Ford Motor Co. issued four recalls for a variety of safety defects on multiple vehicles that include more than 140,000 F-150 Crew Cab, F-250 and F-350 Super Duty Crew Cab pickup trucks.

The company said no crashes or injuries have been reported for any of the vehicles involved in the recalls announced Thursday.

The company is issuing a safety compliance recall for approximately 141,000 2015-2017 Ford F-150 Crew Cab pickups and 2017 F-250 and F-350 Super Duty Crew Cab trucks because of a possible problem with the left rear inflatable seatbelt assembly.

In affected vehicles, a rivet may come loose from its mounting bracket during a crash, which may result in an injury.

The F-150 Crew Cab pickups were built at the Dearborn and Kansas City Assembly plants from July 20, 2015 to June 16, 2017. The2017 Ford Super Duty trucks were built at the Kentucky Truck Plant from Oct. 20, 2015, to June 16, 2017.

The recall includes approximately 117,423 trucks sold in the U.S. and federalized territories, 15,715 in Canada and 8,202 in Mexico.

If a problem is found with the rivet, Ford will replace the seat belt buckle assembly at no charge.

The company is also recalling 935 2017 Ford F-150s and Mustang sports cars to fix a problem with the airbags.

In affected vehicles, the passenger airbag module could rupture during a crash, resulting in metal fragments “striking vehicle occupants,” which could cause serious injury or death. Ford was notified of the possible defect by Takata, an airbag supplier.

Dealers will replace the passenger airbag modules.

The affected F-150 pickups were built at the Kansas City Assembly Plant and the Ford Mustangs were built at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant from July 20, 2017, to Aug. 1, 2017.

A second safety recall has been issued for approximately 263 2017 Ford Explorers SUVs, Taurus and Police Interceptor Utility and Sedan vehicles because of a possible problem with incorrect steering gear heat shield fasteners.

Additionally, Ford issued a safety compliance recall on approximately 835 2017 Ford Focus vsedans because of a potential welding problem with the outboard pivot bracket and the pivot nut joint in the second-row left-side seatback frame.
