Re: Grand Scenic Wiper Blades & Windscreen Washers

If the pressure and delivery is good once the water appears-
Take a look at the washer pipe leading from bonnet to body and see if there is a thin connector tube in the pipe.
It may be a 1 way valve.
If that is faulty it allows the water to drain back to the bottle giving the delay next press.

The wiper blades might be a different type on the later model. Possibly a thin strip blade on later and conventional framed blades on earlier.
Framed blades might be more expensive.
Not sure if they are interchangeable.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
