    Default water washer pump

    My new falcon seems to have poor pressure on the washer jets compared to my old falcon,.. is the pump a simple change?

    Pretty much. You might need to have to take the bumper off to get better access but then it just pulls out of the bottle. Check the rubber filters not just gummed up before getting a new pump.

    what the hell is a falcon? if its a vectra c jack up the front left wheel remove inner wheel arch covering and you can see the pumps without taking the bumper off and you pull the pump up and out if you need to disconect the water hoses, warm with a lighter the rubber ring around the part that joins the hose to the pump, makes job much easier

    No need to jack up the car, or remove the inner wheel arch lining. You can do it on the ground and only have to peel the arch lining partially back to gain access to the pump and filter.

    See the HOW2 for details

    Yup, have done this a couple of times myself to gain access to the washer pump.

    Turn the road wheels all the way to the right, couple of small torx screws to take out the plastic liner, and yer in.
