    Hi,
    My windscreen washers are blocked with dust/sand and I have tried to clear them with a needle but without success.
    Does anybody know for certain how to free then, I am unable to get access from underneath and I suspect they may prise off from the above but not sure.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you can get a can of compressed air and take of the pipe feeding the jets and blow in normal direction as sometimes using needle forces sand and dirt into tube. Even a normal air compressor might work. You may find there is also crap in the bottle so washing that out will stop the stuff traveling back up the tube and reblocking it.

    Unable to get at the pipe feeding the washers as it's behind the scuttle.

    Check the water bottle first, there is often a filter in the bottom. Then use an air line all the way from the bottle, not to much pressure though.

    Problem resolved, thanks to one and all. traced tube from bottle and found union joint and managed to blow through clearing both washers.
