Unhappy Front & Rear Washer Jets not working.

Hey everyone,

Just a quick one, my Seicento Washer Jets for both the front and rear are not working.

I've checked the fuse which operates the wipers as well and this is fine, but for both the washer jets to suddenly stop at the same time is a bit strange.

Any common faults for both not to be working?


Thanks all,

I'm sure the Sei uses the same pump for front & rear, running in one direction for the front and the opposite direction for the rear.

Cinq have separate pumps for front & rear.

Believe you are right, so being a Sei, I'd guess at corroded wiring at the pump connector, or a failed/blocked pump.

Thumbs up Re: Front & Rear Washer Jets not working.

Thanks for the replies all,

Wipers are fine, just washer jets.

For some reason I'm sure I read the Sei had separate pumps but if that's not the case then I'll look at the pump and wires first.

Thanks again all.

Thanks for all the help,

It was indeed the connection, in fact the terminals looked fairly ok, it was actually the wires inside the insulation had broke.

So, I now have washers again!!! Yay!!!
