2000 Ford F Super Duty Trucks Recalled
Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway
Transportation Administration (NHTSA) has published the recall of certain 2000
Ford F Super Duty trucks because certain vehicles built on a stripped motor home chassis
may have a missing or partially installed brake pedal to master cylinder pushrod retaining
If the clip is missing or falls out, the
pushrod could disconnect from the brake pedal, resulting in the operator being unable to
apply the brakes and increasing the risk of a crash.
8,100 vehicles, manufactured between November 1999
and April 2000, are affected by this recall.
Dealers will inspect the retaining clip
installation. Missing or partially installed clips will be properly installed.
The manufacturer has reported that owner
notification began July 10, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a
reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.
