Ford Motor Co. is recalling 19,825 2014 model-year Transit Connect cargo vans because an exterior plastic panel on the sliding door might loosen and eventually even separate from the vehicle.

The loosening of the panel can also result in noise or water leaks. Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the condition.

The vans were all built at the Valencia Assembly Plant from Aug. 9 of last year to Sept. 20 of this year. Some are two-panel vans, while others are one-panel. They are all located in the U.S. and federalized territories.

To fix the problem, dealers will remove and reinstall the sliding door plastic panels using proper materials and procedures, Ford said. There will be no charge for this service.
