Ford Recalls Some 2011-2012 Transit Connects for Windshield Wiper Issues

Ben TimminsAug 10, 2012
Ford is recalling some 2011-2012 Transit Connect cargo vans after finding that the front windshield wiper arms could pull away from the windshield, reducing their ability to clean the glass.

The Problem: Ford is recalling Transit Connect models because the pin that connects the front windshield wiper arms to the heads could become loose. If this happens, the windshield wipers could pull away from the windshield (or separate altogether), which would reduce or eliminate their ability to clean the windshield. Should this happen during a rainstorm, the lack of visibility could result in a crash. The rear windshield wiper is not affected by this problem
The Fix: Ford will fix the problem by replacing both front wiper arms and blades, at no charge, starting on August 13. Ford began to send owner letters this week, and notified dealers last week of the recall. Customers can also call Ford at 1-866-436-7332 for more information.

Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 16,330 vehicles, specifically 2011-2012 Transit Connect vans made at the Kocaeli Assembly Plant in Turkey between October 25, 2010 and July 24, 2011.
