    Had a problem with the rear windscreen wiper today. It stayed on intermittent no matter what I did. I stopped a couple of times with the engine off and then restarted - no change. Decided I would get home, call the Ford garage and get it fixed. Finally, I discovered a short term fix. Seems if I put the bloody switch in the off position instead of the bloody intermittent position it stays still. Nice trick. If any other old farts have the same problem feel free to make a note.

    strange that, mine does just the same. thanks for the tip. Also, my interior light does something similar, like if I put it in the on position, it stays on.

    We have all done stupid / senior things, but I take my hat off to you for actually putting out into the wider world.....
    Of course, I have never ever done anything as stupid as that... :pinocchio:

    I love it when things like this happen. Shows we are human and to be honest the relief that you don't have an expensive repair makes it funnier (y)

    Where it matters
    Where do you think you lost it and will the manufacture supply a replacement?
