Ford Motor Company South Africa is issuing a safety recall for certain Ford Rangers built between September 18, 2014 through August 28, 2018 at the FMCSA Silverton Assembly Plant, to replace the front brake flexible hoses.

What's the issue?

The automaker says: "Ford vehicles affected in this recall are fitted with two specific brake hoses for the front left and front right brakes.

"In affected vehicles, the brake hoses are under continual stress in their current configuration which over time leads to failure of the hose material.

What is Ford SA doing to fix the problem?

"The safety of our customers is our number one priority, so we are notifying customers through this recall to have their affected Front Brake Hoses replaced as a precaution.

"Dealers will replace the Front Brake Hoses at no cost to the customer. 

"Ford is committed to providing customers with top quality vehicles. We are equally committed to addressing potential issues and responding quickly to our customers." 

Customers can contact their nearest dealer or Ford Customer Service directly at 0860 011 022 or CRC3@ford.com
