Rain sensor mounting bracket part number?

Hi All. Bought a used 2019 EcoSport and found auto lights and auto wipers not working. Trouble shooted problem to rain sensor and mounting bracket missing!!! Doesn't look like it's had a new screen as there are whitness marks where some sort of bracket had been glued to the screen. More than likely 'borrowed' by the dealer to fix or upgrade another vehicle. Bought a replacement sensor and things work when I tape the sensor to the screen. Now I need a mounting bracket. Anyone have a Part Number and any clue about adhesive? Thanks in advance.

Hi Stephen, here is the Ford parts catalogue: https://ford.7zap.com/en/car/

You should be able to find the bracket listed for your model. The glue is a problem, many people have had issues when not using the original clear sticky sheet. I can only imagine that you can get a replacment sticky gasket from a Ford parts department or from a windscreen replacment company.

That’s very strange I was a windscreen technician for 11 years usually the brackets come already on the windscreen and they are usually glued on at the factory where the screen is made the only thing I can advice is that you go to your local windscreen fitting centre and ask there or have tihe windscreen replaced and your problem will be solved the glue is not cheep and trying to Aline the brackets isn’t easy also you won’t have the obscuration band in that area hope this helps

Thank you. The obscuration area is there and there's faint residue where a keyhole-shaped holder had been. I'm sure it's the correct screen. Spoke to Ford today and although they initially provided me with a part number, they said they couldn't sell me the £8.22 bracket, it only came with the windscreen. This kinda goes along with your thoughts that it comes bonded with the screen. The 2nd hand sensor works when gaffa taped in place. Do you think that one of the earlier gel adhesive pads would work, or would light refract differently and confuse the sensor?

Looks like it's had the wrong replacement windscreen fitted.

 

Doesn't look like the screen's been replaced. Has an obscured area withe the correct size aperture for the sensor. There's also faint marks left behind by an adhesive on the inside of the screen in-line with the aperture. Think someone has robbed the sensor and holder in the hopes of retro fitting a lesser spec vehicle.

Thanks I'll take a look.
