156 - front screen washer jet problem
The front windscreen washer jets on my 156 saloon have become increasingly feeble over the last 6 months or so, to the point that only the driver's side one actually manages to get any water onto the screen, and it's just a sporadic fine mist.
The motors themselves seem to be making all the right noises, and there's nothing obvious blocking the bit where the water emerges from (sorry if I'm getting too technical for you). And yes, I have checked that there's actually water in the washer tank!
I've had a search on this forum for possible fixes, but no to avail. Does anyone have any solutions on how to rectify this problem? Is there an easy way to clean the tubes or something? With winter on the way I really want to sort this out but would rather not make a trip to my friendly local dealer.....
