Windscreen washer failure

Post by PhilJ1962 » Thu Sep 05, 2019 10:04 am

Anyone else had their heated windscreen washers fail?

I have just had both mine replaced FoC by the dealer, although this was done as a good will gesture.

Since buying my Cupra Ateca (April 2019) I have been using commercial off the shelf screen wash diluted as per the instructions on the bottle. However, both my windscreen washer jets failed. The dealer informed me this was because I was not using the VW/Audi/Skoda/SEAT approved washer fluid to the correct formulation. Basically the washer jets have aright angle bend inside them. When the washer jet heaters get turned on, none approved washer fluid crystallises at this right angle bend and blocks the washer jets. The only solution is new washer jets.
