Here's hoping someone can help with this. My washers have stopped working, wipers still work fine but no washers, any ideas [/i]

No fluid?

Blocked jets?

Broken pipe?

Electrical problem - pump or fuse?

Full of fluid, no sign of any leaks. Suspect electrical fault

All the fuses seem ok, I think it's the same fuse as the wipers

Can you hear the pump when you pull the stalk forward?

No, would the pump be fed directly from the stalk, or is it controlled by a body control module? Thanks Richard

Sorry, can't help with that.  I'm old school I'm afraid.

If you can't hear the pump, I would look to try a direct feed to it, to see if it is working.

My only suggestion if it is BCM controlled, is to try disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes, then re-connect.

A while back mine didnt squirt properly, i'd pull on the stalk, pump would be working, but no water then it would arrive after a while. Turns out it was a faulty stalk and two hundred and something quid for a new one.

Ouch! I hope it's not that. Booked into Renault Cardiff on Wednesday, hoping it will be covered under warranty

The stalks are universal? So you could pick one up with the correct connections for around £20 from a breaker

Not sure on them being universal, and even Twingo ones would probably have an extra function for rear windows, so may not be interchangeable.

Good. Doesn't sound too expensive.
