Hello All,Proud owner of 2009 Ford Flex Limited, extremely happy so far via the vehicle. Wife loves it so a lot she hardly lets me drive it. Anyexactly how I was wondering if any kind of of you have actually had issues through the windshield wipers? Mine occupational but just at the greatest setting, nopoint in between. Wife sassist that as soon as she started the automobile they appeared choose they were going to job-related, yet then stopped, she moved the wiper switch all the way up to fast and they operated. We live in california so I dont think it was a weather problem, interpretation too coldfor the motot to freeze up. rear wiper functions just fine, just the front wipers only work at highest setting. Could it be the switch relay that demands to be reput, or is the motor having actually issues. I review on another ford forum that the transmission for the wipers periodically grinds out the gears therefore only working at high sppeds. If it is the motor or Transmission for the wipers, can I solve this myself and also how a lot would it expense me. If it is the steering wheel switch is that a straightforward fix as well? Wife states the switch feels fine, clicks and moves smoothly, doesnt feel damaged. any type of assist would certainly be appreciated. Thanks

Welcome aboard! Sorry it had actually to be a problem that gained you to sign up with. But that"s no excusage for not posting photos in your gallery!:D I trust you acquire on that ideal away? Sorry, as well, that I can"t aid you through your wiper difficulty. It can be any number of things I imagine - motor, switch, loose wires, and so on I"m certain your dealer might number it out however if you"re out of warranty, at what cost?

The truth that both sides are doing the exact same thing indicates it might not be the electric motors. We require Waldo! He normally shows up in a thread to tell me I"m wrong about somepoint so I"ll put up this bait.Sounds prefer you require an ECU flash to gain the wipers to carry out what they"re meant to carry out. This is something you can not execute yourself.Now we wait.
