Washer Pump on A3 Sport (07 Plate)
The car has been stood since Weds of last week.
The Mrs is a numbskull and told me that she struggled to start it. When I asked her if she had let the glow plug light go out, before she cranked it, show just looked at me stupidly !
Anyway, she goes to work and comes home to tell me that her washer for the windscreen doesnt work and that she had been trying it most of the morning on the motorway.
I thought that it was strange as I topped up the washer fluid with neat washer fluid as it would have less chance to freeze. Popped the bonnet to see it hadnt frozen and was quite warm due to the heat from the engine. Tried to wash the screen and got nothing out of it. Not even the noise from the pump to say "I am trying but the pipes are blocked"
1 - Has she buggered the pump up by keep trying it ?
2 - Would it be just a fuse ?
3 - If it is the pump, are they difficult to fix, bearing in mind I will be doing it outside and its currently -7 where I live.
any replies or advice appreciated.
