    Default Washers stopped working

    I have just had to fill the washer bottle up in the car (the car was whinging it was getting empty) and now the washers don't work both front and rear.

    When I pull the stalk I can hear the pump going but nothing comes out.
    If I use the rear washer then I can still hear the pump and after a while something will come out.

    I originally thought that there was a blockage betwen the pump and the bottle but how does the water get to the rear?

    I guess I'm going to have to take the plastic out from around the passengers side wheel arch to get at the pump and bottle and give it a good clean.

    Any other ideas?

    I totally emptied mine the other day, and when I refilled it didn't work.

    I started to rapidly switch them on and off and eventually they started working again. Maybe yours would do the same??
