Just spent a couple of hours trying to fix this.
First I jacked the car up, took the driver-side wheel off and removed the panelling around the wheel to get to the bottle, however I couldn't get to the pump or the pipes very easily still so I decided to put it all back together and try the switch/lever.
I removed the lever and, after several minutes of trying to take it apart (stabbing myself several times in the hand in the process with screwdrivers) it finally came apart, with bits falling everywhere. Not really what I wanted as I hadn't a clue how it all fitted together
Fiddled around a bit, not really doing anything in particular and put it back together. Switched on the ignition and the front washer came on - and stayed on. DOH! Turns out although it works fine by pressing the button as its supposed to now, it also squirts when I switch the rear wiper on. Not sure that's correct
At least its working though, and confirms it is the switch at fault. I'm going to leave it now as its dark, but after Christmas I might take it apart again and see what I've done wrong.
Thanks again for the advice. Have a great Christmas and New Year.
Congrats damian, glad you got it sorted out! hopefully a new stalk will make life a bit easier in the new year!
