my ford said that the recall is specifically for the side doors and the hatch is not effected. I sprayed some lube (like wd40) in the latch and will see how it goes over the next few weeks as it was an intermittent issue I was having

I would look at the hatch bumper. The way you describe it, you need to push in the hatch so it can open. The bumper are extended too much maybe. Can you take a picture ? I'll compare with mine (and my car is fine).

No. Look on the left side and right side. It's a hard rubber piece. Ill take a picture later today and show it to you.

So I've noticed water is settling on the rocker plate in between the seals at the bottom of the LH rear door after a rain storm.

I don't remember this happening before the latch recall was performed. I'm assuming the vapor barrier has been disturbed in the door.

Now I just have to decide if I want to follow up with the retailer, or look into it myself...

I've always had this problem with my rear doors, long before I had the latches replaced.
