Nissan Recalls Sentras for Wiper Failure

14 August 1998

Nissan Announces Voluntary Safety Recall Campaign on 1995 - 1997, Some 1998 Sentra and 200SX VEHICLES
    CARSON, Calif., Aug. 14 -- Today, Nissan Motor Corporation
U.S.A., distributor of Nissan vehicles in the United States, announced a
voluntary safety recall campaign on all 1995, 1996, 1997 and a limited number
of 1998 Sentra and 200SX vehicles.  This safety recall campaign, designed to
prevent windshield wiper failure, affects approximately 524,000 vehicles.
    On the affected Sentras and 200SXs, water may enter a windshield wiper arm
linkage ball joint, which could result in gradual wear over a period of time
inside the joint.  This could cause the wipers to stop working while they are
in use, which could result in an accident.
    Owners of affected Sentra and 200SX vehicles should contact their Nissan
dealers to schedule a service appointment to have the recall repair procedure
completed.  To address the problem, dealers will install a water diversion
seal to the vehicle that prevents water from entering the ball joint in the
windshield wiper linkage.  In some instances, a wiper pivot and sections of
the wiper linkage will be replaced with new ones by the dealers.  All repairs
for this safety recall will be at no charge to customers.
