Mondeo - Rear window shattering


Standard Member
I have a Mondeo estate on an 08 plate and twice within a year the rear window has shattered. There is no sign of it being hit by anything and has only happened in the winter Jan 11 and then again last week!
Has anybody else had a similar problem or can give me a ideas as to what the problem is?
Hope somebody can help?

Have you contacted Ford UK to ask about this? One would suggest the screen was not inserted properly, but two suggests there is stress on the screen because the chassis opening is not quite right and the screen has to be stressed to get it to fit

Different car,but this happened to our old VW Passat a few years ago.

The chap who fitted the replacement told us it was not uncommon on estates,and said it was due to stones getting thrown up and sucked into the airflow.....

I have no idea of whether or not this is true or simply an old windscreen fitter's tale,but who knows...
