It does make a difference now that I updated the dates on my timeline correctly but still does not fall under CSP22B34 dates of affected vehicles. Will see what they do. When I talked to the dealer they were going to change out the shafts on both sides per CSP22B34.

I originally did not have the year on the dates of order, pickup, etc. After the first of the year, I figured I should add the year so there was no confusion. Stupid me however put down 2023 instead of 2022. My 2023 was a year old on Sunday, December 10, 2023.
Mine is outside of the dates too and both sides broke and have been replaced

Oppps, never noticed I put 2023 in the date when I updated my signature. Thanks for pointing that out. I changed it to 2022. That might make more sense. My bad!!!!
Oh that changes the view a bit. Doesn't help you but provides hope for those with 2023s (I am not one of them). Any idea of your build date?

Got my truck back from the dealer last night. They only replaced the axle shaft with the broken bolt. Did not change out the bolt or axle shaft on the driver's side. When I asked them they said Ford would not cover the warranty work on the driver's side because it did not fall within the date of Customer Satisfaction Program 22B34. I understand it is not the dealer's fault. However, Ford should have applied CSP22B34 as there is still a problem with the rearends. It happened at 18.5K miles, which is the average mileage for all the affected axles. I am still very happy with my truck but I shake my head with the logic behind some of the repairs.

Guess I will buy my bolts and replace the driver's side before it breaks.

I did not see the part # for the bolts on the invoice or CSR22B34. Would assume this is part of the axle shaft parts.

There's a part# in one of the axle threads posted to recently. I'll see if I can dig it up.

I decided to proactively replace the bolts. LH went good, but the RH broke off after a couple turns. Guess I'll let the dealer do the CSP now.

Did it break going in or coming out?

Man would I have liked to have seen a picture of the end of your axle when you removed that bolt.
Was the axle flush with the shoulder of the hub?
And the one that snapped, same question? It appears that it broke further down into the axle than many we have seen.

Looks like it broke about where the loctite is applied the the picture you provided of the new bolts. Just my uneducated opinion.

edit: maybe just a thread or two closer to the bolt head now that I look at it again.

This is the only pic I took of the axle. Both sides looked the same and were not flush with the hub.

I'm trying to decide if I want to take mine in to have them do the CSP, or just install the new bolts I've had for over a year and call it good.
I waited 80 days to have both my axles replaced.

Thanks for the picture.
I'm always wondering why all these pics with broken or removed bolts show the axle NOT flush with the hub. It seems like as you torque the bolt it would draw the axle up against the washer and hub shoulder.
Or put another way, I have yet to see anything about the axle shaft itself that would stop it from coming outboard enough to seat against the bolt. So why are most of the pictures showing the axle inboard a few centimeters?

I guess it's possible that the axle wants to move inboard if the fastener/bolt isn't holding it from moving?
