Ford is recalling approximately 44,219 model-year 2021-2022 E-350 and E-450 vehicles equipped with dual rear wheels. An inadequate connection between the power steering pressure line and the brake Hydroboost unit may result in a sudden loss of power steering fluid. A sudden loss of power steering fluid can cause a loss of power steering and power brake assist, increasing the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on March 7, 2022. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 866-436-7332 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will inspect the connection between the power steering lines and the Hydroboost unit, and replace the power steering lines, as necessary.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
