156 Headlight washers packed in...

The headlight washers on my 2000 156 have packed up. They have worked at one point but not for a while. I understand the lights need to be on for them to work but they still dont. Can anyone suggest a way i can fix this problem...?

You just need to describe your situation differently. Personally, I say: "my 156 has had the headlight washer jets disabled".

A lot of 156 owners remove them, fill in the hole as they are next to useless and just use up the washer fluid like there's no tomorrow.

I agree. I hated them my 156 as they wasted fluid, were useless and made the car dirty more quickly.

Pump: inside inner wing? Fuse? Relay? Bad connection?

Mine will also be stopping working soon as all they do is bake washer fluid onto the headlamp glass & make the headlights next to useless.

If you're determined you want them to work, get a pin & make sure all the jets are clean; it's probably the pump tho'.
