      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Help please. I have an Smax08, 1.8 titanium. I had a new detachable towbar fitted 2 weeks ago with vehicle specific wiring. And now the wiper blades come on at 25 mph and won't stop, they start too slowdown after awhile but don't stop. They .Do stop when the speed is below 25 mph. Have tried the F22 fuse and this worked. Until I locked the car and the next I used it the wipers fault came back. Any ideas as I am going on holiday in a weeks time and needed the car.
  2. Hi all, Here is a guide to show how quick and easy it is to change the wiper blades on your ford. This guide is now available to download in pdf format making it easy to print and follow see link to download: http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/topic/62616-guide-focus-mk2-mk25-wiper-blade-change-pdf/ I have purchased my replacement wipers from a perticular company on ebay but i refuse to recommend them to others because they sent me somebody elses order along with my own, me being an honest person i notified them of their error and made arrangments with the company to return the items providing the cover the cost of return postage. I retuned the parcel via tracked mail, the company has confirmed reciept of the parcel but have not paid me postage. So if purchasing your wipers on ebay, And the Company your buying from has "Clear" in the name then stay clear of that seller lol Anyways on with the guide. I purchased model specific Bosh ultra flat blade wipers, the front wipers come supplied as a pair And the rear comes specific too. Please see images below for the Bosh wiper codes to suit the focus 2005-2010 For the purpose of changing the wipers, I stopped the car with the wiper arms in mid cycle position. Lift the wiper arm from the windscreen Rotate the wiper blade to look like a smile shape thus clearing the blade from the stop plate Gently slide the wiper out sideways towards the drivers side wing mirror Dispose of old wiper in Recylce Waste and unpackage the new wipers. The longer wiper fits to the drivers side and the smaller wiper to the passenger side. Line up the hole on the new wiper and gently slide in to place then flap wiper downwards and replace wiper arm down on to the windscreen, Repeat steps on the passenger side then continue to the rear if required depending on hatch/saloon model. For those who have a hatch back model. Gently lift wiper arm from the rear window When elevated from the rear window, Gently move the bottom of the wiper outwards to create an overall T shape Then grip the head of the wiper arm in one hand, And the wiper blade in the other hand. Pull the wiper bracket bar from the wiper arm grip using firm gentle pull, prepare for the sudden release of the wiper so dont pull too hard or you could result in ßtriking the rear window or panel with the old wiper. When the wiper has been removed, Line up the new wiper blade and again; grip the wiper in one hand and the wiper arm in the hand and gently push the wiper in to the bracket, placing a thumb on the bracket section just behind the socket and gently pushing. Return wiper arm to make contact with the rear window. Job Done, Hope this guide saves some people money by making people aware of just how easy it is to change the wipers yourself with the same end result as the dealers, But at a fraction of the cost. Thanks for reading, Please see my other Guides listed below this post in my signature, most are available in PDF format for easy printing.
