Ford Motor Company is recalling 24 model year 2015-2020 Transit vehicles over faulty parking brake cable.

The automobile manufacturer said that an incorrect driveshaft torsional damper service kit may have been installed, which can allow the damper shield to contact the parking brake cable, possibly resulting in parking brake failure.

Parking brake failure can result in unintended vehicle movement, increasing the risk of a crash, said Ford Motor Company.

In respect of what to do in addressing the defect, the company stated that dealers would replace the passenger side parking brake cable with a cable that provides sufficient clearance to the damper shield free of charge, agency report said.

Meanwhile, affected vehicle owners may contact Ford Customer Service on (866) 436-7332.

Ford’s number for this recall is 21S39.
