Mondeo Mk3 Washer Pump
Posted 31 October 2011 - 04:30 PM
My washers don't work too well as, after the inital jet onto the screen, it just dribbles. If I press the button again, the same thing happens. It should be better than this.
My mate suggested it may be a blockage & the quickest way to sort it would be to force compressed air up the pipe from the front washers & flush the blockage backwards through the pump & into the reservoir. I tried this & succeeded in forcing off the pipe that goes into the reservoir. Therefore I need to access the pump to refit the pipe.
Do I need to remove the O/S/F wheel & wheel arch liner to access it, or is there a quicker way? I hope there's a shortcut!
Thanks very much.

you might be able to access the pipe by jacking up the front of the car,use axle stands to support the car if crawling underneath.
I've had a look underneath, but even if it were on a ramp, there's no way I could get my hands into any holes. Do I have to remove a penel somewhere to give me some room?
