I have not seen a remote filter for these they are usually on the motor itself. Take the hose loose from the pump and see if it is actually pumping out water or is it just running. If it is pumping pretty strong trace the rubber tube up to the wipers and make sure there is no breaks in it anywhere.

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. :)

E39 front wipers are not working but water is coming out


No water should not come out of the front of an air conditioner. The front part of the air conditioner needs to be raised slightly higher than the back.

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

The jet is probably blocked. Remove the pipe from the jets and see if water comes from the pipe. If it does, blow the jets free using compressed air, normally you can use the local garage tyre inflater, or a friendly repair garage will give them a squirt for free.
If water doesn't come through when you test, then the pipe may be blocked or even split. If blocked you can take it off and blow free using your mouth, and if split just replace.

My Kia 2003 rio front windscreen water not working


Take off the pipe at the pump then use the washer switch and see if the water sprays out. To check if the pump is working you will need someone to use the switch while you hold your hand on the pump you should feel or hear the pump working. If the pump is going but no water spraying blow back through it and try again. If it dosent work then you will probably need a pump.
