    Hi guys, can anyone help, bought my car on new years eve, its a 1996 E36 3 series. The problem is my washer jets aren't working, they haven't since i got the car so not sure how long its been like that. Basically i want to know if theres any common problems with the washer jets that i should know about to make them fail, theres no noise coming from the motor, whae i pull the stork theres nothing, the fuse is fine and all the wiring that i can see without taking the thing to bits is intact, anyone shine some light on this for me????


    Many thanks, Gary.

    Sounds like your motor is 'buggered' (technical term ;-) ), they are fairly cheap to buy from places like GSF or Euro car parts etc.

    I would suggest you check for voltage at the pump motor before purchasing a new one. It's located on the washer reservoir tank.
