Nasty Black Goo falling out of Seat Backs
I have a 2004 F150 Lariat which I purchased in 2004. I ordered it the way I wanted and up until recently, she has been kept in immaculate condition.
Recently pieces of black nasty sticky foam like material has been falling out of the back of the front driver seat. It is making a huge mess on the carpet and if you try to pick it up, it feels like grease but the appearance is a foam like substance. When I reached up under the inside of the seat back I found big chunks of this stuff that just fell into my hands.
I did a preliminary search and found a few instances of this occurring with other owners but it’s not been very common. Hennessy Ford here in Chamblee, Georgia looked at it today and they had never seen anything like this. I have scheduled to take it back on Thursday so they can tear into the seat to see exactly what it is. I will keep you posted.
I also called ford today at 1-800-312-3673 to report the problem and to see if Ford has a record of this issue. They have not but they have started an investigation to see if it is possible to have been reported elsewhere.
I would like to first, ask if anyone else has experienced this issue and if so, what did they find out.
Second, if anyone is, or has, experienced this issue have them call Ford at again 1-800-312-3673 to report this issue. If Ford finds this issue to be the result of defected part(s) of the seat they will create a recall, but to be honest I don’t see that happening.
