    This affects all 2013 CR-V chassis code RE5 ,RE6 & RE7.

    The Symptoms
    Rear wiper may become loose on the motor spindle. If the wiper is restricted by ICE/snow, it may cease to operate and may drop from its’ normal horizontal park position.

    The Cause
    Insufficient torque application during assembly.

    The Fix
    Apply the correct torque during assembly at Swindon.
    Any wipers which experience the symptom can be rectified by re applying the specified torque as the splines on the wiper arm are self cutting and application of the correct toque will ensure correct fixation.

    Torque setting: 9.4Nm
