The Citroen C4 Aircross and Peugeot 4008 have been recalled this week over concerns the windscreen wiper motors could fill with water and seize – with 2492 vehicles affected in total.
According to the French manufacturers, affected vehicles are fitted with a motor venting device that may not be to the correct specification – potentially allowing water to enter the wiper motor.
If the condition occurs, the water could cause internal corrosion and lock up the wiper motor, which could impact the driver’s visibility in wet weather – posing an accident hazard.
Owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted by their respective manufacturers. Customers can contact Citroen’s customer service line on 1800 898 058, or Peugeot’s customer care line on 1300 304 077.
