206 wipers...

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  1. Hello there, I posted this in a different forum and was directed here as it may be a bit more useful:

    I've got a 206 and the front wipers and washers aren't working - they are stuck in the middle of the windscreen at the moment. The rear washer and wiper work fine.

    I've checked every fuse and they are all fine. Ive also looked on the interweb and found instructions to reboot the BMI system and that hasn't worked either.

    I've phoned a specialist who says that this is a common problem but he wants £575 to fix it - bugger that. Has anybody on here had this problem before and has any idea how to fix it, or has had it fixed at a more reasonable price?

    Any info would be a great help,


  2. * Put down the drivers window.
    * Pop and Open the bonnet. Shut ALL DOORS apart from the bonnet.
    * Leave the car for at least 3 minutes. This allows the BSI to shut down and go to "sleep."
    * Disconnect the clamps on the battery, and change/do electrics/whatever you are planning to do.

    * When reconnecting, reattach the clamps on the battery. Don't shut the bonnet yet. Leave the car for a few more minutes. This allows the car to settle.
    * Lean through the drivers window, and turn the sidelights on. (Don't open the door.)
    * This is called a "Soft Start" for the BSI.
    * Let the car finish thinking about everything, and check all the systems etc.
    * Start the car.

    ^That all sounds a bit gay realy
