Ford Taurus Owners Manual: Floor mats

WARNING: Always use floor mats that are designed to fit the


WARNING:

Always use floor mats that are designed to fit the foot well of your vehicle, leaving the pedal area unobstructed, and which can be firmly secured to retention posts so that they cannot slip out of position and interfere with the pedals or impair safe operation of your vehicle in other ways.

• Incorrectly fitted floor mats can cause the accelerator pedal to become stuck in the open position. This can cause loss of vehicle control.

• Always correctly install the floor mats to the retention posts so that they cannot slip out of position or obstruct pedal operation.

• Do not place unsecured floor mats or any other covering in the foot well.

• Do not place additional floor mats or any other covering on top of the original floor mats. This will reduce the pedal clearance and interfere with the pedal operation.

• Do not allow objects to fall or become trapped under the pedals of your vehicle. This can cause loss of vehicle control.

• Carry out regular inspections to make sure the floor mats are secure.

To install the floor mats, position the floor mat eyelet over the retention post and press down to lock in position.

Remove in reverse order.
