where to buy?

Hi,

This is an excellent thread, so thanks to the OP. I'm yet another with the intermittent wiper problem. When I click down to wipe once and let go I end up with the wipers halfway up the screen.

What I'd like to know is where I can easily get hold of this relay, or one that will do the job?

MMCCLUSK2 gives p/n

F57B-14B192-AA

I assume it's a replacement for the F5TZ-14N089-B


and Warren914 gives the details at Newark electronics

These relays list for $3.60 each at Newark Electronics.
Part number CM1-12V


the spec for that relay from Newark is:

Automotive Relay
Coil Voltage VDC Nom:12V
Coil Resistance:96ohm
No. of Poles:1
Contacts:SPDT
Relay Mounting:Plug In
Carry Current:20A
Coil Power VDC:1.5W
Coil Voltage DC Max:12V
Relay Terminals:Quick Connect RoHS Compliant: Yes

does anyone know where in the UK you can get one cheaply?

Maplin have one at http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=6436

This is an SPCO and spec seems ok. Single pole changeover (SPCO) relays have five tags.

Any ideas if this one's ok, or where else I'd get one?

Many thanks
David

This is a great easy fix. I only needed to remove the 2 7mm bolts to get to the relay. Took five minutes and the wipers work perfectly now. Thanks.

Mr. Bergner I did also had a huge fuse on mine I ordered two of them also and it did not work on my car. I had to pull fuse 43 off my panel in order to make them stop. So if you get the one or the two in my case it did not work. I believe the issue is now going to be the wiper motor. What do you guys think?

Quick heads up for UK Focus drivers - This sorted out my wiper problem.

Just drop the glovebox lid to access the fuse-board and remove the two brass screws to move it back enough to get at the relays. Looked around for a alternate supplier but found that the relay was only £5.69 from my local main dealer.

Can't believe I suffered for 2 yrs thinking I'd have to replace the motor or such-like. :-)

I still haven't done this lol..... I knew about it from the beginning but just never got around to it. basically what it'll do for me is park the wiper AFTER it's full sweep, not as soon as I let go of the stalk. lol.
