Ford Motor Company is recalling 184,698 model year 2021-2022 F-150s.
Underbody heat and noise insulators may loosen and contact the aluminum driveshaft, which could damage the driveshaft and cause it to fracture.
A fractured driveshaft can cause a loss of drive power or a loss of vehicle control if the driveshaft contacts the ground. Additionally, unintended movement could occur while parked if the parking brake is not engaged.
Any of these situations can increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
Dealers will inspect and repair the driveshaft -- as necessary -- and properly attach the underbody insulators free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on January 31, 2022.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 21S56.
