wiper motor is inside the tailgate behind the big plastic trim, before taking all the screws out check the fuses and relays, (click fordwiki at the top then choose mondeo, mk3 for fuse and relay info)

as for the rear washer, it could be the pump pump filter is full of crud, if they're anything like other ford ones they just pull out the washer reservoir, you may need to remove some underbody/wheelarch trim to access them, in the bottom of the washer tank.

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

Unplug the motor wiring and connect it directly to a battery and see if it moves.

not sure about the rear wipers not working but for no water coming out it could be the pipe has come away (common fault so ford told me) its situated in one side of the plastic covering above the back seat so i was told by ford,i have the same problem no water coming out not had time to check mine yet

As mentioned the other issues are the pipe coming apart around roof area in the C pillar. Or the actual washer jet nozzle is clogged.

1st pop the pipe off the rear nozzle and see if any water comes out. If yes its the blocked nozzle, If not check the roof area by the C pillar
wet? Failing that swap the pump.


The pumps can still whirr away but not actually pump any water. Check it the small plastic filter over the pump
inlet. This clogs and starves the pump of water and burns itself out.

Did that to my old car, It would squirt a bit then stop, Eventually it burnt out because i kept pressing the washer button.

New motor sorted the problem out.

Not sure if i refitted the filter or not?


One pump works the front and rear washers, I presume it spins opposite directions, You could try swapping the pipes over.
See if the front stops working and the rear starts working.

Hello all my rear wiper is not working I can here the replay click in car but no action on wiper 2006 titanium estate how do I get to motor?

I bought a motor from ebay for about £10 it was used but working well. I had one problem though in that the mounting bracket was dissimular it was easily fixed by swapping the backplates of the motors and then it was plain sailing. Its really easy to change if you get a motor with the right bracket it will take a novice about 30 minutes. You remove the black screws from each insisde handle of the tailgate if it is an estate and the just gently pry the lower plastic trim panel out with an interior fork or a large flat head screw driver. unscrew the wiper motor arm and pry it off , remove the electrical connection, remove the 3 bolts that fix the motor to the tailgate and as gently ass possible pry it out of the axle rubber seal (bushing). if you need to replace the back plate of the motor it's fastened with some torx screws which are removed with a quality bit in order not to round them off. Then the whole job is reversed to re assemble. Lubricate the wiper motor axle with auto transmission fluid every autumn and the motor will last longer the atf will be gentle on rubber seals. It's an easy and cheap fix if you can get a working motor from a breaker or off ebay. If you have to buy it retail it's still a nice job but not so cheap. for retail you can try transitparts.co.uk or eurocarparts.com both ship quickly and are pretty nice to deal with even for buyers outside the UK like me.
