How often should I replace a windscreen washer pump?

There is no set interval to replace a windscreen washer pump. When you have symptoms like no washer fluid coming from the washer nozzles, or another of the symptoms listed it is possible the washer pump may need replacing. At an inspection the mechanic will establish, step by step, what the exact fault in the electrical system is before replacing any parts.

Please note, though, when there is no washer fluid being distributed over the window it is not necessarily the washer pump that has failed. In some cases it might be that the wiper switch has failed or that the system has blown a fuse. Equally it could be a loose or corroded wire connector.

How common is a windscreen washer pump replacement?

Although it's a common item, its simplicity, if maintained, means failure happens occasionally rather than regularly.

How can I extend the lifetime of my windscreen washer pump?

The only thing you can do, and this is more important than you may think, is use the right screen detergent at the correct ration. This stops the pump getting clogged up with detergent if it is too undiluted and keeps it lubricated.

Never, ever, use washing up liquid in the washer system. It's not designed for using it and you will clog up the pump as well as producing a string of bubbles each time you spray the windscreen!

How much does it cost to replace windshield washer pump?

Prices for a windscreen washer pump replacement range from £60 to £130 with an average cost of £90. Ultimately, the cost of a windscreen washer pump replacement depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement. Find out what you could save by having your windscreen washer pump replaced by ClickMechanic by selecting your car at the top of this page!
