Windscreen washers blocked
My windscreen washers suddenly stopped working. I could hear the pump but no water was getting though. On taking out the pump I found a blocked filter on the base which I thoroughly cleaned and then flushed out the reservoir with a hose. Problem solved I thought. Wrong! Still no water. On disconnecting the pipework I found another blockage between the pump and the connectors on the underbonnet valance. I decided to connect my electric tyre compressor to the pipe at the pump end using an adapter for blowing up footballs, lilos etc. Blockage cleared with minimum effort!
