i own a ford finesse 2002 i had the wiper stalk replaced as the old one wasn't working. when you pull the stalk towards you it sprays water on the front windscreen but the back window wiper also start to wipe the back window. is this normal or do i have to ask the garage to fix it? any help welcome.

Sounds like the water lines from the washer pump have been reversed.

 

What happens when you press the button on the end of the stalk ?

You can't really fit it wrong, but it does sound like they have messed about with the washer pump to get it to spray water on the front screen.

 

Was it a new stalk they fitted ?
