Question Washer Bottle Access

Does anyone know the best way to access the windscreen washer bottle on a 2002 Scenic II 1.9dCi, the water flow is intermittent but the pump can be heard running so I need to be able to get to the base of the washer bottle and pump to be able to check for blockages. I have already removed the pipes form the rear of the bonnet mounted jets to check to see if they were blocked but the fault still exists when the pipes are disconnected.

Hi and welcome to the forum,iam not that sure on the scenic but if its anything like my Espace you will need to gain access from under the car by removed the trim plate from under the car to gain access to screws and bolts holding it in place,i hope this helps Donald

Before you remove anything, I'd try syphoning out the screen washer bottle. Fill it up with hand hot water leave it in there 20 minutes or so, then try the pump, just hold the switch up and keep it there for a while.

If this doesn't work the first time then I'd do the same again.

BTW This worked for me
