Windscreen washer pump and stray plugs

Car was driven into a gate at slow speed on front left corner. Windscreen washer didnt work and I thought a plug may have come out. Found a stray plug behind bumper, so went looking for where it went. Upon searching around washer bottle, found another two plugs, none of which fit each other.

If the washers are still not working then check the fust as this may have blown, as for the extra plugs you will find that this wiring loom is used on all astra models and they will be for things not fitted on your model hope this helps you josh

    thought plugs may have been extras from wiring harness, but as for fuse, I believe it is on the same one as the wipers, which still work. There is no sound from the pump, so maybe that needs to be replaced. Thankyou for your help.

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

Windscreen washers stopped working. all fuses ok,wipers working ok.front & back washers not working


Hi, First check that you have wash liquid in tank. second make sure that it will not freeze by putting alcohol in your mix of water and soap. You can buy it already mixed at most service stations. Check pump for corosion on contacts.
Good luck.

Honda accord 2000 front windscreen washer NOT WORKING REAR ONE IS


Just the washer fluid pump is not working? It will have a separate pump for the front and back washers. If it is not a fuse problem then it may be a dead pump. You can check the connection by putting a voltage tester on the pump plug and activating the switch, see if you get power there. If you do, then remove and test the pump. If that is faulty .. replace.

Windscreen washers


Fords have a common problem with their washer pumps. for the last 12 years ford have fitted a plastic mesh over the inlet to the washer pump, this blocks up with the build up of crystalized washer fluid. fords official protocol says to use a small sharp object the size of a pencil to peirce the mesh and allow the flow of water. Also most washer bottles can be accessed via the front wheel arch. simple undo the fixings and pull the innier plastic wheelarch out the way and pull the pump out of the bottle. they are never fixed in just wedged in.

Rear Window Sprayer not working.


Rear washer pump is located near bottom of washer reservoir, below the left front wheel house extension and between left inner and outer fenders. Have some operate the rear washer switch while you listen in this area to find out if the the pump is running. The hose from the pump routes up along side the reservoir filler neck, into the engine compartment. Just aft of the reservoir neck an in-line connector joins the hose to the engine compartment hose. The engine compartment hose travels the top left front fender wheel house to the dash panel, passing through a grommet into the passenger compartment. In the passenger compartment, another connector joins the engine compartment hose, and then up through the front driver pillar to the headliner, then above the headliner along the left roof to the rear of the vehicle. It comes out above the lift gate, in the hinge gap, and into the lift gate to the nozzle.

Not likely to be stopped up. First find out if the pump is running, and that there's fluid in the reservoir. Look for fluid running out somewhere near the reservoir. The pump isn't running, or the hose is disconnected around the tank. Look for leaks (when running the pump, and reservoir filled) at the lift gate hinge joint.
