Aircon and washer problems

Hi all,

I have recently just purchased a 155 V6 (33 garaged waiting for parts) for very little money and although it runs beautifully have found the windscreen washers don't work. I can hear the motor but I don't even get a trickle of water from the jets. Also, the air con doesnt work and seems to have been bypassed to homemade switch in order for the blowers (fan) inside the car to work. Have spoken to my local mechanic who says "the rear stat has gone". does anyone know what a rear stat is, and if so how much pain I will have to go through to replace it.

If anyone could help with any of the above it would be appreciated.

Many thanks in advance

Re: Aircon and washer problems

with the washer jet, i would say the none return valve has gone, this is under the plastic cover sited below the wiper arms, i had the side pop on the valve so when i tried the jets it would just fill the drain below the windscreen!, easy fis pop a screw in the hole all done, but the valve stops working tho, so uou have to prime the pipe work before it hits th screen each time!
