These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules, and used as original equipment or replacement equipment. In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the front air bags, these inflators may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.
Defect: An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants resulting in serious injury or death.
Corrective Action: Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator, free of charge. Remedy parts are currently unavailable. Ford mailed interim notices to owners on July 15, 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. The recall is expected to begin July 11, 2016.
