Ford Motor Company is recalling about 29,000 model year 2019 Ford F-Series Super Duty vehicles in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
The electronically locking rear-axle assembly may have a passenger-side axle shaft manufactured with steel that does not meet Ford’s specifications that may fracture.
A fractured passenger-side axle shaft could result in a loss of motive power while in two-wheel drive, and the inability to hold the park function. If the parking brake is not applied, this could result in unintended vehicle movement, increasing the risk of crash or injury.
What to do
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the passenger-side rear axle shaft; shafts with a suspect batch code will be replaced.
Owners are advised to apply the parking brake whenever the vehicle is parked until the service fix is completed.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's reference number for this recall is 19S31.
