Hi all

Today's problem:

Owned 2014 Titanium X for 2 months - first time heated screen used it would take a few minutes to almost clear one side of the glass. Fifth Ford with this fitted, never a problem, so into main dealer yesterday under Ford Protect Gold.

Elements faulty - new screen replacement authorised under warrantee - all good so far.

Today: two screens supplied by Ford and rejected - ordered by main dealer using Ford's own parts number etc - first turned up unsuitable for auto lights and wipers, second ordered - same again!

Am being told it's an error on Ford's own parts supply system - still awaiting it to be resolved - i.e. the correct screen supplied and fitted! Supposedly it's being dealt with, although they don't seem to know just how?!?

My question: has anyone else had a similar issue with the supply of a front windscreen please?

Thanks

Brian

BTW test drove a 2016 Kuga to possibly replace our BMW 120 x-drive - reviews say "best in class" for ride and handling - :mad: appalling! Told dealer our B Max was smoother. My previous 2009 Berlingo van was more comfortable! Test drove a Edge - wow, very, very comfortable and smooth ride. Edge certainly on the short list. Just waiting on any diesel announcements in the budget before we change.

I can't say I have had to replace my windscreen but I did have issues with the drivers side not working until I found a work round. From cold, turn the heated knob all the way to cold. The screen and air con will automatically engage, then push the the front heated screen button. If I don't follow the latter procedure it won't work, only the passenger side will clear. No idea why this should be but hey! it's a Ford

Hi

Finally sorted (hopefully) - due for collection tomorrow.
Ford had to manually pick, remove packaging and check before despatch - they can't explain why their system has the wrong parts numbers to product for the B Max. Be aware should anyone need a screen replacement (with auto wipers and lights).

Two main issues related to one side of a heated windscreen not clearing. Firstly, eaxh side is controlled by a separate fuse. Secondly, the vehicle's electronics will sense any dip in the battery voltage and disable certain high load equipment until the voltage goes back up.

Delays were totally down to Ford’s parts system apparently having the wrong numbers/parts listed for some B Max cars
