New Ford GT recalled to inspect hydraulic fluid leak

2017 Ford GT

Ford has issued a recall for approximately 200 select units of the second generation Ford GT models manufactured between Dec. 20, 2016 and July 31, 2018, to inspect a hydraulic fluid leak from the valve block assembly located underneath the rear wing onto the exhaust, which may cause a fire.

Ford said that the company is aware of one such incident that occurred in Germany with no injuries. There are approximately 194 vehicles in North America relating to this concern, with 176 in the United States and 18 in Canada. The Ford reference number for this recall is 18S29.

Dealers will perform a software update, which eliminates the possibility of excessive pressure in the valve block assembly. Some vehicles will have a rear wing hydraulic check valve installed and will have o-rings and filter replaced, if needed.
