Rear Window De Mister Not Working

10 posts in this topic

Hi guys, im new to here so please be gentle lol

i have a 2000 fiesta zetec se which i love dearly but as winter has come i have just realised that my rear window de mister does not work, i have checked all the fuses, the light on the switch turns on when it is pushed and i have checked if there are any breaks in the lines of the window which there are not.

Any help would be greatfully accepted.

thanks

You need to get a meter across the terminals and check you have power , are they wired direct to the screen via the hatch or are they those spring terminals that connect when the boot is closed?

hi paul, erm the boot has two conections , one either side that are kinda welded to the screen but i also have the 4 pronged spring terminal when the boot closes although only 3 of them are standing proud, not sure if that makes any difference?

it could just be stuck down with dirt , try wd40 and see it you can get it back up , if not then the spring may have broken , then i'd go and get one from scrapyard or ebay , but thats more than lightly your problem

thanks paul, just put some wd40 on and managed to get it out but ny the looks of it the spring has gone.

What would be the correct wording to search for it on ebay?

Thanks by the way
