Ford Issues Two Safety Recalls and a Safety Compliance Recall in North America

DEARBORN, Mich., Sept. 27, 2017 – Ford Motor Company is issuing two safety recalls and a safety compliance recall in North America. Details are as follows:

2015 Ford F-650 and F-750 vehicles

  • Ford is issuing a safety recall for approximately 77 2015 Ford F-650 and F-750 vehicles that may contain castellated nuts at the tie rod ends that were torqued below the minimum torque specification.
  • In the affected vehicles, the castellated nuts and cotter pins for the tie rod on the front axle may not have been torqued to the minimum torque specification. This may cause the tie rod to become loose in the steer axle and disconnect from the steering system which may cause the driver to lose the ability to steer the passenger side wheel at low speeds, increasing the risk of a crash.
  • Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.
  • Affected vehicles include 2015 F-650 and F-750 vehicles built at Escobedo Assembly Plant, March 4, 2015 to April 27, 2015.
  • The recall involves approximately 77 vehicles in the United States. The Ford reference number for this recall is 17S30.
  • Dealers will inspect, properly torque and replace the cotter pins on the front axle.

 

2018 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCab non-moonroof vehicles

  • Ford is issuing a safety recall for approximately 42 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCab non-moonroof vehicles that may be missing rivets in the roof structure.
  • In affected vehicles, structural braces in the roof may be missing rivets in their attachment to the roof rail structure. Vehicles with missing roof brace rivets may have reduced structural integrity, potentially increasing the risk of injury in a rollover.
  • Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.
  • Affected vehicles include the 2018 F-150 Raptor SuperCab without moonroofs built at Dearborn Assembly Plant, June 8, 2017 to Aug. 21, 2017.
  • The recall involves approximately 42 vehicles in North America, including 39 in the United States and three in Canada. The Ford reference number for this recall is 17S29.
  • Dealers will install rivets for the roof brace attachments.

 

2017 Ford F-150 and Super Duty vehicles

  • Ford is issuing a safety compliance recall in North America for approximately 624 2017 Ford F-150 and Super Duty vehicles for insufficient weld penetration on the seat belt buckle attachment bracket on front passenger manual seats.
  • In affected vehicles, a seat track with this condition may not have sufficient weld penetration between the seatbelt anchor and seat cushion frame. A seat belt buckle weld with insufficient penetration may not properly restrain an occupant in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

    • 2017 Ford F-150 built at Dearborn Assembly Plant, Nov. 2-3, 2016
