Ford Motor Company is recalling 283 model year 2020 Ford Explorer Police Interceptor Utility and Lincoln Aviator vehicles.

The vehicles contain windshield washer fluid that was contaminated with brake fluid.

A washer system contaminated with brake fluid can reduce the driver's ability to clear the windshield, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will flush out the washer system, replacing the washer bottle neck, washer pump assembly, fluid level sensor and the front and rear wiper blades.

Dealers will also inspect and repair the vehicle's paint and exterior components if affected free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin March 8, 2021. Owners may contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 21C01.
