    My headlight washers have packed up. The windscreen washers are fine and i believe they should be working in unison, so that eliminates an empty washer bottle/faulty motor solution. I dont seen to be able to get the washer jets out of the bumper. Do i need to remove the bumber to get at them...

    Hi guy, just have the windscreen washers on my 156. Firstly I'm not sure if there is high enough pressure. The water pretty much hits the wipers and doesnt go any further up the windscreen. I've put a pin in the end of the nozzles and they seem clear. But I'm at a loss as to how to fix it...

    Since i fitted flat wiper blades to my 156 i've been unable to adjust the washer jets so that the spray hits the windscreen, it either hits the blade or goes over the roof. I was wondering if anyone has tried converting their washers to the system that i've seen on some Mercs and on lots of...

    No power behind the spray just a crappy squirt which doesnt even hit the middle of the screen.. Do I need a new pump? Or are the lines dirty? I know nothing about these.

    I wonder if anyone else has experienced this? When I use my windscreen washers they won't switch off. The only way I can stop them is by turning the engine off. Has anyone got any idea what the cause can be? Thanks in advance :)

    hi can anyone help im loosing all my screenwash through my headlight washer jets
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Can this be easily done? It's getting to that time of year again when the windscreen can need need washing every few minutes, and I resent lobbing loads of water over the headlights (for little benefit with no wipers!) as it uses the water up in no time and just puts streaks all over the car...

    Hi, My 156'S wiper washers have stopped working !! Is the washer pump a weakness on the 156 ? Where is it located to check ? Is there anything else it could be ? Any advise would be welcome. Regards, C h r i s ( 2000 X 156 Sportwagon 2.0 T.S.)

    Ive got a Sept 2000 156 Twinspark and have a problem with my headlamp washers not working. Ive hooked up a +12V supply to the pump and the immediate dampness on my tshirt is evidence of correct opperation. Ive checked that the negative side i grounded. The problem is that there is no switched...
