Just replaced the pump on my 07 santa fe. Not hard really, and can be done in 1hr. You have to start by disconnecting the positive side of the battery. Then disconnect the two (2) wire harnesses leading to the passanger side headlight. Remove the two top screws from the headlight on passanger side and the nut on the back side of the lamp assembly close to the radiator. Pull out headlight. May be a bit though but a little wriggling and light pulling, will free it out. Now you have to remove the front bumper shroud. There are 3 bolts on the top along the hood latch area and the plastic push pins all need to come out. (this would be a good time to tell you that you may want to have some extra push pins on hand as I had to replace 3 that I broke taking out.) There is 1 screw on both driver side and passanger side up under the wheel wells that need to come out (where the shroud and the front quarter panels meet). And there are about 6 (don't remmeber for sure) push pins along the bottom of the shroud as well. DO NOT remove the green (or blue) screw at the bottom. This is the radiator drain plug. Give the shroud a light pull starting from the passenger corner and working to the driver side. This will come out with no problems so if it doesn't come out right away, you missed a push pin or screw. See where it is hanging up and look for a push pin there. Now that you took apart your front end, the washer pump is right on the side of the tank. Remove the wire harnes on the pump, the two hoses on either side and gently (GENTLY) lift the tab on top of the pump holding it in and slide the pump right out. If your motor runs and nothing comes out, check for blockage on the pump screen. Mine was completely gummed up and a plastic brush cleaned it right up. If you need a new motor, or after you cleaned your running motor, be sure to flush out the resivor to get rid of any grit and grime before re-assembling the car. Once you get the new pump back in, fill the resivor back up, re-connect your battery, and give it a try. Sometimes your hoses may be plugged up as well so now is a good time to take care of those issues as well. As a word of advice, don't use anything but regular washer fluid. ie: don't use bug wash fluid as it tends go gum up if left sitting for a while. The regular blue liquid or low temp liquid will be fine. My fix cost me pennies (for the push pins) and that was it. Dealer fee would have been $175.00 parts and labor. Good luck and feel good afterwards for saving yourself some money!

SOURCE: Washer doesn't work and I can't hear the pupmp motor working.

The windshield washer pump is part of the windshield wash reservior.
There is an electrical connector located on the bottom of the reservior.
That is the pump .
If the pump is not in the reservior. I would just trace the washer fluid lines from the sprayer on the vehicle back to the pump. The lines just might lead back to the reservior for the windshield wash solution. Then you will have confirmed the pump is in the reservior.

You may have to get a new reservior. The pump might not be seperate item, I am not 100% sure on that.

I also would double check the fuses and any relays related to the washer pump.

Finally, I would check the washer switch if you replace the pump and still is not working .

Good luck

SOURCE: 2000 nissan xterra...windshield washer fluid pump

On the drivers side of the vehicle just behind the front bumper is the washer fluid reservoir. The washer pumps (2 - one for the back and one for the front) are located ont the face of the reservoir.

1) Drain the resevoir. (You can reuse this fluid, so put it in a clean container)
2) Disconnect the wiring harness for the problem pump.
3) Remove the sprayer line.
4) Remove the pump. It is held in by being snapped into a channel on the resevoir and by the rubber grommet. This may take some elbow grease.
5) Remove the old grommet.(If your new pump came with a new grommet)

Installation is reverse. Usually new pumps come with new grommets. If not, it is ok to reuse the old one.

I have a 2007 mustang an the wipers wont turn off I had 2 pull the fuse to turn them off can u help me


The windshield wiper motor is a smart wiper motor with an integrated electronics module. The internal components of the motor are the high/low relay, washer pump relay, and the run/park relay and associated electronics.
The windshield wiper motor receives its inputs from the windshield wiper/washer switch. These signals are ground reference signals. When the switch is placed in different positions, various input signals are selected and sent through circuits to the motor. The windshield wiper motor module identifies these selected input signals and activates the motor to the selected function.!
Your probably going to need a new wiper motor ! ! ! But you should always test before replacing parts !

Where can I purchase fuse #45 for my chevrolet equinox lt 2007 in richmond, va


It sounds as if the windshield washer pump, located at the base of the windshield washer fluid reservoir, has lost it's seal. When this occurs, washer fluid seeps into the pump and shorts it out. I advise that you remove the pump to confirm this before replacing the fuse. A replacement wind washer pump and fuse can be found at your dealer, local auto parts store or the internet (Rockauto.com has always been a great source for quality parts at a very competitive price and I use them all the time). Hope this helps.

Where is the fuse box for my windshield washer?


assuming you are talking about the washer pump then that fuse is the same one powering the wiper motor....fuse #113 in the CJB (central junction box) near the right a-pillar

however... internal to the wiper motor is a relay that runs the washer pump motor
if this needs to be replaced then you are replacing the whole wiper motor assembly
