The Problem: 2013 Lincoln MKTs equipped with the Limousine or Hearse Preparation Package may have been transported with rear brake rotor bolts that are improperly seated, allowing the head to protrude above the wheel-mounting surface. The raised bolt head could lead to torque loss in the wheel joint, potentially leading to wheel separation and a crash.
The Fix: Notices were mailed out on May 24, 2012 and all affected vehicles have been quarantined at the facilities of Lincoln’s coach builders. All vehicles will be repaired before final delivery.
Number of Affected Vehicles: 128 2013 Lincoln MKTs built between March 6, 2012 and April 3, 2012 are affected by this recall.
