Ford Recalls Rangers With Manual Transmission

May 19, 2010

WASHINGTON - Ford Motor Co. is recalling nearly 3,000 MY 2010 Ranger vehicles equipped with manual transmission. 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the parking brake cable can become disconnected from the right rear actuator during cold weather. This might occur when the parking brake is released if wet parking brake shoes have frozen in the applied position. If the right rear parking brake cable becomes disconnected, the pedal will have extended travel and may not fully apply the parking brake. 

A manual transmission vehicle parked in neutral without a fully applied parking brake may start moving, posing a crash risk. 

The vehicles involved in the recall were all manufactured from June 8, 2009 through Feb. 2, 2010. 

To remedy the problem, dealers will install a revised right rear parking brake actuator to prevent cable disconnection. This will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin this month. 

Vehicle owners can reach Ford at (866) 436-7332.
