Hi

the water could be fozen in the thin pipes, so why there is water in the bottle it can freeze further up, the other thing is that the little motor in the washer bottle is not pushed all the way in, they often pop out in the cold. they just push in.

Hope that helps
Regards
Dan

Windscreen washer not working


Most likely the pump (motor) is gone and needs replacement. However, it is worth checking that fuse allocated to windscreen washer is intact. Furthermore, you may also need to check the wiring for flow of current at lever end (handle on the steering wheel) and wires connecting to pump on the water reservoir.

Windscreen washer pump is frozen, cannot locate it to defrost, Also is there a winter setting on the engine?


If the washer reservoir is frozen, it must have been filled with plain water. It should be filled with washer fluid. Washer fluid contains alcohol to prevent freeze up. To locate the washer reservoir, look for the filler cap, it will say washer fluid on the cap.

Hi

A common problem, down to wind chill. Even with engine hot and the water being warmed up in the screen wash bottle, the jets are wind chilled. At 0°C and your driving at say 30 mph in the snow, the effective temp is - 8°C on the jets.

Firstly use winter screen wash, or full stength stuff, it usually says on the bottle, and will not freeze till minus 10°C or better.

In the morning pour warm water on the jet, not boiling and keep it way from the windscreen. If you can get the insulation they use on micro bore gas pipe, you could try that to help keep those unprotected washer hoses lagged.

Front windscreen wiper wont stop why its a mitsubishi lancer evo4 i was touching the windscreen washer pump which had ceased working wipers came on and wont stop have to take the fuse out to stop them


Most cars turn on the wipers when the washer pump is turned on. Look for a stuck switch or relay in the washer circuit. It seems that the wipers think that the washer is on.

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

Frozen water in windscreen washer reservoir in t reg ford


Remove the hose from bottom of tank, steal your wifes hair blow dryer and melt the ice that way. If you can remove the tank easily place it in a sink full of hot water at that will melt it. They make special additives for windshield washers, but regular rubbing alchohol will work. No matter what you use rub some of it on a small area of your car to make sure it will not damage the paint. Hope this helps
