Tried my Mondeo washers the other day after filling up the bottle but
very little came out the jets ...I then realised it was probably same
thing as what had happened a couple of years ago so looking at the
front bumper confirmed this ...fluid spewing on to the road ...the
tubing had popped off the pump . Not a clever design point having it
placed where it is behind the bumper/headlight area .
Any Mondeo owners know ways of preventing this freezing .
I think he means make it more concentrated....
The stuff i use recommends 1:4 in winter with 1:3 in extreme conditions.....
Its a damnsite more than you might think.....
Your other option is to add some meths to it, but it has much the same
effect and meths has gone monsterously expensive reacently.
He doesn't sound as thick as you! What do you think is in screenwash?
Why do you think he was telling you to put more in the tank?
If you just use water which will freeze then I can see your problem.
My washer jets have not frozen yet and my car has been outside at -5c
and not in it's heated garage.
When you put the tube back on dry it off and superglue it, mine used to come
off every couple of months, I asked a garage what they did and superglue was
Mine hasn't come off for about 18 months.
Aah...That's a thought .I did see a suggestion to use small hose clips
rather than just leave the tubes pushed on ...iirc I think the pump
nozzles have a lip at the end ....hope they havent snapped off
