Corrosion of the bearing pin in the bearing bush can increase the frictional resistance of the bearing to such an extent that the vertical forces occurring are absorbed by the track rod itself. As a result, the track rod of the rear suspension system may break reducing the steering control of the vehicle and increasing the risk of an accident.
The Ford Explorer vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured between 9 April 2012 and 30 September 2017.
