What’s the Problem?
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects:
- 2020 Lincoln Aviator
- 2020 Ford Explorer
The side airbag and/or seat back module attachments on affected vehicles may not have been properly tightened in the front seat backs, NHTSA said. If the side air bag or seat back fasteners were not properly tightened, the side air bag deployment could be affected, increasing the risk of injury during a crash.
Ford is notifying owners and dealers will remove front seat back panels from one or both front seats (VIN-specific) and verify that the fasteners have been properly tightened, free of charge.
This recall began on September 10, 2020.
