Ford has launched a voluntary safety recall for select 2021 model-year Ford F-650 and F-750 vehicles with 7.3L engine. This action affects 1,299 vehicles in the U.S. and 31 in Canada.
Affected vehicles were built without certain thermal protection components intended to reduce the interior cabin floor and seat attachment temperatures. These missing components may include an underbody heat shield, a thermal insulator patch under the floor mat, or covers for the seat bolts and seat pedestal.
In vehicles built without these thermal protection components, the interior cabin floor and seat attachments could reach elevated temperatures during certain high-load, high ambient temperature driving conditions. Continuous skin contact with elevated temperatures may lead to skin irritation or a minor burn.
Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition.
Affected vehicles were built at Ohio Assembly Plant from March 18, to June 8, 2020.
Dealers will install the underbody heat shield, thermal insulator patch under the floor mat, seat base covers and seat bolt covers. The Ford reference number for this recall is 20S36.
