Ford Australia has announced that it’s Ranger ute is being recalled regarding an issue with manual transmission-equipped vehicles.

Following Mazda’s announcement for the mechanically similar BT-50, Ford’s Ranger also features a cable retaining clip that isn’t fully engaged. Should the clip fail the gearshift cables have the potential to contact the propeller shaft.

Damage may occur to both the cable and propeller shaft, and it may become more difficult to change gears, or a loss of drive may occur posing a crash risk to occupants and other road users.

Ford says that there have been no reported instances of failed parts in Australia.

Affected vehicles were sold between June 2015 and February 2016 with owners to be contacted by Ford in writing. Anyone wishing to know more can contact Ford Customer Relations on 1800 503 672.
