97 Jeep Cherokee Sport Windshield Washer Pump Replacement

I own a 97 Jeep Cherokee that needs to have the windshield washer pump replaced. What would the best way to go about that?

I have seen some stuff on-line that would lead me to believe that I would have to remove the front quarter panel on the driver's side in order to do that. I would certainly hope that wouldn't be the only way.

Thanks

    I have the same problem with the washer pump, but this solution doesn't seem to make sense. Is the only way to access the pump by removing the quarter panel?

Go with the solenoid first, it's more likely and may even be easier to replace, the crank sensor is hard to get to and usually not the culprit, it it were the problem jump starting wouldn't work

Remove the windshield wipers. Pull away from windshield until and use a screwdriver to pry clip on bottom of wiper arm and remove entire arm from mount. Now remove shroud that is under wiper arms you just replaced. After you move the shroud, you should be able to get at the pump.

    I didn't see the washer pump under the shroud on my 1997 jeep cherokee? I saw the motor (wipers work fine) and the washer reserve signal switch. Where is the washer pump located?

Where is the fuse for the water pump for the window washer


A washer pump in a car's windshield wiping system moves washer fluid from a reservoir through hoses. The motorized pump pressurizes the fluid to allow it to be squirted from the hoses through nozzles onto the front and/or rear windshield of a car. The washer fluid helps windshield wipers get rid of rain, dirt, or other objects that can interfere with a driver's visibility. If your washer fluid is not being sent out when activated, the solution could simply be filling the washer system's reservoir with more fluid or cleaning the nozzles and hoses. In more severe cases, the washer pump may need to be replaced. Here are steps to troubleshoot a windshield-washer pump.

Hi...I have a 1999 Jeep cherokee Sport. The windshield washer quit..dont know if it is a clogged line or a pump. Not hearing the pump when I activate. Also lines appear to be hidden.


This is most likely due to the washer pump going out. I just replaced mine on my 2000 cherokee. There is a front and back pump which is located under the drivers side fender. You will have to remove the plastic corner bumper to get access to the pumps. This is an easy job to do yourself. Dont forget to have something ready to drain the fluid into when you remove the pump from the washer tank. The front pump is located below the rear pump.

2001 jeep cherokee windshield washer pump not working


Can you hear the washer pump run when it is activated? If so check for a split small hose at the washer reservoir. You may need to repalce the pump. It is in the bottom for the washer fluid reservoir.

What fuse controls the windshield washer pump? on a 2001 Jeep Che


usually it's in the washer bottle which is usually in the fender well, ahrd to get to.
The fuse that controls it should be listed in your owners manual. Usually a 10 amp fuse in the fuse panel inside the car usually on the instrument panel somewhere.

You have a motor for the front and rear washer. Check the fuses. If the intermitted wipers does not work, there is a relay under the dash near the steering colum that needs to be replaced.
