Default Do I have to take the wheel off to access washer pump?

My 2001 1.9D 206 has a problem with the screen washers. The fuse is ok so itís likely to be the pump I spose.

Do I have to take the front wheel off to get to it and test it with a volt meter or can I wriggle around and reach it? Iím beyond skint so canít afford a garage and I also donít have amazing mobility or strength so Iíd rather avoid taking the wheel off at this stage if possible.

You need to get to the pump from the wheel arch liner. It is probably easier to remove the wheel than work round it.

To be honest its not a bad thing. At the same time you can replace the old mounting clips with better ones:



As well as clean the connections to the power steering pump, which will improve operation no end.

And you'd be amazed at how much mud gets behind the liners.

Well, I got the wheel off and changed the pump. Still doesnít work.

I guess the problem is in the stalk then. Thereís no resistance when I pull the stalk forward.

Have you checked for current to the pump and a good earth?.

You will need an assistant.
With the meter set to >20v range put the + probe to the plug that goes to the pump, the - probe to a good earth. you should have battery voltage. try both terminals.
With the meter set to ohms put one probe to a good earth, the other to the terminals, you should get a very close to zero resistance.
You have checked for a blown fuse?.

Hiya - yeah, I checked the fuse. It's fine but also the back washers work now so if it was the fuse that wouldn't happen would it?

When you say the plug that goes into the pump do you mean the bit that you clip on to the pump with the wires coming out of it?

You could just swap the tubes around for the MOT so that the front one works, I don't think the rear washer is a test item.
