Manufacturer Ford Motor Company


Potential Number of Units Affected 24


Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2015-2020 Transit vehicles. An incorrect
driveshaft torsional damper service kit may have been installed, which can allow the damper
shield to contact the parking brake cable, possibly resulting in parking brake failure.


Dealers will replace the passenger side parking brake cable with a cable that provides sufficient
clearance to the damper shield, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be
mailed September 13, 2021. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332.
Ford’s number for this recall is 21S39.
