This may result in a crack in the joint which could cause fuel to leak out and start a fire.

Dealers will replace the fuel tank free of charge. Owners may contact Ford Motor Company Customer Relationship Center at 1-866-436-7332. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
