Question

I have a Ford Focus LX '55 plate which comes without Quick Clear Front Screen, is the existing wiring loom capable of running this? If so, do i just need a switch fitted (plus screen!)? I presume upgrading this won't affect my warranty or will it? Thanks very much.

Question

My car is six months old from new. I have problems, when driving in the rain, with smears on my windscreen from the wiper blades. I have had this problem right from the beginning and It is becoming dangerous driving in the rain and in the dark. I would like to know whether there is a possiblility that there could be something that needs to be done to the wiper mechanism as i know it is not worn out blades because I have replaced them and it has not getting any better. I need to get this sorted but don't want to bother the mechanics if it is something I can do myself. I would be grateful if you could help.
