As Nick says...have you checked that it's not empty ? Whilst we are on this gripping subject..a small question. Tried Prestone screenwash last month..absolute ****e ! Resulted in plenty of foam, smeary windscreen and blocked jets. So did the "right" thing and got 4 x 250ml bottles of Tutela SC35....only problem is for the life of me can't see the instruction for dilution rates anywhere. Currently using 50% which probably is high for summer ? Anyway excellent clear screen with alcohol smell as a bonus :biglaugh:Hey guys, recently my washers stopped working on the front and back of my car, the fuse isn't blown, and the stalk still triggers the wipers, any ideas?
No, not a mention ...just "concentrated windscreen wash" in Italian, English, French and German. Followed by whole string of stuff..even including "dalla portata dei bambini" everything in fact that's not helpful :biglaugh: Must have been away with the fairies when I said 50% mix, in fact I put in approx 200ml into empty tank then filled with water, seems to be about the right mix.doesn't it say "ready for use" on the bottles? no dilution required.
Thanks for the sympathy guys, wifes very upset regarding the sentimental value more than anything. it's only money as they say and I fully appreciate some of us have serious health issues which are far more worrying. Anyway, phoned the police at 8.30pm..they arrived at 11.30pm...and with the usual "of course we won't catch them and it's your fault as you haven't turned your house into Fort Knox" attitude. Now the haggling with the insurance company.sorry to hear that. Nobody is waiting for such a thing...
Good to see twinterx back on the scene after all the distraction :biglaugh:The motor sits on the side of the tank, check by the headlight... I haven't looked for it yet, but I'd first test with a testlight if power is getting to the washer. you could try with a multimeter aswell.
I don't think its just an Alfa thing.. There is a crash repairer near my work, and they are almost always tucked somewhere around the wheel wheel in one of the dead spaces for packaging reasons, kind of hard to find a 10-20l volume in a modern car...Something just tells me that being an Alfa the washer motor just has to be buried in the bowels of it somewhere.
