Having a hard time to have replaced windshield

Hello everyone!
I have a F250 truck and the windshield moulding has dried up,it leakes inside.I live in a rural area of Fl,(Okeechobee),I went to the Ford dealer and I was told that they do not take care of it.They suggested a auto glass place but they also refused to deal with it.I was told of another
place with no luck.I agree that is a 2001 bu I hate to junk it,the truck is in good running condition,and how about if I want to keep it as an antique?
I have run out of alternatives.........any suggestions will be much appreciated........araucano.

You are being messed with.

Any auto glass place should be able to fix it.

2001 is not that old.

Check with your insurance company to see if they have any references.

You should not have any issues with a replacement. Any auto glass shop should do it. You could check with your insurance company for names in your area.

That's bogus.
Your truck has the windshield glued in with urethane rubber, which doesn't really "dry out".
More than likely the urethane has separated from the glass or the pinch weld around the glass frame.
In reality, it will cost about the same to have a brand new glass installed as it would to have the old glass removed and resealed.

There is a diaper load of glass shops in your area:

I just had a windshield replaced on my 1985 GMC Jimmy. The local auto glass shop ordered the windshield and had it the next day. They never blinked an eye about the age of the vehicle.

Thumbs up A reply to leaking windshield.......

Hello everyone!
Just as some of you suggested,the insurance company which replaced the windshield was contacted,they came over and used some type of calking and said that if it continued leaking they will remove the windshield,it worked and if needed in the future,they will return.
Thank you so very much for your interest in replying with
the useful information,Godbless you all!!!!!!!

I am glad to hear that it worked out-

Did you get the name of what they used? Can you post the name of the product if you did?
