2016-2017 Lincoln Navigator Recalled Over Brake Master Cylinder Issue

Ford Motor Company is recalling select 2016-2017 Lincoln Navigator models due to a brake master cylinder issue. This recall also applies to 2016-2017 Ford Expedition models, as Ford Authority reported earlier today.

The defect: in affected vehicles, a seal in the rear of the brake master cylinder may become compromised, allowing brake fluid to leak into the brake booster.

The hazards: a leaking brake booster can reduce brake function in the front wheels, which can extend stopping distance, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford is not aware of any reports of accidents or injuries related to this condition.

Components: brake master cylinder.

Affected vehicles: select 2016-2017 Lincoln Navigator models built at the Ford Kentucky Truck Plant between July 20th, 2015, and January 31st, 2017.

Number of vehicles affected: 15,499

The fix: dealers will replace the brake master cylinder. If the master cylinder is leaking, the brake booster will also be replaced, free of charge.

Owners should: wait for communications from Ford, which will begin on April 25th, 2022. The Ford reference number for this recall is 22S11.
