I just recieved a letter that states I need to take my truck in to be inspected to see if it is effected by this recall. The recall is on the wiper motor on some 2000 and 2001 ford models and that the motor may malfunction in a certain mode. It is safety recall 01S24.

I would like to know just how much they have to disassemble the truck to fix the wiper motor. I hate taking my truck in for recalls. I had gearshift recall on a '87 Ranger and the dealer only put half of the screws back in the shifter boot. I had a parking brake recall on a '93 Explorer and they pulled loose my alarm and radio wiring at the fusebox (it took months to figure out what was going on there). You just know they're going to break something each time they pick up a wrench.
I also received the wiper recall. Please let us know just how "involved" this repair becomes. I would like to know what they are doing before I decide to take it in.
