VEHICLE SAFETY RECALL
for Australian Product Recall Information
Ford Motor Company of Australia Limited is recalling immediately Ranger models as described below.
Applicable Vehicle Application / Affected Dates
Certain PXII Ranger vehicles fitted with a manual transmission and built from June 5, 2015 through
February 12, 2016.
Note: The build date of the Ranger (month and year) can be found on the Vehicle Identification Label
which is located on the Driver Side B Pillar.
On some vehicles, there is a possibility that the gearshift cable retaining clip may not be securely
fastened, which could lead to the gearshift cables making contact with the rear driveshaft. Continued
contact between the gearshift cables and driveshaft can damage both components, and could result in
difficulty changing gears or loss of drive.
Action Required by Owners
An owner of a recalled vehicle should, as soon as possible, arrange with an Authorised Ford Dealer to
have their vehicle inspected for signs of contact between the gearshift cables and driveshaft. If there
is any sign of contact, both parts will be replaced. The dealer will also check that the gearshift cable
retaining clip is securely fastened. If the clip is not securely fastened, a new clip will be installed. This
service will be performed free of charge (parts and labour) by any Authorised Ford Dealer. If an owner
does not already have a servicing Ford Dealer, the nearest Authorised Ford Dealer can be located at
www.ford.com.au. Each registered owner will be notified by letter from Ford of the actions to be taken to
arrange for this service.
