RECALL; FORD RANGER 2004-2006

NHTSA Campaign Number: 17V787000

Manufacturer Ford Motor Company

Components AIR BAGS

Potential Number of Units Affected 361,523

Summary

Ford Motor Company (Ford) is superseding a previous recall for certain 2004-2006 Ford Ranger trucks to implement a final repair. Upon deployment of the driver side frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture.

Remedy

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver’s frontal air bag inflator with an alternate inflator, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 26, 2017, and will be launched in phases through the end of March 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 17S42. Note: This recall supersedes recall 16V-036 which was an interim repair. Vehicles that received a replacement air bag inflator under the previous campaign need to return to a dealer to have an alternate inflator installed.

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
