That's corrosion. You can't fix it permanently. You have to replace it.

Got my recall notice 2 weeks ago. They said, "Don't call us, we'll call you". But, I understand it's not Ford's fault. If you don't have parts, it's a difficult fix!

My dealer called today and they have me scheduled in for August 5. They said they won't know what it will require until they sand through the paint and verify corrosion. That's OK because I do know....

I'll have to disagree with that. Bottom line is, most airbags will never be deployed regardless of whether or not the inflators might fail. Then, you have to factor in that 99% of the inflators are...

My 2014 5.0 had the pinion seal replaced at about 15K. It was found and fixed at the 15K service. No noise, no spots in the driveway. Those little spring loaded seals are notorious for failure.

The trouble with one-size-fit-all formulas is that...
