Identifying features

VIN (Vehicle identification number)
see VIN list attached

What are the defects?

The structure of the front deck allows water intrusion onto the windshield wiper motor. Water accumulated around the wiper motor breather hole is drawn into the motor as it cools down after use.

As a result, internal parts of the front windshield wiper motor may rust or seize and the wipers may become inoperative.

What are the hazards?

Loss of wiper function can reduce visibility and increase the risk of a crash.

What should consumers do?

When parts become available, Mitsubishi Motors Australia will contact all known owners by mail and advise them to present their vehicle to their preferred dealer to replace the front windshield wiper motor.

Consumers who require further information should contact Mitsubishi Motors Australia on 1300 13 12 11 or contact their preferred Dealer
