I Am Proud Owner Of ford 1998 F150 V8 Xlt 2wd. I Do Most My Truck’s Maintenance At Home. As I Was Rotating My Tires Last Night, One Of Front Left-hand Side Wheel Bolt Snapped As I Was Turning A Nut On It. The Lug Nut Was Loose And It Was Kept Turning. I Was Very Disappointed At The Fact That The Bolt Easily Broke While Using Little Force By Hands. This Is My Second ford And I Never Had This Kind Of Problem Before. So I Decided To Go To The ford Website And I Found Out That There Was A Recall For My Truck On The Wheel Nuts. However I Did Not Get Any Information Until After The Tire Rotation. So I Called The Puente Hills ford Dealership If I Take My Truck To The Dealership So They Can Repair Broken Wheel Bolt Due To Already Recalled Nut. And The Dealership Said That They Are Not Responsible For The Broken Bolt. They Will Charge Me About $73.00 For The Repair. But If They Contacted Me For The Recall I Would Not Have This Kind Of Problem. The Reason Why The ford Company Recalled The Lug Nut Is That The Lug Nuts Came Loose For My Truck And That Is Exactly Problem I Was Having. And That Is Why I Was Turning The Nut On The Bolt Until The Point When It Snapped. I Drove fords All My Life And I Think The Dealership Is Trying To Avoid Their Responsibility. Please Help Me.*ak
