OEM Linking Pin: Ford/Lincoln Fixed Glass Replacement Requirements

OEM Linking Pin: Ford/Lincoln Fixed Glass Replacement Requirements

We have been receiving many questions on the Ford/Lincoln workshop manual requirement to replace fixed glass. So, we asked Ford/Lincoln for clarification and they have now updated their repair manuals. Let’s take a look.

Ford added the following statement to the Workshop manual: “NOTE: If any of the following conditions exist, the fixed glass must be discarded. A new fixed glass is required.

  • The fixed glass is the windshield glass and equipped with a camera bracket.
  • The fixed glass is equipped with adhesive mouldings.

NOTE: Fixed glass may have locating pins that vary in location. It may be necessary to cut these pins with a utility knife.”

Glass with an adhesive molding may include the windshield, back glass, or other fixed glass. This information has been updated in vehicle-specific workshop manuals.
