How to Buy a Good Quality Windshield Washer Pump

You rely on your windshield washer wipers to clear away all the dirt, slush, grime, rain, and snow. Sometimes a simple wipe isn’t enough, and this is why you turn to your windshield washer pump to provide the cleaning fluid necessary to get the job done. This pump uses mechanical parts, which means it is prone to wear and tear over the years.

What this pump does is distribute the windshield wiper fluid from the reservoir it is kept in, to the hoses, right to the nozzles where it sprays out of. You may have these on both your front and back windshields.

Over time the hoses can actually develop cracks and leaks, so it may not be your windshield washer pump that is to blame. Be sure to have it inspected by your mechanic to know for sure. It could also end up being an electrical issue, which again is better left to a mechanic.

When shopping for a new pump you can take the old one out and bring it in with you. This will ensure you get the right type, and size for your vehicle. Read the packaging carefully so you are aware of the parts that are used on the motor and the warranty offered.

Thanks to normal wear and tear your windshield washer pump can start to act up, and eventually stop working. At this point you’ll have no other choice but to replace it.

Chevrolet Malibu L4-1.5L Turbo - Windshield Washer Pump Replacement (Front) - Hudson, Ohio
Original quote was about $160, which included 1 hours of labor cost. James showed me the standard was actually 2 hours, which resulted in a charge of $285 for the windshield washer pump replacement. So, you may want to check your quoting system. James performed the pump replacement efficiently. The windshield washer worked as expected. Appreciated the convenience of having the work performed in front of my home garage.

Ford Escape L4-2.3L - Windshield Washer Pump Replacement (Front) - Portland, Oregon
This was my first time using Your Mechanic. I don't think I'll ever take my car to a shop again! Andrew arrived early for the appointment. They sent a tracker to my phone so I could see where he was at while en route. He was super friendly and knocked the job out quicker than I have ever seen anyone work on a car before. I had him replacing a windshield fluid pump requiring him to take the front tire off and getting behind the wheel well. He finished the job in about 20 minutes, cleaned up and was out of there. Super impressed and will definitely use this service again and again.

He actually got here early which was much appreciated. He went to a lot of trouble to fix the problem which wasn't immediately apparent.
