While at Ford dealer for correction of a safety recall issue I requested the dealer to check vehicle over and to determine if my vehicle's rear brake caliper anchor plate or brackeds were intalled incorrectly (as there is/was a tsb issued for this model and my van was included. The tsb # is 15-0190. Inspection of my vehicle revealed that my vehicle does in fact have this abnormnal assembly (the right sided bracket is upside down on the left side and the left sided plate is installed on the right. Because my vehicle does not at this time appear to be exhibiting uneven brake wear and it has 41500 miles Ford does not cover or require a repair and I was told I would need to have a brake job done at estimated cost of $825 during which would allow the anchor plates to be corrected. I feel this tsb should be upgraded to a recall to correct this misassembly which may affect the brake performance of my vehicle in the future. I was told I am out of warrantee by time and mileage and because my vehicle has not yet been exhibiting uneven brake wear that Ford did not have an obligation to fix it as it involves a tsb rather than a recall. My vehicle was one of the first built with assembly date 4/2014. I feel that this should be made a recall if that is what it will require to make Ford correct this. I simply want my vehicle put together the way it was supposed to have been and to prevent brake issues from occuring.

Our driver was driving on the beltway when his brakes locked up on him. We dropped if off to the shop to have a look and found the right rear caliper was faulty. Since we were unable to get the truck to the dealer ( the truck is still under warranty). We had the shop replace the faulty caliper. So we could get the truck back on the road. Now I need to know why this is not a recall "brakes" are certainly a safety issue! and how do I go about trying to get reimbursed for the charges for this?
