Ford Motor Company is recalling about 1.6 million model year 2015-2018 F-150 Regular Cab and SuperCrew Cab trucks.
If a front seatbelt pretensioner deploys as the result of a crash, the sparks may ignite materials such as carpeting or insulation within the B-pillar area, resulting in a vehicle fire.
What to do
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will remove the B-pillar insulation material and wiring harness tape, and install heat resistant tape, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin September 24, 2018.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 18S27.
