Ford Recalls 140,000 Focus Models for Wiper Failure
A windshield wiper motor could fail on certain 2012 models.
The electrical connector for the passenger-side wiper motor could become exposed to water or road debris, disabling the wipers. Ford dealers will begin the recall in late May, either replacing the seal or both the seal and wiper motor if necessary. Focus models manufactured after Oct. 11, 2011, are not affected.
Focus owners can call Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332 or the NHTSA safety hot line at 1-888-327-4236 for more information.
