Windshield washer system without function

  • Hello everyone,

    I've just noticed that my windshield washer system is not working.

    The headlight washer system works (push the lever away from the driver), you can hear a pump whirring and the wiper water flies onto the hood.

    The windshield (pull the lever towards the driver) is silent. No wiping water, no whirring.

    What could be the cause?

    Fuse - if so, which one?

    Pump? If so, where is it?

    Lever on the steering column?

    Many thanks for your help!

  • The pump is located at the front left of the mudguard. In my case, the pump was torn

  • Follow the probability! It will be the pump, but I would check that first before ordering new parts. The pump is in the tank in the front left mudguard. Lower the wheel, remove the trim, remove the left trim in the water tank, pull out the nozzle for filling, loosen the tank fastening in the wheel arch and hope that there isn't too much wiper water in there, then the tank can be lowered and the pumps will be visible. I would check whether there is power to the pump.

    If it is the pump, you can simply pull it out and replace it with a new one.
