Dear Mr. Geis:

Thank you for your letter about Standard No. 104, Windshield Wiping and Washing Systems. You note several typographical errors in your version of the standard that you would like us to correct.

The version of the standard to which you refer is not the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's version. The official version of Standard No. 104 is set forth in Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Parts 400 to 999, dated October 1, 1995 (copy enclosed). This version does not contain the errors you found.

Please note that English system measurements in Standard No. 104 have been converted to the metric system. The metric measurements took effect on March 14, 1996. The conversions are not intended to change the stringency of Standard No. 104.

If you have further questions or need additional information, please contact Dorothy Nakama of my staff at (202) 366-2992. Our fax number is (202) 366-5820.
