CUSTOMER SATISFACTION PROGRAM 07B49
AWARENESS COMMUNICATION - All 2005 and 2006 Ford GT Vehicles - Output Shaft Flange Bolt and Washer Replacement
INFORMATION ONLY - Upcoming Field Service Action
And the full text:

Reason for this communication
To inform you that Ford Motor Company will be launching a customer satisfaction program in December of 2007. Updated parts are not currently available to complete this repair. Once parts are available, a full dealer bulletin will be posted on FMCDealer.com. You may receive questions from customers about this customer satisfaction program. This notice will help you answer customer questions.

Reason for this Customer Satisfaction Program
In some of the affected vehicles, the output shaft flange attachment bolts may fracture, typically when the vehicle is stopped and power is applied, which may result in a lack of drive.

Affected Vehicles
All 2005 and 2006 Ford GT vehicles built at the Wixom Assembly Plant from Job #1 through Job Last.

Service Action
It is anticipated that the complete dealer bulletin announcing this upcoming action will be provided to dealers in December 2007, once updated parts to repair this condition are available. In the meantime, dealers can service affected vehicles that experience fractured output shaft flange attachment bolts by following Special Service Message (SSM) 19561

Customer Notification
Owners of affected vehicles will not be notified until after dealers have received service repairs and parts ordering information. It is anticipated that customer notification will begin in December of 2007.
Updated with full message.

:cheers

The replacement part is done, I'm trying to get a picture of it sometime in the next day or two.:cheers
When you say "replacement part" does that mean it's more than just harder bolts? What part is it (or is it a secret)?:lol

I'm just going to leave my Accufab bolts in. I've never heard of one breaking, so I'm gonna leave well enough alone.

I should have the full text of what dealers are supposed to do and when shortly.

Bony---- What This means is that if you had purchased your GT through me you would have access to my summer home in Nuevo Laredo during the month of July when not being used by Drug Lords. Your friend Tomy

I agree with Dave, I think my Accufab bolts will likely stay put. But I will certainly take a look at what Ford has to offer.

MY Dealer called me today and read the email from Ford to me. From what I remember it said that the parts would be available December and furthur information of obtaining the parts and performing the repair would be coming from Ford to the Dealership. Also it mentioned that owners of the cars would receive a letter from Ford.
