Ford Announces Vehicle Campaigns
    DETROIT, May 27 -- Ford Motor Company is notifying
approximately 103,000 owners of 1999 model-year F-250, F-350, F-450 and F-550
Super Duty trucks of a voluntary safety recall involving a steering concern,
and approximately 12,000 owners of 1999 model-year F-350 Super Duty single-
rear-wheel trucks of a parking brake concern.
    For the steering concern, one or more of the rivets on the steering shaft
flexible coupling may not have been properly crimped during manufacture of the
shaft.  This could result in the coupling turning on the shaft and potentially
could result in a reduction or loss of steering capability.  There have been
no reports of accidents or injuries related to this condition.
    In the same vehicle population, Ford is notifying approximately 12,000
owners of certain 1999 model-year F-350 Super Duty single-rear-wheel trucks of
a parking brake concern.  Some of the affected vehicles may not meet a federal
safety standard requirement for the parking brake system.  There have been no
reports of this concern occurring.
    Owners of affected vehicles have been notified by mail to return their
vehicle to their dealer for the appropriate repair procedures.  The work will
be completed at no expense to owners.
