What are the defects?

In some of the affected vehicles, the front brake caliper material may not meet specification, causing the caliper to crack.

If the front brake caliper cracks, the brake system warning lamp of the instrument cluster will illuminate.

What are the hazards?

Cracking of the front brake caliper could lead to a loss of brake fluid, causing increased brake pedal travel and increased stopping distances. This increases the risk of an accident.

Rear brakes are not affected and will continue to function normally.

What should consumers do?

Ford Australia will contact all affected owners. Consumers will be advised to present their vehicle to their preferred Ford Dealer to inspect the front brake calipers and replace these with new parts if they are affected. These replacements will be completed at no charge.

For further information, contact any authorised Ford dealer or Ford's Customer Relationship Centre on 1800 503 672.
