Sunroof Exploded

Was cruising yesterday 65 along with a/c on and heard a loud pop like a tire blew but checked around no dice or sound of a shredded tire. Thought maybe I had hit something in front but didn't see any damage. Thought I was in the clear until today I found the problem...

The sunroof ....:doh: Anyone else even see this before? Possible cabin pressure??? The dealer said they have never seen the sunroof blow out but plenty of side and rear windows due to door slamming.

Cabin pressure????

I can't imagine you wouldn't notice the pressure it would require to crack the sunroof like that.

That's weird.

I know quite a few people with sunroof's and never have never seen anything like that happen before. Hopefully you get it fixed and it won't happen again.

WOW, thats nuts!! Have you done anything to the vents behind the back seats that vent the cabin pressure? Though... it would take a LOT to break that glass. Not even sure if it's possible, especially just going down the road. No door slamming or anything.

No haven't touched a thing on the vents. Never slam it.

I am unsure. The service rep who helped me also had to bring out everybody else to ask if they have ever seen this before etc & what happened. It didnt look like this gigantic hole until they started to mess with it / remove it i guess.

Said they had to submit pictures to ford to see what to do next
