Re: Broken washer motor

Have you checked the fuse. Or the connection to the bottle.

Re: Broken washer motor

Hi
could it be frozen?
Mine has been frozen for most of the week!
Same symptons despite a high concentration of additive.
It's the little plastic pipes that freeze so easily but take hours to defrost!
Everythings Ok when the temp rises

And the fuse may need replacing, if you've persisted in trying to use it when it's frozen.

Re: Broken washer motor

Pour some warm water over the jets, even though you put neat or low temp washer fluid in the bottle, the tiny jets don't have a large volume in, so it'll freeze solid quicker and as you're driving are getting wind chilled as well.

Half an hour at 50 mpg on a cold morning like today will freeze even the best screen wash in the jets, the Russians use neat vodka to stop this!
