Ford Motor Company is recalling 16,128 model year 2020-2021 F-53 Motorhome Stripped Chassis and F-59 Commercial Stripped Chassis vehicles.

An inadequate amount of rear axle lubricant may cause rear wheel bearing damage and bearing seizure, and rear axle or driveshaft failure.

Failure of the rear axle or driveshaft may cause the loss of motive power, failure of the parking brake, and the inability to shift the transmission into "PARK," increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and -- as necessary -- replace the rear wheel bearings free of charge.

Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 21S17.
