Hi My windscreen washer doesn't work. I pull the stalk and nothing happens. The wiper action does work but the jet function doesnt. I have a 2003 aero. The washers were working and then stopped on my way...


Assuming the washer fluid is topped up, can you hear the washer motor buzzing? If you can then could be jets blocked or pipe come off! Is there water leaking under car?

Washer jets not working


Step 1:

Hi Nicola

First thing to check will be making sure you hear the washer bottle motor working, when you operate the washer jets inside your car.If you can hear it, then you know that works, if it does not work, then you need to check the fuse has not blown, if it has replace the fuse with the same color fuse. Then check to see if it works. If it does not work then you need a new pump.

Step 2:

Pull of the main pipe to your jets, Then operate your washers again, There should be water coming out of the pipe.

Step 3:

If no water comes out, Pull the pipe of the washer pump on the washer bottle & operate your washers, if no water comes out, then you will need to take out the motor & check it is not blocked.

Step 4:

If the water does come out, then you need to check that pipe witch runs down to the washer motor for any kinks in the pipe, or just disconnect the pipe, try blowing through it, U should be able to blow through it easily, If not there will be a kink in the pipe, or the pipe will be blocked, so then the pipe needs to be kink free, unblocked, or a new piece of pipe installed.

Step 5:

If step 2 works, Then your jets are blocked.

Step 6:

To unblock them, Get a needle & push the needle through the whole in the jet to unblock it.

Step 7:

Do the same for all the jets, Put the pipes back on, Then operate the washers. They will work.

Step 8:

If you have any problems let me know. :)

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

No front washer jets


well the easiest way to tell if the motor is working properly and the hose and the {Jets are not frozen / clogged up is to remove the hose to the pump or from one of the jets to see if fluid comes out when activated ....some washer fluid will freeze up in the line etc if it is not winter blend ..rendering warmer weather temperature fluid useless
this is the easiest way in determining this

98 Hyundai Accent, front windscreen wash not spraying Pump runnin


If you dont have access to compressed air and a blow gun , to blow down the jets, then use a needle and try to clear the jets, and then try the wshers, you will have to adjust the jets after. If you still have nothing, or it is very weak, then remove the pipe and blow down it , also with the pipe off, try the washer pump to see if it is pumping strongly, because, although the pump is working/making a noise, it may be too weak, in which case you will need to replace the pump.
Hope this helps

Windscreen washer does not work on renault megane coupe sports motor works but no fluid comes out do not want to take washer bottle out any ideas please


i Just fixed a problem with a renault megan washer motor. If the motor makes a noise but is not pumping any water & the jets@ the windscreen are clear, then pull the suqirter motor out off the washer bottle( the bottle stays in place ) it just pulls out from underneith the bottom stone tray& may need to remove bottom bolt, inner lower wheeel arch. Right Now where the black & white squirter come out of the motor gentlywith a screw driver pop these off together. ( test motor again) ( put in water ) Then with Snap ring plires & part the white & black outlets apart & you will find a rubber seal that looks like it must of grown. When it grows it blocks both ports off. you need to shorten the rubber & keep it flat as remember its job seems to block off either the front or rear port. if it not a good finish you may get water coming out of the front & the rear ifeg your working the front squirters

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
