  • NX Windscreen Washers

    Hi Guys, I have to ask a pretty stupid question of the brains trust. I have been getting the windscreen washers on my NX constantly blocked, is there any quick fix to clear them?
    Thanks in advance John

    There will be a build up of mould in your washer bottle. Only way to remedy is to remove the bottle,thoroughly clean and flush out pipes and probably fit new jets. No point just fitting new jets, they will clog again.


    Washer bottle runs along the top inside the drivers front guard.

      You can try a fine wire to clear the jets. A spring from a pen might do it. If it is mold you will need to clean it out.

        Quite a few on the forum have replaced the Gen4 jet nozzles with a Honda part. It provides a better spread of spray to the windscreen. I don't know if it reduces blockages, though. There's a thread here:

          I did the upgrade about a year ago after mine clogged up and failed and they're still going strong. SO much better.

            It seems to be a Pajero thing because it's the only car I've owned in over 50 years of driving that has had this problem and so did my brother in his and 2 or 3 other people I've come across.

            It's a PITA but either removing the plastic cover in the drivers side inner guard and removing the weirdly shaped bottle to clean it out or try flushing into the bottle in situ with a hose then pump the bottle empty with the washer pump then repeat and repeat and repeat.

            I disconnected the supply tube to the windscreen jets then hung the drivers side one in a position to allow me to close the bonnet with it exposed. This allowed me to flip the wipers off the screen then I held the washer switch back and pumped the bottle empty that way between bottle flushes.

            I had to do that because the gunk that came out after every flush would just block the jets again. I did this for I don't know how many cycles but when I'd finished the Paj wouldn't start because the battery was too low. Lucky I have a jump start pack

            Since then I've always had some sort of additive in the water and so far after about 18 months have had no more problems.

              I replaced the jets with the Honda ones and put an inline fuel filter in the hose under the bonnet close to where the water hose goes to the jets. No more problems in over a year!

                not a bad idea at all...

                have you got a pic of where you mounted the filter?

                  Thanks guys looks like I will initially clean out the jets and water bottle and if this doesn't fix it the Honda jets might be the way. Thanks again to the brains trust. John

                    I have replaced mine.

                    The Honda ones are sooooo much better.
                    They also give a fan spray, which covers the windscreen.

                          Keithyv beat me to it.
                          They are cheaper now. When I got them they were $16 each.
                          Honda Aust want $51 each

                            Where have you found them cheaper than $16?

                            Amayama list them for $18.88 + delivery, Partsouq have them listed as unavailable (but list $16.58 + delivery as the price), and eBay is even dearer for genuine OEM ones.

                              Sorry, I was looking at the delivery price.
