Rear Washer Jet Working But Fronts Not

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I've got a bit of a problem I can't solve. Our Mk1.5 2003 Focus has developed a fault with the front washer jets. The front jets no longer seem to be working, however when you press the button on the end of the stalk the rear jet is squirting instead. The front wipers are still wiping when I try to use washers. When I pull the stalk towards me the rear wiper works on its own as normal.

I've tried washing the system through with some screen cleaner and its not made any difference, and I've had the pipe off the front jets to check to see if theyre blocked and no water is coming through.

Any ideas whats wrong here!?

I think if the rear washer still works it wont be the crap at the bottom of the tank try using a needle pr pin and scrape the washer jets carefully coukd just be a load of crap in the actual jet part

Remove the pipes from the front nozzles and see if water runs through the pipes.

Can you actually hear the pump running when you press wash?

If not I'd suspect pump or fuse.
