The number I found was WW1295. Being a clip-in style, most 12" ones will fit, they just won't have the same 'form' to them is the best way to describe it. Trico says to use part 12-M but the 'lines' don't quite line up.

And on the windshield side, I dropped to 24" blades, so far they've been great.

I swung by the dealer. When they inputted the CP9Z-17528-A / CP9Z-17528-B numbers it adjusted it to the Motorcraft number.
Amazon prices for the wipers weren't much different than what dealer has, so I'll likely pick em up there. Wish cabin air filter was the same; $30 on Amazon, $55 in store (no install).

They are showing as about $20 on there. They have the cabin filter as well, at the same cost as it would be from Amazon (after shipping).

Yeah, I know :p Was just saying they now appear to be about $20 for em.
Considering the dealer wanted $26 for the Motorcraft ones, it sounds like a good deal; I just hope they work as well as everyone is saying!

Yeah. Make sure before you find a promo code on the web. You can get an extra 5% off with that: https://www.retailmenot.ca/coupons/rockauto.com

You pay canadian taxes on checkout (about 5%) so you have no duty to pay when you receive the package.

I just went with some Trico Instinct blades from Advanced Auto Parts. I wasn't going to wait for Amazon again. All the brands there had pretty good reviews. I saw a trick I want to try on the Scotty Kilmer page about after you clean the windshield applying a layer of wax to the glass and buffing it out good which apparently gets rid of the squeaks. I still don't like the wiper design. With pretty much every other car you can get any blade that's the right measurement. With the Focus it has to be the floppy blade or it doesn't work.
