Can anyone please advise the best way to clear a blockage in the washer bottle? I have taken the washer hoses apart under the bonnet where they join to the front and rear jets. The pump works, but no water comes out. The bottle seems to be very securely fitted, and not easy to remove. Any ideas would be most welcome.

Thanks for this. Is it likely to be inside the bottle, or fitted outside? I can probably get to the underside of the bottle o.k. Is it likely to be blocked by debris inside as well.



It sounds like the impeller has broken away from motor if you can hear the motor running and no water coming out.

No idea how accessible the pump is on the fusion without removing the wheel arch liner etc, but if you can get to it it just pulls off the bottle.

Hope this helps and good luck.

Thanks for info. Should be able to do this in driveway - if it stops raining! Thanks again.



Its on the outside of the bottle.
My "guess" would be that the washer fluid had frozen and activating the pump may have caused the the impeller to detach from the motor, not sure about the debris theory but its possible.
Pulling the pump off will drain the bottle so you can give it a good flush jic.

Just another point. Do you think that this can be worked on from the outside of the bottle alone, or will the inside of the bottle have to be accessed? i.e. should the pump etc, just twist off from the outside?

Check out these videos



Thanks for video. Located pump at bottom of bottle, but couldn`t open it. Local Arnold Clark cleared it for me, and didn`t charge, so all sorted now. Thanks for all help with this.
