Ford recalls 140,000 Focus cars for wiper problem

DETROIT (AP) - Ford is recalling more than 140,000 Focus compact
cars because the passenger side windshield wiper can fail.

Federal Safety regulators say a seal in the wiper motor wiring
may be missing. Water can get inside and cause the wiper to stop
working, increasing the risk of a crash. Ford Motor Co. says there
haven't been any crashes or injuries from the problem.

The cars were built from Aug. 1, 2010 through Oct. 18 of last
year. Ford dealers will clean and seal the wiring free of charge
and fix any wipers that don't work. Ford expects to begin the
repairs in late May.

Owners with questions can call Ford at (866) 436-7332.
