Ford Motor Company is recalling select 2021 Ford F-150 models due to issues related to the two-piece driveshaft.

The defect: in affected vehicles, the circlip used to secure the connection between the two driveshaft halves may not have been properly installed, potentially affecting the connection of the two halves.

The hazards: an improperly assembled driveshaft could separate, resulting in a loss of power without warning while driving, or unintended vehicle movement in park if the parking brake is not applied, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford is not aware of any reports of accidents or injuries related to this condition.

Components: two-piece driveshaft.

Had mine checked last week. It was on the VIN list but the serial number on the driveshaft wasn't.

Mine was on list. Passed dealers inspection today. No action required I guess. They had to send photos to Ford to confirm so we will see.
