Re: Frenzied windscreen washers
happened on mine a few months back. i think there is a thread on this already and the conclusion was that if the 'tug' on the stalk is very short it trips the relay out [or somesuch] so it continues spraying and yes it will empty the bottle out and keep spraying. turning the ignition off resets everything and should not be a problem just make sure you hold the stalk back for a fraction of a second before releasing when washing the screen and all should be ok.
another washer related problem the 'y' spliter valve that sits just below the windscreen on my car discharges the full flow through what appears to be a release valve all over the engine as opposed to the screen. checked all possible blockages but it appears to be in the splitter itself any idea what causes this as on inspection there appears to be nothing wrong with it. i guess the part is only a couple of ££ so no major worries i hope.
If ignorance is bliss, why aren’t more people happy?
