Ford Motor Company is recalling 49 model year 2020 Lincoln Aviators and Ford Explorers.

The rear lower control arm (RLCA) bolts that attach the rear lower control arms to the wheel knuckles may not have been heat-treated, which could cause them to break.

Broken RLCA bolts can result in a loss of steering control, and increase the risk of a crash.

What to do

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace both RLCA bolts free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin March 29, 2021.

Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 21S11.
