Headlight washers?

To answer the question, on a UK spec car, there is indeed a separate button for the headlamp washers - on the headlamp switch itself as posted in the pics above.....


.....And it only works when your headlamps are switched on!! So to test, with the headlamps (AND ignition) on, press the button; you should hear a "click" from the relay behind the OSF wing and the wipers should also perform 2 or 3 wipes. If none of that happens, then your (brown) relay is dead and needs replacing - as said, it is just inside the wheel arch of the right hand front wing to the rear of the wheel (near the side indicator repeater)..... Replace it!!


Once you have done that (as I did today) try again (with headlamps and ignition on) - if the relay clicks and the wipers sweep; that's half the issue solved. If the headlamp washers still do not spray, listen for the motor engaging - if it does, then your jets are most likely blocked.... If it does not engage, then the motor is most likely dead (like I found mine is today). If the latter, you need to replace the motor - I believe it is just behind the front bumper under the OSF wing, attached to the washer fluid reservoir...



I have something to say............ It's better to burn out than to fade away..... :tt2:
