Problem Description

The vehicles pose the risk of injuries because they have been fitted with a brake pedal pin retaining “R” clip which does not meet material specification. Spring tension of the clip will be reduced. As a result, there is the possibility that the clip could come off, allowing the brake pedal to detach from the brake booster push rod. This would result in loss of brake actuation and could lead to an accident.

The recall affects Transit and Transit Custom vehicles, produced between 08.10.2012 and 06.02.2013 in Kocaeli, Turkey, and Transit vehicles, produced between 28.09.2012 and 06.02.2013 in Southampton, UK.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, the motor industry standards body Motor Codes offers a Vehicle Safety Recall search. By using this, any recalls that are active for your car can be identified. To use this facility, you’ll need the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for your car – this is a long code number that appears on the chassis plate of your car or – on most UK-registered cars – in the bottom-left corner of your windscreen.

If it’s confirmed there’s an active recall for your car, you should make contact with a Ford dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer. Usually that’ll be your nearest franchised dealership, or ‘main dealer’ as they’re sometimes known.
