Tenneco Automotive Recalls MOOG K500359 Ball Joints Due to Misinstalled Upper Ball Joint

Tenneco Automotive recalled 2,394 MOOG K500359 ball joints, for aftermarket installation on model year 2015-2018 Ford F-150 trucks due to potential safety risk.

The ball joint may have a misaligned dust boot and may be missing the alignment hole and installation warning tag, which may lead to improper alignment of the ball joint.

An incorrectly installed ball joint may cause the ball joint stud to break, which can compromise front wheel control, increasing the risk of a crash.

Tenneco will notify owners, while dealers will inspect, and replace the ball joint, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin May 10, 2021.

There have been no reported incidents to date.
