There is a little rubber hose connected to the tank that goes to the wipers. check to make sure it's not leaking somewhere. also it may be clogged. they are pretty cheap to purchase from autoparts store. also check the nozzels at the wipers where it comes out. they may be dirty. use a small saftey pin to clean them off. gl

Why when i push the button for my winshield my wipers work but no washer fluid comes out and i dont hear the sound like the motor is not running...can anyone help me?


If you have washer fluid in the contaner under your hood, then have someone listen with the hood up to see if the motor on the pump runs. If it does not run you have a loose connection usually at the washer motor or a bad fuze to the water pump. Fuse is in the fuse cluster, usually under the dash.

Windscreen washers have stopped working but the fuse is ok and the wipers are still working


Check if you have fluid in the washer bottle. Take a fine needle and clear out the nozzles that spray on the screen, try the washer again, you should be able to hear the motor running. If there is no sound, check the motor/pump, it will be located near or in the washer bottle. The wiper and washer normally share the same fuse.

My front windshield wiper pump does not pump washer fluid but the wipers work fine , the back wiper and pump works


First make sure you have water in washer reservoir, with ignition on reds (not started) then get someone to operate washer while bonnet is closed otherwise the wipers (may come on) may damage your bonnet (would also be a good idea to throw some water on your screen before commencing), listen for a buzzing noise, if you can hear that noise than your washer motor is ok, if not - if fitted with fuse check it and if fuse is ok than your motor needs attention. If motor is ok than while someone is operating the washer motor look under the car to see if there is any water leaking, if there is water leaking than the hose going from your washer bottle to your washer nozzles has come off somewhere, visually check this hose, usually small diameter and clear in colour, reconnect or replace it. If there is no water leak and you have full water and motor is working, than your nozzle, usually located on the bonnet or wiper arms are blocked, this mainly happens after polishing the vehicle. There are 2 main ways of cleaning these nozzles, easiest way is to get a fine pin and poke it several times, this will clean it 85% of the time, if it does not work than you need to find the hose that connects to it and pull apart at a join, closer to the nozzle the better, and give it short burst of compressed air, have to be careful not to pop the hose out at the nozzle as some of them are located in really awkard points, hope this helps.

PLease help- When i pour water in water bottle of my Toyota lucida 94 reg-it pours straight out the bottom, any ideas why ?


What water bottle? If it is the windshield washer, then either the hose, pump, or bottle itself is cracked. Find out exactly where the water is coming out.

If some other bottle, answer the first question.

Thanks, Jim

Windscreen washers not working, obviously has water in the bottle. fuses seem ok and cannot find the electric motor for the pump.


Look for a triple joint under the hood, where left and right one separate. Detach the hose coming from the pump, clean the triple's end and blow to ensure that the the wipers are not jammed. Check the filter as well, should be at the bottle, end of hose, if any at all. The pump together with its wires is probably hidden on the back of the bottle, you will find it by the wires.

E39 touring 2003 front wipers are working but water is not coming from the pipe which is conected to the water bottle, i can hear that motor is running, back wiper is fine. some one told me it could be the...


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.

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.

Ford Taurus 1996-wind screen water squirter not working


You will need a test light/probe to check wether you have power to the windscreen washer bottle motor.If you have power at the motor and it doesnt pump you will need to replace it.Because the wipers are still working its unlikely to be a power supply issue.Can you hear the motor trying to pump when you activate it?If you can hear motor humming then you may have blocked nozzles.Usualy a small sewing needle poked down the squirter nozzles will clear them.Also make sure your water squirter hoses are not blocked and havnt fallen off.
