Ford TSB 05/29/2021: 2021 Ford F-150 Steering Gear Recall

Just uncovered some news about a Ford Technical Service Bulletin advising of a relatively small (for now) recall of 2021 Ford F-150s.

The bulletin was posted via YouTube from user FordTechMakuloco.

Issued on May 29th, the TSB is listed to affect 217 Ford F-150 trucks built at the Dearborn plant from November 4th, 2020 through May 20th, 2021 as well as truck’s built the Claycomo in plant from October 29th 2020 through April 15th, 2021. So basically anyone who already has their truck could possibly be affected.

The bulletin also has verbiage in it that appears the affected vehicles could be placed under a “stop sale” (delivery hold) status that have not yet been sold.

Here is the video detailing the full TSB:


I’ve also attached a few screenshots of the what appears to be the official Ford Technical Service Bulletin for quick reference below.

Well that's certainly something I'd like to avoid... Wonder what the heck it was for there to be such a tiny list of affected trucks.

For those of you wondering if your F-150 is possibly affected by this recall, you can check the status of your vehicle in the FordPass app by doing the following:

My FordPass app doesn't even display a Service and Support tab when viewing the "Vehicle" tab.

My truck has never received an OTA update, either.

I'm convinced the damn computer system doesn't even work right.

I was beginning to wonder too. I finally got my first update about a week ago.

Do you see this in your FordPass app?

Under vehicle tab (in blue). Move the slider (mid screen) to “Service & Support”.

Here is the full list of affected VINs...
She’s not in there so far.... It was a little concerning in the video that he said these recalls usually start very small and grow over the coming days.... we shall see.
