Ford Motor Co. is recalling 37,905 2015-2016 model-year low-roof Ford Transit vehicles in the U.S. and Canada so dealers can inspect and adjust the side-curtain air bags as needed, the automaker said.

The side-curtain air bags in some vehicles may be positioned incorrectly, Ford said, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.

Ford noted, however, it isn’t aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue.

A total of 37,066 of the recalled Transits are in the U.S. and federalized territories and 839 are in Canada. The recalled vehicles were built at Kansas City Assembly Plant from March 12, 2014 through March 18 of this year.

There will be no charge for this repair.
