Was it a genuine Ford part? Ebay parts can be of questionable quality sometimes.
Actually, the authenticity of the part isnt the issue here.
This upgrade is only "plug'n'play" with no wiring mods required, if your stalk connector plug is wired to all 10 pins.
My 2003 Zetec only has 9 pins wired on the Connector Plug. The Intermittent feature is wired to the #1 Pin... No 6-speed wipe for me !!
So, I'm not sure what relay or wiring fixes are needed (perhaps sourcing a Ghia electronic control unit) but i'd like to upgrade this aswell... if its an easy thing to do.
