Ford Motor Company is superseding a previous recall for 361,523 2004-2006 Ford Ranger trucks to implement a final repair.
Upon deployment of the driver side front airbag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture with metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants potentially resulting in serious injury or death.
What to do
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver's front airbag inflator with an alternate inflator, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin December 26, 2017, and will be launched in phases through the end of March 2018.
Vehicles that received a replacement air bag inflator under the previous recall need to be returned to a dealer to have an alternate inflator installed.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 17S42.
