Filled up the washer bottle today after running out completly.Washers worked for the first couple of times then packed in altogether,only a small dribble coming out now!

Cleaned out the nozzles with a pin thinking they may be full of muck but still no joy.The pump can still be heard working but no water to show for it! :confused:

Any ideas anyone?

Is there a pool of water under the car? No, I'm not taking the p*ss, same happened on my twinspark, turns out the non-return valve had literally burst itself, found the pieces under the plastic grill beneath where the windscreen wipers attach.

Got a new one from Halfords for a couple of quid.

You could also check under there for a trapped tube.

Each washer jet is about £1,20 from the dealers and the non return valve is about £1 too!!

I was told by the dealer they couldnt get hold of the non-return valves, hence the trip to Halfords.

Is the non-return valve a universal fit or is it a part thats specific to the 155?

Hello to all as I am new to the forum!

I have removed the NRV from my car altogether with no problems and my 75 was the same. The NRV appears to choke quite easily also there is a filter on the pump inlet which may have choked. you can access it by pulling the small pump out (the large one is the headlamp washer) it is just a push fit. If the filter does not come out with the pump you can pull it out also. it looks like a locating grommet when it is still in position. Good Luck!

Colin. :)
