Front Wipers / Wahser
« on: March 20, 2018, 09:04:27 AM »
Hi

Was fine until the recent snow and even after clearing all the snow off the car the wipers were working fine.

later in the afternoon it appears that the front wipers only have stopped working. there is no sound as if it was struggling. the back wipers are still operating fine. Fuse 24 is fine.

What i did notice is also the front washer is also not working. there is no sound that it is trying to pump the water like i normally hear. although when i try to use it the back wiper starts as if the washer has worked.

is there something linking the 2 together which could have happened or is it a case of having to go through diagnosing the front wipers. ie teardown etc.

thanks

NVM

Changing the 33 fuse has fixed it as that was blown. Thanks for the solution.

does this mean there is a fault elsewhere for this to blow or is it all interlinked?

anyway thanks again @Chrispb

Always the one to check if we've had snow :)

The handbook doesn't list it as being allocated to the wipers as well as auxiliary heater and air conditioning
