    Default No Washers Front Or Rear!

    Got my heating sorted and now the washers donít work front or rear! Checked the fuse and it seems ok. Whatís the best/worst case scenario here anyone any ideas? When I go to push the stalk control for the washers no noise at all, the wipers work fine though. Thanks.

    Have you checked to see if the washer pump filter is clear ?
    These can clogg up and congeal,pull the passenger arch liner back and pull the washer pump out,and then take the pump filter out and give it a rinse under warm water or put it in a cup of boiling hot soapy water and leave it to soak for 10 minutes.

    Also remember to give the wash bottle a good rinse out too - otherwise the filter will just clog up again.

    Yes, one motor. The electrical polarity is reversed when you want to squirt the rear screen. Basically it spins the motor in the other direction.
