2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E Recalled Over Rear Axle Half Shaft Issue

Ford Motor Company is recalling select 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E models due to a rear axle half shaft issue.

The defect: in affected vehicles, the right-rear axle half shafts may have been manufactured improperly, allowing the half shaft stem to break under load.

The hazards: a broken half shaft can cause a loss of drive power, or a rollaway could occur while parked if the electronic parking brake is not engaged. Either of these scenarios can increase the risk of a crash.

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

Components: right-rear axle half shafts.

Affected vehicles: select 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E models produced between July 18th, 2022 through July 29th, 2022, at the Cuautitlan Assembly plant.

Number of vehicles affected: 1,175

The fix: dealers will inspect the serial number, and replace the right-rear half shaft, as necessary, free of charge.

Owners should: wait for communications from Ford, which will begin on September 19th, 2022. The Ford reference number for this recall is 22S55.

    To save money, Ford is de-contenting their vehicles ( with no, or very little compensation ) and using cheaper suppliers for their parts, and it continues to show.

    Have a 22 Premium. It’s got an “electrical whine/whistle coming from front drive motor. Dealer says none of 21’s have it, but virtually all 22’s going through their dealership do. Wonder if this a a cheaper supplier problem.

    1. RWoodworth

      Ford Motor has set the all time record every year for recalls, and for over the last 50 years. I was a OEM product supplier to the auto industry for 32 years, and Ford’s inspection requirements, and part quality are lower than Hyundai & Kia? They put a very glossy clear coat on their cheaply made Union Products. You see, the Unions cost Ford more than they will admit, and just like a BayLiner Boat (A Union SHOP) , the Sea Ray Boat( NOT UNION), made such a wonderful quality craft. If you bought a Bayliner, you would not be able to sell it or trade it in ?

      Being serious: probably a cheaper bearing in use somewhere.
