    Default Washers not washing!!

    Hi guys hope you can help.
    The windscreen washers on my '03 Signum (fr and rr) are not working checked the obvious (fluid) , and the motors can be heard but at best all you get is a dribble. This leads me to think there must be a blockage some where.... but where?
    Help!!!! at this time of year this is the last thing you need.
    Cheers.

    if you have a look under the front left wheel arch/ bumper you will see the washer bottle im sure on the inner side of the bottle yuou will see the motor pull the motor out just held in with a rubber seal. in the bottem of the motor mines was full of **** quick clean its been fine since also i found it easer to undo a few of the torx screws that hold the inner arch linning pull the arch linning back you can get in there a bit easier hope this helps

    Thanks I'll give it a go. Always easier to ask than go blindly pulling the car apart.

    That's why these forums are invaluable, I'm competant enough to do jobs like this but my wife would have just taken it to the nearest Vaux dealer and before you know where you are your looking at the thick end of heafty bill for something very trivial.
    That is if it is only a blockage.
