In affected vehicles, the attachment bracket for the second-row driver’s side headrest may not have been sufficiently welded to the seat frame.
An improperly welded headrest bracket may have reduced strength and may not adequately restrain an occupant in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition.
