Ford Recall 11C15: Center Recliner Mechanism/FMVSS 207

2011 Ford Explorer Seal Of This Might Hurt

In the event of a crash, the seat back may not provide the required strength, increasing the risk of injury.


Ford is recalling certain model year 2011 Explorer vehicles manufactured from July 15, 2010, through December 13, 2010, equipped with second row 60% seats with manual recliner mechanisms that may have components that are out of dimensional specification. These seats fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 207, "seating systems."
Ford will notify owners and dealers will repair the seats free of charge. The safety recall began on February 15, 2011. Owners may contact Ford Motor Company customer relationship center at 1-866-436-7332.
