the problem: if a front seat belt pretensioner deploys as the result of a crash, the sparks may ignite materials such as carpeting or insulation within the b-pillar area, increasing the risk of fire.
the fix: dealers will remove the b-pillar insulation material and wiring harness tape, and install heat resistant tape, for free.
what owners should do: ford will begin notifying owners sept. 24. owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332, the national highway traffic safety administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
