Ford Motor Company is recalling select 2016-2018 Ford F-150 models equipped with the automaker’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6 due to a brake master cylinder issue. This recall also applies to select 2016-2017 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator 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.
Number of vehicles affected: 195,864
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.
