    Hi wondering if anyone on here can help me as this has got me stumped!

    My parents have a 62 plate Antara and it's been into our local dealership several times as the Window washers aren't working. My Dad and I have had our head under the bonnet yet again this afternoon and still can't fathom it. Pipes are clean, there's no gunk in the resivour. In fact the washer actually works when the bonnet is up, but as soon as it's back down it doesn't - however it is now working slightly on the passenger side. It's as if something is restricting it once the bonnet is down. Any thoughts?

    Do you hear the motor trying to pump the water when the bonnet is down, if so trace the pipes back the the motor, when the bonnet goes down it may be nipping a pipe or kinking it.
