  1. ive had a non working windscreen wash system for 2 years (yes ive been really lazy) never felt i could tackle the issue myself and didnt want to pay £70 to have a mechanic deal with it over the last week ive read up on a thread here where someone had same issue they changed the pump and cleaned the filter ive never worked on any car but after watching youtube videos i felt i could try this so this morning with a few tools i removed the drivers side wheel removed the inner lining removed the washer bottle took the bung/filter off which was gunked up cleaned that and washed bottle out took a chance and put bottle together again filled up with water and tested which to my delight worked a treat so rather than buying a new pump i just put all back in place fitted liner and wheel back filled bottle up with autoglym screen wash this took me an hr and 1/2 got filthy wet but feel good with myself having taken on this task and saving £70 with help and advice from this forum anyone can take most car issues on so id like to say a BIG THANKYOU to everyone who helps and advises on threads where people need help especially when photos or videos get added which helps tremendously

  8. id picked up 2 bulbs after ordering online just got round to fitting today and 1 fitted the other didnt i checked the boxes and the guy had given me differnt code numbers the one that fitted was LLB383 which is priced around £14 the 1 that dont fit is LLB380R priced £2.80 i only paid £5ish for both bulbs but cant understand why the bulb recommended dont fit the bulbs look the same but 1 of the nipples is 1mm out from sloting down the channel of the bulb holder looks like im paying full price for the 2nd bulb i think £14 for a brake light bulb is taking the *****
