Rear Wing Hydraulic Fluid Leak may Cause Fire

A hydraulic fluid leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire.

 

Summary

Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2017-2018 Ford GT vehicles. The rear wing valve block may leak hydraulic fluid.

 

Remedy

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will perform a software update to the fully integrated vehicle controller, which eliminates the possibility of excessive pressure in the valve block assembly. Some vehicles will have a rear wing hydraulic check valve installed and will have the o-rings and the filter replaced, if needed. The repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 26, 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 18S29.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
