The rear washer fluid works fine but the front has up and stopped. It seems that both front and rear are running off the same pump and reservoir (conveintly tucked in the left front wheel well where myself I am unable to access it). Do you think that it is just a plugged hose or something more serious?

Thanks in advance,

Jayson

it could be a blockage, do you hear th punp when you wash the front ?? If not, then the pump is gone & must be replaced. Yes, the pump does both windows; it runs clock wise for front & counter clock for the rear (or it may be the other way round).

Just another question on the washer pump...

Is there any way to increase the pressure output from the pump as have just fitted some replacement washer jets (two singlejet, wide spray as opposed to two twin jets) and though when stationary they are ok, when moving the jets just spray onto the wipers.

NOP; the nozles MUST be adjusted so, that the spray hit's the upper edge of the wipe surface (the inner ones slightly lower). At high speed, they will then be just right.

Ok, so if the pump in bi-directional and I can hear it when the rear is working but nothing when I try the front washer fluid. Does anyone think the pump is hooped or a wiring short?

Thanks in advance,

Jayson

i have a smilar problem, the back workes fine, but the frount is hit and miss, some times they just don;t work and others i have to pump it up, e.g. turning them on then off then on again. and if i'm lucky i might be able to get some water out. i've checked the pump and the pipes and i can't c anything like a blockage. i can blow all the way through.

can you hear the pump working when you try to work the rear washers? if you can then there is probably a blockage in the washer jet or pipe, if you hear nothing the pump or the wiring connector is faulty

I had the same problem just a month ago. Although i could hear the pump noise the pump was definitelly not working i ahve changed all of the pipes but still nothing. Decided to change the pump myself and since then no probs. So, just change it it is not so expensive to do it yourself anyway :grin:

it is possible that although you can hear the pump 'working' it is not actually pumping any water. as HIVE has mentioned it is easy and quite cheap to change the pump if this is the case
