Question about 2000 Honda Accord

Fit new rear 'windscreen washer nozzle' on 2003 Accord

Old assy came off during car wash leaving its 'pipe' in plastic water tube. That tube then fell back into recess between roof & roof lining. When I remove a few lining 'clips' above rear screen I can just get hold of tube but a) I can't push it through its hole hence b) I can't remove broken pipe and hence c) I can't fit new pipe/nozzle assy. Can I 'pull the tube to extend it ('60mm would probably do) and/or can I release it temporarily from its attachment to the water reservoir (or from some other accesible place) ? I am afraid to lower the roof lining too much!!!
Any advice appreciated Thanks Mike Stockford

Landrover Discovery 300tdi 1997 Windscreen Washer Diagram


Hello! The rear washer tubing runs from the reservoir up thru the front corner support column, thru the roof and over to the door. The tubing run from the reservoir to rear door washer jet differs between left and right hand drive vehicles. On right hand vehicles the tubing run is on the left hand side of the roof. On left hand drive vehicles, the right side.

Normally, there is always fluid present in the tubing, thus no priming is necessary and it prevents any clogging... The rear washer jet is is more than likely plugged... Guru...saailer

How do you fix low pressure on windshield washer fluid sprayer.


Its just plugged up, probably right at the nozzle it's a pretty tiny hole. To clear it out you need to find a small diameter wire that will fit inside the hole to clear the blockage. Something like a small gauge sewing needle or a straight pin. It can also get plugged up in the rubber tubing. Usually you can just blow through it with lung power. Just pull the tube off at the nozzle and run the washer this will tell you if it's the nozzle or the tubing.

Wiper fluid keeps freezing drained all old wiper fluid and put in rain x -25 and it still froze


Rain X should have alleviated the freezing problem assuming that you circulated enough of it through the tubing and through the nozzles before it froze again.

Maybe try to disassemble the nozzle and soak in the Rain X solution or warm water to unfreeze it.

Trace the piping or tubing to the place where the frozen water exists and eliminate the ice by warming it up.

You may take the whole vehicle to a heated garage and let it thaw out, then circulate the fluid by pushing the button or switch to operate the windshield wiper fluid pump.

Blocked pump for window wash , no water coming through onto windscreen.can i clear this myself? or does it need to go to garage?.


If the pump runs then the nozzles are blocked. Use a pin or needle to clear the blockage from the nozzle.(Stick it in the little hole pointed at the windscreen.) Be careful not to break the pin off in the nozzle.
See if you are able to pull the pipes off from the underside of the nozzles. Clear the nozzle using the pin. Then point the pipe into the underside of the nozzle and activate the washer in order to rinse the nozzle.

Windscreen washers weren't working. connection to the jets had come undone.(probably due to frozen water in the pipe) tried to reconnect and one plastic pipe broke close to the connection.(about 2,1/2...


if i understand what you are saying correctly, the line leading to the nozzles in the hood broke, not the nozzles themselves. if the line broke in the middle somewhere, you can go to the auto parts store and buy a piece of rubber vacuum line, just slightly larger than the plastic line and use the rubber line as a splice. has to be a very tight fit or the rubber will leak or blow off when under pressure. if you have a set of measuring calipers, you can measure the plastic line, or just cut off a very small section and take it with you.

Windscreen washer makes a noise but no water comes out


Hello king_robe.
Not sure if you're sorted yet, it could be as simple as a tear in the pipe close to the reservoir. In my case (on an 01 520) the tube / pipe burst during freezing conditions. I filled the reservoir with screen wash and noticed suds dripping onto the drive. although this doesnt solve the problem, hope it helps you to fix it.

How do I unblock BMW 320i windscreen washer?


Hi,

Put a cupful of something like cillit Bang in the reservoir, fill the system up with a hose pipe and leave the hose running. Operate the washers until the water runs clear. Turn the hose off and empty the reservoir. Refill with the correct concentration of screen wash, job done for about 10p!

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Ford Focus rear screen washer pipe diconnected at


Ir should just be a rubber hose. Just slide it back onto the fitting again. If the plastic tail has broken off the nozzle you will need to get another from Ford to replace it before hooking it back up.

Peugeot 1007 windscreen washer water jets


Hi

It is usually the fuse. This blows very easily.(eg Ifyou operaten the washers when the fluid is frozen or partially frozen)

Look in your handbook. And in the fuse box in the engine compartment
