window screen jet stopped working........front and back
« on: January 12, 2014, 09:24:39 PM »
hi there, here is a new issue. 2wks ago I had a water leak in the passenger side foot well, then I notice that when I was try to use the rear window screen jet washer it had stopped working and when I looked down in the well there was water coming in from under the plastic cover, ever time I used the rear jet. So I removed the panel and found the rear water pipe supply the the jet had come apart so I fixed that. Now the problem is my front and rear jet have stopped working the fuse is fine and the problem is intermittent some days the front works and then stops but the back is not working full stop any ideas or guidance would be great  ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

Sounds like either dodgy electrical contacts or a pump on the brink of seizing/ packing up to me. When the washers are not working (being operated but not delivering any water), can you hear the pump running at all? Might be worth disconnecting the washer pipes from the pump and getting somebody to operate the washers front and back, see if the pump is delivering water.

If the pump is delivering water one way but not the other though, that sounds like an internal fault, unless it's dodgy contacts causing it to lose power intermittently.

Not true, probably your easiest way in is to unscrew and pull out/ down the front end of the nearside front wheelarch liner (I think most of the screws are either size 20 or 25 torx heads), and with the wheels on full right hand lock that should allow you to get to the washer pump, pipes and connectors.
