What are the defects?
The gearshift cable retaining clip may not be securely fastened, which could lead to the gearshift cables making contact with the rear driveshaft.
What are the hazards?
Continued contact between the gearshift cables and driveshaft can damage both components. This could result in difficulty changing gears and/or loss of drive, posing an accident hazard.
At the time of release there have been no reported failures of the affected parts 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. For further information, contact any authorised Ford Dealer or Ford's Customer Relationship Centre on 1800 503 672.
