Ford Motor Company is recalling 177,264 model year 2016 F-150s and Explorers.
Loose power seat adjuster pivot bolts may cause the front seat cushions to detach and not properly restrain the seat occupant in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of an injury.
What to do
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the tightness of the power seat track upper pivot link bolt, either applying threadlocker or replacing the lift link and hardware, free of charge.
Interim letters are expected to go out January 15, 2018, and a second notice will be sent when the remedy becomes available.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 17S40.
