Headlamp washers not working on Porsche 911 (996)

My headlamp washers have ceased to work - ie the actual washer unit does not even pop out of the headlamp to release the spray. Any ideas what I should be looking for and/or what might cause this problem?

My head lights work but don't pop up on my 1981 porsche 928

There are two relays in the fuse panel under the front of the passenger footwell mat...board...also there are fuses for the headlamp motors there as well....there should also be a key indicating which fuse is which. And which relay is responsible for headlamp motor operation...I think it is the large on all the way to the right....wiggle while you have the headlamps turned to ON position...see if they pop up.....let me know how it goes...The headlamp relay is problematic on that model.

Headlight gap cover installation

the item you are talking about is the cover for the headlamp washer jet has it got headlamp wash? if so the washer jet has fallen off the headlamp and dropped in the bumper liner, the cover clips on to end of jet if it does not have headlamp wash the cover has 2 clips one on each side but they break and fall off in that case we use epoxy glue to refit it

There are two plastic squares on the front bumper, one of mine has popped out, what are they for and how do you replace them

they hide front headlamp washers.turn lights on get someone to press window washers.the head lamp washer will pop out ,grab it there should be a cross shaped bit of plastic to clip it back on.if you miss it you will have to turn off ignition & try again as they only work every sixth time.

Hello- I realized today that my headlamp high-pressure washers are not working. Any ideas? I have a 2007 Saab 9-7x 5.3i Matt

there are two washer pumps in the washer fluid tank. The pump for the headlamp washers may be faulty.

Replace brakelight in trunk of 300m

NOTE: Some moisture accumulation inside a vented headlamp unit is normal. Moisture will vent from tubes or vents located on the back of the unit. This normal condition will appear as a fogging on the inside of the headlamp lens (similar to the fog that sometimes appears on the inside of the windshield). This moisture may be removed by activating the headlamps on high beam for 15 minutes.

If water droplets larger than 1 mm in size have accumulated on the inside of the headlamp lens, the headlamp unit should be replaced.

Release hood latch and open hood.
Disconnect and isolate the battery negative remote cable.
Remove the one bolt retaining the washer bottle filler neck and move aside.
Remove the two bolts retaining the speed control servo and move aside.
Remove fasteners to upper radiator crossmember:
Two jack screws on each side.
Three crossmember retaining bolts on each side.
Three push pin fasteners across top of grille.
Gently pry back grille and remove the two bolts to front crossmember. This will allow you to move the crossmember forward, pivoting at the radiator grille, to access the headlamp unit.
NOTE: Once the crossmember is loose, take care not to scratch the fenders.

Maneuver the headlamp unit to remove from behind fascia. Gentle prying of fascia may be needed to clear it enough to remove the headlamp unit.
Disconnect the lamp connectors and transfer lamps if replacing unit.
Release hood latch and open hood.
Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
Remove jackscrews attaching headlamp to body (Headlamp Housing – Intrepid).
Remove headlamp from body.
Disconnect wire connector from headlamp and parking, side marker, and turn signal lamps.
Remove headlamp housing from vehicle
