    If you have a tyre compessor, then remove tube from nozzle and put end of compressor with the pointy adaptor I think used for footballs and the like into the end and switch on this should get rid of blockage. Did this to mine when they wouldn't work and have no probs now

    I had this symptom with my car and the solution was really wierd.

    I did the obvious stuff first - checked the pump was OK and that the filter it sits in was clear, and that the nozzles weren't blocked (I replaced the driver side one to be sure). These were all OK but there was still loads of water coming out of the passenger side nozzles but hardly any on the driver side.

    I started disassembling the pipework at the various joins and found that the pipe between the passenger side nozzles and the driver side nozzles had swollen up inside and blocked itself up! In case you haven't looked yet, the pipe runs from the pump in front of the nearside front wheel into the passenger side nozzle and then another pipe connects the passenger side nozzle to the driver side nozzle.

    The pipe is available by the metre from a dealer and the washers on both sides worked fine once the new pipe was in place.
