The wiper arms may not be adequately riveted, resulting in incomplete or inconsistent clearing of the windshield and possible detachment of the wiper arm. If the wiper arm detaches, the driver's visibility may be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the driver and passenger side wiper arm and blade assemblies to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 12S36.
