Recall Question

Okay, so I got the mail today, and Ford Tells me I'm due for my 45k Checkup (would have been nice about 3000 Miles ago). But anyways, they gave me a reminder about the 02S32 recall on the 02 FX4 Rear Axles.

Question is, if they are sending this reminder about the recall, has it been done yet? It'd be neat if it hasnt, who wouldnt go for a new Axle? I'm going to call tommorow when I get my VIN number, but until then I'm pretty excited.

Anyone know?

if it HAS been done the recall SHOULD NOT have been sent to you, so I am guessing it has NOT been done yet, once all the paper work goes through Ford it "FINISHES" the recall campaign for that vehicle. Id go and get it checked out ... free axle hell yes!

NEAT! I wonder if they use 0 Mile axles, or rebuilt ones from the recalls? Either way, good as new. Not 48k!

The original recall from 2002MY was for new replacement axle assemblies. If yours has been replaced already, it is supposed to have a purple tag on it. If your truck was produced later in the model year, it should already have the improved Torsen.

If I call with my VIN, they should be able to tell me, right?
