|FORD:||2011-2012 Transit Connect|
Some 2011-2012 Transit Connect vehicles built on or before 7/26/2011 may exhibit poor windshield wiping and require a new wiper blade and/or wiper pivot arm. The new improved wiper blade and pivot arm are not compatible with the old style wiper blade and pivot arm. New parts must be replaced as a set. The old style parts are no longer available.
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.
- Identify the wiper pivot arm currently on the vehicle by lifting up each arm to check the engineering part number stamped on the inside of the arm near the top.
- Does the part number start with BT16?
- Replace both the wiper pivot arm and wiper blade. Refer to Workshop Manual, Section 501-16.
