  1. Washer jets not working: electrical?!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So having some issues with my washer jets, they’ve stopped working (the wipers go when I pull the stalk) The tubes are not blocked. Tried replacing the pump the other month only for it to start working again (I put the new pump on, didn’t work, then the old pump back on which then worked). So...
  2. GT heated washer jets

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Found this via google search. The strange thing is I can not find them if I go to the parts world site for the GT or 147 parts. I have ordered two and it was accepted, let's wait and see. They are also cheaper than the...
  3. MiTo Washer Jets

    Alfa MiTo
    Couple of weekends ago noticed that SHMDO's MiTo washer jet on the passenger side was pretty pathetic .. guessing over 8 years of crud building up in the washer fluid is to blame. But as I'm getting to be a lazy old s*d, thought I'd just buy a couple of new ones and pop them in quickly. Then I...
  4. Windscreen Washer jets

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Brera washer jets packed in, probably down to show , is there a way of taking them apart to try and clear the pipe ?
  5. Dribbly washer jets

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    OK, so a couple of years ago the non return valve on my headlight washers failed. Following advice given on this forum I sourced some cheap valves off the bay and rectified the problem. Now though, when I fill the washer bottle, water dribbles out of the h/l washer jets and may even be sprayed...
  6. Blocked washer jets

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I seem to have blocked the washer jets by trying to eek every last drop out of the them probably drawing up the crud. I've checked they are connected ok in the bonnet so wondered if anyone had found a way to unblock them ? Might give them a blast with the jet wash hose unless there is a...

  9. Heated/unheated washer jets?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    ePER lists both varients for my 159. 156064094 Unheated 'Sprinkle' 156064095 Heated 'Sprinkle' how do i differentiate between the two, physically, so i order the right ones.
  10. no washer jets

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My windscreen washer jets aren't working, since the main washer jet pump does not appear to get power. This is what I have tested so far... The main washer pump manages both front and rear screen washer jets, neither work. If I put key on ignition, no sound is heard from the washer pump when I...
  11. Windscreen washer jets weak spray

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I need to clean out the windscreen washer jet on my Spider as the spray from them is very weak. I presume I just need a needle or a pin to unblock them? Is there anything else I should look at if that doesn't work?
  12. 159 washer jets not working...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    failed finding this in a search. Last year my drivers side window controls stopped working. They started working then, my 159 washer jets stopped firing! This has flipped around again. .. and will fail it's MOT on the washer jets... I don't know what to do! *could cheap LEDs cause this? *had...
  13. 147 Washer Jets

    Alfa GTA
    Hi. I've had a problem with all the washer fluid leaking out for a while and finally got round to investigating today. It turns out that it's because the headlight washer unit itself is broken - the part where the pipe attaches seems to have been broken off and repaired with glue and tie...
  14. Washer Jets

    Alfa GTA
    Where can I buy a replacement? Passenger side is perfect now, but drivers is pants, so pretty sure it's just the jet itself. I heard that MiTo ones are great (fan type) but also suggestions that they fit the 147 only. If they can fit the 156, will this do me? Alfa Romeo MiTo front washer jet...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  16. rear wiper water jets

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Since I have the car the rear wiper always worked but the water jet no. As I am selling it I am trying to fix a couple of things. The pump works very well as I connected it to a 12v source. Got soaked as the water came out of the hole in the pipeline shown. How can I change this pipe? ...
  17. Washer jets work simultaneously frоnt/back - AR147

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Spray water simultaneously front and rear. When spraying water behind: out in back and front at same time... The same happens in reverse. What could be the problem. I replaced the pump, which stands on the court for the water. I thought that the problem is there, but it's not.
  18. 147 rain sensor and headlight washer jets

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    How exactly does the rain sensor work? I've followed the instructions for operation in the owners manual, but all I get is the normal intermittent wiper setting. Had a look at the rain sensor on the windscreen after I got to work this morning, and there's what looks like a little air bubble or...
  19. windshield washer jets spray too far

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello everybody My 159 has a problem when the windshield washer jets are getting activated. They spray too far which means thatwhen they are activated i can see some liquid going on the windshield, on the roof and on the bonnet as well!! I supposed this would be because of faulty washer jets...
  20. 156 washer jets

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Recently replaced both washer jets on my (2004) 156, just spent the last hour trying to adjust them correctly. Is there a special technique or secret password which allow this to happen. All I can do is either spray water over the car or spray water at the bottom of the windscreen
