Ford Announces Vehicle Campaign

    DETROIT, Oct. 31 -- Ford Motor Company will be
voluntarily notifying owners of certain 1994-1996 Mustang vehicles and certain
1995-1996 model-year Windstar vehicles of a safety recall for a hood concern.
    If one of these vehicles has been in a prior frontal collision, the
adhesive band joining the inner and outer hood panel may be damaged which can
allow the exterior part of the hood panel to separate from the vehicle.  Ford
believes this hood separation occurs only after prior collision damage to the
hood.
    Approximately 820,000 vehicles are affected, of which 65,000 are in
Canada.
    Owners will be notified of this recall beginning the week of Nov. 10.
Dealers will inspect vehicles to determine if there is damage.  If there is no
damage, dealers will apply a reinforcing adhesive to the bond.  If any part of
the bond is separated, dealers may replace the hood assembly.  All work will
be completed at no expense to owners.
