washers

  1. Alfa 164 & 166
    My headlamp washers aren't working, any ideas? Anyone know where all the electrical connections/fuses are for the washers? The windscreen washers work fine, it's just the heaflamp washers. There are no water leaks, so it's looking like an electrical issue. The water tank was totally emptied...

    Daft question time - Im in the process of changing over my rear springs - my spring pan arms were powerflexed a long time ago....... Some thin metal washers 'fell out' on the floor when I removed the long outer bolt to separate the springpan from the hub from the wishbone and I didnt see...

    Ok, so after 2 days of owning my 2001 156 the washers have packed in. Didnt realise there was no handbook (oopps). Done the obvious and checked the water (full) dont know where the fuses are :confused: any help appreciated. Daft question but I assume that the headlight washers are linked to...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So my headlamp washers are leaking as the stop/check valve is no longer doing any of that stopping stuff. As I see it I have two obvious choices: 1. Disconnect the pump / take out the relay / stop off the hose - thus sidestepping the issue and disabling the washers entirely or 2. Replace the...

    Hi, My window washers have decided to stop working, I was wondering if anyone had a wiring diagram for them to locate relays and any fuses other than the one in the dashboard. I've checked the one in the dash and it is ok. There doesn't seem to be any power getting to the motor. Cheers, Carty.
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I removed the non-return valve in the windscreen washer 3 years ago. I made allowances for the extra time for the pipes to fill and the car has passed MOT's since without a problem but.... The spray now, particularly on the driver's side, is pathetic. The pump seems to works fine. With the...

    Barley got any water coming out on to the windscreen but I can hear the motor working. Anyone know what it could be.?????
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, Can anyone help me, the water to my washers is coming out into the engine instead of the jets. Seems to be coming out of some sort of pressure release pipe that points towards the engine, when i block one of these with my finger it comes out the jets perfectly, i dont really want to block...

    Anyone know which fuse feeds the headlight washers? Also how do they work on the face lift version. It looks like they should pop up and the cover should flip up out of the way.
  12. Alfa Giulietta
    I noticed yesterday that, while the windscreen washers on my Giulietta work as expected, when I use the rear screen washer there is a dribble of water from the front jets. It is not strong enough to reach the screen but is more than an odd drop that might have been left in the nozzle. Has...
  13. Alfa Giulietta
    I thought I would share my experience with everyone in case any one else has had this problem. I have just finished sorting out a problem with the front washers on my G. I thought they were frozen up so I flipped up the bonnet to find water running out from between the bonnet lid and the...

    156 washers will not work, fuse is fine sometimes relay can be heard others, no.. Also has headlight washers which appear too also not be working. Am i right in thinking this is the motor itself? Hard too get to?
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello folks... Has anyone had any experience with faulty windscreen washers? My 156s washers stopped working last week. I though that the reservoir just needed topping up. However even after filling they still didn't work. On closer inspection I can hear the pump working and there is a small...
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Over the last very frosty mornings i just accepted that the washers were frozen, i pulled on the stalk yesterday and hey perfecto water appeared on the front screen. I thought i would give the rear screen a wash too, pushed the stalk hearing the water pump spring into action but nothing, until...
  17. Alfa 145 & 146
    Hi guys, I was preparing my car for the MOT yesterday, and found out that my headlight washers are not working anymore. I checked the fuse (OK). I read somewhere that when the tank gets empty, there could get air into the hoses, which is a pain to get out. So I removed the fuse for the...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, My pre facelift 156 seems to have a problem with the window washers. From what I can see, there's one on the left and right of the windscreen (and perhaps a washer for each of the front headlights?) When I attempt to spray my windscreen, one of the following will happen: i) The...
