Ford is recalling certain model year 2012 Focus vehicles manufactured from August 1, 2010, through October 18, 2011. A seal in the wiring harness connector to the passenger side wiper motor may be missing.
NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 12V149000
Component: Windshield wiper/washer: Switch/wiring
Potential number of units affected: 140,310
Consequence: Water or other contaminants may accumulate in the connector, resulting in an intermittent or inoperative passenger side wiper motor, reducing visibility and increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and as necessary, clean and properly seal the passenger side wiper motor connector. Any inoperative wiper motors will be replaced. This service will be provided free of charge. Ford expects to begin on or about May 21, 2012. Owners may contact the ford motor company customer relationship center at 1-866-436-7332.
