Unhappy blocked screenwash

My screen wash appears to be blocked - any advice on how I can unblock it?
I have a punto

Re: blocked screenwash

Try poking the nozzles with a pin to unblock them. If that doesn't sort it, check if the washer motor works - it should make a buzzing noise when you operate the washers.

Re: blocked screenwash

I always takeout the nozzles and place them in a container with soapy hot water and leave them for a bit, once cleaned you can blow through them to make sure they are working.

Re: blocked screenwash

OK

So how do i remove the nozzles?

The nozzles are definitely blocked as the motor works and i have screenwash in the reservoir.

Re: blocked screenwash

If the motor is working but cleaning fails and it seems there is a blockage in the pipe, vinigar is the water will work a treat.

Re: blocked screenwash

The nozzles should pop out with a forceful push from underneath the bonnet.

Re: blocked screenwash

If you live in a hard water area you may find the blockage is due to limescale build up, so remove them as suggested but stick them in the kettle when you are descaling it and it will do the same to your jets.

Re: blocked screenwash

There are also one-way valves in the water lines.
Both of mine blocked up.

Cheep replacement ones from Halfords fixed the problem.

Re: blocked screenwash

fuse wire is good for un blocking, and a table spoon of vinagar in the washer bottle every time you fill up keeps them clear

I'm a cheapskate, I took mine to bits, cleaned it and it works fine now
