Ford issues an airbag inflator recall

Airbag inflator recall

A news report on slashgear.com reports that the Ford Motor Company has issued two new recalls affecting older Ford vehicles and the new Bronco Sport truck. The recall affects vehicles that were previously recalled and fixed during the initial Takata airbag recall. When some of the recalled airbags were being fixed, some vehicles were repaired using Takata parts that are now obsolete.

Ford has identified specific Takata airbag modules that were not removed from service stock. Ford conducted an “extensive investigation and tracing” and was not able to account for some of the obsolete Takata airbag parts. Ford believes that since they cannot locate the parts, the parts may have been installed in motor vehicles receiving collision or theft repairs.

Ford stated that they had not received any injury or accident reports concerning the issue. The airbag recall covers two different motor vehicle populations.

The first motor vehicle population identified 1,117 motor vehicles with accident repairs that may have been completed using obsolete service parts involving 1,067 in the United States and federal territories. This group covers certain:

  • 2004-11 Ford Ranger,
  • 2005-14 Ford Mustang,
  • 2006 Ford GT,
  • 2008-12 Ford Fusion,
  • 2009-11 Mercury Milan,
  • 2010-12 Lincoln MKZ,
  • 2007-10 Ford Edge,
  • and 2007-10 Lincoln MKX vehicles.

Ford dealers will examine the driver’s side and the passenger’s side airbag inflator or module and replace the parts if necessary.

The second population of cars affected by the recall affects 2004 through 2006 Ford Ranger pickup trucks. Ford says it is possible those parts were installed after theft or collision repairs. There is a potential for 144,340 Ranger trucks in the U.S. and federal territories.

The Ford Motor Company also issued a new safety recall for 1,666 Bronco Sport trucks. Those trucks were produced with rear suspension modules that may not be completely secured to the truck’s subframe. The defect poses an increased risk for a traffic accident, although Ford stated that the company had not received any reports of accidents or injuries. In this recall, 1,640 of the vehicles are located in the US and federal territories.
