I dont know how I managed to it, I haven't even had the car a week and already i've broken something.
I was in a rush and launched my handbag in my car, next thing i know my windscreen wiper sticky thing is hanging off.... help!!

Has it actually snapped off?

If so you'll have to get another stalk from either a car being broken for spares or the dealer but not sure how much the dealer would charge

It's completely snapped around the bottom, but it's hanging on by the wires :S

Yup replacement stalk.
If its like the old escort ones it would be both stalks and be a 5 minute job.

I found one for a tenner on ebay..
Then I sweet talked one of the lads from work, and he's going to fix it for me :)

ford was going to charge me 14.68 for the rear wiper + vat, so will cost you something like that, unless you go to a breaker yard that will only cost you a couple quid.

Its not the actual wiper, it's the stalk behind the steering wheel.
I wouldn't even attempt to change it myself, I would only ending up breaking something else lol.
They were 55-80 wherever I looked, but I found one on ebay for 9.99... so I got that one lol
