AFFECTED VEHICLES

Vehicle Model Year Assembly Plant Build Dates
Mustang 2020 Flat Rock September 17, 2019 through August 13, 2020

 

Affected vehicles are identified in OASIS and FSA VIN Lists.

 

REASON FOR THIS SAFETY RECALL
In some of the affected vehicles, the brake pedal bracket could fracture if rapid and forceful pressure is applied to the brake pedal, typically seen during track and competition driving. This may result in a loss of primary braking capability, increasing the risk of a crash. In the event of a loss of primary braking capability, the parking brake can be used to bring the vehicle to a stop.

 

SERVICE ACTION

Before demonstrating or delivering any new in-stock vehicles involved in this recall, dealers are to inspect the brake pedal and bracket assembly part number label and repair if necessary. Brake pedal and bracket assemblies with engineering part number FR3C-2D094-AE or FR3C-2D094-CE will be replaced following the dealer bulletin technical instructions. This service must be performed on all affected vehicles at no charge to the vehicle owner.

NOTE:  Parts are currently not available in sufficient quantities to repair all vehicles. Part orders can be requested through the Special Service Support Center (SSSC) using the SSSC link at the bottom of the OASIS VIN report screen to repair vehicles that meet the following criteria only:

  • Affected customer vehicles that arrive at your dealership.
  • New in-stock vehicles with a signed sales contract.

It is anticipated that parts will be available in sufficient quantities to repair all vehicles in the first quarter of 2021. Refer to Attachment II for additional information.

 

OWNER NOTIFICATION AND MAILING SCHEDULE

Owners of affected vehicles have been notified. Dealers should repair any affected vehicles that arrive at their dealerships, whether or not the customer has received a letter.

PASS – For any one of the following part numbers FR3C-2D094-AF, FR3C-2D094-CF, FR3C-2D094-CD or FR3C-2D094-AD, no further action is required. The safety recall is complete.

NOTE: Taking a picture with a cellular phone will aid in viewing and retaining the brake pedal and bracket assembly part number.

 

SERVICE PROCEDURE

NOTICE: Do not service the brake pedal or brake booster without first removing the stoplamp switch. The switch must be removed with the brake pedal in the at-rest position. The switch plunger must be compressed for the switch to rotate in the bracket. Attempting to remove the switch when the plunger is extended (during pedal apply) will result in damage to the switch.

 

NOTE: The brake pedal retaining nuts are one-time use only nuts and must be replaced when removed.

 

1. Remove the Stop Lamp Switch. Please follow the Workshop Manual (WSM) procedures in Section 417-01.

2. Detach the wiring harness retainers. See Figure 2.

 

NOTE: The booster push rod clevis-locking pin is a one-time use only part. Any time the booster push rod clevis-locking pin is removed, a new booster push rod clevis-locking pin should be used.

 

NOTE: Be sure that the push rod is aligned with the clevis during installation.

 

3. Remove and discard the booster push rod clevis-locking pin and position aside the booster push rod. See Figure 3.

 

4. Remove the retainers, discard the 4 nuts and remove the brake pedal and bracket. See Figure 4.

  • Torque: 17 lb.ft (22.5 Nm).

 

NOTICE: Do not press, pull or otherwise move the brake pedal while installing the stoplamp switch. The switch must be installed with the booster push rod attached to the brake pedal and with the brake pedal in the at-rest position. Installing the switch with the brake pedal in any other position will result in incorrect adjustment and may damage the switch.

 

NOTE: When installing the new brake pedal and bracket assembly ensure that the brake booster push rod clevis is aligned with the brake pedal attachment point before installing the retainers.

 

5. Install a new brake pedal and bracket by reversing the removal procedure.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Federal law prohibits selling motor vehicle parts or components that are under safety, compliance, or emissions recall. Unless a part is requested to be returned to Ford, all parts replaced under this FSA must be scrapped in accordance with all applicable local, state and federal environmental protection and hazardous material regulations. Refer to the Parts Retention, Return, & Scrapping section of the FSA dealer bulletin for further information.

Safety recall for select 2020 Ford Mustang vehicles

Affected vehicles are equipped with a brake pedal bracket that could fracture during sudden stopping. During a sudden stop, the driver may experience a loss of primary braking capability that could increase the risk of an accident.

Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition.

This action affects 38,005 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories, 2,251 in Canada and 322 in Mexico. Affected vehicles were built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant from March 4, 2019, to Aug. 13, 2020.

Safety recall for select 2019 Ford FSeries Super Duty vehicles

Affected F-250 and F-350 vehicles are equipped with front axles that may contain a wheel end yoke that was not properly welded to the axle tube end. An improperly welded attachment may cause steering effects that could impact vehicle control. This may include pulling to the right or left, misalignment of the steering wheel or change in steering sensitivity that could affect the response of the vehicle to driver input during a hard-braking event, increasing risk of a crash.

Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition.

This action affects 9,628 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories and 961 in Canada. Affected vehicles were built at Kentucky Truck Plant from Aug. 24 to Oct. 16, 2019.
