Paccar is recalling 104,793 2011-2016 model-year Kenworth trucks because water might leak into their wiper motors, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

The recall covers Kenworth T270, T370, T440, T470, C500, C540, C550, T680, T800, W900 and 963 trucks that were manufactured from Nov. 1, 2010, to April 7, 2015.

As water leaks in, the wiper may cease to function on the “intermittent” setting, reducing the driver's visibility and increasing the risk of a crash, NHTSA said. Additionally, the water may lead to corrosion, which over time could result in an electrical short posing a fire risk.

Paccar is still developing and testing a remedy for the problem, NHTSA said, so recall notification plans aren't yet firm. However, truck owners can reach Kenworth customer service at (425) 828-5000. Paccar’s number for this recall is 15KWF.
