2016 Ford F-150: Recall Alert


Vehicles Affected: Approximately 137,100 model-year 2016 Ford F-150 (all cabs and all engines) built at the Dearborn Assembly Plant and the Kansas City Assembly Plant from Jan. 22 to April 19, 2016

The Problem: The upper left-hand pivot bolt for the front seat adjuster may loosen and/or fall out. A front seat cushion with a missing upper left-hand pivot bolt may experience increased movement in a crash and not properly restrain occupants in the event of an accident, increasing the risk of injury.

The Fix: Dealers will measure the torque of the power seat-track upper pivot link bolt. If the bolt passes the torque inspection, dealers will remove and clean the bolt, apply new threadlock and reinstall the bolt to the specified torque.

If the bolt fails the torque inspection, threadlock will be added and the bolt will be reinstalled as an interim repair for sold units until the final repair is available. The final repair will include replacement of the lift link with new bushings and fasteners. All repairs will be performed for free.

What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately announce an owner notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332 or go to to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
