Re: Seicento rear wiper... Is this thing fused!?!

Just wondering about this, My rear window wash thing has stopped working. My wiper still works and I can hear the motor when I press the stick back to release water it sounds like the water has run out but i've topped up the wash resevoir, the front ones works fine. Anyone had this happen to them or know whats going on?

check that here is voltage/current getting to the motor with a multimeter.. if there is then ur new motor is probably broken too.. if not then the problerm is elseware.

This one is usually a non return valve in the supply pipe to the rear washer that has failed and won't let water through. Remove the pipe at the inlet side of the valve and try the washer motor, if water comes out of the pipe the motor is working fine, so remove the valve and blow through it. If you can't, then get a new one.

Cheers

Yea!!! it worked, well at least I know whats wrong I should say. Found the one way valve to the rear wash pulled it out, pushed the stick back and out came water.

So looks like I need a new one way valve thingy, will order from Fiat because I went down to Halfords and theres was pretty big compared to fiats nice and small round one so i'll wait till after christmas cant be more than £2. I wonder why these things fail, it not like they are put under any kind of stress.

I had a lot of problems with this. Try to pull the rubber hose on the top of the bonnet, and check if the end is stucked. Most of the times thee problem is in the hose which is in the bonnet door.

The axle of the rear wiper very often is stucked due to rust and dirt. Take the wiper motor out , and try to grease the axle. Lithium grease is the best for this matter.
And swich the rear wiper at least once a week, and it will not get stucked again.
Another thing. The wiper motor is the same as puntos. If you try to buy a new one.
