About Screen Washer Motor

The screenwasher motor is an electrical mechanism that activates a pump which will cause screenwash to be fed to the screenwash jets situated just below the windscreen. In most cases the screenwash motor and pump are enclosed in one unit that is situated with the screenwash reservoir in the engine compartment. Occasionally the motor and pump are two separate units. The screenwash motor is activated by a stick-lever usually found on the steering column.

 

If the motor fails to operate this could be due to a blown fuse, a poor earth return or corrosion to the terminals, or the motor itself is faulty. If the motor needs replacing it is advisable to also fit a new non-return valve and filter in the reservoir. If the motor is operating properly but no screenwash appears from the screenwash jets it’s possible that there is a blockage or debris in the filter of the pump or in the jet nozzles. To check whether the pump is operating it’s normal to hear a whirring noise from the reservoir area when the stick-lever is pushed. This should mean both motor and pump are working correctly.

 

If replacing a broken motor with one that is not an exact replica it may be possible to bypass the old motor and fit the replacement with a new mounting.

Smart trivia

  • One of the first adverts showcasing the safety of Smart cars was criticized for suspected fakery because consumers didn't believe any of the claims made in the ads. However, Smart released a behind the scenes video on YouTube that showed how the advert was made and revealed that Smart cars are a lot sturdier than you might think.
  • Smart doesn’t offer a huge range of vehicles. The most popular is the Smart ForTwo, but the ForFour is growing in popularity. You might also have seen the Smart Brabus, which is larger but still considered a microcar.
  • They’re small cars with small engines, but the Smart ForTwo is incredibly efficient. It’s only eight gallons, but those eight gallons will get you around 350 miles of driving (that means a very impressive 40-miles per gallon).
  • Designed for urban driving, Smart cars are being sold at an incredible rate. In 2015, sales of Smart cars rose by 95%, and in 2016 they rose again by 42%.
  • The very first Smart brand microcar made it to production in 1994, but it didn't make it to the world stage until a lot later. You couldn’t buy a Smart car in the US until 2008 (but it did sell 25,000 units when it did go on sale).
