Windscreen washer jets not working

Question

Posted · Report post

Sooo, I got another EJ6 on saturday but the washer jets aren't working as i discovered on the M54 today, with a salty windscreen.

I've filled it up so there's definately enough fluid in there, but the pipes look empty. There's no whirring from the motor(?) either when used.

What could it be? Bad fuse or motor or something?

Cheers
Matt

check the fuses as said. or just operate the pump and get a mate to see if its got feed with a test light or multimeter, if not then its the fuse, broken wire or switch fault. chances are its just the fuse, it might have gone if you tried to operate the pump with the washer fluid frozen Edited by eg-greeny

I've checked the fuse and it's intact, the same fuse does the front wipers aparently. If it's the motor I can replace it as i've got my other EJ6 parked on a driveway. Where's the motor on the reserve, and what's it connected with - bolts or screws?

Cheers all

remember that EK and EG wash fluid bottles are located inside the front bumper, quite a distance from the engine, so can easily freeze

mine arent working either, i recently cut back some wire to tidy up the back ---> [IMG]http://i1080.photobucket.com/albums/j329/dibzy2/photo3-4.jpg[/IMG]

since then mine havent worked and im just wondering if any of the wiring from the back of the car has anything to do with them? i still have the wiring if i need to put it back. Also im a noob to all this and i dont know where the fuse is located for them either

any help would be great :)
