DEARBORN, Mich., Dec. 2, 2016 – Ford Motor Company is issuing two safety recalls in North America. Details are as follows:
Ford issues safety recall for certain 2013-16 Ford Fusion and 2013-15 Lincoln MKZ vehicles to insulate seat belt anchor pretensioner cables
Ford is issuing a safety recall for approximately 650,000 2013-16 Ford Fusion and 2013-15 Lincoln MKZ vehicles to insulate front driver and passenger seat belt anchor pretensioners to prevent cable separation in a crash. In the affected vehicles, increased temperatures generated during deployment of the seat belt anchor pretensioner could cause pretensioner cables to separate, which may inadequately restrain an occupant in a crash, increasing risk of injury.
Ford is aware of two accidents and two injuries associated with this issue.
Affected vehicles include:
There are approximately 680,872 vehicles affected, including 602,739 in the United States, 35,614 in Canada, 8,665 in Mexico and 653 in federalized territories. The Ford reference number for this recall is 16S42.
Dealers will inject a conformal coating into the front driver and passenger seat belt anchor pretensioner to protect the cables from increased temperatures generated during deployment at no cost to the customer.
Ford issues safety recall for certain 2017 Ford Fusion vehicles to replace second-row left-rear seat back frame
Ford is issuing a safety recall for approximately 27 2017 Ford Fusion vehicles to replace the second-row left-rear seat back frame, which may have been built with improperly welded pivot pins. In the affected vehicles, seat backs with pivot pins that were improperly welded may not adequately retain cargo in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.
Affected vehicles include certain 2017 Ford Fusion vehicles built at Hermosillo Assembly Plant, Sept. 27, 2016 to Sept. 28, 2016.
There are approximately 27 vehicles affected, including 25 in the United States and two in Canada. The Ford reference number for this recall is 16S43.
