Suspension > Rear Apr 25, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Apr 25, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V245000
Summary:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Ford Explorer vehicles manufactured January 17, 2014 to May 31, 2014. The affected vehicles may have improperly welded rear suspension toe links that may fracture.
Consequence:
A fracture of the rear suspension toe link may result in a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear suspension toe links, free of charge. The recall began on November 18, 2016. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 16S18.
Suspension > Rear Aug 27, 2017
Report Receipt Date:
Aug 27, 2017
NHTSA Campaign:
17E048000
Summary:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain Wheel Hub Bearing assemblies, part number HB5Z-1104-C, incorrectly listed as being for installation on the rear axles of 2011-2017 Ford Explorer 4X2 vehicles. These bearings assemblies were manufactured without a self retention feature, possibly resulting in the separation of the wheel or wheel end.
Consequence:
A loss of the wheel or wheel end can increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Ford will notify the distributors of the hubs specifying that they are to only be used on drive axles. It is believed that none of the hubs were purchased from Ford dealers for the incorrect application. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332.
