How do you change the windshield wipers on a Ford Escort?
The wiper control arm on the right of the steering column pulls forward to control the rear wiper. Push in the end button to spray wiper fluid. Push up to turn wipers on with arm pulled toward you. Push arm back away from you to return to front windshield wipers. Took me forever to figure this out as this was a work vehicle.
The 1999 Ford Escort takes a 20" drivers side wiper blade and a 18" passenger side wiper blade (14" on the rear if applicable). Be sure to always lookup the exact part numbers for the brand of wipers you decide to purchase. This not only ensures the correct lengths but also the correct attachments. See related links below.
