In Reply to: Windshield washer motor not working posted by J Green on August 27, 2001 at 19:41:15:

Put 12 volts on the washer motor. If it runs it could be your switch. If it runs and you get no fluid from the jets, then they have clogged. The heated jets are infamous for this. Clearing them out is tough. You may have to replace them. Be careful not to dent the hood. Look closely at how they attach for an idea on how to remove.


My washer motor just stopped working. My thought is that it's the switch in the steering column. Before I go that route, I'd like to hear any suggestions. The car is a 1989 525I. Thanks John
