What do Wiper Jets do?

windscreen wipersBetween cleans, your car’s windscreen will become dirty. The wiper jets (or windscreen washers) allow for you to clean your windscreen while driving, improving visibility and safety. Sometimes, the wiper jets can become blocked or damaged, resulting in reduced effectiveness. Below are some causes of a malfunctioning wiper jet.


Common Reasons for Wiper Jet Failure

Blockage or clogging in the nozzle:

Sometimes objects such as dirt or stones may become stuck in the nozzle, reducing or completely blocking off the flow of water. The object(s) will need to be removed before the wiper jets can function correctly again.

Damaged washer pump

There is a small pump which pressurises the water so that it can spray onto your windscreen. Sometimes, this pump can become damaged due to faulty electrical connections or extended use.

Blown fuse:

A blown fuse can stop the pump motor from functioning. This means that no water will spray onto your windscreen. If you can’t hear that sound of the pump when trying to use the wiper jets, check your fuse box.
