Just got into work without any screen washers on my 01 Sportwagon - front and rear are not working. Headlamp ones are though so thats a releif:lol:
I've checked the fuse and its OK and I filled the bottle before going into work anyway so its not a lack of water. Any ideas from the team? Does the same motor do front and rear washers? Is it just another bit of Alfa Electrical character or is there something actually wrong :)
Cheers
Matt

Does the washer pump make a noise when activated? Have you tried removing the nozzles to see if water comes out of the pipe?

No noise from under the bonnet when trying the front or rear washers, so I suspect its motor or electrics to the motor(s)

Many Thanks - problem fixed!

Thanks for the input folk. I've just removed the header tank and cleaned up the connectors to both motors and squirted WD40 on them and the washers have come back to life :)

I'll add some ACF50 later at the weekend to stop them misbehaving again:tut:
