Just mentioning it here because we are all same build week. My bronco has that airbag recall. I'm starting to think the Snow's going to drop before my bronco does. 😕

Hi, what exactly is a TSB? My Bronco is whistling and I am on the forums searching to figure out what the heck is going on. I am wondering if I take it to my dealer - will they even be able to determine the cause? Wondering if I need to submit some kind of complaint to help others get theirs fixed too.
A tsb (or technical service bulletin) sometimes listed as a 'communication' is an acknowledgement of an issue with a plan of action to address. The whistling you hear is either from your grill - Ford is developing (or may already have developed) a new gasket that will replace the original that will eliminate the whistling. The fix is supposed to be available October '21 though it is uncertain whether that means beginning, middle, end - or actually October '22. The other possibility is the mirror housing lacking a proper seal on one of the side view mirrors. (or both).
Good luck.

Most likely the mirrors or the grill

Where is the whistling coming from? Most likely the roof or windows. If it's a soft top and you've taken it back/off already, make sure the seal is good. Sometimes the weather seal needs to be moved by hand so it doesn't get stuck on the wire that actuate the second back position for the roof.

By the Dirt Mountain tracker it would seem all of us except for one. It is getting old because we are seeing recently manufactured units with MIC getting delivered. I guess they have to keep the line moving forward. I'm going to guess the week before and of Thanksgiving.

Yeah they should have kept making soft tops and pushed out dm broncos in like a week instead of 3 months. This is stupid

I see 2 August 10 Blend dates on the tracker received their built notification marked. There is now some light at the end of this tunnel.

Ford's tracker stopped working for me. I'm going to take that as a good sign. ...grasping at straws here...

I hope you get it soon. My July 22 Blend was built/shipped October 7/8, and I took delivery Oct 21. Based on that, you'll be second week of November! Put another way, i received it 3 months after blend date, exactly!

No errors, but when I click Accept & Track nothing happens anymore.

That makes me feel a little better, my pizza tracker does the same. When I use the backdoor link for raw data, it comes up as an error 😰
