A very minor one this:

When hitting the wiper stalk down, so that the wipers do one single right to left motion, the wipers stop whenever you let go of the stalk, so in order to obtain a complete wipe cycle you have to keep it held down until the wipers hit the bottom of the screen. Also affected is if you turn off the normal speed wipe mid way through a cycle: the wipers stop dead where they are.

Blown fuse or knackered stalk?

Thanks.

Could be any of what you have mentioned. Check the fuse F20 and also the relay could be at fault too...R15 both in the passenger fusebox. Sounds like the relay. Does it click? If the rear wiper works ok then its not the fuse as they both use the same one.

most of the stalks are the same except the saloon (no rear wiper) now i'm not 100% on this but i think the mk1 estate stalk will give you intermittent rear wash wipe instead of constant wipe, don't know if mk2 estate one is same... just a thought as my hatch is constant and i wish it wasn't, so if i can find the estate one i'm going to try it. my advice, as above, check fuses and relays are not loose in the fusebox. but maybe stalk on way out.

Ever noticed that putting "anal" in front of some ford model names makes them sound funny? Fiesta, Probe, Ranger. Explorer, Maverick etc... lol

This could also be the self park feature built into the wiper motor as the control stalk doesn't control the parking of the wipers, most wiper motors have a cam and switch built in to make them self park using a constant live feed that is broken by the switch when in the park position.

Got ya. I'll check the fuses and if no joy it sounds like i'll be swapping wiper motors over at some point then.

Thanks for your help.
