    Default Help please with washer jet problem!

    Hi,

    Im having problems with my washer jets and would like some help/advice before the really bad weather comes.

    When i go to use the jets the spray from them is useless, screen wash comes out of the jet but just reaches the bottom of the windscreen.

    Could there be a blockage? is there a filter that will need cleaning? where is the washer bottle? and guides on how to locate?

    Any help very much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Yes there's a filter on the tube at the bottom of the pump where it fits into the washer bottle. The bottle is under the passenger side wing, easiest way to get to it is underneath, but if you want even more room, pop the front bumper out.

    Pop the pump out and you'll see a rubber piece it fits into that has holes in it, they'll probably be blocked, its very common.

    That's a great guide there! Didn't think there would be a how to on this, plus the search function doesn't work on my phone. Thanks to everyone for the help!
