1999-2000 Ford Econoline E350 Automobiles Recalled

Detroit, MI  (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Transportation Administration (NHTSA) has published the recall of certain 1999-2000 Ford Econoline E350 automobiles because on certain cutaways and stripped chassis with single rear wheels, the lug nuts can potentially bottom out on the shoulder of the studs.

According to the NHTSA, if this occurs, there will be inadequate clamp load to attach the wheel to the axle hub, resulting in noise, damage to the wheel and hub, and possibly loss of the rear wheel while the vehicle is being driven.

3,300 of these vehicles, manufactured between August 1998 through December 1999 are affected by this recall.

Dealers will replace the rear wheel attaching studs.

The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during May 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.

[NHTSA Recall No. 00V115/Ford Recall No.00S08]
