|bvlpxm||It's a super easy fix. The panel comes out easy , strip off the old and use boy glue gun and attach speaker fabric , felt, or sceen. I used some old speaker cover fabric I had already. 1 piece cut to size 10 minute job better than oem. This problem and other know. Design flaws Ford sucks about covering out of warranty. Rep who contacted me from this board from Ford was useless|

dealer denied - here's how to fix
My dealer in Spartanburg SC turned down my request as out of warranty on my 2012 w/46,000 miles even though i provided them with the TSB. Found this u Tube video on how to do. Looks like maybe a 5-10 minute job. Now just deciding what material to use.
here's the video

|Guilty Trace||This happened to me too. After being in Alaska for a few years, I got stationed in Biloxi and, after the first summer here, that foam has all but disintegrated. All that sunlight beaming through non-tinted windows and this hunk of whatever-the-hell fell to pieces. So, no--you're not alone.|

|OC 2012Focus||Just got mine in the mail that I ordered from Ebay with free shipping. Multiple online dealers wanted $10-15 for the part plus $30 shipping but I was able to find it much cheaper. Does anyone have any good tips on how to install it? I saw someone posted that they used RTV.|

Yeah, a poor quality foam slipped through testing/quality control.
TSB on replacing it under warranty, cheap official stick on replacement for those beyond warranty.
I'm also one for usually running with a window cracked, my model works best with the driver's partially up even on a nice day for reduced buffeting (about 1/4 to 1/3rd) - sunroof open or not.

No, it's part of the flow through ventilation system for the car.
Air leaves through vent holes in the trunk area that originally came in through the ventilation system in front. Flowing past the rear window helps keep that clear, same setup in my '04 BTW.
