    Default Problems with washer jets

    Hi everyone
    New to the forum.
    Just took delivery of a 58 plate Vectra SRi and after receiving it noticed the washers weren't working. Due to the cold weather I checked to see if the fluid was frozen and it wasn't, but didn't look as if it has screen wash in it so I decided to syphon it off and put in extra strength screen wash. Have put a pin in each of the washer jets (front and back) and still they don't work. The motor is running but not a dribble comes out front or rear - any ideas?
    Thanks

    The jets do freeze pretty good, so this may be a possibility ? Have you tried taking the pipes off the jets to see if the water comes through ? There could be a blockage further into the jet...

    Tip, poor boiling water over the pipe, you wont get it off otherwise

    Hope this helps.

    The filter might be blocked or slimed up.

    No need to remove, just undo a couple of torx screws and peel it back slightly - as per the info in the how2.
