Headlight washers will not retract
« on: August 02, 2015, 10:05:22 PM »
Hi guys,
Have had a read through but can't find anyone else with the same problem.
My headlight washers are constantly out and will not retract on my mazda 3 2.0 litre sport 08.
When I double pull on the stalk I can hear the motor but nothing comes out and they both stay up.

Has anyone else had this problem?  And is it an easy fix?
Thanks!!

First time I've ever heard of this.  I would suggest that you check both the fluid and electrical connections from your washer fluid bottle.

This might help you
