Re: Laguna ii winscreen washer problems

The washer pump can work in either direction. The stalk switch selects which way the motor can turn by changing polarity. When it rotates one direction the front washers are supplied and vice versa. The pump has two outlets.
To ensure that both can't be supllied at the same time there are one-way valves built into the pump. It may be the valves are jammed with gunge in your case.
