The jet washers on the front of my sei have lost all the pressure so the water is just dribbling out, any idea of the cause of this, I haven't checked it jet to look for any problems, but I will do and post back my results.

Any ideas in the mean time are appreciated:D:D:D

Thanx

You might find it's a gummed up non-return valve in the pipework.

A Tipo we had a few years ago used to suffer from this a lot.

If you can find the valve and take the feed pipe off: you'll soon know if it's the problem, when you try the washer... but don't look down the pipe B)

Cheap screenwash seemed to be the cause of the problem.

The cure was new valves - Halfords used to do them for 1 UKP, or thereabouts. I expect they're double that now ;)

Check for split hoses too, they regularly perish near the water bottle.

Wahay, found out what was causing this problem, the pipework was trapeed in the bonnet hinges, so released it and now its working fine.

Thanks for your help and will remember for future use
