washer jets

the washer jets on my doblo are very weak and just about got enough pressure to get the water to hit the windscreen

is this just a simple fix by cleaning the jets out or changing the pump or is this a known problem with the pump not having enough pressure ?

any help would be great thanks

Re: washer jets

Its possibly a blocked pump or none return valve. My money is on the valve from experience

Re: washer jets

The washer jets themselves probably want a careful clean out with a pin whilst someone presses the washer control in the car. They get gunged up with algae sometimes. It is worth noting that they adjust up and down on a swivel if you look carefully..........You will know when they are clear when your elbows get soaked instead of your fingers !!

Re: washer jets

They are useless, I brought 2 new ones 20 and it was better for a few weeks then same again. Will be on lookout for a decent (cheaper) aftermarket set from fleabay in near future.

Re: washer jets

I always use Halfords (it's handy) screenwash and I use the washers every day for one reason or another, all night long sometimes. I have never had a problem. Perhaps people don't use their washers regularly and they clog up: just a thought.

PS. I did mix my own screenwash years ago, and sometimes the jets clogged; a pin sorted that. I have been lucky with the pump though, but since I am having electronic gremlins with the glowplugs (which are new and fine)??? and their control unit (which is new and fine), or is it the thermostat????, I am getting fed up again. Old cars wear out, sadly.

Re: washer jets

Tends to be more a problem of people using cheap nasty screen wash, or none at all and it gungeing up.

Re: washer jets

On our 07 cargo they come out of the housing like a bullet with a blast of air, the 3 jets on one parallel tube with a screwdriver slot in end to adjust.
Have a good look first before blowing it took me an hour to find the little plastic jet tube thingy Do not use washing up liquid this is death to screen washers
The washers all 6 jets, 3 in each assembly work great when clean
