The rear axle hub bolt may break, posing a crash risk

Ford Motor Company is recalling 112,965 model year 2021-2023 F-150s with the Trailer Tow Max Duty package and a 9.75-inch heavy duty axle with a 3/4 float axle design.

The rear axle hub bolt may fatigue and break, which can result in damage to the axle hub splines.

Damaged axle hub splines can result in a vehicle rollaway when the vehicle is in park without the parking brake on, or cause a loss of drive power.

Both conditions can increase the risk of a crash.

What to do

The remedy is currently under development.

Owners will be instructed to take their vehicle to a dealer for an interim repair if they experience symptoms related to rear axle bolt breakage, such as a clicking or rattling noise.

Letters notifying owners of this recall are expected to be mailed January 29, 2024.

Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 23S65.
