  1. 1995 Ford Contour SUSPENSION NHTSA Campaign #08E033000

    • Date Announced: APRIL 14, 2008
    • Vehicles Affected: 6,903

    Summary: Federal mogul is recalling 6,903 aftermarket ball joint assemblies shipped between November 9, 2007 and March 26, 2008, which may have been packaged with incorrect nuts. The part numbers packaged with incorrect nuts are: K7147, K7329, K8683, and 104353. These parts were made for use on the various vehicles listed above.

    Consequence: The nuts included in the packaging for these ball joint assemblies are missing the intended prevailing torque (self-locking) feature. If the incorrect nut was to become loose, the joining members may loosen leading to a separation of the ball joint. This may result in loss of vehicle control, possibly resulting in a vehicle crash.

    Actions: Federal mogul will notify owners and replace the parts free of charge. The recall began on May 22, 2008. Owners can contact federal mogul at 877-489-6659. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #08E033000 »

  2. 1995 Ford Contour SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC NHTSA Campaign #06E022000

    • Date Announced: MARCH 13, 2006
    • Vehicles Affected: 7,440

    Summary: Certain aftermarket brake hydraulic master cylinders sold as replacement brake cylinders for certain Ford, DaimlerChrysler, and Jeep passenger vehicles. These brake cylinders were sold under the brand names of Napa, raybestos, aimco, ac delco, Carquest, bendix, and wagner. Only products that were manufactured from July 27, 2005 through January 17, 2006 (date codes 0529 through 0602) are subject to this recall. When subject to very cold temperatures, an internal seal in the master cylinder could lose flexibility and may cause brake fluid to leak.

    Consequence: Loss of brake fluid can lead to a decrease in brake line pressure and an increase in stopping distance, which can result in a vehicle crash.

    Actions: Affinia (brake parts, Inc.) will replace the subject brake hydraulic master cylinders free of charge. The recall began on March 20, 2006. Owners can contact affina group customer service at 1-800-323-0354. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #06E022000 »

  3. 1995 Ford Contour VISIBILITY:DEFROSTER/DEFOGGER SYSTEM:WINDSHIELD:CONTROLS/WIRING NHTSA Campaign #01I009000

    • Date Announced: JULY 09, 2001
    • Vehicles Affected: 566,979

    Summary: This is not a safety recall in accordance with the Safety Act. However, it is deemed a safety improvement campaign by the Agency. Vehicle description: 1995-1997 Ford Contour and Mercury Mystique vehicles. The heater blower resistor could overheat causing the attached electrical connector to melt.

    Consequence: This could create the potential for a fire.

    Actions: Ford will provide additional warranty coverage for the heater blower switch for 10 years from original date of sale of the vehicle or 150,000 miles, whichever comes first. Dealers will install a new heater blower resistor and a new wire jumper harness free of charge.

  4. 1995 Ford Contour ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING NHTSA Campaign #00V367000

    • Date Announced: NOVEMBER 06, 2000
    • Vehicles Affected: 262,559

    Summary: Vehicle description: 1995 passenger vehicles equipped with the 2.0L and 2.5L engines, and 1996 vehicles equipped with 2.5L engines. Tightening of the engine cooling fan motor bearings, up to and including motor stall, can result in increased motor torque and higher than normal motor current and accompanying high motor temperatures.

    Consequence: Overheating of the cooling fan motor due to excessive current can result in smoke and odors from bearing grease, insulation and other internal motor components. If electrical current continues to be applied to the motor, internal motor components could ignite possibly igniting other engine compartment components.

    Actions: Dealers will install a positive temperature coefficient device in-line with each fan motor. Ford will also extend the warranty on the engine cooling fan assembly to a total of 8 years of service or 100,000 miles from the warranty start date, whichever occurs first. If the vehicle already has more than 100,000 miles, this coverage will last until July 31, 2001.

  8. 1995 Ford Contour SEAT BELTS:FRONT:ANCHORAGE NHTSA Campaign #95V228000

    • Date Announced: DECEMBER 04, 1995
    • Vehicles Affected: 229,500

    Summary: Cracks have been found in the front safety belt outboard anchor tabs due to a combination of hydrogen embrittlement of the tab and stress introduced during attachment of the anchor tab to the seat frame. This does not conform with the requirements of FMVSS no. 210, "seat belt assembly anchorages."

    Consequence: Consequence of non-compliance: A fracture or separation in this area would reduce the load that the anchor and the front safety belt anchorages could sustain, increasing the risk of injury in a vehicle collisoin.

    Actions: Dealers will inspect and install an anchor tab reinforcement or replacement of the complete front seat belt assembly if an anchor tab is found to have fractured. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #95V228000 »

    • Date Announced: FEBRUARY 24, 1995
    • Vehicles Affected: 8,600

    Summary: The passenger side air bag has an inflator body that cracked during forming of the curl that retains the igniter plug in the end of the inflator. Also the igniter end cap can separate from the inflator.

    Consequence: The passenger side air bag may not inflate properly resulting in reduced occupant protection in a vehicle accident. If the igniter end cap separates in a frontal collision, hot gases can be released and ignite flammable material or cause burn injuries.

    Actions: Dealers will remove and replace the passenger side air bag module. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #95E006002 »
