2024 Ford Mustang Recalled Over Clutch Pressure Line Issue

Ford Motor Company is recalling certain examples of the 2024 Ford Mustang outfitted with the manual transmission due to an issue with the vehicle’s clutch pressure line.

The defect: in affected vehicles, the clutch pressure line may not be properly secured to the vehicle’s firewall stud. The line may contact hot exhaust components and melt, causing a brake fluid leak.

The hazards: a brake fluid leak from the clutch system can result in an inability to change gears, and may cause the vehicle to stall on throttle tip-out at certain speeds, thereby increasing the risk of a crash. Additionally, if brake fluid accumulates near a sufficiently hot surface, an under-hood fire may occur, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants.

Ford is aware of two reports of under-hood fire allegations in the 2024 Ford Mustang. However, Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition.

Components: clutch pressure line.

Affected vehicles: select 2024 Ford Mustang models with the manual transmission produced at the Flat Rock Assembly plant between September 27th, 2022 and May 23rd, 2024.

Number of affected vehicles: 8,161

The fix: dealers will inspect the clutch pressure line and repair if necessary, free of charge to 2024 Ford Mustang owners.

Owners should: wait for communications from Ford, which will begin on June 17th, 2024. The Ford reference number for this recall is 24S36.
