Hi there, need some assistance....

Car: EB Sedan
Issue: Ive replaced the washer bottle motor (cheapo unit from
supercheap auto) and the primary tube from the bottle to the T section.
Ive checked the remainder of the lines up to the squirters and they seem clear.

The problem I have is dud pressure. The squirters are still weak and
just spraying all over the shop. The whole system used to be great,
but it seems stuffed now....

Do you reckon the squirters need replacing?? Are good ones
available??
Get a better washer bottle motor with more power??

Suggestions welcome.

make sure teh connectiosn to the bottle are good
ie the wire in the clips is secure and not frayed

Have already checked the nozzles with a pin, they seem OK,
but I will check on the wiring...
Thanks

When you shut the bonnet is it kinking the tube running to the nozzles? My EB had this problem when I first got it. Just had to rerun the tubes. 8-)

Very common problem! I fixed this for my bro in his EB, and had 2 Skylines do this!

Update:
Lines seem OK.
Have replaced the motor, as the last one was throwing
water into the engine bay as well as into the tube.
(dont buy the ones from Supercheap Auto, got my money back)

New motor is slightly better pressure, but still not as
good as it used to be.

Thats it, im done. It will do, as I am now demented.

Cheers.

mmm have u sealed up around the motor?
the rubber grommet may be letting air in?
and zip tie the ends of the hose to the motor for the same reason

OK.....Finally done.
All working good and strong now.

The solution was:
1. The new motor, "NICE" brand part No NWP500, $18, from Gibbos
Spares (This came with a replacement rubber grommet too)

2. Replace the main feeder tube from the motor to the
T-junction, $1.50

3. Replace the washer nozzles. Could only get the genuine
FORD ones here (as the other type I found wouldn't fit)
$34 a pair, complete rip off, but its working. This was the clincher.

All done. Obsession over.
Thankyou for your help people....
