INBAY is a new range of products being launched in the coming months from Connects2
As saw on TV with the skan.k Rita Ora and the new samsung galaxy,

Have a pad which fits hidden under your existing cup holder in your car,
Simply sit the phone in the cup holder,
In a single din empty pocket inside your dash,
The battery in the phone will begin charging without wires :)

These products are not exclusive to the samsung S6 neither
Connects2 will also be selling adaptor pads to fit inside the iphone 5 onwards
And any smart phone that has a micro usb yes any smart phone :)

The range from connects 2 is called INBAY and due for release later this year.

Heard it here first people :)
I have part numbers for the full range from connects2 if desired.

Also had my first magazine feature interview with Connects2 today for there magazine also coming soon
Feeling pretty epic about that too its gonna be tight yo!!

Guide: De-wiper Ford Focus Mk2 & Mk2.5 Rear Wiper Removal

03 May 2015 - 08:50 AM

Guide: De-Wiper the boot door Ford Focus Mk2 and Mk2.5

I've had a lot of thought's about doing this modification in the past then i kept putting it off and doing somthing else to the car instead,

I have previously removed the rear wiper arm casing and sprayed it gloss black to better blend in with the tinted glass as saw on my build thread link: http://www.fordowner...-2015/?p=398169


But now there's little else to be done on the focus and i got bored so here's the guide :)

I've purchased a Gloss Black De-Wiper Kit from eBay Link: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/301650369289



Gotta love the provided fitting instructions no mercy on the rear wiper if it ain't coming off cut it off :lol:


I also recommend using some bathroom silicone sealant available to purchase locally at any DIY Store.
Tools Required:
T25 Torx
8MM Socket or Spanner
1/2" Socket or Spanner
Flat head Screwdriver

First Step,
Lift open elbow cap from the rear wiper blade as saw in image below:


Using a 1/2" socket or wrench;
Remove the securing nut & washer



followed by removing the wiper arm itself,
The removal of the wiper arm can prove to be difficult;
I first used a flat head screwdriver to free the spring and wiper arm away from the main elbow as saw in images below:

"insert image"

The method reduced the bulk,
Allowing the short elbow section to be prised from the main motor bolt as saw in image below:



Next Step,
Open the boot door,


Remove the parcel shelve,


Then using a T25 Torx; remove the panel retaining screw from both pockets in the panel as saw in images below:





With both screw's removed;
Place one hand on the metal boot door,


Place other hand in the pocket of the plastic handle and pull downwards,


The panel will unclip as saw in image below, this separation process makes a lot of noise when the plastic is unclipping.


Repeat the grip and pull process on the opposite side to remove the panel completely and store it in a safe place until ready to refit.


Sit yourself down on the sill of the boot compartment facing outwards towards the rear of the focus,
Bring the boot lid down on to your lap resulting in a comfortable position rather than working at it overhead.

Unplug the wiring loom from the rear wiper motor,


Using an 8mm Socket or Wrench;
Remove the three aluminium bolts which retain the wiper motor,


The motor will then slide out leaving a black plastic pipe and the rubber grommet behind.

Standing up now,
Facing in to the boot area;
Fold down the boot door,
Using a flat head screwdriver on the outside of the boot door;
Gently lift the rubber ring upwards prying it out from the glass using fingers and screwdriver taking care not to scratch or break the glass.




With the rubber grommet now removed,
Refit the three 8mm aluminium bolts that were used to hold the wiper motor in place as they don't weigh very much and best place to store them preventing loss if one should wish to refit the wiper motor at a later date,



At this point;
Use some PVC electrical insulating tape to cover the wiper loom plug as its now disconnected,



It is also recommended to take some time to thoroughly clean the glass area both inside & out followed by allowing time to dry as this will ensure a perfect seal on the blanking cap.




As an additional precaution I've used some clear Bathroom silicone to seal around the inside ring of the blanking cap on the inside of the boot to prevent any risk of future leaks passing through,


With the glass now clean and dry;

Insert the gloss black cap in to the boot from outside. While !Removed! on the silicone coated retaining bolt from inside the boot door,



The De-Wiper kit is now completely fitted,

Offer up the plastic boot panel,
When aligned correctly; slap the panel in to place using the palm of your hand while gripping the metal boot door in other hand,


Refit the two T25 Torx retaining screws in to the bottom of the plastic panel !Removed! in until hand tight.


Job Done, B)
