TORONTO, ON., September 17, 2015 – Toyota Canada Inc. (TCI) today announced that it is conducting a safety recall of approximately 93,652 Model Year 2009-2012 RAV4 vehicles.
In the involved vehicles, water dripping onto the windshield wiper motor link can, over time, cause corrosion and wear at the wiper motor link joint. In some cases this could result in the separation of the wiper link from the wiper motor crank arm. If separation occurs, the windshield wipers could become inoperative, which could reduce driver visibility and increase the risk of a vehicle crash.
Owners of the involved vehicles will be notified by first class mail. Toyota dealers will replace the water channel, wiper link, and wiper motor crank arm with new ones.
Information about automotive recalls, including but not limited to the list of involved vehicles, is subject to change over time.
