Howto change wash pump for windshield wiper sys

There's leakage from the bottom of wash pump. I plan to replace it by myself. Is there any tricky? Looks like all I need is to unplug the wire and replace the pump on hand. Thanks in advance. Oh, my car is a 2000 330i E46.

Hi my name is Allen!

The pump is held in by a rubber crommet, just pull it straight out, but when going back in lube the rubber with WD40 or any kind of lubricant, this will help with installation without damaging the rubber.

For further assistance contact me at FixYa!

In my 2007 Saturn Vue there is what I think is an air pump which is cracked that one port is not connected to anything.


There is a electric motor that pumps washer fluid . Located in the bottom of the washer fluid tank .
Wash Operation (Front and Rear Wipers)
The front and rear washer systems use the same windshield washer fluid pump. When either the front or rear wiper is in the washer position voltage will be supplied to one side of the windshield washer fluid pump (depending on whether it is front or rear), while the other side of the pump is grounded.
At this point, the windshield washer fluid pump sprays solvent onto the windshield. When the front or rear washer is activated, the BCM receives an input from the switch that is activated. The BCM will control the wipers while in the WASH mode. The BCM will control either the front wiper relay or the rear wiper relay to turn on the wipers. The windshield wipers operate at low speed for 3 swipes and returns to the park position.

When turning on the washers do you hear the motor run ? Have some one try it while you listen at the washer fluid tank ! These pump motors do go bad .
turn OFF the ignition.
Disconnect the harness electrical connector of the windshield washer fluid pump.
Connect a test lamp from the windshield washer pump control circuit to a good ground .
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Press the front washer switch.
Does the test lamp illuminate?
YES or NO !

How do you replace the windshield wiper pump


Owner's manuals are not intended to assist in this type of repair. You need a shop manual, and even they may not cover this part. I don't know your mitsu, but in general two types of pumps are used. One type mounts to the bottom of the fluid reservoir, while the other is mounted to the wiper motor. Most aftermarket replacements come with instructions, but if you have bought an OEM part guess it did not. If the pump is on bottom of tank, remove the tank and it should be simple to replace. If made onto the wiper motor, these can be a bit tricky. If that is the case, you may want to have the dealer install the part.

2007 hyundai entourage windshield wiper motor linkage?


While I was changing out struts on my 2007 Entourage, I had to remove the wiper motor. It was easy to do it, 4 - 10mm bolts and it was out.

Getting to the motor took a little more work but is not impossible. You have to remove the windshield vent cover (not sure what it's called), it's located at the bottom of the windshield, and when the hood is up, you can remove the wiper arms and those trim pieces and get to the motor easily.

This is a good general video that will show you how to roughly remove everything, granted this is a strut replacement video, but the beginning is what would be important to you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpSIv3mk98k
Hope that helps!

Windshield washers not pumping water to windshield


The most common problem I find in this season, is having summer 32 deg. F freezing windshield wiper fluid in the tank rather than -20 deg. F freezing windshield wiper fluid.

Try to warm up the car by parking it in a heated garage until the windshield wiper fluid thaws. Then, try to use it all up, and add the 'winter' vs. the 'summer' formula of windshield wiper fluid.

If this does not solve the problem, the pump might be burnt out, in my experience.

You should hear a humming sound as you depress the button for windshield wiper fluid inside of the car.

Good luck on this repair.

My windshield wipers work but I cant squirt windshield cleaner


it's likely the tiny motor/pump located at the bottom of the tank that has failed. to confirm this have some turn on the washer fluid switch and test for voltage at the pump. there are several aftermarket pumps you can use as a replacement.

Broken rear windshield wiper


advance auto stores replace wiper blades for free if you buy it from them.If the wiper arm needs to be replaced it has a nut at the bottom of it under a plastic cover.It bolts onto a shaft with splines on it so after replacing it turn it on and check it.You may have to loosen the nut and move to adjust it to get it in the correct position.
