Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi. My 2001 focus rear demister has developed a strange fault. The switch and fuse work fine, but the rear screen only clears (demists) in the middle.... And in circles of about 1cm in diameter?! Could anyone please tell me what the problem could be? Many thanks :-)
You know those little brown lines on the inside of your rear window, they are wires and can get damaged when cleaning your window. get an OHMS meter and you can actually test the lines on your glass and find the damaged sectors, you can get repair kits to do repairs

Check rear demister control relay operation,
Check for presence of 12V power (and ground connection) at rear window heater connection.
Check continuity of the rear window heating element.

I also have a 53 clio with climate control and the fan stopped working. After being quoted £104 by dealership I decided to have a go myself. Bonnet up, remove driverside scuttle cover. Unplug fan resistor 7701051272 (large plug with black wire to fan)remove securing screws and resistor. Dismantled casing and peeled away gel from soldered side of circuit board around mosfet transistor-desolder and remove. Mine was a N342AD 75344G but the nearest I could get was HUF75337P3 from Maplin £1.68. This was the wrong 'package size' but I managed.Close the clamp slightly (before)to hold transistor firmly and then insert transistor and solder. Reassemble. After I got an email from a scrappy QUOTING £20 if you don't fancy the messing about.
