99V099
On certain sport utility vehicles equipped with four-wheel- drive (4x4) and 17-inch chrome steel wheels, the clamp load can be lost on the wheel lugs due to insufficient wheel contact area with the hub. In some cases, the contact area can deform, resulting in a loss of lug nut torque. Loss of lug nut torque can cause vibration or separation of a wheel and tire from the vehicle.
Dealers will re-torque the wheel lugs to proper specifications and also install a label that specifies that the wheel lugs be torqued to 110 pound-feet any time the wheel is removed. Owner notification was expected to begin during May 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.
