Re: Windscreen washers?

It would be worthwhile trying the hot water trick, it does work (Sometimes)

Siphon the current contents of the washer bottle out, half fill the empty washer bottle with hand hot water. Let it stand for a minute or two and then in 10 to 15 second bursts let the washer rip

This could be important because of the cold weather Id shied the hot water from hitting the screen glass which might crack because of localised expansion from the hotspots of water
