oemdtc September 20, 2018 Recalls

NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V612
Manufacturer Ford Motor Company
Potential Number of Units Affected 503

Incorrect Length of Door Striker Bolts/FMVSS 206

If the doors open in the event of a crash, there is an increased risk of injury.

Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2018 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX vehicles. These vehicles may have door striker bolts that are shorter than intended. Vehicles with shorter door striker bolts fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 206, “Door Locks and Door Retention Components” potentially resulting in the doors opening in the event of a crash.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the door striker bolts, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 15, 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 18C06.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

September 12, 2018

TO: All U.S. Ford and Lincoln Dealers

Compliance Recall 18C06
Certain 2018 Model Year Edge and MKX Vehicles
Incorrect Door Striker Bolts

Vehicle Model Year Assembly Plant Build Dates
Edge 2018 Oakville July 27, 2018 through July 31, 2018
MKX 2018 Oakville July 27, 2018 through July 31, 2018

Affected vehicles are identified in OASIS and FSA VIN Lists.

Some of the affected vehicles may have an incorrect shorter length door striker bolt installed, and may not conform to the requirements specified by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 206: Door Locks and Door Retention Components. Reduced door striker strength may allow a door to open in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

DO NOT DEMONSTRATE OR DELIVER any new in-stock vehicles involved in this compliance recall. A complete Dealer Bulletin will be provided to dealers by early 4th Quarter, 2018 when it is anticipated that parts ordering information and repair instructions will be available to support this compliance recall.

IMPORTANT: Dealers should open a Repair Order (RO) only when a full dealer bulletin is published. Opening an RO against an Awareness or Advance Notice will result in warranty rejections against a recall.
