Default Washer reservoir repair or replacement ?

I have a 96 Civic and the windshield washers have lost pressure and barely
wet the windshield. I looked under the hood and all the hoses are tight with
no apparent leakage that I can see.

Thus I figure it's the motor - which I believe is attached or part of the
reservoir. Problem is I am insure how to get to it - is it a big job ?

I guess Honda sells the combo: reservoir & motor...

I have the Haynes guide, but there's nothing at all on this..

Any ideas ?

Best regards,


DS

check all the hoses... unplug, and blow thru em. nozzles also get clogged,
as well as the screen on the pump inlet.

id bet on nozzles

Had a similar problem before. Another idea is to check the length of the
hose tubing for any crimping in the line. A clip holding the hose was also
putting a kink in the line. If so, this is an easy and simple fix.

Good luck,
-Dave

remove left front wheel, remove plastic fender liner,

The washer tank and pump are behind that. The pumps can be replaced by
themselves.
