Can anyone help? the problem is it keeps stopping in different places, on intermittent, on washer it will sweep 3 times then stop in the wrong place, I have changed the wiper motor, checked fuses + relays 18 19, the wiring looks all ok and the arm is all good too! is there anything else I can check or has anyone had the same problem, the car is a 2003 focus estate. Cheers

I'd check the wiring again.
Check for wear and tear / water ingress in the flexi joint to the boot.
Common failure point.

Don't you just love it when the OP cannot be @rsed to come back with an update to the problem.....or at the very least to say thanks to those who took time out to reply to their plea for advice.......

I blame the modern advertising industry, it's convinced a lot of people today that they are the most important person on the planet ...........
