Ford is now working with Meridian to shift production of the affected parts to other suppliers until production can resume at the fire-damaged plant.

A spokeswoman said Friday that Ford has notified employees they could return to work in a week in Dearborn, Michigan, and Kansas City, Missouri.

The Super Duty assembly line in Louisville, Kentucky was not named, but that plant continues building Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator sport utility vehicles, even while pickup production is suspended. The fire shut down production at two of Ford's plants, but according to sources, production could resume as early as May 18.

Why Eurovision is so much more than a song contest
Australia turned up in style with Guy Sebastian (the Aussie equivalent of Bruno Mars) and finished, impressively, in fifth place. It is also unclear how the ban affects the planned Eurovision Asia Song Contest in which China is expected to participate.

The production downtime is tipped to affect Q2 profits at Ford, but the company hasn't changed its outlook for the year. That includes some larger trucks than the F-150, although the F-150 makes up the overwhelming majority of those sales.

A spokesperson for Ford tells CNBC, "We are working closely with the supplier to manage the situation". "But when you have a vehicle that comprises a quarter of your company's sales, any production disruption is going to cause some consternation". At this point there is no word on just how long production of the F-150 will be halted, a Ford spokesman has said that it would last at least a few days.

Ford has sold 287,000 F Series trucks in the United States in the first four months of this year, up 4% compared to a year ago.
