Windscreen washers, long delay before water...*Fixed*
I noticed that when I operate the windscreen washers that it takes a long time before the water starts coming out of the jets.
I have traced this to a faulty Non Return Valve (NRV), as after I have used the washers I can see the water running back to the washer bottle through the clear pipe.
I believe the original NRV is situated in the pipe just after the pump.
I have searched the Internet trying to find a NRV to put in it line to stop the water running back but can't seem to find any.
I suppose I could contact the dealer but they would probably want a small fortune for on if they did sell it on it's own.
Anyone had this problem & found anywhere that sells an aftermarket NRV that would do the job.
