vehicles. The vehicles these were installed in are unknown, therefore are not listed in OASIS.
Note that certain Ford All Weather Floor Mats having either a single hook or double post retention design are included in this Equipment Safety Recall.
REASON FOR THIS EQUIPMENT SAFETY RECALL
An improperly installed Ford all weather floor mat (either not secured to the retention device, double stacked, or secured to a single retention device but grossly out of position) could move and may interfere with the accelerator pedal, potentially inhibiting its return to idle, and increasing the risk of a crash.
A complete Dealer Bulletin will be provided to dealers in July, 2014 when it is anticipated that parts ordering information and repair instructions will be available to support this equipment safety recall.
Until further information is available, dealers should ensure any Ford All Weather Floor Mats in the subject vehicles are installed properly and are not double stacked.
Owners of record will be notified via first-class mail after repair instructions and parts ordering information have been provided to dealers.
