Re: windscreen washers, won't work, on my Clio

I removed the bottle which was a tedious task and cleaned it out thoroughly. Both pumps work as I can swap them over and get the front washers working with either pump. Its helpful to read that there is a valve inside the pump that could be blocked and I will take a look at this.

Barrymain, if you can hear the pumps working then you could remove the outlet hose and try the pump on its own. The hoses were tight on mine but I did manage to pull them off. If its not blocked then you'll get a jet of water spraying. Make sure nothing can get damaged by getting wet. It would prove the pump wasn't choked.
Currently in o4abiggerhammer's garage:
no clio :-(
