Mazda Recall 3705K: Wiper Motor Grease

2006 Mazda Tribute

After a period of continuous use on the high speed setting, lack of grease on the output shaft gear may cause the gear teeth to distort or fracture during operation resulting in the loss of wiper function. Inoperative wipers under inclement weather conditions could cause a crash due to impaired visibility.

Visibility — Windshield Wiper/Washer — Motor

On certain trucks and sport utility vehicles, the windshield wiper motor may have been produced without grease applied to the output shaft gear.
Dealers will inspect the wiper motor for the presence of grease and grease the wiper motor gears if necessary. The recall began on November 28, 2005. Owners may contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.
