    Unhappy Help Needed ASAP Another Screenwash Problem

    Hi,
    Last week my screenwash ran out in my 2005 astra h.
    I filled it up again with a halford own brand screenwash.

    But now it will not squirt??
    I pull the right hand stick towards me and nothing
    push it away to do theback and still nothing

    somtimes my wipers even come on but the screenwash doesnt even attempt to do a thing??

    ANY IDEAS NEEDED ASAP

    Youv not put enough screenwash concentrate in which has resulted in yur fuse blowing. Fuse box under the bonnet, fuse 7 or 8 (small 10amp fellow) change that and it will be fine. Chances are you will also be unable to open your boot.

    There are some models it wont affect the boot, but check the fuse.

    The one in the bonent has 2 clips?

    to open it just slid a screw driver down and push out for both clips and it will come of. that is how I get it of
