Ford focus windscreen washer not working?

Recommended Posts

My windscreen washer is not working. I thought it may be a fuse, but the wipers are ok. I can't hear the washer motor either.

 

Any suggestions?

put water in it?

 

We would be concerned but what with economic global crisis and mayhem in Gaza we're all a bit busy.

 

It's a ford focus. Chuck it away.

Are you sure it isn't just frozen - they can take a while to thaw out.

Yes, it could very well be frozen.

It's a lever on a Focus, although it is on the right.

if there is water in the tank and it's not frozen, take off each of the small hoses that run from the tank up to the wee squirters, blow throw them and make sure they are clear, also clean out the small plastic bits the hoses attach onto with a small pin as these can get blocked with bits of dirt.

My Corsa's froze, took me an hour before it defrost, so may well be that.

Did you sort it ?

You need more screenwash than water when the mercury drops below 0.

HTH.

Mine is on the wiper lever and I push a button in and wipers work a couple of times.
