Hey everyone,

I have a 2009 Rio Hatch and just the other day i tried to wash the front windscreen and no water came out. The pump still made a noise but nothing else.

Then yesterday morning i went to try again and now there is no water and no noise!!! :(

The wipers still work through all stages but i have no idea what's happened?

Any advice would be a great help

Cheers

Miss Bee

Well, I hate to be a smarta$$, but is there any washer fluid in the reservoir? If you can still here the pump running, that rules out the electrical, although it could still be a bad pump. Either there is a restriction at the pump or the hoses, or a break in the feed hose before the split for the individual nozzles.

The only thing I can think of is there any water in the pump? And try to fill it all the way up to the top. There might be a leak in the hose and you think there is water in there. Thats why I would advised to fill it up all the way and see if it starts to drain.

Miss Bee hasn't been here since the day she left that post. I would hope, however, that in the 3 1/2 years that have passed the she has had some resolution to this issue.......
