A manual transmission vehicle parked in neutral without a fully applied parking brake may have unintended movement which may cause a crash.

Parking Brake — Driveline — Hydraulic — Actuator

Summary
Ford is recalling certain model year 2010 Ranger vehicles manufactured from June 8, 2009 through February 2, 2010 equipped with manual transmission. It is possible for the parking brake cable to become disconnected from the right rear actuator during cold weather. This may 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.
Actions
Dealers will install a revised right rear parking brake actuator to prevent cable disconnection free of charge. The safety recall began on May 21, 2010. Owners may contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.
