Volvo XC60 recalled for failure of windshield wiper
Poor fixing can cause the part to come loose in second-generation Swedish SUV units
Volvo recalls some of the second generation of the XC60 for failure to fix the windshield wiper. The call involves year / model units from 2018 to 2020, with manufacturing dates between May 20, 2017 and May 25, 2020. The recall involves approximately 87,226 vehicles.
According to the manufacturer, the use of incorrect torque was identified in the tightening of the nut used to fix the windshield wiper, which can cause looseness and possible loosening of the component, which could increase the risk of a crash.
Windshield wipers that do not work properly could affect a driver’s visibility. This could increase the risk of a crash.
Volvo will notify owners by mail and instruct you to take your vehicle to a dealer to tighten the nuts on the windshield wiper arms. A certified Volvo technician will simply tighten the bolts on the windshield wiper arms in order to ensure that they are tightened to the necessary and proper torque specification. As far as any symptoms of the issue, XC60 owners might hear an unusual noise if the wiper arms happen to loosen up while driving.
