Found out not all the dealers have heard. Called St Thomas Ford today, have to wait for the letter to the dealers. But due that I phoned them. They will give me a call even before I get the recall letter.
Was told, they may/maynot replace them. It will be a judgement call. I told them, I was told by Ford the will be replaced. Have an in, BinL works for Ford. He called me about it.

The Ultimate Off Road vehicle is 64 Tons, Tan/Green, has a 120MM Cannon , a crew of 4 and can make popcorn.
It's a LEOPARD TANK
My new one 2003 Larit FX4, 5.4.

I had mine changed and the tank on my dime. I got a call from the NHTSA in the US about my complaint and they asked if they could pass it on to Transport Canada, I got a call from Transport Canada, explained my issues with the guy, he said they were opening an investigation and just over a week later they do the recall. I was told by Ford Canada that if you paid to have this issue fixed you need to take it to a Ford dealer, they inspect the repair to make sure it was done correctly. They take copies of your paper work send them to Ford and you get reimbursed that way.


Whaddya mean I dont pay my bills?? Whydya think I'm broke!!
