My 2001 Outback front windsheild squirters dont work? any suggestions
The front windshield sprayers don't work on my 2001 Outback. Looking for things to check to make functional.
Do you hear the pump run when you turn it to wash? If not the most likely problem is the pump itself, if you do her it run then you need to find the blockage in either the jets or the lines.
Also make sure the rubber hose has not come off on sprayer connection.
Rear works? If so, it's not a fuse. If not, check fuse. Then ensure that BOTH plugs into the reservoir are secured, as often it's easy to forget to reconnect one after changing plugs on the driver's side. Otherwise follow the leaders above: check hoses for blockage or accidental removal. The pumps are quite good, but alas...15 years old, eh?
Ok I replaced the pump to the front windshield sprayer and still nothing. I can hear the rear pump working when I turn on the rear sprayer but nothing on the front even with the new motor?
I'd remove the lower steering column plastic shell (long phillips will do it) and check the combi switch connector plug. Then check the motor/squiter connector for 12v when activated (you may need three hands). You ARE pushing the correct button to squirt?
