Whether it’s to lessen the blow or to save time writing press releases, Ford loves issuing multiple recalls simultaneously. Sometimes, 자동차 우레탄 부싱 they have no relation to each other, 자동차 우레탄 부싱 but this time around, 자동차 우레탄 부싱 both recalls focus on pieces related to the transmission.

Recall the first: Ranger fasteners

Ford’s first recall of the day covers approximately 2,500 examples of the 2019 Ranger midsize pickup. The vehicles were all built at Ford’s Michigan Assembly Plant between March 5 and 13, 2019. This recall also covers about 260 trucks in Canada.

The problem stems from fasteners that secure a transmission shift cable bracket to the transmission’s housing. These fasteners might not be torqued to proper specifications. If one or both fasteners become loose, it might allow the transmission to be in a different gear than what the driver has selected. It can create a rollaway situation if the vehicle is placed in Park without actually shifting to Park, and it may also allow the driver to remove the ignition key without the vehicle being in Park.

Recalled vehicles will need to return to dealerships. There, Ford’s technicians will torque the fasteners to the proper specification and verify that the transmission and gear lever are properly synced up. In the meantime, Ford recommends applying the parking brake when the vehicle is turned off, just in case.
