2009 F150: window seal corroding

I've got an '09 extended cab. has 18,000kms . On the outside of the drivers side back window, there seal at the bottom of the window. The rubber seal at the bottom where 2 pieces butt together it is corroding underneath the seal at the joint and there is a white residue that is running down the door.

anyone else had this problem?
I'll see if I can snap a shot later.

Sounds like the trim they've used on the Rangers for years.

It's rare that a truck that new would exhibit it, but from experience I can tell you that the rubber seal is actually a formed piece of steel coated with rubber on both sides.

If the rubber didn't make a perfect seal around the bottom half of the steel, you will have rust and corrosion very quickly. If you have a good relationship with your dealer, you should be able to get them to replace the trim piece without too much trouble. If they won't, I'd bite the bullet and buy a new one before it screwed up the paint. If memory serves they were about $50 apiece for the Ranger, should be a little less for the 150.
