The driver's side seat back frame on a manually reclining seat may not be welded sufficiently, and may not protect an occupant in a crash.
Recall repairs on your Ford must be performed by a Ford dealership. Ford will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in August, 2016. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Ford dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with. The Ford recall number is 16C11.
The manual reclining driver's side front seat may have a seat back frame that is not welded sufficiently. Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the seat back frame free of charge to resolve the concern.
