    Default Help with screen wash

    Hi. I have had my 2001 vectra for 7 months now and ilove it. I have just come across my first problem. When i try and use the screen wash it takes ages to come out then barely hits the window. Then if i try again in a minute it takes ages again to come out, almost like there is a split in the hose but i cant find any leaks. Anyone else had this problem ?


    Thanks Alan.

    Sounds like pump blocked slightly and also non return valve either missing or faulty.

    Think I recall someone suggested a 'seredent' tablet as a quick fix. The bottle is located behind the wheel arch trim nearside. Remove wheel & trim should see you ok. Nothing like a clean up hth ............
