WASHER Fluid Pump?

Today I went to squirt the wiper fluid for all the salt build up on the windows.............NOTHING.

I have had the nozzles frozen shut before - but when that happened in the past I could always hear the motor trying to squirt the fluid (and once I thawed the nozzles it worked fine). But today it was complete silence.

So I have not had time to look into this yet. But...........

1) Does this wiper fluid motor work off a separate fuse I should check?

2) Am I going to be looking at replacing a motor / pump?

I guess for now I will be squirting water out of a bottle that I hold out the window when I want to get salt off the window - not the biggest inconvenience when you are talking about a D90

Thanks,

Flaggg

I don't know about the fuse. I usually throw 12v at things and work backwards. That will tell you real quick if it is bad or not. I'll check my book in the morning.

Swap the front and rear pump wiring and see if you get a new result.

I am so clueless about engines. This Defender is causing me to learn more and more. There are two pumps - a "front and rear". Are they obvious when you pop the hood...........

On my D110 there is blue hose going to the back nozzle and clear hose going to the front nozzle.

OH......FRONT and REAR.

My D90 has no rear wiper or washer (soft top). I am surprised the 110 has this luxury option of a rear wiper and washer

So I should pop the hood, see where the hose goes, and I probably find the pump it sounds like.........

It's attached to the fluid reservoir. You can just apply 12V to the contacts and see if it works. If it doesn't you can get generic Trico Superpumps that fit in-line to take over if you can't get a stock replacement quickly.

Ajh,

I am back on this wiper motor thing.

So clarify - the motor is 'attached' to the reservoir (it does look like it is half in there)? So this means to replace the windshield fluid motor with a stock part I am going to have to replace the entire reservoir??

This is hard to believe - but I guess just a 'land rover' thing.......

Any idea how much that reservoir/pump is going to cost. I think I will be calling Rover's North tomorrow and see what they say.........

Thanks for any thoughts,

Flagg

I just replaced my washer motor. Super easy. Funny thing Was my reservoir was full so when I took the motor off the fluid dumped out all over the place.

You just pull it off the reservoir to do the replacement.

I bought a replacement motor from Atlantic British, and replacing the old pump is probably the easiest job you will ever have on your Rover. Here's what you're looking for:
