Component:
Equipment
Summary:
This recall involves aftermarket parts sold by yakima products, inc. for use on model year 2012 and 2013 ford focus vehicles. this recall is being conducted by yakima, not by ford. certain combined q-tower and q128 clip rooftop rack systems, part numbers 8000124 and 8000728, do not fully contact the door frame.
Consequence:

How to Fix:
Yakima will notify owners, and yakima or a yakima dealer will refund the purchase of the q-tower and q-128 clip system. there is no replacement system available for the 2012-2013 model year ford focus. the safety recall began on october 15, 2012. only vehicles equipped with the vehicle rack system are affected. this recall is being conducted by yakima, not ford. owners may contact yakima at 1-888-925-4621.
