Re: Damage When Front Spring Breaks
If a coil spring breaks and causes damage to the tire, rim, link pin, or any other part Ford will cover the costs of the repair. The Dealership just has to call in for prior approval of the estimate. I had one that messed up the axle and Ford requested pictures of the damaged axle, but they still covered the parts.
There are 2 recalls.................
One is to install shields if they are not broke.
The other is to replace both springs if any front springs break during the extended recall period.
If shields go on and a spring breaks 2 weeks later, the spring is still covered. If the spring breaks, they are replaced with the updated part and no shields installed.
