My 2007 Magentis LS CRDI has a weird screen wash problem: the pump is running (sounds normal), some water squirts out of all the jets, but barely reaches the screen, then slows to a dribble. Each time I operate the stalk, I get a brief squirt, then the dribble. Where should I start - it looks difficult to get at the pump?

Acording to the Kia Global Imformation system it says to change the washer motor, Unless there is a screen on the suction side of pump that is plugged and you could get at it and clean it. Looks like alot of work to get at it, site says to 1. Disconnect the negative (-) battery terminal.
2. Remove the wire harness on the front washer reservoir.


3. Remove the tires.
4. Remove the wheel guide.
5. Remove the washer hose and the washer motor connector.
6. Remove the washer reservoir (A) after removing 3 bolts.


7. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Thanks Rob. I started the job, took off the wheel guard, but decided there were too many other bits to take off, so will pass the job on to someone with more skills than me.
