RepairPal Expert Overview
The left rear seat back has pivot pins that allow the seat to be folded down. These pins may not have been welded properly, which could allow the seat back to separate in an accident. This could allow stored luggage and cargo to enter the passenger compartment and possibly injure passengers.
Recall repairs on your Ford must be performed by a Ford dealership. Ford will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in January, 2017. 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 incomplete 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 16S43.
The left rear seat back pivot pins may have been welded improperly during manufacturing. Dealers will replace the left rear seat back frame free of charge to resolve the concern.
