Getting in the car today I noticed wear on the softop. It is bad enough that the driver side has rubbed through the top down to the rubber below

It appears as though the top is rubbing on itself, or something when it is all the way down. I say that because when I put it back it didn't appear to touch anything. It also appears on both sides, though the driver side has worn through and the passenger has not yet.

Will be reporting this to my dealer on Monday.

Update 8/1

Took a minute today to do some troubleshooting. It looks like when the top is folded back it can fold under the frame and rub against a piece of plastic. I noticed it folded differently yesterday so not sure what causes it to fold under and rub versus not. Definitely check your top when folding it back.

Pictures of the issue.

Here’s to hoping the aftermarket can correct this, I’m thinking Ford is probably more concerned with the MIC top at the moment and will have the dealers solution be a patch kit, like the ones my Mom would sow on the knees of my jeans in the 80’s

If they give you a new top I hope they install it perfectly straight so it doesn’t wear paint off the roll bars like some have experienced

How often are you putting it up/down? Just wondering if this is just something it's doing on it's own, or if it can at least be prolonged by, you know, never, ever, ever, ever putting the top down...

Gosh! It's like every week now something wrong with the new Bronco is being reported. If it was happening out of warranty it would be a bank account buster. I'm going to hold off buying one until all the kinks are worked out. If I have to wait till the 2023 model, so be it.
