    the one to do the front wipers mate, just push it towards the front of the car, like your putting your lights on main beam but on the other stalk.

    understand mate?

    and to get it to squirt you need to push it lil bit further forward so that it squirts!

    Hmm okies, i would check the fuse, but i do believe that if it squirts but dont wipe it wouldnt be the fuse its probs the motor!! if you have just brought the car froma dealer/garage you should be able to go back and say to them it aint working and get them to fix it, specially if you have just brought it!

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
