Faulty Windshield washer pump

For the technical things.

Faulty Windshield washer pump

Postby 164super » Wed Feb 08, 2017 7:36 am

Guys need some help here. My 164 12v year 91; the windshield washer pump is not working. The wiper works .
Any wiring or fuse I need to inspect for fault?
And if yes, where are they located?
Tried looking at the guide book but can't find the location of the fuse for windshield washer pump.
Many thanks

Where are you located? There could be regional differences for placement of fuses etc.

The pump is on the reservoir in front of the right front wheel. Could be that the plugs are corroded.

Hi Alfan..
I'm from Malaysia.
Any pictures of the exact location would help.
Thanks

So RHD model. I have no clue on the location of the fuse, but mine didn't work once and that was caused by the column stalk-control. After cleaning it worked again.

If you look underneath your car in front of the right side front wheel, you should see the reservoir, also on your RHD version.

To get to the pump, you probably need to remove the inner wheel fender. Of course, it could also be the fuse, but I do not know which one that is. I suggest you look at all the fuses in the main fusebox, to see if any of them are broken (my guess is that it is one of them).

Yes its RHD. I have checked the fuses thoroughly they seem OK...
Probably will probe the pump itself to look for damage.

I had to take the wheel liner off yesterday, as one of the pulleys for the belt had fallen off...

So here is a photo of the reservoir and pumps (both for windshield and head lights.

Many thanks Alfan. The pump is removed and upon testing not functional.
Getting a used replacement pump.
