What are the defects?

Due to a manufacturing fault, the vehicle's rear driveshaft bearing support bracket may hold the driveshaft at the incorrect angle, causing excessive wear to the driveshaft over time.

What are the hazards?

If the driveshaft suffers excessive wear, for example in vehicles with high mileage, it could detach and hit the road or dig into the road surface. This could cause the vehicle to be lifted or tipped over, increasing the risk of an accident causing injury or death to vehicle occupants and/or other road users.

What should consumers do?

Ford will contact owners of all affected vehicles to arrange for inspection and repair, free of charge.
