    our 2001 kontiki ,on a ducato chassis, is due it's MOT.

    while checking everything i found the washers didnt work(they did last time out)

    i pulled off the pump from the bottom of the tank and found the filter was coated with a blue snot like substance.:Eeek:

    cleaned it off under a fast tap and refitted, works fine:thumb:

    smear a little vasaline on the grommet, it fits back in much easier:thumb:

    i have a feeling its caused by cheap screenwash.:Doh:

    Screan wash

    Hi John.
    If it stops working again , might have sucked up some blue snot into the plumbing. We hope the MOT go's without complication John. :thumb:
