    Windscreen Wiper washer fuse

    Hi I have a vauxhall astra 1.4l unleaded,2002. What fuse would I need for the wiper washer.

    The water has stopped shootin out and the motor doesn't sound like its even trying.

    I am only guessing its the fuse, can i get them from halfords thank very much.

    providing u mean the Astra Mk5 being on a 2004 plate then check the fuse diagram at the top of the MK5 ELEC forum (this being posted in the Zafira Electrical)

    all details there - theres 2 different fuseboxes fitted depending on which model u have but both are 10A fuse - have a look


    id get a handful of 10a washers from a local parts shop or even tesco and asda and the likes - or ebay - better than paying the halfords prices

    all zaffy's/Astra's MK1/MK4 onwards use 10A mini blade fuse (RED) for the washer/wipers! These have been common in going due to the winter weather!!! I work @ halfords, we haven't had any instock for weeks

    alot of vx dealers have been uprating them to 15 amp fuses because 10's keep blowing but obviously the fuses are there to blow and stop fires. however vx have said its totally fine to use these. upto urself
