2019 Ford F-Series Super Duty Recall Issued By Ford For Rear Axle

Ford has issued a 2019 Ford F-Series Super Duty recall that impacts only certain vehicles. The recall has to do with a problem with the electronically locking rear-axle assembly. The automaker says that no injuries have been reported that have to do with this recall. Ford recalled some F-Series trucks last month.

The defect: the electronically locking rear-axle assembly may have a passenger side axle shaft that uses steel that doesn’t meet Ford specifications.


The hazards: since the passenger-side axle shaft may use steel that doesn’t meet Ford standards, it could fracture leading to the loss of motive power in two-wheel drive mode and loss of the ability to hold park. If the axle shaft fractured and no parking brake was applied, the vehicle could move unintentionally.

Components: passenger-side rear axle shaft.

Affected vehicles: affected vehicles in the 2019 Ford F-Series Super Duty recall were built at the Kentucky Truck Plant and Ohio Assembly Plant May 21st through July 26th, 2019.

Number of affected vehicles: the 2019 Ford F-Series Super Duty recall action affects 28,579 vehicles in the U.S. and federal territories, 4,316 in Canada, and 73 in Mexico.

The fix: dealers will inspect the passenger-side rear axle shaft and those with suspect batch code will be replaced.

Owners should: Ford is advising owners to apply the parking brake whenever the vehicle is parked until the recall fix is complete.

    It sounds to me as though they should begin metal “spark testing”¹˙² and both Brinnell³ and “core” hardness testing* at Ford’s Sterling Axle Plant (Sterling Heights, Michigan) on all ‘vendor’ axle shafts.
