Very easy indeed mate as all you need is a 13mm socket or spanner to undo  the nut holding the wiper arm on after you make sure the original wiper arm is right down in it's resting position which i then place a piece of tape on the glass  parallel against the underside of the wiper blade so the top edge of the tape is where the new blade will sit giving you the same resting position for the new one ..

I found that i had to have the old wiper arm lifted all the way away from the glass and waddle and pull in order for it to come loose so just stand slightly to the left so the arm is pointing over your right shoulder then you won't end up blinding yourself ..

 

It took me around 7 minutes to do mine due to my old wiper arm being a little stuck but not all wiper arms are a bugger to release as i've found in the the past that some are really easy to come off and don't go using alot of brute force when pulling it off just gradually add the extra effort or you could find yourself with a few more parts loose than you want ..

I used the same mate as that's what my son used on his mk1 a few years back and i thought at the time that i'd like to do the same when i get a Focus ..

I like those new side repeaters!  The orange lenses look fine on the original MK1s as they also have orange indicator lenses mounted to the lower front bumper, but on the facelift models the indicators are integral to the headlamp units so orange side repeaters look out of place.

I have to say I quite like the look of your car E TEA. I'm not a fan of the mk3 to be honest. Never had one or drive one. But I did test drive an Escort RS turbo back in the 80's and it still sticks in my memory bank. What an effffing flying machine. Can't recall why I didn't buy it.
I've had 2 mk3 focus's and have to say they're the best of the bunch ( my opinion ).
But each to their own and I'd no idea the mk1 had leather. Very nice and the cars colour is best for that car.
You enjoy it pal.

I need to re-do my pics thanks to photobuckets new 3rd party hosting policy :angry: but on the good side of things I took my little Focus in for the dreaded MOT last Thursday morning which it passed yay! with a minor advisory on front tyre wear so yes i'm well pleased with it after all the jobs I've done on it since I got him in February 8) ..

Yeah, they've started charging for this service so I've deleted all my albums and cancelled my account with them. Anyway, don't need them on this forum since it accepts image files.

Didn't think of using image files on here tbh as I've not been able to do that on other club forums but now you've mentioned it I might just start doing that as it will be less time consuming than using a hosting site .
