Summary: Equipment description: Passenger vehicles that have had the driver's air bag module replaced after April 5, 2000. The replacement driver's air bag module inflator may have insufficient welds that could prevent proper inflation of the air bag.
Consequence: In the event of a crash, the driver's air bag may not properly deploy which could potentially result in less than the intended level of occupant protection.
Actions: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the driver's air bag module. Owner notification began October 5, 2001.

1995 Lincoln Town Car SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM:LOWER BALL JOINT NHTSA Campaign #98V322000
Summary: Vehicle description: Certain 1996-1999 Ford Crown Victoria police, fleet, natural gas, and 1996-1999 Lincoln Town car limousine vehicles that were produced with a lower control arm ball joint containing a one piece bearing; and 1990-1996 Ford Crown Victoria police, fleet, and ngv vehicles and 1990-1996 Lincoln Town car limousine vehicles that have been serviced with either a ball joint containing the one-piece bearing or a front lower control arm containing a ball joint with a one-piece bearing. The one-piece bearing within the lower control arm ball joint can weaken slowly during use and eventually crack. This could result in separation of the ball and cap of the joint, allowing the control arm to drop to the ground.
Consequence: If this occurs while the vehicle is moving, reduced steering control could occur, increasing the risk of a crash.
Actions: Dealers will replace the lower control arm ball joints (2). For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #98V322000 »
1995 Lincoln Town Car SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:FOUNDATION COMPONENTS:HOSES, LINES/PIPING, AND FITTINGS NHTSA Campaign #98I001000
Summary: This is not a safety recall in accordance with federal regulation 573. However, it is deemed a safety improvement campaign by the Agency. Ford is initiating an owner notification program for owners of certain 1995-1997 Crown Victoria model vehicles with police, taxi, and commercial fleet packages and Town car vehicles with the livery package. These vehicles may have insufficient clearance between the brake line and the underbody front floor pan assembly which could cause wear of the brake lines.
Consequence: This could lead to brake fluid loss for the rear brakes and, potentially, increased stopping distances.
Actions: Dealers will inspect the brake lines for wear, install two new tube bundle clips, and check the brake lines for proper clearances. If the brake lines are worn, the damaged section of the brake line will be replaced. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #98I001000 »
1995 Lincoln Town Car STEERING:LINKAGES NHTSA Campaign #96V135000
Summary: The pitman arms were not fully lubricated at the assembly plant. The "ball joint" at the outer end of the pitman arm can become contaminated and corrode.
Consequence: Such corrosion can result in abnormal wear of the joint, resulting in separation of the joint. Loss of steering control can occur increasing the risk of a vehicle accident.
Actions: Dealers will inspect the vehicles and if the joint is found to have significant wear, the arm will be replaced. Those pitman arms not replaced will have the "ball joint" fully greased.

1995 Lincoln Town Car SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:FOUNDATION COMPONENTS:HOSES, LINES/PIPING, AND FITTINGS NHTSA Campaign #95V133000
Summary: Improper installation of the rear brake line at the point at which the extended brake line first bends and extends over the left rear wheel area of the frame. If not installed with sufficient clearance, chafing of the brake line can occur in an area adjacent to the rear floor pan.
Consequence: The rear brake line can leak or rupture resulting in reduced braking capability, loss of rear brakes, and/or loss of brake fluid reserves in the master brake cylinder.
Actions: Dealers will inspect the brake line for proper installation and/or damage and replace as necessary. Also a protective boot or sleeve over the brake line will be installed. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #95V133000 »

Summary: The seal material between the fuel filler pipe and fuel tank may not have been fully cured during the molding process which could allow for fuel leakage.
Consequence: Fuel leakage could result in a vehicle fire if an ignition source were present.
Actions: Dealers will replace the fuel filler pipe-to-fuel tank seal with a new seal of different material. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #95V063000 »
1995 Lincoln Town Car AIR BAGS:FRONTAL NHTSA Campaign #95E006002
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.
