Ford Focus Windscreen Wiper Problem

11 posts in this topic

Hi currently have problem with my windscreen wipers on my ford focus 1.6 zetec 05 ,when driving wipers just stopped working,

have checked motor this is ok,checked wiper stalk ok you can hear a clicking sound so must be sending signal(rear wipe and

washers are working fine) fuse ok,not 100% on relays but only two in fuse box in car and swapped these two but still not

working, anybody got any ideas ? cheers Paul

I suspect, even though you are hearing a click, you are not triggering the actual microswitch correctly. I had this recently on my car, and I had the stalk replaced, as this also replaced the microprocessor.

Depending on your budget you could either buy the stalk from ford and have them fit it, self fit it, or take a chance by popping to a scrappie and getting one from a shunt / write off.

I would take your car to a different dealer, its concerning that such a small problem is that cost! I cant say I agree immediately!!!

Hi, Have you checked the wiper linkage? both my sons have focus,s and have had the same problem with the ball and socket parting company, if you can hear the motor turning this will be the problem, John

just back on here after pc probs. Water ingress on mine was evident on a couple of pins on the largest connector. tbh, didn't look much, but the mechanics and the sparky seemed to know right away. Ingress through wiring loom by capillary action.
