|TSB 17-0049||POWER LIFTGATE – LIFTGATE MISALIGNMENT AND DAMAGED LEFT LIFTGATE HINGE MOUNTING AREA – BUILT ON OR BEFORE 9-AUG-2016|
|Publication Date: June 13, 2017|
Some 2013-2017 Escape and 2015-2017 MKC vehicles with a power liftgate built on or before 9-Aug-2016 may exhibit a concern with misalignment of the liftgate due to damage that has occurred to the left liftgate hinge mounting area. This concern can be caused by repeated manual closing of the power liftgate. Updated liftgate hinges will be installed to spread the load on the rear header panel to prevent damage.
