Ford Issues Recall for F-150, Raptor, F-650 & F-750

By -


The recall issues affecting several F-Series pickups range from poorly torqued nuts, to missing rivets and poor welding.

Ford has made official a new series of recalls for several pickups and medium-duty trucks in North America. If you believe to be affected by this, it’s important that you contact your local Ford dealership.

F-650 & F-750 – Reference Recall Number 17S30

This recall affects approximately 77 vehicles in the United States. According to the Blue Oval, these vehicles may contain castellated nuts at the tie rod ends that were torqued below the minimum specification. The safety issue is a problem when the tie rod becomes disconnected from the steering system, resulting in a loss of the ability to steer at low speeds. Ford says there have been no accidents or injuries resulting from this issue.

Affected vehicles are:

  • 2015 F-650s built at Escobedo Assembly Plant, March 4, 2015 to April 27, 2015.
  • 2015 F-750s built at Escobedo Assembly Plant, March 4, 2015 to April 27, 2015.


F-150 Raptor – Reference Recall Number 17S29

This recall affects approximately 42 trucks in the United States and Canada. The safety recall states that the trucks may be missing rivets in the roofing structure, which could lead to reduced structural integrity in the event of a rollover. No injuries or accidents have been reported.

Affected vehicles are:

  • 2018 F-150 Raptor SuperCab without moonroofs built at Dearborn Assembly Plant, June 8, 2017 to Aug. 21, 2017


F-150 – Reference Recall Number 17C17

This safety recall affects approximately 624 vehicles in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The recall states that there may be insufficient weld penetration on the seat belt buckle attachment bracket on the front passenger seat, on trucks with manual seats. This may result in the weld not properly holding, and the seatbelt not restraining the passenger in the event of a crash. Ford doesn’t have any records of injuries or accidents associated with the recall.

Affected vehicles are:

  • 2017 Ford F-150 built at Dearborn Assembly Plant, Nov. 2-3, 2016
  • 2017 Ford F-150 built at Kansas City Assembly Plant, Nov. 4-7, 2016
  • 2017 Ford Super Duty built at Kentucky Assembly Plant, Nov. 2, 2016 to June 4, 2017
  • 2017 Ford Super Duty built at Ohio Assembly Plant, Nov. 7-21, 201
