I can't stand things that dont work how they were designed. and it kind of irritates me to know that the focus has specific blades.

Hands down, honest to god. I've got a set on both my focus and my mazda they are similar to the rain-X but cheaper and last forever. They work like nobodys business, they are also designed for higher speeds so they don't lift off the windshield.

Michelin Stealth Hybrids







Make sure you get the ones that say hybrid and look like the above they have two different Stealth and the others are ok but not the same. They come with a yellow plastic clip one the end you just simply pull off.

There was a thread a long time ago for the front blades. (Third-Party Wiper Blades?)

For the rear blade, you can order the Valeo rear 12-A, but be advised, it's a much uglier blade than the Ford. I ended up taking the rubber insert out of the Valeo and replacing it in the Ford one. Strange since Valeo is the OEM supplier for Ford's blades.

Ha ha, thanks. Those blades come with other attachments to help fit on other cars. I've never paid attention to the wiper design on the MK3s.
