Guys, having read your tips on washer problem, and hearing the pump doing its whirring thing, I may have to look forward to replacing it or the impellor. Can the impellor be replaced? Can a female accomplish this I am wondering? I had a look at where the tubes/pipes lead to the washer head (in case they might be blocked) and decided that trying to get to that connection is tricky.
Havent yet tried draining the reservoir but will try the hot water vs crud trick this weekend. Any further tips greatly appreciated. What brassed me off is that I ignored the additives in the water activity last winter when the car was housed outside in the snow. This year, I just put the additive in the screenwash, the cars under cover, theres been no snow here yet - and the damn system packs up!
