Ford recalls 26,000 trucks for seat belt issue
Washington — Ford Motor Co. said Tuesday it is recalling 26,400 heavy duty F-650 and F-750 trucks in North America because the seat belts may not be anchored in the correct position.
The Dearborn automaker said the recall covers the 2011-2013 and 2015 model year trucks that don’t comply with a federal safety standard.
“The front passenger and center seat belts might not be anchored in the correct position relative to the seat, increasing the risk of injury in a crash,” Ford said in a statement.
Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.
The recall includes 25,941 vehicles in the United States and 417 in Canada. All were built in Mexico. Ford announced last week it is shifting production of the trucks to Ohio.
Due to the significant number of cab and seat configurations for these vehicles, service procedures are still being developed in an effort to provide a service fix, Ford said.
Ford has recalled more than 3.8 million vehicles in 21 campaigns this year.
