    Washers

    Hi, since the freeze last week my front and rear washers don't work. Can't really hear a motor going. But if lights are on the headlamp washers work fine. Do they have a separate motor. Could the freeze have damaged something. Car is a December 2004 2 litre Turbo.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, just put my brain in gear, checked the book, it does show separate fuses for windscreen wash system and headlight wash system, so will check the fuse, when things quiten down, and maybe it gets a bit warmer......

    OK so I replaced the blown fuse, motor now runs, water squirts on the front windscreen, but not the rear window. Could there be an air lock?? Have left the rear screen switch on for 30 seconds or more, but nothing comes out. Suggestions please......

    Maybe the hole in the washer jet is blocked by the salts of water. With a small needle unblock it.
