Re: Wiper washer not working

Might I take the opportunity to suggest ONLY put a proprietary ready-mix screenwash in, or SOFT water only with concentrate screenwash, or possibly meths; DO NOT use hard water or any kind of soap or detergent etc. I'm in such a hard water area that I make a mix with distilled water if I can't get ready-mix. And ALWAYS use screen-wash, even in Summer, it's not just for Winter time.

Re: Wiper washer not working

Often what causes trouble, is the mistaken idea that Fairy (or similar liquid) is a good idea for greasy windows. In truth, it coagulates when mixed with screenwash.

Re: Wiper washer not working

I cured the same problem by syphoning the contents of the washer bottle dry, fill it up again with hand hot water.

Leave it in there 5 minutes or so but while still hot hit the washer switch in 15-20 second bursts.
