So now you dog on a company because your mod is scratched???? See ya then and no FORD is not last in quality. They had a 23.% gain in quality......If you didn't have tints could you still roll your windows up and down? Is is a huge problem I wish this was the biggest problem I had in life

I am looking at retinting my windows for the third time before I put it away for the winter due to one scratch on each side.

Dude, you must have missed where I posted that I already replaced the felt. You're right about their quality though, all of those recalls are my imagination.

Maybe it was customer sat that they were last in?

Biggest problem in life? No... But I would think that a $25K purchase wouldn't have such a stupid problem.

No, but I will insist on the dealer replacing felt when they retint.

Im just agreeing with you. If you dislike your Mustang so much, you should trade it in on a Charger...Or is it also Fords fult your upside down on what you owe?
Dont come to a Mustang forum to bitch about how poor the quality is on your Mustang. Trust me. No one here wants to hear it.

I'd say the fact that the MODERATORS here felt (No pun intended) that this is a big enough issue to make a sticky thread about it, says you are 100% wrong when it comes to the concerns regarding scratched tint/windows.
