Vehicle Recall - BSN

(Best Syndication News) - The Department of Transportation's NHTSA division announced a Ford recall for certain 2012 Focus vehicles, because the passenger windshield wiper could fail. The recall involves around 140,310 vehicles that were manufactured between August 1, 2010 and October 18, 2011.

The problem is that a seal may be missing that connects the wire harness to the passenger side wiper motor. The missing seal may allow water and foreign material to surround the connector. This could cause the passenger side wiper motor to work either intermittently or not at all.

Ford is planning on starting the recall repair and inspection on or around May 21, 2012. Vehicle owners will be notified of the free repair and inspection at Ford dealerships. If the wiper motor does not work, it too will be replaced free of charge.
