I've got a problem with the drivers side heated front windscreen. From what I understand the heated windscreen is in two parts, left and right. Well, the right hand side is not working, which really is the side that I would like to have working being the side I look out of!
I am hoping this is going to be something simple like a fuse but am pretty hopeless when it comes to cars! I was told the fuses are located behind the glove box but but it turns out they are not and can't find the fuse box anywhere!!? I'm assuming it's in the drivers side but not sure where. Also does anyone know which fuse I need to be checking?
Heated windscreen fault on Ford Fiesta 2008 TDCI -
I found the fuses ok, on advice found on another forum, I took off the skuttle panel on my 2008 model to get to the electrical connectors to find nothing behind there.
To check the electrical connectors:
Inside the car, take off the plastic trim running either to the left or right hand side of the windscreen (with a flatbed screwdriver - gently prising it off from the top), depending on the side that is faulty. e.g. passenger side not clearing, take off the trim running down the passenger side of the windscreen.
About half way down you will find a push on connecter, linking the electrics to the windscreen. On my car, the connecter had come loose. I just pushed it back on, took about 1 minute, was as simple as that!
