Managed to bodge it on with cable ties and a jubilee clip,just enough to be able to select 2nd gear and a short scream up to my local garage.

Re: Glopsy

Glopsy's windscreen washers have decided to stop working today. The headlight washers operate ok,so I'm assuming the stalk/ relay is fine which points to the pump being the issue. Is the screen pump on a different fuse to the headlight one?

New pump arrived today from All Car Parts in Kent. Hopefully get it fitted on Friday afternoon and then we'll see if that was the issue.

Went to fit the new pump today,which was a partial success. Partial in that the pump now works in both directions but whilst fitting it into the bottle I somehow managed to push the grommet into it.
This leaves me with a working pump but a bottle that doesn't hold water! To make matters worse, that's the second grommet I've lost in there!!

My grommets arrived today,and I ordered a spare just in case!
Made sure I was a bit more gentle easing the pump nozzle through the grommet and into the bottle this time,which has resulted in working washers again.
I'm still however not getting anything through to the back screen,even though you can hear the pump working. Any common places the back one gets blocked or the pipe coming unattached? My first thought was to fire up my compressor and blow the line through from the pump end?

Re: Glopsy

Managed to pick up yet another puncture today, just what I need on the run up to Christmas and during a lockdown.
I've bought another pair of Hankooks,to match the fronts as I've been quite impressed with them after years of always using Goodyear efficient grips,and have booked a fitting time slot for Thursday.

Re: Glopsy

All fixed and I had the tracking done whilst I was there. Probably doubled the cars value!

Popped into Mr Clutch earlier as they were replacing the clutch on my wifes car and this is their quote for Glopsy's,including the dmf. The chap I spoke with reckoned that there was a good chance that the dmf would be fine and then the job would be 418.
Definitely food for thought and at this rate I can see a full on resto happening!
