In the affected vehicles, which were manufactured from March 6 through April 3, the rear brake rotor bolts were not mounted correctly. (You can check your vehicle’s build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb.) If the bolts stick up above the wheel mounting, a loss of torque in the wheel joint and wheel separation could result. This could lead to an increased risk of injury.
Owner notification started May 24. All the affected vehicles have been quarantined and will be repaired before delivery to owners, according to Ford. Owners can call Ford at 866-436-7332 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
