Rear Wiper Problems


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a problem with my rear wiper in that it freezes half way and does not park when I use it to do a single wipe.

The spray function it runs fine until it comes to park.

I've looked online and everywhere suggests replacing R18/19 on checking this mine was a dual relay switch for the two which I changed but the problem still persists.

I've had a look at the wire around the wiper motor on the back which all appears fine.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

The wiring loom to the hatch takes a lot of punishment with repeated flexing when cold or when the insulation goes brittle over time.

It's a common occurrence on the MK1 Focus and has caused many to replace perfectly good wiper motors, boot locks and brake lights (myself included).

I have also heard it happen on Fiesta/Mondeo etc.

Thanks for all your help.

Wiring is probably beyond my expertise but I will certainly have a look anyway just so I can say whether it is definately this.

Thanks again
