Just about to board channel tunnel and have noticed both aren't working, no pump noise being heard. Yes there is plenty of liquid. Any tips? Do they share a relay/ fuse?
Cheers
Jon

Don't the headlights have to be on?

So headlight washers do work, but screen washers don't.
Could it be a relay?

Pop the nearside headlamp out and get tap the pump while somebody operates the washer jets see if it fires into life. Mine packed in and I did this and it started working but has since stopped working again so just about to order a new one!

Ah will give it a go, I had the lights out to flatten the beams for Europe, maybe that upset something.

You are a star! Worked a treat. I guess this may mean my pump is on the way out.
Cheers again!

Hi all,

Worth checking with OPC as I recently got a replacement pump with plug (You may have to change the plug on the loom as the new pumps (996 pumps I believe) have different plug connections)) for about £40.

Cheers,
Lig.
