Ford Motor Company is issuing three safety recalls in North America.

Safety recall for select 2015-17 Ford Transit vehicles for driveshaft flexible coupling issue

Ford Motor Company is issuing a safety recall for select 2015-17 Ford Transit vehicles. In affected vehicles, the driveshaft flexible coupling may crack with increasing mileage, resulting in driveline noise and vibration. Continued driving with a cracked flexible coupling may cause separation of the driveshaft, resulting in a loss of motive power, or unintended vehicle movement in park without the parking brake applied. In addition, separation of the driveshaft can result in secondary damage to surrounding components, including brake and fuel lines. A driveshaft separation may increase the risk of injury or crash.

Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition.

This action affects 293,558 vehicles in the United States and federal territories, 22,960 in Canada and 2,744 in Mexico.

Affected vehicles were built at Kansas City Assembly Plant, Jan. 17, 2014, to June 15, 2017.

Ford does not expect the enhanced driveshaft flexible couplings previously installed per recall 17S15 to deteriorate sufficiently to result in driveline separation before 40,000 miles. For affected vehicles with flexible couplings with more than 40,000 miles, the interim repair will consist of replacing the driveshaft flexible coupling every 40,000 miles until the final repair is available and completed.

Once permanent repair parts become available, dealers will install driveshaft front sections with mechanical U-joints to replace the driveshaft flexible couplings. The Ford reference number for this recall is 19S38.

Safety recall for select 2019 Ford Edge vehicles for seat belt anchor separation

Ford is issuing a safety recall for select 2019 Ford Edge vehicles for an improperly crimped seat belt pretensioner anchor. In some of the affected vehicles, the driver’s side seat belt assembly may not adequately restrain the occupant in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition.

This action affects 366 vehicles in the United States and 65 in Canada.

Affected vehicles were built at Oakville Assembly Plant, Sept. 18-19, 2019.

Dealers will inspect the driver’s side seat belt pretensioner assembly and replace it if it is within the suspect part production dates. The Ford reference number for this recall is 19S37.

Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition.

This action affects 18 vehicles in the United States.

Affected vehicles were built at Kentucky Truck Plant:

  • Ford Expedition vehicles built Sept. 5-6, 2019
  • Lincoln Navigator vehicles built Sept. 6, 2019

Dealers will verify that the rear toe-link-to-frame fasteners are tightened to the correct torque, check and adjust the rear toe alignment and inspect the rear tires for abnormal wear and replace, if necessary. The Ford reference number for this recall is 19S36.
