Ford—PJ and PK Ranger - Bonnet Striker Replacement
What are the defects?
There is the possibility that after extended periods of driving in severe road conditions, the bonnet striker may develop a fatigue fracture.
What are the hazards?
Whilst a secondary safety hook will retain the bonnet in the event of a striker failure, continued use in severe road conditions may cause the secondary safety hook to fail which may result in the bonnet opening while driving, hindering the visibility of the driver.
What should consumers do?
Ford will write to owners of all affected vehicles at their last known address. For further information, contact any authorised Ford Dealer or Ford's Customer Relationship Centre on 1800 503 672
