Just had a letter for a safety recall on my 17 plate Titanium TDCI for the front lower control arm weld integrity. Apparently some don't meet the specification which could cause the weld to fail causing the front wheel assembly to hit the wheelhouse and/or wheel fender which may cause the front wheel to lock up, affecting steering control as well as the loss of propulsion, should the driveshaft detach from the transmission.
Quite a major concern but my local dealer can't fit me in to check it until next week.

If anyone is not sure that their car is affected, check the build dates of cars affected below or contact your Ford dealership.
