Re: Recall on 2005 - 2007 FEH and 2006 - 2007 MMH

I'm glad you got to talk to someone that knows what exactly was done! I was trying to get the service procedure from a friend that works at Ford but I won't bug him anymore since you found the info.

Re: Recall on 2005 - 2007 FEH and 2006 - 2007 MMH

Re: Recall on 2005 - 2007 FEH and 2006 - 2007 MMH

I Agree. This is what most other auto companies would call a "Voluntary Recall". I guess Ford did not want to use the R word.
