106 rear washer not working

    Hi all

    The rear washer on my 1999 106 Zest 3 is the "click switch once to start the
    wiper, click and hold another notch to activate pump" type.

    Driving home tonight I tried to wash the rear window, but when I pressed the
    switch to the 2nd position to activate the pump, the relay used to activate
    the front wipers clicked in as though I'd washed the front window. The pump
    for either the rear or front screens did not activate. The front
    washers/wipers work fine, as does the rear wiper.

    I tried it a few times during the journey with the same result.

    Any ideas?

    Dead Pump? My 405 estate suffered this last year. Replacement from Neat
    (http://www.parts4peugeot.com/)was quite cheap and came quickly. 5
    minute job to change.

    Could that explain why the front wipers start when I activate the rear pump

    Will check the pump anyway.

    Oops! Sorry Matt, I did not read your post properly.
    Does your 106 have separate pumps for front and rear? My Fiesta uses a
    common pump which is reverible to wash front or rear. This uses complex
    switching at the stalk - maybe yours has a problem with this switching?

    I'd check the stalk switching anyway and look in detail at the circuit
    diagram (haynes?) to see what might explain the behaviour. Suspect Earth
    connections or perhaps a starage effect when multiple fuses protect
    common circuits.

    Thanks for the reply Bob.

    To be honest I don't know whether it's got separate pumps for front and

    I'll check it out and if I have no luck I have a relative who was once a car
    mechanic ;)
