    Default 2.2 Recall : Glowplugs

    Recently took delivery of a new Everest 2.2. Dealership said I must bring it back for glowplug fix campaign. On Ford recall website they only state below details:

    Recall 17B40
    INSPECT/REPLACE GLOW PLUGS AND REPROGRAM PCM

    Does anyone have more details around this fix?

    2018 Ford Everest 2.2 XLS 2x4 auto (SWAMBO)

    Certain Rangers and Everest vehicles built between specific dates needs to be checked as incorrect glowplug operation due to pcm fault may leed to premature glowplug failure. Needs a new pcm update. If glowplugs shows signs of failure glowplugs gets replaced. If glowplug tip breaks off you get new cylinder head.

    I took delivery last month. They confirmed mine was not affected.
    Best thing is probably to contact the dealer. I spoke to the Salesman and Service manager and they confirmed by email that there were "no outstanding campaigns for your vehicle".
    Now it is in writing and that is all I need.

    I'm currently driving a loan 3.2 XLT AUTO DC in Mozambique and the VIN shows the campaign. This one is a late June 2017 build.
    A September 2017 build that's also here does not have the campaign.

    This is the built dates off affected vehicles. Also the dealer should pick it up when taken in for service.
