Ford Motor Co. is recalling nearly 1.9 million Explorers over a piece of trim that can detach from the vehicle and pose a hazard to other drivers.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in a letter to the automaker that a detached piece of trim could become a “road hazard” and increase the risk of a crash.

Some clips attaching the trim to the exterior of the vehicle between the front windows and the windshield “are not properly engaged due to improper assembly or repair,” the company said, which can cause the A-pillar trim to come loose or fully detach.
