2011 Ford E-150 Recalls
The folding link arms of the wheel chair lifts may have pivot holes that are too big, which could cause failure of the mounts of the wheel chair lift platform. The lift platform may fall out of the vehicle when the doors are opened. Dealers will inspect the link arms for damage or displaced bearings and inspect the platform for cracks. All parts that are suspect will be replaced free of charge to resolve the concern.
On vehicles modified to accept a wheelchair lift, the platform for the wheelchair can crack and separate the lift. Dealers will replace any cracking platform and supply supplemental platform supports free of charge to correct the problem.
Propane powered vans and wagons as modified by Roush may develop a propane fuel leak where the fuel line meets the fuel supply valve. Dealers will replace the aluminum fuel line fittings with stainless steel fittings free of charge to correct the problem.
The brackets that hold the fuel cylinder in place for a natural gas (CNG) modified vehicle converted by Landi Renzo USA may fail, resulting in the cylinder becoming dislodged. Dealers will inspect and replace the side arm brackets as needed free of charge to resolve the concern.
The fuel injectors may not be securely attached to the fuel rails on vehicles modified for use with propane fuel. Dealers will replace affected injector retainer clips free of charge to resolve the concern.
101 vehicles altered by Roush Racing to operate using the Roush Cleantech Propane Autogas may develop a fuel leak. This is due to improperly seated fuel injector retention clips. Fuel leaks always increase the risk of a fire. Roush will replace the retaining clips to correct this concern.
Approximately 4500 vehicles are being recalled because bubbles can form in the windshield if it is exposed to hot temperatures for an extended time. These bubbles can affect driver visibility, in increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the windshield on affected vehicles and replace it as necessary to correct this concern.
Fifteen vehicles using the Roush liquid propane autogas fuel system may develop a propane leak. This condition is a result of a mis-machined valve in the propane system. A propane leak increases the risk of a fire. Roush will replace the defective valve with a correctly machined one. No notification schedule is available at this time.
On vehicles equipped with a power driver's seat, the seat track worm gear may fracture. This could result in unintended seat movement in the event of a crash or other case of severe loading, which may increase the risk of injury to the driver. Dealers will inspect the driver's seat track and replace it if necessary. This recall is scheduled to begin on May 2, 2011. The Ford recall number is 11C16.
