Involved vehicles are marked “open” on the Investigate Vehicle History screen in GM Global Warranty Management system. This site should always be checked to confirm vehicle involvement prior to beginning any required inspections and/or repairs.

Condition Certain 2010-2017 model year Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain vehicles located in the high corrosion provinces of Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland/Labrador may experience high wiper module transmission ball joint corrosion and/or wear which could result in the separation of one or more ball joints from its corresponding socket during operation. If a ball joint were to separate, one or both of the windshield wipers could become inoperative, which could limit the driver’s visibility under certain operating conditions which may increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.

The predominant failure mode is water draining through the Air Inlet Panel (AIP) onto the wiper transmission ball joints, leading to grease washout of the link ball sockets. As the grease washes out of the transmission ball joint sockets, contaminants are able to enter the joints causing corrosion and wear of the link ball and socket, resulting in a reduced retention force of the joint.

Correction Dealers will replace the front wiper module with a new module with improved ball joints and a water deflector. If the wiper module has been recently replaced (within 6 months) with the improved ball joints, then only the water deflector and AIP drain repairs need to be completed. In addition, dealers will fill the water management hole near the passenger side wiper pivot and drill a small hole on the adjacent wall of AIP to direct water away from the wiper transmission joints.
