Headlamp washer

Post by Z3andZ4 »

Just got my car back from having the bumper off and re sprayed. Now the headlamp washers don’t appear to be working.

Am I correct the headlights have to be on for the headlamp washers to work?

Does it work every time you use it, or every 4th time?

Is there a separate reservoir for the headlamp washers? I presume it also has its own pump.

Any assistance hugely welcomed please and tia.

Headlights must be on.
It only sprays every 4th or 5th time you use the washers, but should work the first time with the headlamps on.
There is just one reservoir.
That's how it is on my 3.0i Z3.
Hope this helps.

Many Thanks Mark, just about to go out and get the bonnet up and have a looksie.

That reduces my searching no end.

Just need to find the pump for the jet washers now 😉

The pump is actually on the side of the reservoir.
