Hi all

I have a 2005 Focus Ghia, I have a small problem not that it really bothers me because its on the passanger side but the missus is giving me a hard time about it.

my front windscreen heater doesn't work on the passanger side. There is a perfect line down the middle where the heating works and not. My question is, is it as simple as changing a fuse to fix the problem or should I go to an auto elec to have a look?

Thanks

im sure its a case of ducting and flaps thet close to direct the air as you turn the selector dial for the demister are we talking about heated screen aircon or climatronic im not up on ghia specs it sounds like a flap is stuck blocking the air to the screen is it coming out the side vents at all? try experimenting with the selector and see if on any of them it works sounds dumb but ive seen th eselector dial being fitted wrong

Had the screen on my 2005 Focus replaced six months ago after it cracked as a result of being struck by an object. Speaking to the fitter there are a few myths around about these screens, the main one being that there is one fuse for the passenger side and one for the driver side. Apparently this is not true for the Focus (the Mondeo does have two fuses though). On the early Focus screens if one of the filamants (wavy lines) broke, that side of the screen would stop working. Only solution is a new screen in this case. On the later design screen the the wiring was split in to groups, so that if there was a wiring failure small sections of the screen would stop working but the rest would be ok.

there are two fuses one per side should be 40amp next to the screen relay,,in the engine bay.
hope this helps you.

The Mk1 Focus doesn't have seperate fuses for left/right hand side front heated screen.
