Question about 1986 Renault Sport

1 Answer

I have a Renault 225 sport cup. The problem I have is with the water bottle for the washers. This has been smelling really badly for some weeks and when I spray the windscreen the smell inside the car is horrendous. I have tried washing it out with diluted bleach and changed the screen wash I am using but to no avail the smell just comes back. Help

Are you sure the smell comes from the washer water and not the air conditioner? If the washer water smells you will smell it strongest on the windscreen on the outside of the car. Check this to be sure you have located the source of the smell.

Commonly smells inside the car come from the air conditioner because there is mould growing on the air filters. These can be taken out and cleaned to get rid of the smell. Look in your user manual for guidance on how to do it.

Windscreen Washer Motor not functioning. What shall I do ??


Hi

Are you sure it is not just frozen? if it is not then got to the water bottle and you will be able to see the black motor with the wires coming out, these things tend to last a long time and most often if they are not working it is a loose wire or siezed up with the cold.

Do you know the location of the water bottle? if not get back to me and I can send you a picture. Also I am assuming this is a Renault Clio??

Regards
Dan

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

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

disconnect the washer bottle plug connector. then run alive and earth wire direct from battery to washer motor to see if motor works that way, if does then new need a new washer switch on the steering column. if not then replace washer motor. should work after that unless pipes blocked.
