Ford F-Series And Lincoln Continental Recalled Over Cloudy Rear Camera Lens


Ford has issued a recall for select F-Series models and the Lincoln Continental due to an issue with the rear-view camera.

A notice issued with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reveals that an internal lens on the rear-view camera used by impacted vehicles has an anti-reflective coating that is susceptible to damage from exposure to ultraviolet radiation over time.

Ford notes that a rear-view camera with this coating may cause a cloudy or foggy image to be displayed on the vehicle’s infotainment display. This image will progressively deteriorate over time following continued UV exposure. The subject camera was first introduced into production for the F-Series on November 12, 2015 and the Lincoln Continental on November 30, 2015 before being pulled from production on March 10, 2020.

The recall impacts a total of 260,921 Ford F-Series models built between November 12, 2015 and March 10, 2020. More specifically, 139,131 F-250s have been recalled alongside 109,960 F-350s and 14,830 F-450s.

In addition, 2017-2020 Lincoln Continental models built from November 30, 2015 and March 10, 2020 are embroiled in the recall, totaling 13,119 units.

Ford will notify owners of impacted vehicles between September 12 and September 16, instructing them to take their car to a Ford or Lincoln dealership where the rear-view camera will be replaced free of charge. Ford will also reimburse any owners that have previously paid to have the problem fixed before the recall was issued.
