Recall 17V671000

Transmission Shift Lever Becomes Detached From Transmission

Recall Details

The pin that attaches the shift linkage to the transmission may come out, preventing the transmission shift lever from operating as desired. Dealers will replace the roll pin with an updated part free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The transmission shift lever may become unresponsive because a pin that attaches the shift linkage to the transmission may come out. This would prevent the shift lever from changing the transmission gears as desired, and as a result the vehicle may move forwards or backwards or roll unexpectedly increasing risk of injury or an accident.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Ford must be performed by a Ford dealership. Ford will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in December, 2017.

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 17S36.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2017 F-150 vehicles equipped with ten-speed transmissions. The pin that attaches the transmission shift linkage to the transmission may come out, preventing the transmission from responding to movement of the shift lever.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the roll pin with an updated part, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 11, 2017. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 17S36.
