Ford Motor Co. is recalling 167 2016 model-year Ford F-650 and F-750 trucks in the U.S. to replace the rear air brake chamber.

“The air brake jounce hoses could contact the vehicle’s rear axle housing during vehicle operation, which could cause a leak and inadvertent application of the parking brake or diminished braking performance – increasing the risk of a crash,” the automaker said in a press release. 

Ford added that it isn’t aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue.

The recall affects trucks built at Ohio Assembly Plant from June 18 through Nov. 15 of this year. In addition to the trucks in the U.S., 10 trucks in Canada are also covered.

Ford dealers will install a rear air brake chamber replacement at no cost to the customer. Dealers also will inspect the vehicle brakes and parking brake air lines for damage, and replace them as needed, the automaker said.
