Ford Truck Safety Recalls



Build Years/Makes/Models: 1979 FORD F250
Units affected: 500
Recall Number: 79V201000
Owner Notification Date: October 30, 1979
Recall Creation Date: December 12, 1979
Component Description: Service Brakes, Hydraulic: Foundation Components: Disc: Rotor
Manufacturer Involved in This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Manufacturer Responsible for This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Report Received Date: November 2, 1979
Summary: Dimensional differences in the 1980 versus the 1979 assemblies may allow the inner brake lining/shoe to move outward to a position where it is no longer retained in the shoe slot when the front brake inner linings become worn to the point of needing replacement. The inner brake shoe could then wedge between the rotor and spindle, possibly causing a sudden lock-up of one front wheel. This can occur without brake application and would adversely affect steering control. These dimensional differences could also allow additional travel of the brake piston such that a loss of brake fluid from the front brake system may occur. This would result in increased stopping distances.
Consequence: Loss of steering control along with increased stopping distances could result in an accident.
Remedy: The dealer will inspect and, if necessary, replace the hub and rotor assemblies and spindle seals.

Vehicle description: Light trucks with 6200 and 6900 lb GVWR and equipped with two wheel drive and standard front brakes.
