Ford Motor Company will begin recalling 37,734 imported vehicles due to a steering problem on Nov. 30, China's consumer quality authority said Tuesday.

Ford China has filed the plan to recall Explorer sport utility vehicles manufactured between November 2012 and June 2016 with the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.

The steering gear dust cover may become blocked after continuous low-speed driving in dusty conditions, which could lead to contaminants getting into the steering gear unit if the dust cover becomes damaged, the company said.

There could also be abnormal noise or a steering booster power decline when the wheel is turned, and in some cases the steering booster may fail to work, the company said.

The company will check the dust covers on affected vehicles and replace faulty parts.
