In Topic: Rear Wash Wipe

29 September 2014 - 07:29 PM

I sorted mine over the weekend. Wasn't the simple plug and play solution. My jet was actually blocked, nothing would resolve the block, so I've ordered a replacement but for the time being, drilled a hole using a 3mm bit through it so I can at least use the rear washer system properly!


Thanks for the tips on where to find the pipework, though. It meant I could disconnect it where it usually falls off and test it was working, which it was.

I will check mine shortly as this is the only gadget that needs attention now.

I did suspect that myself, but all of the other gadgets work perfectly.


I did find the connectors I mentioned earlier and shorted pins 1 & 4, but the compressor still did not kick in. When pressing the A/C button I did hear the fan start up, so I think I've narrowed it down to just being the compressor.

Replacing the stereo is straight forward, just order the correct fascia kit, wiring loom and tools to remove the old one. I'm leaving the 6 CD Sony unit in mine as it has an aux input in the glovebox anyway.


Never driven an X-Type but I have a friend who drives an S type and his Dad has driven Jags for a few years before as well and both have no complaints. I believe they are underneath the stuff we actually see, a Mondeo. I guess it'd be like an ST Mondeo but with a LOT more luxury in it.

Definitely useful mods.


I bought mine due to being made redundant, so it's replaced a 60 plate ford focus sport (nothing sporty about it, but it was named as such to empty the inventory of extras when making way for the Mk3 focus)


I would eventually like to go for a camera on the back - I used to have parking sensors on the focus and although I've had no problem with parking the Mondy so far, I do miss having the information there.


The car I drove before the focus was a BMW 316i (E46) and the Mondeo is very reminiscent of it, except it is much more fun to the drive. Absolutely itching to take it for a long run somewhere!
