The letter saying they now have parts arrived in late January. We were in the middle of a move - so waited until early Feb to see our new Ford dealer. Nobody there knew anything about the recall - but they were happy to learn.
It took about 3 weeks for the Ford dealer in Indiana - near South Bend - to get the replacement part. The parts manager was super nice, they actually called me when the part arrived. The thing lists for $650. Had to go into the dealer to pick up the part - took about 30 minutes because they've never seen anything like that before and weren't real sure what to do.
The new EVSE is amazing - really gorgeous piece of equipment. Way better than the original.
Yes they do take the old one from you. It is a trade in program. I think they cut the cord and send it back to Ford (or dispose of it).
I have two of the recalled parts. The first one is linked to the car VIN. The second one, they weren't sure what Ford wanted to do. So I'm waiting for a call from the dealer. They expect the second one will be replaced also. Ford wants these taken out of use.
The whole exchange was kind of funny. The guy asked me, is the car here (I drove into the service bay with a green Tesla). I said, no you don't really need the car, it's just a swap for this thing. He smiled, went away, and had about three other people help figure out how to do the paper work. Essentially, it took about 30 minutes for them to do the paper work. (drove the Tesla because we are new to the area, the Nav really sucks on the FFE, and we didn't want to get lost).
Bottom line - you don't have to take your car in for this recall. Just take the letter and they will figure it all out.
