What are the defects?

Some vehicles may be fitted with front flexible brake hoses that are prone to failure where the brake hose has developed a twist when assembled to the vehicle. This could create a tight bend in the hose that causes the inner and outer hose layers to wear when driven over extreme bumps that require greater suspension travel.

If the front brake hose fails, the brake system warning lamp of the instrument cluster will illuminate.

What are the hazards?

Failure of the front brake hose 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 replace the front brake hoses with new parts. 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.
