The vehicle having this issue was a 2000 Lincoln Town Car. My wiper motor stopped functioning while driving in rain. When I took it to a Lincoln dealership in n. Palm beach. The service person mentioned that there was a recall on a wiper motor cover. . That was likely to cause complete loss of wiper function. I called Ford motor company about this at the request of the dealership and after many calls. 1. To a person called missy
2. To a person called robin #7352
3. To a person called randy in melbourne, fla. After talking to them they mentioned that a person on their "techline" named dursum sent a message to the dealership that they would not take care of the wiper motor repair. (no explanation of why not)
upon calling Ford mo CO , the person randy, tried to get a supervisor, and mentioned that all the supervisors were busy, and would call me back in 24 hr. Upon mentioning that 24 hrs was a long time. Randy tried again. A supervisor at the melbourne office of Ford called marisha said that nothing would be done. She also mentioned that I would not be able to get a copy of the reason Ford refused to make the repair. I am upset that Ford refused to fix a part that was expressly stated in a recall. I am going to have my motor repaired at another service establishment, definitely not fords. I will retain the receipts. I am requesting a reimbursement for this repair, and want to make it noted of fords' response to this situation. The reference # of this to Ford is 1363350186
