What are the defects?
A number of 5.0L Mustang vehicles may have reduced clearance between the battery cable wiring loom and the exhaust manifold.
What are the hazards?
On these vehicles it is possible that the wiring loom could contact the manifold and result in a short circuit, potentially resulting in an engine compartment fire. At the time of publication there had been no reported occurrences in Australia.
What should consumers do?
Ford will write to owners of all affected vehicles. Owners are advised to contact their Ford authorised dealership for inspection and rectification.
