On certain vehicles, water may drain from the windshield cowl area onto the front wiper link ball joint.

Over time, this could result in corrosion and/or wear to the joint, which could result in the separation of the wiper link ball.

If separation were to occur, the windshield wipers could become inoperative, which could limit the driver’s visibility under certain operating conditions which may increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.

Correction: Dealers will replace the wiper link rod with a countermeasure one, and will replace the wiper motor crank arm with a new one.
