Q: Windshield wiper fluid won't spray

asked by on February 01, 2016

The windshield washer is not working even though the reservoir has water. I can't hear the pump working.

The symptoms you describe lead me to believe you have either a washer pump motor that has failed or the connection to the washer pump motor has a break in it. To be 100% certain it may be time to enlist the assistance of a certified mechanic to examine exactly what may be going on here in person. They will be able to diagnose your car’s wiper fluid issue and determine if you have a bad fuse, bad wiring to the washer pump, or if your Mercedes needs to have its washer pump replaced.

You first have to remove the rubber boot back and then the release is on the sides and all you do is squeeze the sides and it should come loose for the sensor.
