Default Windscreen Washer

I don't know if anyone else has had this problem, but I am experiencing very poor strength from the water jets to clean front and rear windows. Nothing at all coming out of rear one. I can hear the motor running but not much water comes out.

Any help/advice appreciated.

Many Thanks

More than likely they just may be blocked from sediment/calcium if you put in water. I'd remove the plastic tube leading to the jet under the hood and then try and see if it flows. If it does, the sprayer itself is probably blocked up. I would think you could remove then and clear them with something like CLR or Limeaway.

Nope, the back doesn't have a seperate reservoir. But, check your levels. You may also have a broken sprayer. they tend to break right at the 90 where the hose hooks up. I've gone through more than I can keep count. The constant heat/cool cycle makes the plastic brittle..... I have a fix in mind, but, as I haven't tried it yet, I won't offer it....

I had already checked the water level, the resevoir is full.

I have unattached at the T-piece and tried the wipers, very little coming out.

My gut feeling is it is blocked somewhere between the resevoir and the T-piece.

What's the best way to unblock?

I can hear the pump running, does that mean it is necessarily working?
