Ford Transit Connect Recalls
The plastic panel on the sliding door may not have been secured correctly during vehicle assembly. As a result the panel could come off while driving, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will re-install the panel with proper bonding materials to correct this concern.
The fuel and vapor return lines may not have been correctly installed during vehicle assembly and the lines may contact each other. Contact between the two lines can result in a damaged fuel line and resulting leak. Any fuel leak increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect the fuel line and correct the routing as necessary.
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.
