    Default Screen washers

    Hi

    My windscreen washers seem to have lost all their power. It just trickles out onto the bottom of the screen.

    No leaks in the bottle, motor is working (can hear it). Any ideas????

    Thanks

    Jax

    How does the rear washer work compared to normal?
    Have you checked to see if the water is frozen?

    Four other possibilities if everything is normal

    Failed pump seals
    Replace the pump assembly

    Blocked washer bottle filter
    Replace the washer bottle filter

    Blocked washer jet assembly
    Remove and clean the washer jet assembly (although this normally only affects one, not both)

    Blocked pipe between filter and jets
    Disconnect the washer jet assembly, disconnect the washer bottle filter, and blow through the pipe, from the washer jet

    Not always, I had this last year and it was due to the bottle being partially frozen

    No need for that. Filter is really easy to clean. Someone even did a HOW2

    I had the same problem which turned out to be a small stone in the pipe blocking it, causing it to trickle out.
